Stanny, the leading authority on women and money, is a motivational speaker, educator, former journalist, and career counselor. She is the author of two previous books, "Prince Charming Isn't Coming: How Women Get Smart About Money," and "Secrets of Six-Figure Women."
In "Overcoming Underearning," she shows readers how to: stop undervaluing themselves and underestimating their worth, control self-sabotage, quit living paycheck to paycheck, and become financially empowered. More than just a collection of tips to increase material wealth, the book acts as both a journal and a workbook, incorporating Stanny's belief that changing one's perspective about money takes both "Inner Work" and "Outer Work." The dozens of self-evaluation tools throughout the book give it a personalized edge.
The excerpt is entitled "10 Traits of Underearners," and is an eye-opening description of people who earn less than their potential despite their need or desire to do otherwise. According to Stanny, all underearners share one common trait: a high tolerance for low pay.
