Praise for Overcoming Underearning®
As a Certified Financial Planner practitioner, I am always looking for good books to recommend to clients and to people who come to my seminars on how to get their assets in gear. "Overcoming Underearning" is one that will be high on my recommended list.
I have been in practice for more than 20 years and have learned that 80% of how people handle money is emotional and only about 20% is rational or well thought out. Stanny's book has a goldmine of ideas on how to uncover the emotional issues that are holding you back and gradually change your ratio so more of your decisions can be rational and less emotional.
Throughout the book she gives writing exercises with structured questions to help the reader get to the root of their underearning dynamics. I can't tell you how impressed I am with her lists and with her questions. There is no doubt that she has "been there, done that" and that she is armed with powerful insights from the many seminar clients she has worked with. She knows her stuff!
The book is exceptionally well written and well edited. It flows well, is easy to read, and very compelling. The power of the book is in the journaling exercises and the follow up ideas she provides. If you want to earn more, do these exercises and I think it will blow you away.
I was impressed that even though I'm already a high earner and very good with my own money that I picked up quite a few great ideas that will benefit me personally. Kudos, Ms. Stanny!
By delving into your long-held attitudes about money, "Overcoming Underearning" can help you develop a new outlook about how you handle your finances and how you value your time and effort.
This book is based on the actual seminars by Barbara Stanny, and contains extensive worksheets and exercises to help you get to your core beliefs about money and what it means to you. By taking the time to work through the exercises, the insights gained will stick in your brain and prod you to think about what you want from your life. From there, you can begin to create an action plan to help you start achieving the earning power that you deserve.
Yes, going through this book requires effort on your part, but by putting into practice what you learn, I truly believe that you can begin to achieve a financial stability that you haven't known before. While the title focuses on increasing what you earn, this book has the potential to transform your life in all areas. It's a must read if you really want to get ahead in life.
