“Jordan Grumet is a remarkable man. It is not surprising he has written this remarkable book. His hospice work and conversations with the dying have given him a very special lens into life, work and money and, critically, the balance of the three. This is a profound guide on how to live, and how to die, well.”  –JL Collins, author of the bestseller The Simple Path to Wealth


“Having lost his father at a young age, Dr. Grumet knows life is precarious and time is precious. He teaches us not to squander our lives while making sure we save enough to provide for our loved ones after we die. His financial advice comes from the perspective of a hospice doctor who has learned from his patients the true meaning of life.” –Kristy Shen, co-author of Quit Like a Millionaire and co-creator of millennial-revolution.com


“Doc G is one of the wisest voices in the personal finance world and Taking Stock is his absolute best work. After reading it, you won’t be magically cured from ever feeling a sense of regret. Rather, through heartwarming stories of the terminally ill and gobs of perspective, he walks you through how to live well while financially preparing for life’s unpredictability.” –Julien Saunders, entrepreneur and author of Cashing Out

Jordan Grumet, MD

Jordan Grumet was born in Evanston, Illinois in 1973. His interest in becoming a doctor was ignited when his father, an oncologist, died unexpectedly in the prime of life. This profound loss not only inspired him to practice medicine, it has given him a unique perspective as a financial expert, challenging him to think deeply and critically about concepts like wealth, abundance, and financial independence. After graduating from the University of Michigan, Jordan received his medical degree from Northwestern University, and began practicing Internal Medicine in Evanston, Illinois. He currently is an associate medical director at Journeycare Hospice.


After years of blogging about financial independence and wellness, Doc launched the Earn & Invest podcast in 2018. In 2019 he received the Plutus Award for Best New Personal Finance Podcast and was nominated in 2020 for Best Personal Finance Podcast of the year.
