Done With Broke

Latifat Akintade

As a physician, your skills help you earn an income well above the national average. But life is expensive. Between financial illiteracy and increased living expenses, a financial education has never been more vital—and for women physicians facing systemic oppression, it’s often a rare commodity.

Broke and creeping toward burnout after fellowship training, Dr. Latifat Akintade refused to relinquish control of her professional future. She transformed her finances and founded MoneyFitMD School, equipping women physicians with the knowledge they need to eliminate debt and live a joy-filled life. In Done With Broke, Dr. Akintade explains the principles of financial management for physicians, showing how to break free from the cycle of overworking and overspending to stop worrying and live the life you want. Done With Broke presents these same fundamentals with a customizable roadmap and the first steps for expense analysis. Learn how to speak the language of money with this must-read for every woman physician who wants to preserve their gains, secure success, and take back control of their future.

Dr. Latifat Akintade is a true champion of female physicians, educating and empowering them to reach financial independence and freedom. She is a thought leader and guide for those who want to challenge cultural norms around what it means to have and spend money as a woman. If you're a woman physician looking to change your relationship with money, I highly suggest reading this book and putting its actionable framework to work to redefine your relationship with money and, ultimately, claim real wealth.

It is impossible to calculate how much women physicians gain from being coached by Dr. Latifat Akintade. So many of have been stuck working to pay bills rather than practicing medicine (on our own terms) and living out our callings. Her wealth of knowledge empowers us to truly understand and achieve financial success and true wealth. All women physicians (and especially women physicians of color) should read her book if they are ready to have a rich life today while planning for tomorrow.

I'm so glad Dr. Akintade has packaged her GENIUS into a book! If you ever felt overwhelmed about money, and maybe judged yourself for what you felt were dumb decisions in hindsight, grab a cup, find a cozy corner, and dive right in. Her conversations about money in this book are like a welcome hug from a friend that 'gets you.' No blame. No shame. Just sound concepts to help you step into the fullness of your money strength as a Woman Physician!
