Our Speakers

Elisa Chiang, MD, PHD

Elizabeth Chiang, or Elisa for short, is a board-certified ophthalmologist and fellowship trained oculoplastic surgeon as well as a life coach. She dove into the world of personal finance and investing as a graduate student during her MSTP (combined MD/PhD program) and set her mind toward FIRE before the term became popularized. She started off investing in stocks and mutual funds. After reading Rich Dad, Poor Dad, I tackled real estate investing and flipped two houses before graduating medical school.

She put real estate investing inside during residency and fellowship which she truly enjoyed. However, when she became burned out working for a hospital system, she turned again to real estate investing as the avenue to financial independence with the possibility of walking away from medicine. Luckily, her real estate journey included an introduction to coaching and mindset. It was really with coaching, that she was able to overcome burnout and started to design her ideal life now, and not waiting until FIRE. 

She became a certified Life Coach through the Life Coach School so she can help others battle burnout, build wealth, and make every day closer to their ideal life. To learn more about Elisa or to work with her, visit her website at

Param Bala, MD

Hi! I'm Param Baladandapani - Radiologist, full time mom, Real estate investor and Mentor to professionals seeking Financial and Time Freedom through Real Estate Investing.

I started investing in the stock market in 2010 and acquired my first rental in late 2013.

In 2019,  a rough career transition rocked my family,. Just as things were finally getting back to normal, the pandemic hit. It was hard to ignore the fact that after years of thinking I had it all figured out, I was precariously still tethered to my job.

I knew it was time to turn things around. Looking at my portfolio, it was obvious that real estate investing was the only fool proof way to accelerate towards my Financial Freedom numbers.  I spent a lot of time and money educating myself.   I acquired multiple Long term and Short term rentals, adopted strategies to optimize returns and  put systems in place for efficiency. Today, I own a multi-million dollar real estate portfolio  in two domestic markets in addition to a few international properties.

Cash flow from these properties helped me become Financially Independent and retire from medicine at 41.
