Dr. Latifat Akintade is a remarkable individual who has transformed her life and the lives of countless others through her expertise in personal finance and her compassionate approach to teaching. However, her journey to success was far from conventional.

"I wasn't always like this," Dr. Akintade reflects, acknowledging her personal transformation. As a recovering people pleaser and self-sacrificing ex-broke physician, she intimately understands the struggles and challenges that many individuals face when it comes to managing their finances.

In her early years, Dr. Akintade had minimal knowledge about money. Despite her medical expertise, she found herself banging her head against walls while trying to fit into the traditional bucket of financial education. Realizing that continuing down that path would only lead to frustration and setbacks, she made the brave decision that a hematoma wouldn't look good on her.

Today, Dr. Latifat Akintade’s journey serves as a testament to the power of self-discovery and the importance of breaking free from societal expectations. Through her work, she continues to touch lives, opening doors for individuals to embrace financial freedom, joy, and fulfillment.
