Getting Real About Money: Identifying Paths to Financial Freedom and Wealth

Are you ready to emerge in the financial sense? No matter what your success level with money, you, too, can take it up a notch and find new ways of approaching your financial goals and dreams! Our September Power Boost speaker Barbara Huson is here with us to help us do just that and you do not want to miss this golden opportunity that is here for you!

When was the last time you really looked at your own financial situation, your financial goals, and assessed how your plans are working? The relationship that women have with money is one that Barbara Huson addresses in her book, “Prince Charming Isn’t Coming: How Women Get Smart About Money”, and she tackles several other areas that affect how we see and feel about money and the way these reactions fuel or stall our success. No matter what your financial circumstances look like, Barbara’s no-nonsense, upfront, and direct approach will have you being honest with where you’re at and how to go next level in your financial journey to infinite success!

Barbara’s background is unique in that it includes work as an entrepreneur and top-level leader, journalism, and a Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology. Blended together, this mix of industries and experiences equips her to be the foremost expert on empowering women to live up to their own financial and personal potential. Doesn’t that hit the nail right on the head with what Emerging Women is all about?!
