Did you know that you probably think about money differently than your husband, your brother, male co-workers or boss? What impact is that having in your financial behaviors, and how might you go about re-wiring your brain if needed? I’m Yael Trusch, your Host, welcome to Jewish Latin Princess. Today I’m talking to Best Selling Author, Financial Therapist & Wealth Coach, Barbara Huson, formerly Stanny. You might remember her from Episode #4 of this show. One of my most popular episodes actually, and for good reason. She is fabulous! And now she’s back! She has a new book about to hit stores January 2020 which you can pre-order now. It’s called Rewire for Wealth: Three Steps Any Woman can Take to Program her Brain for Financial Success. The book has received accolades from industry experts such as David Bach and others.
But before I bring her on, a few announcements.
1- I’d like to remind you again that if you pick up the Holiday issue of Real Simple Magazine, you should take a snapshot of what I wrote in there on Holiday gifting and post it onto your IG stories tagging me and Real Simple. You will be automatically entered in a raffle for a chance to win a one year subscription of Real Simple Magazine.
2- Also, I’m doing an 8 day Chanukah Challenge inside my free private facebook group Jewish Money Matters. I’m calling it “Money Miracles” and it’s going to be a fun way to highlight and focus on financial miracles in particular. So, if you’re not a member of the group yet, head over to Facebook and request access to Jewish Money Matters where I will be posting the details and the rules of the game :-).
I can’t wait to hear from all of you and for us to share our financial miracles during this holiday of light and holiday of miracles.
Someone posted recently, “We all want miracles. The problem is that we don’t believe in them.”
How sad and true. But, I know that my audience does believe in miracles. And the truth of the matter is that there’s something very powerful about going back and introspecting, finding those financial miracles from big to small (and I know we’ve ALL had them), and then articulating these and sharing with others. It helps cement the faith and live with more trust. And as the lamp lighters that we are, by sharing our personal Money Miracles, we’re not only strengthening ourselves, but we in turn, inspire those of us in the group reading and help others see their own miracles, strengthen their faith and their trust. And ultimately that trust translates into more miracles, more tranquility and more wealth.
So, who’s on? Of course there will be prizes! Head over to Jewish Money Matters on Facebook and request access, if you’re not a part of the group already. And let’s do this!
Ok so, let’s talk about my guest. You should definitely go back to Episode 4 and listen to Barbara’s riches to rag’s story and how she finally started taking her money seriously. Because I know that you will be able to learn so much from her story of growth and perseverance as well as the spiritual insights that have helped her all along the way and which she generously shares with others.
Today, our conversation takes a different angle and we talk all about her latest book and how Barbara has been using neuroscience to help coach her students. The process of building wealth says Barbara, is not so much about the money – dollars in the bank – , as it is about the woman we have to become in order to be a container that can attract, sustain, and build that wealth. What do we know about the brain which can help us make shifts in our lives today? Are we stuck in a particular financial situation forever? Obviously no, and we have a lot more power over this than we think! But, more than that, it’s all easier than you might. Listen to Barbara’s recommendations and start rewiring your brain. Here’s the lovely Barbara Huson.
