EP 81: Med School Life Financial Independence

September 3, 2022

Financial security is extremely important and can give you a lot more power to take a stand for yourself. 

Dr. Elizabeth Chiang, our featured guest, learned the significance of both financial independence and education in childhood, learning that "wealth is not just what you make but what you keep".  Our conversation spans from her childhood, into her medical school years and beyond. Astonishingly, she began her path towards financial independence in medical school when she purchased her first investment property. Her money mindset has allowed her to save, invest and secure her financial future and freedom and now she coaches others on how to do the same.

EP 80: Saving Myself

EP 80: Saving Myself

August 27, 2022

Your mental health and wellbeing should always be a priority. It is okay to be unsure of your decisions sometimes. It's okay to even switch careers.  But, what is not okay, is to give up on your passion simply to please society and seek validation externally. In this episode we feature Dr. Kanene Ubesie, a trauma surgeon and "professional degree collector" (in addition to trauma surgery, Dr. Ubesie has specific training and expertise in general surgery, surgical critical care, burns, wounds and recently obtained her MBA) who shares with us her personal journey in medicine as a double minority: black and a female.  She opens up about the challenges she has experienced along the way and the role therapy has played in her life. One of the most profound and life altering realizations she made at a particularly low point in her journey was that "the only person who was going to save me is me".  Dr. Ubesie's story is one of resilience, courage and passion.  She is a true inspiration.
