56: (Part 1) Women Breadwinners with Alison Armstrong

The Wealthy Mom MD Pocast with Dr. Bonnie Koo | (Part 1) Women Breadwinners with Alison ArmstrongWelcome to the first in a two-part series focusing on women breadwinners. As the breadwinner in my family, this is a subject close to my heart. I’ve also seen so many of the same common hang-ups coming up for my clients, and as female physicians, I think it’s incredibly important that we address them over the next couple of episodes.

To talk about the complex relationship dynamics facing female breadwinners and their partners, I have relationship expert Alison Armstrong on the show. I first came across Alison and her work 20 years ago now, and when I came across her again recently reading a book on this exact subject, I knew she’d have some real pearls of wisdom to share with all of you.

Tune in this week as Alison and I discuss the unique challenges that women breadwinners face, the mistakes we often make, and how we can have an overall better and a more fulfilling experience if we take the time to work on ourselves and our relationship.
