Episode 43 – Can Veterinarians Really Live A Rich Life? featuring Dr. Grace Kim

Talking about money can be a huge emotional drain; veterinarians are forced to have these discussions all day long with pet owners. You can see why dealing with their own finances is probably the last thing a veterinarian wants to do after work. Dr. Grace Kim of Richer Life DVM joins me on this episode to share ideas on why it is worthwhile to get your personal finances in order, even if you’re sick of the money talk. She also shares some tactical advice on how to get started with finances if you think that money is just “not your thing.” We both feel very strongly that getting a handle on your personal finances is a major step in improving your overall well-being, so please give this episode a listen!

I’m Stacey

I want veterinarians to become happier, healthier, wealthier and more grateful for this life that we’ve created.

I understand the struggles of a stretched-too-thin veterinarian. I have also learned that with some individual work, there is a brighter side to veterinary medicine. Personal and financial development strategies have helped me find a happier place in my life and in my work. I hope to share resources that will resonate with my fellow veterinarian to allow you to become a more whole person.
