Excerpt: Are You An Underearner?

I have permission from publisher Collins to distribute an excerpt from the book, "Overcoming Underearning," in which financial guru Barbara Stanny helps readers change their relationship with money and realize that underearning is often self-inflicted. Stanny's expertise lies in helping women gain financial independence, but the lessons learned in "Overcoming Underearning" apply to both genders.

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.
