Looking for a little bit of guidance. As some of you may already know, I recently lost my in-laws. https://forum.ih8mud.com/showpost.php?p=1336960&postcount=6 Doc & I were very close, I ran his clinic for the past 15 years & in his passing he really took care of me financially. He left me roughly twice what I need to be debt free (mortgage, autos, cards… everything). The problem is that I don’t know what I want to be when I grow up, which should really be any day now since I am closing in on 40. I have taken almost all of my prerequisites for med school, but at my age & with kids 5, 7 & 11 years old, I know that I would rather be w/ them & my wife than in med school. I guess it was something I always wanted, but I missed the boat. My wife started nursing school today (last two years of a BSN program), & I am contemplating this route. I really like medicine & I would only need to take 12 more hours of classes to get accepted, & grades are not an issue, my only B was in organic. I am still pissed about that one! I own three Exmark mowers & everything else I need to start a lawn service, & I really dig the work. My concern here is longevity. So… my questions are. 1) What would you do career wise? 2) Would you pay off everything? 3) Would you invest & how? I am going to see a financial advisor next week, but I would really like some input from you guys. Running another clinic is not an option. I have turned that corner.
