  • As doctors, starting a side gig may be the last thing you want to hear that takes even longer.

  • Many of us want to retire early so that we can spend the rest of our days doing what we love most.

At least not without penalty in most cases. So how do you close the gap? The author shares useful tips in the article – 6.5 ways to overcome the gap between early retirement and age 59.5.
