Are you excited to kickstart your journey towards financial empowerment together with your new money best friends? Well, guess what? The 1st Episode of the Wealth Minded MD podcast is finally here, and we're gearing up to take you on a ride through the world of money matters. In this episode, we'll talk about what lies ahead for this NEW podcast in each episode and why you won't want to miss a single moment of our weekly conversations.


Real Talk About Money and More because “Life is Lifing” 

Life is full of surprises, both good and bad, and managing the complexities of everyday life can sometimes feel overwhelming. That's why, here at Wealth Minded MD, we're committed to keeping it real with our "Life is Lifing" segment. While our primary focus is on finance, we understand that money is deeply intertwined with all aspects of life. From navigating career transitions to managing unexpected expenses, we're here to offer support and solidarity as we navigate life's financial journey together.


According to an article by CNBC, nearly 60% of Americans live paycheck to paycheck, with little to no savings to fall back on in case of emergencies. This financial instability can lead to stress, anxiety, and a sense of helplessness. By openly discussing our own struggles and triumphs, we hope to create a safe space where listeners can feel seen, heard, and understood.



Getting Real About Our Financial Struggles at our “Money Mistakes & Confessions”

Let's face it – we've all made money mistakes at some point in our lives. Whether it's overspending on unnecessary purchases or neglecting to save for the future, financial missteps are a natural part of the learning process. In our "Money Mistakes & Confessions" segment, we're getting candid about our own financial faux pas and sharing valuable lessons learned along the way.


For example, Lisha opens up about her recent transition to a new job as an attending physician, which brought unexpected expenses like medical certifications and fees that she hadn't fully anticipated. While her job reimburses many of these costs, the delay between paying upfront and getting reimbursed creates temporary cash flow issues. This highlights the importance of having a robust emergency fund to cover unforeseen expenses.


Similarly, Brittne shares her approach to financial management, which focuses on automating savings and contributions to retirement accounts. However, she acknowledges that unexpected expenses, like taxes, can throw a wrench in the plan. To counter this, she automates contributions to a separate tax account and suggests a similar approach for medical expenses, creating a specific fund to cover these costs in advance.


By sharing our own experiences, we hope to normalize the idea that nobody is perfect when it comes to money management. We're all learning and growing, and by acknowledging our mistakes, we can take proactive steps to avoid repeating them in the future.


Empowering You to Take Control of Your Finances

Our podcast isn't just about sharing stories – it's about empowering you to take control of your finances and build a brighter future. In our "Financial Focus" segment, we're laying out our mission and vision for the Wealth Minded MD community.


As physicians, we've witnessed firsthand the impact that financial stress can have on individuals and families. According to a report by Bankrate, money remains the leading cause of stress for Americans, with the majority of adults citing it as a significant source of anxiety.


We believe that financial education is key to alleviating this stress and empowering individuals to make informed decisions about their money. That's why we're dedicated to providing practical tips, actionable strategies, and expert insights to help you achieve your financial goals.


Whether you're drowning in debt, trying to figure out how to make ends meet, or sitting on a nice nest egg but feeling unsure about what comes next, we've got you covered. We're all about providing support and solidarity, no matter what stage you're at. We want to be your friends as you navigate this journey because guess what? We're on it too!

According to a survey conducted by Bankrate, nearly 56% of Americans are unsure how much money they should save for retirement. This lack of clarity can lead to anxiety and uncertainty about the future. By providing clear, actionable advice, we aim to empower listeners to take control of their financial future and plan for a comfortable retirement.

Because Life's Too Short To Skimp On Fun — Even And Especially With Money! 

We believe that life's too short to skimp on fun, and we're here to show you how to enjoy life's pleasures without breaking the bank.


According to new research from the McCombs School of Business at The University of Texas at Austin, spending money on experiences rather than material possessions leads to greater long-term happiness. By investing in experiences that bring us joy, we can create lasting memories and enrich our lives in meaningful ways.


Whether it's treating yourself to a fancy outfit for a special occasion or splurging on high-quality workout gear to stay motivated, we'll share our favorite fun money adventures and invite you to join the fun. From indulging in a little luxury to finding joy in the small things, we show that fun doesn't have to break the bank.
