Episode #46: Money Part 2: With Dr. Latifat Akintade, Personal Finance Expert


We go to medical school because we are committed to serving our community.

Along the way, we accumulate a lot of debt. We're often told not to worry about the money, that we'll make enough and we'll be okay. And, very rarely are we intentionally taught how and what to do about money. 

In fact, almost the opposite is true.

As women, we're socialized to not talk about money, that discussing money is rude. And, if you were raised by parents in traditional gender roles, you may have also been taught that men deal with finances, not women.

This is why we experience not just a gender pay gap, but also, the money confidence gender gap.

Women tend to be less confident and less comfortable managing money.

This week's podcast guest, Dr. Latifat, is on a mission to change that.

In this week's podcast, we discuss how the confidence gap was created and how to start intentionally closing that gap.

Listen in and learn:

  • What's holding you back from having confidence over your money
  • How to stop thinking that money equals greed or that money corrupts
  • How to get over your shame and guilt stories around money
  • How it's true that the more you spend, the more you have
  • How to let go of your fear that you'll never have enough money (this is especially important if you grew up in a home struggling with money).
