Why are women still underpaid? Does self-esteem and earning six-figures go hand-in-hand? Do women place financial limits on themselves? With insight and practical real-world guidance Barbara Stanny helps us discover our inner six-figure woman. Are you ready to find the answers?
My copy of Secrets of Six-Figure Women is dog-eared, underlined, written in the margins and covered with sticky notes. Iíve used it in the question and answer portion of my seminars and have recommended it as a group read for leaders. Let me ask you: Are you earning and saving for the lifestyle you want to be consistently living and enjoying?
In her book Barbara Stanny provides us with these facts:
1. Itís estimated that one out of every three workers is an underearner, most of them women.
2. Hefty incomes donít guarantee a happy life, or even peace of mind.
3. No matter how difficult your circumstances or how discouraged you feel, climbing the salary scale is entirely within your grasp.
4. Underearning is not to be confused with voluntary simplicity, a conscious choice to live with less.
I believe one of the most important exercises in this book is the value-clarification exercise. Iíve learned from my own personal experiences that I will not succeed at anything that goes against my true core values. Your values fuel your motivation to succeed and earn. Itís well worth taking the time to work and study the results of this activity.
Do you think that living the lifestyle of your choice, making the money you deserve and enjoying life is based on something deeper than just making money? Isnít it really about feeling worthy and deserving of making six figures? Isnít it about making money while nurturing healthy self-esteem?
Earning six-figures has nothing to do with age, education or luck. It does have everything to do with your desire to live a healthy, happy and financially satisfying life. Are you ready to earn your six-figure (and even seven-figure) income? Are you ready to stop underearning and to begin living up to your full earning potential?
I highly recommend Secrets of Six-Figure Women. Iíve personally seen it become a life changing eye opener for women who are tired of surviving and are ready to begin thriving in their financial life.
Here is what we are going to do on the Abundance and Wealth forum. For twelve weeks beginning on Saturday, November 1, 2008 Iíll pose a discussion question on the Abundance and Wealth forum. Each question will reinforce the important points of the book. Weíll be focusing on and reinforcing the traits of six-figure women. Letís plan on discussing the book and learning from one another. Are you ready to join in?
