Wealthy Mom MD is all about empowering women physicians. In today’s society, women are entering the workplace more and more, building their own careers, and becoming the breadwinners of their households. But have we reached gender equity in our financial and professional lives?
This is a big question, and one I had the privilege of discussing on What's Up Next, a financial freedom podcast hosted by Paul Thompson and Doc G. Joining me in the guest panel were fellow women physicians and financial experts Erin Lowry, author of Broke Millennial and brokemillenial.com, and Carrie Reynolds, host of the Hippocratic Hustle podcast.
Many women in the professional world also double as wives and mothers. Some of us make more money than our spouses or partners. In the podcast, we talk about what this is like and whether or not there’s a power dynamic at play. We also discuss how to balance our professional lives with our personal lives, which includes redefining gender roles and/or outsourcing help."I think the professional woman of today sometimes feels like she has to be superwoman and mommy-guilt is a big part of it."

Women shouldn’t feel the need to do everything – it’s all about finding balance!
In the end, the question that begins the podcast still remains: have we reached gender equity between men and women? The consensus seems to be “not really,” but it doesn’t mean there haven’t been improvements. If anything, as long as we keep having these discussions and as long as women continue to feel empowered to reach their goals and redefine the gender norms of the home and the workplace, things will only continue to get better!
