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.

Dr. Manasa Mantravadi, a board-certified pediatrician, mom of 3 young kids and an Indian immigrant ... grew up using stainless steel at the dining table.  After making the mistake of buying plastic dinnerware - her mother stepped in concerned about the dangers of plastics. Grandma soon replaced the cupboards with traditional Indian steel dishes. 5 years later, the AAP backed grandma's concerns with science, publishing that certain chemicals can interfere with a child's hormones, growth and development.  Discussing this policy statement with her fellow pediatrician moms, Dr. Mantravadi quickly realized there were no great options for parents. So, Ahimsa was born – a perfect mix of her love for children, background in medicine and Indian heritage.
