Barbara Stanny, the leading expert on women and money, has helped women take control of their finances for two decades—and she knows there is much more to success than how much you earn. In her work with powerful, successful women over the last 20 years, bestselling author and financial educator Stanny has found that most women’s problems with money have little to do with money itself, but rather with their fear of, or ambivalence toward, power. Instead of pushing women to pursue financial success in the traditional fashion, Sacred Success seeks to redefine power from a feminine perspective.
More than a financial guide, Sacred Success is a primer on power for women—a tutorial for taking charge of your life by taking charge of your finances, and not only growing your money but creating a deeper, richer, and more meaningful life. Best described as “A Course in Miracles meets the Wall Street Journal,” Sacred Success gives you a proven process that uniquely blends the practical, psychological, and spiritual work of wealth.
You can be financially successful without sacrificing your soul or compromising your values. You can create wealth and exercise power by staying true to your authentic self and personal mission.
Most book that I have read on how women can become successful have focused on how to make money, how to climb to the top of the corporate ladder, and how to be a leader in your field. This is how these books define success. In this book author Barbara Stanny paints quite a different picture of success and then give us the tools to help us achieve the success we are looking for in our individual lives. She reminds us that success is not all about money and power for power’s sake. It is about knowing what is important to us and giving our all to achieve it and then paying it forward to inspire others. This book is full of sage advice on personal growth and how to avoid pit falls along your journey as you stay true to yourself and become the woman you desire to be.
