Publisher's 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.

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!

Great information, dull narrator

The narrator was dull and monotone. She brought absolutely no life to the story's of some amazing women. The content is a 5, The delivery was a 1.

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.)

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.

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.

An essential guide for women serious about earning more

This isn't just about earning six figures. It’s about taking control of your earning potential, managing your money and building long term wealth. The stories and outline of the book are 10/10. I have pages and pages of notes. I have already secured higher salary at a new job which I was told was out of my reach. I 100% recommend this book

Loved it! Really opened my mind

I have realised how small I have been playing and sabotaging myself. It is programmed into us as kids often and we need to step up. Step into our own power
