107: Money Doesn’t Make You Happy

The Wealthy Mom MD Podcast with Dr. Bonnie Koo |  Money Doesn’t Make You HappyToday’s episode is going to be a little different. I have one big announcement, so keep listening for that. But first, I want to take a little time to discuss my journey with all of you. You’ll know that my name is Bonnie, I’m a dermatologist, a mother, and a coach. But in this episode, I’m formally reintroducing myself because things are changing over here.

As I look back on the last few years, after residency, my first attending job, and having my son Jack, I was working in private practice, just starting to work on growing my wealth and financial independence, on this journey, I always wanted more. I thought that if I had more money, I’d be happier. But I’ve learned that achieving external goals doesn’t lead to permanent satisfaction.

Tune in this week to discover why being financially independent or wealthy isn’t the secret to happiness. I’ve learned that enjoying life right now is a skill, and I’m sharing how my coaching has evolved and is still evolving to include more incredible and insightful topics besides money.
