Women have, in recent times, become very aggressive and they just want to be at the top of their game in almost every area of life.
Some studies have shown that women get paid less than men most times in the same types of jobs and this has been associated with their lack to negotiate for a higher salary and failing to get assertive with their bosses as well as other factors.

The Gist of the Book
This is a book that looks at women who earn from $100,000 to $7 million per year and also looks at the strategies they use in business to be able to earn that much.
On top of strategies, it also explains the virtues the women have that work hand in hand to make them deserving of the income range they get.
Some of the strategies that were found to be common across all of them include:
* A Profit Motive
* Financial Know-How
* Self awareness
The book also looks at women that earn below their potential and compares their strategies as well as their virtues, which show a huge difference between the two groups.
This will help you see what you are doing now and the things that you believe and which category they fall in to help you see if you are anywhere close to getting to six figure income anytime soon.
The author has explained each of the traits and methods very well that will help you understand exactly how to apply them in your life and see them work for you as well.
If you are an open minded person, which I am very sure you are, this book will be a true eye opener for you.
The author of this book is called Barbara Stanny. She says she is changing her name to Barbara Huson. I found out that she is a highly sought-after speaker, best selling author and a workshop facilitator.
She is also a leading authority on money and women hence helps folks be in control of their lives and money.
With this rich background in the financial world, you can definitely expect priceless gems of business success in the book.
A Peep at Some Content of the Book
In this section, I will be revealing some parts of the content I found pretty insightful, although I won’t give away all the meat of the content.
I want to give you the chance to get the rest from the book yourself and see the way the author discusses the topic in great depth and with a clear perspective.
The author has shared her personal experiences with various women. She points out that most women she met that broke the wage barrier showed great signs of toughening up and really avoided acting timid in the workplace.
She has explained how you should toughen and stop acting timid but be moderate to get ahead. (Or maybe to avoid get fired)
She also talks about the need to overcome the fear of making more money. Apparently, most women fear making huge amounts of money constantly which shouldn’t be the case.
Stanny also noticed that high earning women have dreams and hopes that push them to want to be successful and are not just driven by money.
Through interviewing these women, she discovered the rules they play by that have made them as successful as they are. Here are some of them:
* They go for what they want whether they are ready or not
* They do not personalize in business
* They do not allow excuses
* They go for opportunities fast
* Don’t pay attention to naysayers
There are more interesting and quite essential ones that I have left out that I couldn’t explain better than the book.
Through looking into under earners, she was able to gain understanding on money, women and mindset. And she boils everything down for you here in a way that you are going to find very educative and helpful in the long run.
What balances the book is the fact that the high earning women in the book are from different environments, with different upbringing and from all walks of life.
Stanny explains that for each of these women, money stands for something different but the one thing that is very similar with them is their vision for life which is based on values that include, security and independence, to name a few.
She describes the need to have a support system, seek self encouragement and exploit all your potential.
You are going to find this section quite intriguing.
You will get to learn how mentality affects everything in your life (even your future) and the need to be true to yourself.
This book carries really valuable information that can change your life forever if you take it seriously and work with the advice as it feels like talking to CEO’s and learning their secrets of trade, one on one.
Pro’s and Con’s Of The Book
* The book has practical advice on how to improve yourself as a person and as a businessperson
* It is really motivating
* It gives unique perspectives of how the successful view money and success
A good number of concepts discussed in the book are known by people
However, the perspectives from which the book approaches the known concepts are quite unique and will help you learn more.
Secrets of Six Figure Women Vs Nice Girls Don’t Get The Corner Office
Nice Girls Don’t Get the Corner Office is a book that looks at the behaviour women learn from a young age and how it can affect them as adults.
Honestly, its title is very catchy and you will learn skills that will help you learn tips you can incorporate in life and business.
I would say that Nice girls don’t get the corner office is somewhat complementary to the secrets of six figure women so reading them both would be a wise move.
