    Do THIS to create financial FREEDOM with Dr. Latifat Akintade

    Do you ever feel like you're stuck in a cycle of living paycheck to paycheck?

    No matter how much you earn..

    It's like the money flows in, but before you know it, it's gone.

    Leaving you feeling financially insecure and reliant on that steady paycheck.

    But what if I told you there's a way to break free from that cycle and live life on your own terms?

    That's exactly what I discovered in my conversation with Dr. Latifat, Money Coach for Women Physicians.

    She went from living paycheck to paycheck as a new gastroenterologist attending to taking a year-long sabbatical traveling the world with her family.

    How did she do it?

    By changing her relationship with money.

    And in our conversation, we didn't just talk about budgets and investments;

    We talked about how to trade a good life for a great one. How to live in such a way that you have NO regrets.

    If you're tired of feeling financially stuck.

    If you are ready to start using money to design your dream life,

    then this episode is a must-listen.

    Tune in and discover how you can transform your relationship with money and unlock the freedom to live life on your own terms.

    The safety of a regular paycheck or the possibilities in following your passion and trusting in what the universe has in store for you?

    MY Life After Medicine: Choosing Sobriety in a World Obsessed With Alcohol

    MY Life After Medicine: Choosing Sobriety in a World Obsessed With Alcohol

    This week I celebrated one year of being alcohol free.

    To start my sober life, I had to follow my gut feeling and choose not to drink, even though our society often revolves around alcohol.

    This has probably been my biggest challenge in authenticity to this day.

    And that's what I want to talk about on this episode.

    How do you find and follow your authentic path, especially when it's different and no one else seems to be on it?

    Is it really worth it to be true to yourself if it's hard and goes against what everyone else is doing?

    Why not just fit in with everyone else?

    This is what I am going to answer in my new monthly series, "My Life After Medicine.”

    Where every first Thursday of the month, I'll share what I’ve experienced since leaving the medical field.

    I Love My Job but...

    I Love My Job but...

    “I love my job but…… the hours are brutal, I hate dealing with insurance companies, the 15 min patient visits are way too rushed.”

    If you are feeling unsatisfied in your career, you probably have a similar list of complaints.

    And while you are completely justified in complaining about your current situation… I’m sure you’ve noticed that complaining doesn’t get you very far.

    One of my fav spiritual teachers Eckhart Tolle says "When you complain, you make yourself a victim. Leave the situation, change the situation, or accept it. All else is madness.”

    But….. how do you know when to do which thing? When is it time to leave? When is it time to change? And when is it time to accept your situation?

    In this episode I give you a little dose of “tough love Tuesday’s” as I answer this question.

    Tune in to learn how to use your low key dissatisfaction as fuel for creative problem solving.

    Have you ever dreamed of cutting your work hours, going part-time or maybe even taking a nice dreamy sabbatical- but then start feeling panicked by the money. You wish you could just win the lottery so you didn’t have to worry about money- because the reality is- with your current lifestyle, you need almost every single penny of your income just to make ends meet.

    This is why I am so excited to bring you this conversation with Katarina Astrup, financial expert and founder of PA the FI way- to discuss how we can shift our relationship with money.

    In this episode we discuss how to start approaching your financial life in a way that finally sets you free (no lottery winning required).

Great inspiration

This podcast has been instrumental in my journey to finding an aligned career and overall aligned life! She explores mindset changes, burnout recovery, alternative healing paths, and previous wounds. It gives us healthcare workers hope and normalizes what so many of us are feeling! Chels is great and working with her one on one has changed my life!

Tnics ,

Chelsea is an inspiration!

There is a deep cynicism in medicine that is hurting physicians, as we lose more power and control over our lives to the increasingly corporatized healthcare system. Chelsea helps bring hope and joy back to life after medicine!
