Welcome to Episode 104 of Building My Legacy.
In this podcast, we talk with “The Female Money Doctor” Nikki Ramskill who is laying the foundation for her legacy now while still working full-time at her career. Nikki, an obstetrician/gynecologist who became a family physician, discovered that many of her patients had money issues that impacted their health. Even in the United Kingdom, where health care is free, Nikki saw patients who were unable to work and didn’t have money set aside for an emergency. As a result, they couldn’t take care of their family or even think about planning for the future.
Her solution was to set up the blog, The Female Money Doctor. Today through her blog, a Facebook group for women, and online interaction with individuals, Nikki provides the help needed by many people, particularly women, who are stressed out by money concerns. While, in the past, many of the people who sought her help faced a personal crisis, such as an accident or serious illness, today many more of us have been affected by the COVID pandemic. That makes this the perfect time to learn more about how to prepare yourself financially for a loss or reduction in your income.
So if you want to know:
- How the eight personality types relate to money management
- The importance of carrying on with your plans — even in light of the continuing effects of the COVID pandemic
- How a money coach can help you
- The top things you should think about now with respect to your finances
- Why many women would rather talk about death than money
- Why your children need to learn about money management when they’re young
