Meet Linda

Linda Husser is the Bodacious Lifestyle Coach for mature, modern women who are seeking to redefine themselves, and move into the next chapter of their lives excited, empowered and enlightened! As she guides her clients through a journey of soul-searching and self-discovery, she helps them breakthrough their midlife funk empowering them to regret-proof their life and daringly take control of their own destinies. 

With Linda, a woman moves from settled to awakened. She moves from pretentious existing to purposeful living. She moves from stuck to breaking out of her rut.

On the cusp of her fiftieth birthday, Linda had an awakening of her own that completely redefined her as a woman. She knew that she wasn’t living life to her fullest potential, but was unsure how to find the significance she was craving. Life was passing her by and she could no longer ignore the inner whisper, “Is this it for me?”

So even though so many women after 50 start downshifting in life, there was something in her that craved acceleration. Having made beauty her business as a stylist for twenty-three years, she made a bold move to own a salon for the first time. Opening those doors also opened her mind and spirit to her desire for more. What she realized was that, for years, she’d been choosing the most traveled road for her life, as opposed to blazing her undiscovered trail.

Living differently began with telling the truth—first to herself and then to everyone else. She became willing to find power in her vulnerability and transparency about every hidden crevice of her life, from time spent in foster care to questioning the beauty of her dark skin to contracting herpes at forty years old. The woman who had spent years running from it all cleansed herself through writing, reflecting and deep-self work. And with that came fresh possibility for her life. Fearlessness and Freedom came along for the ride!

Linda is destined to support other women through similar breakthroughs in their own lives. You don’t have to feel invisible!  You don’t have to put expiration dates on your dreams. You are not too old and it is not too late to live the life that you REALLY want. Not the life you have settled for. It’s time to live your life by design and not by default.

With a potent prescription of courage and clarity, Linda helps them stop living life through the rear view mirror and, in turn, to walk in their potential and purpose.  

If you are ready to own the power of your truth— 

If you are ready to get your mojo back!

If you are ready to unearth the badass that you buried so long ago— 

Then you’ve met your coach.  And her name is Linda Husser.

Fun facts About Me!

I was born in New York but have resided in Southern California on and off since 1978.

I have 5 siblings and me and my brother are the same age for ONE day!

I am a recovered statusquoholic who no longer believes the hype that society spews out on a daily basis when it comes to midlife and beyond. I don’t believe that dreams have expiration dates or that it’s ever too late to become who you were meant to be.

I am a social butterfly and ENJOY life!! You can catch me at a jazz festival, self-development seminar, museum, comedy club or any where with good vibes and good people! I am not shy and can be pretty goofy at times.. 

I am herpes positive and used to be so embarrassed and ashamed to admit it. But after doing deep self-work, I realized that my story is my glory. All of it. I even wrote the book Releasing the Shackles of Shame and freed myself even more!

I have no children, no pets and no negative people in my life. I have gotten rid of hangers on-ers and those who don’t know what reciprocity means.

I lived in England for two years as an Air Force active duty recruit. And I must say that their fish and chips are the bomb!

I an addicted to Audible and love listening to my books while I clean, work out or drive around town. It is making me a genius!

I’m a Gemini, but I don’t have two personalities. I’m not crazy either….

My hair isn’t real. They are making some BOMB wigs these days, right!?

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the gym! Did I say I LOVE the gym? Now with Covid, I have to do my own thing, but it’s working out well.

I have forgiven myself for bad choices and decisions and know that my vulnerability and transparency are my SUPERPOWERS!

After working with women for 30 years,  I realized I didn’t just do hair. I did HEARTS! It’s been said that hair stylists are bootleg therapists and I have to admit it’s true.

That’s why I became a certified life coach so that I could help Black women over 50 gain the confidence to reinvent themselves and regret-proof their lives.

I had a midlife mindset makeover at a time when  I was starting to feel invisible. Life was passing me by, I had lost my mojo and knew that I was operating WAY BELOW my level of genius!

I not only talk the talk, I walk the walk…..

Holla if you HEAR me!!
