Sounds simple when it’s con- densed into a short profile, right? And you think it must have been her work ethic that got her to her successful self today. Wrong. “It wasn’t the work ethic for me – and this is important. You have to think differently – what I realized is that financial success is a 3- pronged process.” The outer work, she explains is “reading the books and going to classes and under- standing the difference between a stock and a bond and how to negotiate a deal.” The inner work involves “exploring my attitudes and beliefs and decisions about making money.” And finally, the higher work is “the spiritual aspect and that played a big part for me. I really believe that GOD put us all on this earth for a purpose and we can’t possibly pursue our purpose if we’re struggling to make ends meet financially, if we’re financially insecure.”
This was the turning point for her as she began to realize that “there was a part of me that thought my parents would be furious if I took charge and there was a bigger part that thought if I took charge I’d lose everything – that I’m too stupid and I’d rather have my husband do that than me and there was a bigger part that thought if I became financially successful then a man wouldn’t love me. It was only by working on those parts of myself that that’s when things started changing.” Huson recognized that she wanted to do something in the world to use her experience to really help women with finances.
In 2015 Huson wiped the slate clean, cancelled her workshops and through journaling, medita- tion, and prayer she realized she still wanted to help women with their finances but needed to do it in a less traditional way. After reading an article on Neuroscience, she was hooked. Through her extensive research on the subject, Huson realized this was the missing link. She gradually took all the elements she’s most passionate about: spirituality, psychology, and neuroscience and their role in transforming women’s relationship to money.
Fast forward to 2022, based on the number of women going to college and becoming CEO’s at blue chip companies, you’d think women are taking charge of their finances. Wrong. “Study after study shows that women are not doing nearly enough to protect themselves financially,” says Huson. She adds that, “The latest Fidelity study, like so many other studies, prove that the #1 reason women aren’t protecting themselves financially is that they lack confidence.” “Women’s issues with money have nothing to do with money,” she says. “It is our fear of or ambiva- lence toward power. It’s not the money that gives us power, it’s who we have to become to attract, sustain, and grow our wealth.” Huson adds that too many women are waiting to be rescued, but not necessarily by a man. It could be an inheritance, the lottery or just an amorphous something – a type of magical thinking.
With all she’s accomplished as author of seven financial books, individual and group wealth coach, webinar host, contributor to national media outlets, coaching millions of women, and raising three daughters, Huson shows no signs of slowing down. “I love what I do. It is the deep connection with the people I get to coach individu- ally or with the women I get to coach in a group. It feeds my soul. I’m 73 years old and I don’t see myself retiring anytime soon.”
