Book Description

Nov. 8 2007

When it comes to money, are you controlled by fear?
Do you underestimate your worth?
Are you ready to go to the next level, but can't seem to get there?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may be an underearner. Underearners are self-saboteurs who don't live up to their earnings potential, says Barbara Stanny, a financial educator, motivational speaker, and career counselor. Whether they make $10 an hour or six figures a year, they tend to live paycheck to paycheck, are often in debt, and have a high tolerance for low pay. Ironically, many work incredibly hard. The good news is that underearning is a self-imposed condition. By focusing on overcoming it, underearners will not only earn what they deserve, but live a richer life. With techniques and exercises that have helped thousands of people, Stanny teaches five essential steps to financial independence and brings a message of empowerment to all those who chronically undervalue themselves.

5.0 out of 5 stars Life Changing! March 19 2011
By Lynda
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Most sequels don't measure up to the first. This book however, just naturally follows Barbara Stanny's Secrets of Six Figure Women. The firstt gets you motivated to want more, to understand you deserve more. Then Overcoming Underearning gives you step by step instructions on how to get it! How to change your life. The phrase 'must read' is overworked and I don't normally use it, but this is a MUST READ!!! No long drawn out full of fluff while impatiently trying to get to the good stuff; it's ALL good stuff! Simple, easy to understand and follow and guaranteed to work! Awesome! This should be taught and made mandatory in all Highschools. DO THE WORK, get the RESULTS!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Journey To Earning More Money June 26 2014
By Stella Carrier TOP 100 REVIEWER
Yes, I said this before, but must say it again. Please know that I do not claim to have all the answers and do not dub myself a spiritual expert. I am only sharing books that I am looking into as part of my spiritual/personal expedition. I humbly confess that I did not want to publicly admit that I am working on my underearning because I am well aware that I am opening myself up even more to being publicly judged. However, my higher self/spirit/soul is gently nudging me to be more honest with myself and others.Additionally, I am thankful for my current overnight shift job and am well aware that I am lucky to be able to pay my rent and other basic needs (after this review, I hope to still have a job when I return to work tomorrow night). However, Overcoming Underearning by Barbara Stanny appealed to me because I have made good money before and am determined to at least get back to that level (at a minimum) within the next two to five years (at the latest). Additionally, my husband and I are working on not only paying back our student loans together, but also plan on paying back his mother and growing our savings. She is very patient, trusts us to eventually pay her back, and is supportive of our five year timeline to do so. She is the only family member on both sides of my husband’s and I families that we do owe money to and we both intend to keep it that way. However, I know that these things can only begin to happen once I address and do something (within the next six months) about the amount of money I earn. I also feel lucky to have received an e-mail about Barbara Stanny’s class from Daily Worth around the time I started seriously getting into this book. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book March 22 2010
By Anne L. Walton - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is filled with powerful, practical processes for supporting us in transforming not only our relationship with money but with ourselves. I've come to realize that my whole life I've struggled with low self esteem and that's now shifting dramatically. I highly recommend this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars She Walks Her Talk March 17 2011
By MicheleT - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I had the pleasure of taking Barbara's class on this subject and she is truly and authentic person who wants people to live their ultimate life. I use this book as a daily guide to get me on track to increase my earnings. I am self employed as a holistic health practitioner and creme artisan and had not realized that I had not truly valued the work I do. Barbara really teaches you how to empower yourself and move forward and upward in your life. I value her work so much I have bought copies and given it as gifts to my friends who are amazing women and have so much to offer. A must read for women! (and men).

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book for those that need to ask themselves "Why?" Oct. 12 2009
By CandysRaves (and Rants) - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I first heard of Barbara Stanny when I read Secrets of Six-Figure Women: Surprising Strategies to Up Your Earnings and Change Your Life earlier this year. It really changed how I look at things and even inspired me to start a video blogging site. So that book made a huge impact on me.

I decided to look at another book by the same author and found this one. It's not a bad book, but I think it would work better as a companion to her seminar. I still got a few things out of it, but a lot of it felt like rehashing of what I read previously.

Having said that, I think this is an important book for business owners and corporate types to read. So many (male and female alike) are not earning up to their full potential. The question you have to ask yourself is "Why?". The author does an excellent job of taking you through those steps to answering that question.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Book Ever! July 12 2012
By J. Edwards - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book has been a life changer for me. I have read so many books about becoming successful, sales and personal growth. This one gets to the core of why I was an Under Earner. Has great exercises to help me "re-train" my brain. To switch from those negative thoughts that kept me stuck and replacing them with positive thoughts and actions that are in alignment of what I want my life to be.
I have received more reward from this one book than all the others! Of course, all the other books got me to the place where I could hear what Barbara has to say. Love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars A stet-by-step guide to help you Sept. 2 2011
By Carolyn Dargevics - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was extremely impressed with this book. The explanations were clear and the questions and exercises were very helpful at uncovering why I didn't charge enough for my work. I now feel very comfortable charging a fair price for my services, and I even get payment up-front before doing any work. In fact, all my contracts are pay as I go, meaning I secure payment first and then do the work. That is a huge change for me.
