Along with this, I've been reading Secrets of Six-Figure Women, also by Barbara Stanny, Mindset by Carol Dweck, and a book called Unleash Your Inner Money Babe by Kathrin Zenkina.
When I read the title, I asked myself if I too might be an underearner as my whole adult career has been spent in the public sector with its designated pay bands assigned to each employee classification. I suspected I was so I felt I could probably benefit from the author’s five step plan to a richer life. While the author writes primarily to benefit women, I suspected that anyone who read the book could benefit from it, so long as they took the actions suggested within it.
Based on what she was learning from her research of six figure women, the author began leading Overcoming Underearning workshops. This book grew out of those initial workshops. As a result, this book is full of exercises, quizzes and opportunities for self-discovery and practice. If you do these, I believe this book can have a real impact on your life.
This is an excellent, well written, engaging book. Because of the interactive nature of the book, I would recommend you buy the paper, as opposed to, the electronic version, so you can take full advantage of the interactivity offered.
I particularly liked the author’s focus on the need to address the mindset or mental aspects associated with living a “richer” life. As the author noted, her own beliefs were holding her back.
Read this book. Do the exercises. Don’t let your beliefs hold you back from living the good life.
The introduction takes account of Barbara Stanny’s story as an underearner, all her struggles, until she figured out the five-step plan to overcome it.
She states how anyone can earn a six-figure income, and still be an underearner; therefore, financial independence is the focus.
You can ckeck a list of symptoms of being an underearner with Underearners Anonymous. However, Barbara Stanny believes underearning is a symptom per se, and it is a consecuence of low self-esteem, or lack of self-worth.
It is uncomfortable to bring all that’s not working to the surface, and heal. Furthermore, change, and new opportunities are waiting for us to transform our mindset, and clean the clutter.
This book is useful if you are thinking “it is time to make more money.”, but you don’t know where to start. Through series of exercises, visualizations, and journaling, Barbara Stanny examines all the barriers that kept the underearning. It’s not a magic pill as it requires outer and inner work.
I was so impressed by the layout and format and ideology, that I sent a copy to each of my children. It's an opportunity to have them see what they may have inherited from their parents that needs to be updated as well as to confirm their value mindset in this world and to be well paid for it.
