Barbara Stanny is a woman on a mission. That mission is to motivate women to become financially empowered. Barbara grew up relying on her father (the 'R' of H&R Block), then her husband, to manage her money. But a devastating financial crisis became a personal wake-up call. Her journey to financial independence is inspiring. She began by interviewing financially savvy women from diverse backgrounds. She discovered a surprising series of insights that all these women shared—insights that enabled them to be 'smart' with their money. Those insights turned her life around, and became the core of her first book, Prince Charming Isn't Coming: How Women Get Smart About Money (Penguin). Barbara interviewed over 150 women who make $100,000 or more. Her goal: to find out how they did it, if others could too, and how to avoid the pitfalls along the way. From this new research came her book, Secrets of Six Figure Women: Surprising Strategies to Up Your Earnings and Change Your Life. Barbara not only uncovered the secrets that enabled these women to become so financially successful, but personally proved her theory, that others could do it too, was true. For the first time in her life, she became a six-figure woman...before she even finished writing the book. Barbara's background in business, her years as a journalist, her Master's Degree in psychology, her extensive research, and her personal experience with money give her a unique perspective and makes her the foremost expert on women's financial issues. She is an accomplished motivational speaker, author, and former career consultant who empowers women (and men) to live up to their financial and personal potential. Barbara Stanny has been featured on Good Morning America, The View, Extra, The O'Reilly Report, and many times on CNN, MSNBC, CNBC, Fox News, PBS, and NPR, as well as the New York Times, and USA Today. It is an honor and a privilege to welcome this amazing woman who drastically helped me change my life.
