My Story

Who I am…

My name is Dr. Jeff Anzalone and I’m a periodontist in Louisiana. A few short years ago I started to worry about my family’s financial future.

As a solo practitioner, if something happened to me, then no other income would be coming in.

What if I became injured? ( I like to ski and play tennis!)
What if I became disabled?
What if burnout started to set in?

Not good.

These concerns made me take a hard look at our financial future and I realized that something needed to be done.

Why I do this…

Most doctors have only ONE source of income, their earned income from working. Myself included….until a few short years ago.

Now I’ve learned how to build multiple streams of passive income so that slowly but surely I’m replacing my active income each year.

One day I looked up and realized that I was keeping all of this new found information to myself whereas most of it had been given to me in some form or fashion.

This sparked me to start this blog to share the word to other doctors and high-income earners that you can truly stop trading time for money and start living your life on your on terms.

Here’s a little bit about me and where I started from….

Anzalone Family

Financial Freedom

During my research, I noticed that most people who were achieving financial freedom quickly were doing so through investing in real estate.

This sounded interesting to me, but I knew that I didn’t want to be a landlord and have to give up precious family time.

Most of these people were passively investing in real estate via crowdfunding, so I decided to give it a try.

After trial and error (and losing several thousands of dollars early on), I figured out what it took to invest in cash flowing real estate while also drastically reducing our tax bill.

I now have the time and resources to enjoy my life and family without having to constantly trade my valuable time for money.

Student Loan Debt

After completing dental school and a residency at LSU, I owed close to $300,000 in student loans, along with other consumer debt.

Two weeks before graduation, my job offer fell through, leaving my wife and I with a two-month-old and nowhere to go.

This led me to start a practice from scratch, and after seven long and intentional years, we became debt-free.

Along the way, I became passionate about sharing my debt-free journey, the strategies I was learning, and basic investing principles with other doctors and high-income professionals.

That’s how Debt Free Doctor originally started, to help others learn the strategies they needed to get out of debt.

Once I became debt-free, I then began to search for ways to put our money to work for us and shelter our income from taxes.

This was especially crucial since, once the majority of the practice and equipment had been depreciated, our tax bill skyrocketed.

My Goal For You

My new purpose is to teach you everything I’ve learned along the way so you too can reach financial freedom much quicker than you’d ever thought possible. If you’re ready to learn, then I’ve created a FREE guide that will teach you what you need to do to get started in creating passive income with real estate.
