I didn’t have time to read it when I first got it – life got in the way.
I am definitely an underearner though – so I have a lot to learn and gain from this book. My plan is to read and review a section of the book about once a week.
More about Barbara Stanny – her web site is here: BarbaraStanny.com and she has a blog also. Other books she has written are “Prince Charming Isn’t Coming: How Women Get Smart About Money” and “Secrets of Six Figure Women: Surprising Strategies to Up Your Earnings and Change Your Life”.
In the introduction to the book Barbara says that when she was growing up she didn’t really learn about managing money. After a divorce and other financial problems she was left with a lot of debt and 3 daughters to raise. She went to a financial counselor who told her “You’re an underearner”. Eventually she figured out how to make more money. This book teaches women how to become financially independent and is also part workbook and part journal.
Barbara says in one place: “… I worked long and hard … I could not seem to make much money“. That describes me very well! I know I don’t make what I should – and I hope to learn something from this book that will help me too!
