It showed me that six figure women face the same issues that we all do: Fear, doubting your own worth and your abilities, etc.
Every page I read got me more inspired and motivated to keep going. I'm an Entrepreneur, and while reading the book, I started implementing ideas I had been too scared to try. And they are working! This book gave me the strenght, courage and the kick on my ass I needed to unleash my potential.
I definitely think to change we've got to learn from those who are doing, so although as an artist, I couldn't completely relate or want to be the women she wrote about. I do believe that this and her other book helped me on a subconscious level.
Along with this, I've been reading Overcoming Under Earning, also by Barbara Stanny, Mindset by Carol Dweck, and a book called Unleash Your Inner Money Babe by Kathrin Zenkina.
This book is about women who earn from $100,000 to $7 million per year. Their combined average income is an impressive $500,000. (See p. 16.) The book also examines perpetual underearners: "anyone who earns below her potential." (See p. 46 for more context about who is and isn't an underearner.)
It was striking to me that the main difference between the high earners and the underearners was mostly attitude. After all, many undearners work as hard or are as gifted in their profession as the high earners.
Some of the examples were of women who became six-figure earners late in life. These skills can be learned at any career stage.
Next I want to read the author's more recent work, Overcoming Underearning, which I think may provide the step-by-step guidance some people were looking for in this Secrets book. http://www.amazon.com/Overcoming-Underearning-Five-Step-Plan-Richer/dp/006081862X/ref=reg_hu-rd_dp_img#_
