Men vs. Women on Financial Planning

Also True for Medical Professionals?

Join Our Mailing List 

Statistics show that men and women handle money differently. While there are exceptions to every rule, men generally are better prepared for retirement, are more willing to put money into savings, pay off credit card balances in full and are more educated about investing. Men are also more prepared for unemployment, which is fortunate because there are more unemployed men than women in the U.S. and the growth of the unemployment rate for men is currently outpacing the unemployment rate for women.

But, is the above true of male and female doctors and medical professionals?

    This infographic illustrates the success and independence that women have now experienced. Not only in relationships and family, but in business & education, have women see increasing gains of power.



  2. The Truth About Work / Life Balance

    Most of us strive to achieve a balance between our professional and personal lives. The key question: Is such a balance possible?

    There are numerous pieces of advice, articles and books devoted to the concept of work / life balance. It’s something that most Americans strive to achieve.

    It’s too bad that, in the opinion of many, such a balance may not really exist.



  3. On the Gender Burnout of Doctors

    I don’t know about financial planning gender differences but physician burnout presents differently in male and female doctors.

    And, numerous studies have shown that an average of 1 in 3 practicing physicians are suffering from symptomatic burnout on any given office day worldwide, regardless of specialty.
