My books are not your traditional financial fare. Because traditional financial education never worked for me. NEVER! Each book I’ve written speaks to the heart as well as the head, addresses the spiritual along with the practical, deals with emotions in addition to mechanics.

Overcoming Underearning: A Five-Step Plan to a Richer Life
This book is filled with practical ideas, inspiration, and exercises designed to help underearners take control of their money, and in doing so, take charge of their lives.
Like all my books,this one is based on extensive research. After years of giving Overcoming Underearning seminars, I went back and interviewed everyone who had attended. I made two discoveries:
- Those who went on to higher earnings (and they were the whopping majority), all followed a five step plan.
- Their progress depended far more on shifting their mindset than learning practical mechanics.
Underearning has little to do with the amount of money you make. But it has everything to do with your attitude. An underearner is anyone who earns less than she needs or desires despite her efforts to do otherwise.
You’ll read compelling testimonials of women (and men) who increased their income, freed up time, enhanced relationships and even lost weight by Overcoming Underearning. You will learn that without a doubt, Overcoming Underearning is a lot more in your control than you realize. And It’s never too late to start.

Sacred Success: A Course in Financial Miracles
Publishers Weekly called Sacred Success: “Higher-minded than your average financial guide… smart, cogent book… a thoughtful, rich guide.”
Sacred Success is a groundbreaking paradigm shift, with an explicit message: There is a better way to achieve wealth and power: on your own terms, as a woman. Instead of pushing women to pursue financial success in the traditional fashion, Sacred Success seeks to redefine power from a feminine perspective. The ultimate goal of Sacred Success isn’t to “finish rich” (though that may be a desired outcome), but to go for Greatness, which requires you to become the powerful force you were born to be.
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. The results may be nothing short of miraculous.

Prince Charming Isn’t Coming: How Women Get Smart about Money
Often called a confidence-building classic, this book has inspired millions to take charge of their finances and increase their net worth.
Working as a journalist, I started interviewing financially savvy women to help me figure out how to get smart about money. I can tell you now, this definitely is not your typical financial book. I weave together my own dramatic story with interviews from financially savvy women.
The result—a heartfelt and informative read full of inspiring anecdotes, surprising realizations, emotional insights, eye-opening exercises, practical advice, and very clear steps to help you achieve financial mastery. “Penned in catchy, clear prose,” wrote one critic, “[this book] is guaranteed to give the greenest novice much of the monetary know-how she needs.”
This is probably the first financial book to deal with the Inner as well as the Outer Work of Wealth. As another reviewer explained: “this book is the next best thing to having one’s own financial coach.”
Secrets of Six-Figure Women: Surprising Strategies to Up Your Earnings and Change Your Life
This ground-breaking work is the only book devoted to BOTH earning and retaining wealth.
I interviewed over 150 six-figure women—entrepreneurs, corporate executives, white-collar professionals, freelancers and even part-timers (really!). I, being a classic underearner, wanted to learn how they did it and if I could too.
Though they came from widely different backgrounds and had vastly different work experiences, they were forging highly successful careers by following seven key strategies. I began following these strategies and became a six-figure earner before even finishing the book!
As one reviewer noted: “Stanny professes throughout that she desires to offer ‘insight, hope and guidance to any of you who aspire to earn more.’ With this surprisingly practical and ultimately inspirational guidebook, she delivers.”
Finding a Financial Advisor You Can Trust: A Guide for Investors (and those who want to be)
The one question I’m asked more often than any other, without doubt is this: How do I find a financial advisor I can trust?
I wrote this book to help you find the help you need and the people you can trust, easily and efficiently. You will find out how you can find a financial advisor you can trust in this short, simple but surprisingly comprehensive booklet.
Face it. Managing money can be overwhelming. Of all the women I’ve interviewed, the ones with the highest net-worth worked, at least at some point, with financial professionals.
Breaking Through: Getting Past the Stuck Points in Your Life
I asked more than 60 women how they get unstuck, and I'm sharing their insights with you!
Once, when I was feeling particularly stuck in my life, I was wondering if other successful women ever felt the same way (they all said yes!) and what they did when they were in this boat.
So I asked more than 60 women how they get unstuck. Or, when appropriate, what advice they gave their clients.
I found their stories profoundly enlightening, powerfully inspiring, and personally motivating. If your goals are set, but you find yourself stuck, Breaking Through will put new ideas, tips, exercises, meditations and processes in your toolbox.
