Summary

Quietly and steadily, the number of women making six figures or more is increasing and continues to rise at a rate faster than for men. From entrepreneurs to corporate executives, from white-collar professionals to freelancers and part-timers, women are forging careers with considerable financial success.

In Secrets of Six-Figure Women, Barbara Stanny, journalist, motivational speaker, and financial educator, identifies the seven key strategies of female high earners: Profit Motive, Audacity, Resilience, Encouragement, Self-Awareness, Non-Attachment, and Financial Know-How.

Based on extensive research and hundreds of interviews, including more than 150 women whose annual earnings range from $100,000 to $7 million, Stanny turns each of the six-figure traits into a specific strategy for upping earnings. By rigorously fine-tuning them, listeners can, step-by-step, climb the income ladder.

Good Listen

Any additional comments?

I am a six figure woman and I agree with what she talks about, both from the standpoint of a previous under earner and now a high earner.

Life Changing

What made the experience of listening to Secrets of Six-Figure Women the most enjoyable?

The book helped me look deep inside myself to discover the reasons why I am under earning. It helped to uncover experienceces as a child... that had a negative psychological impact on how I viewed money and what I thought I was capable of. Now that I know my debilitating issues, I can address them head on. Change starts from within, a mental shift is essential for any women to achieve her highest potential.

Very motivating

I learned a tremendous amount and enjoyed this book at the same time. The opposite of boring! Life changing! (I just have to get over my fears that I wasn’t aware of that are holding me back.)

Loved it

Although, now I think six-figures is a bit limiting! Can we have an updated edition titled, “Secrets of Seven-Figure Women”?? In all seriousness, this audiobook entered my life at an opportune time—when I decided to leave law firm life (where I was terribly undervalued and not appreciated at all) to branch off and start my own solo practice! I will be referencing this book for many years to come, I’m sure. Hopefully, one day I’ll have a legal practice run by powerful, compassionate, and ambitious women!

inspiring with one tiny hiccup

this book was recommended by a new friend who correctly sensed l was primed to receive the wisdom it shared. lots of great info, however, I wish this accomplished writer and/or her editors caught the Marianne Williamson quote they erroneously attributed to Nelson Mandela. that mistake did not significantly detract from the value I derived from the contents, it does lead me to question the accuracy of some of the facts presented.
