Welcome back to HOT for your Health! In the next episodes Dr Wright is joined by experts to talk about being 40-ish!! and How to make 40 the new 25 only HAPPIER, RICHER, STRONGER & WISER
The 40th birthday is more than a milestone; it’s the beginning of an incredibly crucial decade in almost every aspect of our lives.
It's time to get our SH-T together.
We don’t want to be 20 again. And we don’t think many of our friends do, either! Instead, we want to apply all that hard-earned wisdom to where we are now – contemplating or enjoying our 40s. Some women start thinking about 40 the day after their 35th birthday. For others it sneaks up, lost among work and family and the chaos of life, until….OMG! Here we are.
In this final episode, celebrating life at 40-ish, Dr Vonda Wright is joined by Dr Latifat Akintade, MD. In addition to her clinical practice, Dr Akintade is a financial advisor and teaches us about fiscal health and the 4 steps to Financial Freedom. Money can be one of the biggest stressors in our health and creating a path to financial freedom can serve as a key component of well-being.
Words from Dr. Latifat: Five years ago, I realized I was broke, overwhelmed, and living paycheck to paycheck. I knew zero about money and was too embarrassed to tell anyone. I knew that in order to practice medicine on my terms, I needed to work on my finances. I realized that in order to provide the kind of home and lifestyle we wanted for our kids and build generation wealth, something had to change. By learning the 20% of personal finance that I needed to win 80% of my personal finance, I was able to pay off my student loans within 2 years. After learning and investing in vehicles such as the stock market, diversified real estate investments, we are well on our way to early financial independence.
