71: Mom Guilt

The Wealthy Mom MD Podcast with Dr. Bonnie Koo | Mom GuiltAs women, we’re socialized throughout our lives to take care of everyone else, and then, if there’s anything left over, maybe we can take care of ourselves too. We’re conditioned to listen to the opinions of others and disregard our opinions about ourselves.

This needs to change because these beliefs we have as women are only magnified when we become mothers. This is especially true for breadwinning moms where this shows up as serious mom guilt. And it’s not only impacting how you show up as a parent, but also your bank balance.

Tune in this week to put your mom guilt into perspective and see how you can pursue your goals, earn more, and invest how you want to without it affecting how you show up as a parent. Prioritizing yourself will look different for everyone, but by the end of this episode, you’ll see exactly how you can do this work in your life.
