Publisher Comments:

According to the Department of Labor, the average woman in 1998 was bringing home less than $25,000 a year. For every dollar that a man makes, a woman makes between 50 and 75 cents, and that is hardly news.

But what you may not know is that, quietly and steadily, the number of women making six figures or more is rapidly increasing. Currently, over fifteen million women make $100,000 or more, and the number continues to rise at a rate faster then for men. And these women come from every industry - psychologists, dot com founders, consultants, freelance writers, and even part-timers.

What makes these particular women able to do so well in the workplace? Fueled by curiosity, Barbara Stanny, author of Price Charming Isn't Coming: How Women Get Smart About Money (Viking Penguin), set out to research this phenomenon. What she discovered was that, though the high-earning women she interviewed came from different backgrounds and had had greatly different work experiences, they all had certain characteristics in common.

Secrets of Six Figure Woman: Surprising Strategies of the Successful High Earners will be a ground breaking book for high earners who want to ensure their wealth, enhance their success, and learn from others who are in the same boat. It will also offer inspiration, guidance, and motivation to those who aspire to make more.

Synopsis:

This inspiring look at how women can increase their earnings while achieving their potential offers surprising strategies women can use to increase their earnings and personal empowerment.

I couldn't put this book down! It took about a month to actually read since I applied the principles to my life as I was reading. I look forward to reading her book on under earning as I have already read Prince Charming Isn't Coming. Both of these books have changed my life because they changed my thinking. I recommend this book to anyone that is "stuck" and has many unanswered questions. This book will give the accountability and boost you'll need to move into greater dimensions of life.
