128: The Secret to Losing Weight with Katrina Ubell, MD

Wealthy Mom MD with Bonnie Koo | The Secret to Losing Weight with Katrina Ubell, MDDo you know the secret to losing weight? Well, my guest this week has written an incredible book on exactly this subject, and she’s here to discuss her story of losing weight as a busy physician. She's giving us some valuable insight into how we can start approaching weight loss differently, and of course, there are so many parallels to draw between weight loss and money, so we really cover everything.

Katrina Ubell, MD, is a Master Certified life and weight-loss coach who struggled with her own weight for decades until she found a permanent solution. Since creating her weight loss program, she’s helped over 1300 physicians achieve peace and freedom around food, and she’s here to share some truly valuable information with us.

Tune in this week to discover the secret to losing weight permanently. Katrina is here to share why losing weight doesn’t need to involve extreme dieting and restriction, and why the real results come when you address your thoughts and your relationship with food, making weight loss a side effect of the deeper work.

Wealthy Mom MD with Bonnie Koo | The Truth About Grief with Krista St-Germain

127: The Truth About Grief with Krista St-Germain

127: The Truth About Grief with Krista St-Germain

Wealthy Mom MD with Bonnie Koo | The Truth About Grief with Krista St-GermainI’ve been getting great feedback about my recent guest interviews, so I have another one this week. This time, I’m welcoming my good friend and fellow coach Krista St-Germain. She is a Master Certified life coach who helps widowed moms through the grieving process. And while you might not be grieving right now, you need to listen closely because it turns out that pretty much everything we’re taught about grief isn’t necessarily true.

Grief is an inevitable part of life, but even more commonly, there will always be a time in our lives when people we know are grieving the loss of a loved one. So many people don’t know how to show up for the people in their lives under these circumstances, we don’t know what to say, and things can get pretty weird, so we’re talking about how to navigate all of those situations.

Tune in this week to discover the truth about grief and why it’s a bigger part of your life than you might realize. Krista is sharing her story, her wisdom about helping yourself or others through a period of grief, and why your thoughts and feelings are the key to understanding your experience of grief.

Join me for my upcoming workshop, The Secret to Unshakable Confidence. There are two dates: Sunday Sept. 18th, 2022 and Wednesday Sept. 21st, 2022. Click here to learn more and sign up! 

Learn more about Live Wealthy, an exclusive coaching program designed for successful women who want to be confident.... and be rich.

What You'll Learn from this Episode:

  • Krista’s story and why she became a life coach for widowed moms.
  • What Krista means when she talks about post-traumatic growth.
  • The falsehoods we’ve been led to believe about grief, for instance, “the five stages of grief”.
  • Why grief is something we go through when we lose anything and it’s not restricted to losing people.
  • What grief looks like as it relates to your career.
  • Why you can experience grief even as the result of a perceived positive outcome.
  • Everything you need to know to work through your own grief, whatever that looks like for you, or help others with theirs.

Wealthy Mom MD with Bonnie Koo | My Goal Planning Process

126: My Goal-Planning Process

126: My Goal-Planning Process

Wealthy Mom MD with Bonnie Koo | My Goal Planning ProcessIn a recent episode I shared about how I manage my time, I recommended a planner I use to map out my business and personal goals. Friends and clients who listened in got it for themselves and are enjoying it, but I’ve started noticing a few things that I want to talk about today.

So many planners are focused on getting things done, which is important of course. But if you’re in my world and you’re familiar with the Model, focusing on getting shit done solely looks at the action line, when in reality, we need to peel back a few layers to really get the most out of our goal planning. 

Join me this week as I give you the lowdown on how I think about goals and plan them out. I’m offering questions I ask myself in the process of mapping out my goals, why you don’t need to know the exact steps to get to where you want to go, and the power of looking at whether your thoughts are in support of what you’re trying to achieve.

What You'll Learn from this Episode:

  • How I think about goals and plan them out. 
  • The questions I ask myself when I set annual and quarterly goals. 
  • What having self-discipline means to me. 
  • How to anticipate the obstacles you might face along the way to your goals.
  • Why you don’t have to know the step-by-step action plan to work on your goals.

We’re talking about sex on the podcast, and I have my good friend and fellow physician coach Dr. Kelly Casperson on because, while many of us are high-achievers who are getting better at building wealth in the bank, we perhaps aren’t so wealthy in the sex department.

Kelly is sharing her tips for having sex, giving us her perspective on the missing pieces in sex education, and why no matter what your relationship with sex is right now, there is nothing wrong with you.

121: Failure: The Path to True Wealth

Wealthy Mom MD | Failure: The Path to True WealthTrue wealth is about so much more than just money. It’s something you can create and experience in all areas of your life, from living authentically to feeling more confident in your day-to-day. And in my work, I often see one huge obstacle that is getting in the way on your path to wealth: failure. 

The truth is that the more fails we accumulate throughout our lives, the closer we are to achieving what we really want. But the sad reality is that we’re taught the opposite. We’re told we should fear and avoid failure at all costs, and I’m challenging this notion on this week’s podcast. 

Join me this week to discover why I believe we need to erase the word failure from our vocabulary. I’m sharing some personal failures I’ve experienced throughout my life, how I’ve shifted my perspective on them, and how you too can start transforming how you experience your failures.
