This book is filled with powerful, practical processes for supporting us in transforming not only our relationship with money but with ourselves. I've come to realize that my whole life I've struggled with low self esteem and that's now shifting dramatically. I highly recommend this book!

I first heard of Barbara Stanny when I read Secrets of Six-Figure Women: Surprising Strategies to Up Your Earnings and Change Your Life earlier this year. It really changed how I look at things and even inspired me to start a video blogging site. So that book made a huge impact on me.

I decided to look at another book by the same author and found this one. It's not a bad book, but I think it would work better as a companion to her seminar. I still got a few things out of it, but a lot of it felt like rehashing of what I read previously.

Having said that, I think this is an important book for business owners and corporate types to read. So many (male and female alike) are not earning up to their full potential. The question you have to ask yourself is "Why?". The author does an excellent job of taking you through those steps to answering that question.

This book has been a life changer for me. I have read so many books about becoming successful, sales and personal growth. This one gets to the core of why I was an Under Earner. Has great exercises to help me "re-train" my brain. To switch from those negative thoughts that kept me stuck and replacing them with positive thoughts and actions that are in alignment of what I want my life to be.
I have received more reward from this one book than all the others! Of course, all the other books got me to the place where I could hear what Barbara has to say. Love it!

I had the pleasure of taking Barbara's class on this subject and she is truly and authentic person who wants people to live their ultimate life. I use this book as a daily guide to get me on track to increase my earnings. I am self employed as a holistic health practitioner and creme artisan and had not realized that I had not truly valued the work I do. Barbara really teaches you how to empower yourself and move forward and upward in your life. I value her work so much I have bought copies and given it as gifts to my friends who are amazing women and have so much to offer. A must read for women! (and men).

Overcoming Underearning was referred to me for a women's discussion group. It would've been easy to breeze through the book and put it down, life unchanged. Talking it over revealed glaring personal thought habits. Doing the questions with accountability was most effective. It's work but worth it. I did make life changes. I re-designed my life to a more compatible focus. This took time and more training. Baby steps begun several years ago have given me a new direction.

I was extremely impressed with this book. The explanations were clear and the questions and exercises were very helpful at uncovering why I didn't charge enough for my work. I now feel very comfortable charging a fair price for my services, and I even get payment up-front before doing any work. In fact, all my contracts are pay as I go, meaning I secure payment first and then do the work. That is a huge change for me.

Ever since discovering Barbara Stanny's work, I have become a huge fan. Barbara is so amazing and really knows what she is talking about. I had huge transformations around my money, my life since working with her. She is simply pure MAGIC!

Hello, my name is Nikki and I was an underearner my entire life until I read “Overcoming Underearning.”

This is the first self-improvement book I’ve read that’s making noticeable changes in my life. The reason it’s effective is because it forces the committed reader to examine her beliefs and attitudes about money with exercises throughout each chapter. (I wrote all over my book, I recommend purchasing it in paperback rather than an electronic copy.)

All of my adult life I have dreamed not so much of money, but Financial Independence, yet that’s all it’s been: A Dream. Wishful thinking missing a Plan of Action, the courage to execute it, and the confidence to value myself and my creative talent.

For the past five years I’ve earned below $12k a year doing jobs that felt “comfortable” and “low key” believing I was better off sticking to work that didn’t challenge or drain my creative energy. I kept telling myself that my husband was the only one who could make “real money” with his IT experience.

I blew through my entire savings just to keep up with practical expenses. My sense of self-worth suffered. I turned a blind eye to my bank account and tuned out my husband whenever he tried to talk about our finances because it was too depressing to face.

Two years ago I decided to pursue my lifelong dream of a career in fiction writing by publishing my first young adult fantasy novel. I was so grateful for the warm response I received from readers and book bloggers that I constantly did giveaways to express my gratitude. I released new titles at a special 99 cent price to “reward” my faithful fans before upping it to the intended price a couple weeks later (after the buzz had died down, along with sales).
