Divorce Conversations for Women

Mar 26, 2021

In this episode Rhonda welcomes Barbara Huson. Barbara is the leading authority on women, wealth and power.

Barbara shares several tips on how to change our mindset and deal with that resistance that keeps us from making that change.

  1. The ideal way to work with resistance is to explore it – to ask yourself some really deep questions and think it through: what am I afraid of; why am I afraid…. When you look at your resistance and you explore it, it is amazing what happens.
  2. It’s quite simple to rewire for wealth. It’s only three steps: recognize your negative, unhealthy, or unwanted thought; reframe it, and respond differently.
  3. It is not about the money. It’s who you have to become in order to attract, to sustain and to grow your wealth.

Our guest today was Barbara Huson (previously known as Barbara Stanny). She is the leading authority on women, wealth and power. As a bestselling author, teacher & wealth coach, Barbara has helped millions take charge of their finances and their lives.

Here’s how Barbara describes herself:

I’ve had two divorces, and both those divorces were emotionally devastating. But they were also huge turning points in my life and I had the opportunity to become a different person, a stronger woman because of it. 

I grew up relying on my father (the “R” of H&R Block), then my husband, to manage my inheritance. But early in my marriage, I found out my husband was a compulsive gambler. And here’s the insane part — I continued to let him handle all our finances because that’s how scared and intimidated I was by money.

That didn’t change until a devastating financial crisis became a personal wake-up call. I got tax bills for over $1m for illegal deals my ex got us in. He’d left the country. I didn’t have anywhere close to $1m. And my father wouldn’t lend me the money. I had three daughters — one just a baby, and I was not going to raise them on the street. That’s when I knew I had to get smart. And I did.
