About Doug,

How a healthcare provider became an entrepreneur.

27 years ago my dad suffered a stroke, was hospitalized for a long time, and visits to the hospital defined my future of becoming a doctor.

22 years ago, I had no income, I was dependant on my parents and I wanted an mp3 player, my mother served as a bank, I “paid” her in installments with my allowance.

 18 years ago I used to bought merchandise in physical stores and sold them online because the allowance I had was not enough.

15 years ago my family had financial problems, I was in college far from my hometown and I got scholarships to pay for my medical studies.

4 years ago I had to start from scratch in a new country, where the whole system was completely different from the one I knew, so I adapted myself, and learned from it.

2 years ago I met the credit card rewards game, investments and the FIRE movement, this became a passion.

Nowadays I read books, listen to podcasts, exercise and I am engaged with self-improvement, just as I have been doing medicine, it is time to share my knowledge and help others.

I’m involved in other projects aside from my career in health care, here are some of them.
