901: Georgia Lee Hussey, Founder of Modernist Financial
"The dominant culture is telling us a lot of things about what we’re supposed to do with our money and our resources. I like a broader definition of money as just, - what are our resources?"
Our guest today is Georgia Lee Hussey, Founder and CEO of Modernist Financial, which is on a mission to build a world where progressive people feel permission to enjoy today, while also investing in our common future.
Georgia is a queer female founder who started her career as a writer and artist and then went on to spend a decade working in finance as a CFP. She was baffled by the industry’s lack of transparency and culture of conformity, which inspired her to launch a different kind of firm – one that truly centers individuality and self-efficacy.
Modernist Financial has been named one of the largest LGBTQ+ owned businesses in Oregon and one of Portland's largest wealth management firms.
