Wealthy Mom MD with Bonnie Koo | The Truth About Overspending

135: The Truth About Overspending

135: The Truth About Overspending

Wealthy Mom MD with Bonnie Koo | The Truth About OverspendingI recently discovered something that’s changed my life, so I know it’s going to help so many of you as well. I had to be willing to look at a money habit that I’ve been avoiding for a while now: my spending. I’ve struggled with my spending my whole adult life. Despite my income increasing over the past 20 years, I still felt like I couldn’t get ahead.

How many of you believe that when you’re earning more, your money problems will just disappear? I know I did, and I often speak to women earning six figures who think the same. We think we need to spend less, but the truth is, it isn’t necessarily about the numbers, or even avoiding spending more than you earn. It’s about what you want to create.

Tune in this week to discover the truth about overspending. I’ve spoken about spending and overspending before, but I recently had some deeper insights into this area. So I’m sharing a new way to calculate if you’re overspending and what to do if you’ve been ignoring your spending for fear of what you might uncover.

Some of you are newer here and there is an important message that you need to hear: let it be simple! As physicians, our super high-achieving brains love to make things complicated.

So, how do we allow ourselves to just let things be simple? Well, listen in to find out.

Tune in this week because I’m sharing why we complicate so many things, especially money, and I’m giving you my tips for simplifying anything you’re dealing with. I’m showing you how to decide for yourself what simplicity looks like for you, and how doing this work will allow you to digest and deal with anything that you’re currently struggling with.

Wealthy Mom MD with Bonnie Koo | How to Accelerate Your Personal Growth

131: How to Accelerate Your Personal Growth

131: How to Accelerate Your Personal Growth

Wealthy Mom MD with Bonnie Koo | How to Accelerate Your Personal GrowthI was recently at the Financial Freedom Through Real Estate Conference in Los Angeles, also known as PIMDCON 2022, curated by Passive Income MD, Peter Kim. At this conference, I learned a lot about the importance of surrounding yourself with like-minded people with a growth mindset, so that’s what we’re talking about today.

I love being around people like this, but I know it’s not quite the norm. When people are just starting on their personal development journey, they tell me they feel lonely because not everyone in their life relates to their goals. This is totally normal, but when we’re around people who are willing to challenge themselves to grow and show up as the best version of themselves, everything changes.

Conferences like this are a great way to meet like-minded people, but in this episode, I’m sharing some of the other amazing ways you can build a community around you, full of people who are committed to their growth and can help you accelerate yours.

What You'll Learn from this Episode:

  • The power of surrounding yourself with other like-minded people who want to be the best version of themselves.
  • Why there’s nothing wrong with having friends who don’t have a growth mindset.
  • 3 ways to meet more people like you, who share your ambition.
  • Some of the amazing things I’ve learned from my mentors and business communities.
  • What to keep in mind as you network and cultivate relationships with people who get things done.

130: How to Be an Agent of Change with Dr. Faryal Michaud

For today’s episode, I have a very special guest: Dr. Faryal Michaud. We’ve been friends for some time, and she has a story to share that we all need to hear. This is the story of Mahsa Amini, who you might have heard of, who tragically died after being arrested by Iran’s “morality police” for wearing her head covering (hijab) incorrectly.

This story is important not just for the women of Iran, but for people all over the world. Dr. Faryal Michaud going over the details of what happened, and discussing why what’s been happening in Iran is something we need to know about, and why the people of Iran want us to have these conversations.

As women in a relatively free country, we need to understand the struggles women face in other parts of the world. Despite setbacks we’ve had in the USA, we have a level of rights and safety that many other countries don’t, so tune in for this opportunity to discuss, learn, and understand why these conversations are so important.

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:

  • What our job is, as coaches, in unlocking people’s potential and reduce human suffering.
  • The rules that have been in place since Iran’s revolution in 1979 dictating that women cover their hair.
  • What happened to Mahsa Amini when the “morality police” decided she’d broken the rules on head coverings.
  • The toll that 43 years of oppression has taken on the people of Iran, both women and men.
  • Why the people of Iran want the rest of the world to shine a light on injustices like this.
  • Dr. Faryal Michaud’s memories of the Iran’s revolution, moving from an imperfect but progressive regime into what it is today.
  • How the Iranian government largely controls the West’s perception of Iran and the Iranian people, versus the reality of what Dr. Faryal Michaud says the Iranian people think.
  • Why it doesn’t matter where you are in the world, freedom is something we have to maintain and fight for all the time.

129: Want Real Self-Confidence? Change This One Thought…

Wealthy Mom MD with Bonnie Koo | Want Real Self-Confidence? Change This One Thought…Are you aware of the role that all-or-none thinking is playing in your life? As humans, our brains want a sense of certainty in order for us to feel safe, so when we look around, we like to label people we see as either good or bad, right or wrong, rich or poor, confident or shy, and so on.

However, we don’t live in absolutes. That’s not how the world works. There’s gradient and nuance in between every extreme, so this week I’m taking a deep dive into all-or-none thinking, why we default to thinking this way, and what you can do about changing it.

Tune in this week to discover how all-or-none thinking is showing up in your life right now, and how different things could be if you could drop this thought habit. I’m showing you why creating unshakable self-confidence doesn’t mean you feel confident 100% of the time, and I’m sharing how to create confidence without an absolute all-or-none mentality.

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:

  • What all-or-none thinking is and how to spot it showing up in your life.
  • How we’re trained from an early age to think of people, situations, or things as good or bad.
  • Why perfectionism makes all-or-none thinking way worse.
  • How to spot where all-or-none thinking is holding you back from creating the results you want for your life.
  • What you can do to start looking at life through a lens of and instead of or.
