Underearning is NOT Inevitable: How to Demand Your Worth & Advocate For Yourself Like the Badass You Are! w/Dr. Latifat Akintade

podcast Feb 24, 2022

Female physicians are painfully aware of the gap between our enormous earning potential, the money that we actually end up taking home, and how hard it feels to cross that chasm.

A good majority of physicians don’t know how much they should be making, or even how to advocate for themselves.

At the very worst, they don’t believe they even deserve to make more money.

Unfortunately, this approach isn’t just doing us a disservice, it’s taking away from the professional impact we could be making.

So how do we change this, and even get comfortable talking about money in the first place?

What factors keep setting women up to underearn?

In this episode, I’m joined by money and mindset coach and the founder of MoneyFitMD, Dr. Latifat Akintade.

We talk about how we can have both purpose and wealth as doctors.
