From the outside, you have it all: the advanced degree and fulfilling career, the loving family and nice home. But inside, it’s a different story. Student loans and credit card debt still follow you around and living paycheck to paycheck feels like you’ve missed an important memo only your financially-free counterparts have received.
You’re relying on the next promotion and big raise to feel better about your finances, but what if making more money isn’t the solution you need? What if you could have all the money you want with a few simple adjustments?
Changing your financial status—like many things in life—is mind over matter: The way you think about money impacts the amount of money you have.
In Defining Wealth for Women, Bonnie Koo, MD, shows you why everything you’ve ever learned about money is probably wrong. She reveals the common misconceptions and limiting beliefs that many professional women have when it comes to money, helping you see what’s possible when you break through the self-imposed ceiling you’ve created. Even if you’ve never struggled with finances, this book helps you take your financial status to the next level and make your money work for you.
PRAISE FOR DEFINING WEALTH FOR WOMEN
"In many ways, women start out their financial lives with one arm tied behind their back. Dr. Koo will help you even the playing field and reach your financial dreams!"
-James M. Dahle, MD
Founder, White Coat Investor
"This book is an invitation for women to challenge the common belief that it is taboo to talk about money. It is not only okay to talk about money, but it is critically important for women to talk about money if we ever want to earn equal pay or have equal economic power."
-Sunny Smith, MD
Founder, Empowering Women Physicians
"Dr. Bonnie Koo is the voice professional, ambitious women need to feel empowered about their money choices. She is an excellent example of someone who went from being in debt to becoming an investing powerhouse. She is a trusted voice in the personal finance space and someone many women, myself included, look up to."

"Many financial experts view money as if it’s a math problem with an easy formula, setting women up for frustration when the formula doesn’t work. Dr. Koo takes us for a non-jargon stroll through the brain’s architecture and natural instincts that can trip us up on money and society’s women-specific programming that pile-on those instincts. Armed with the truth, we learn how to make, own and manage our money confidently."

-Letizia Alto, MD
Host, Rich Doc Poor Doc podcast

-Hala Sabry, DO, MBA
Founder, Physician Moms Group and Feminist Legacy Coach
"If you want to learn the truth about your own money beliefs and exactly how to change them, this is a must-read."
-Natalie Bacon, JD, CFP
"Every woman needs this book. We have to start the change we want to see so that our daughters and granddaughters aren’t still fighting for true financial equality and equal pay. The change starts with us at an individual level and our socialized beliefs, many of which we’re unaware of, that are holding us back. Bonnie's book is a roadmap on everything you need to begin that journey. A must read!"
-Linda Street, MD
Host, Simply Worth It podcast
