Summary:
"Do you yearn for more, but can't quite put your finger on what that is? Do you strive for higher income, but at the same time sense there's more to success than making lots of money? Do you long to pursue your purpose in a meaningful and rewarding way? Even though you've already achieved a great deal, do you deeply desire, definitely deserve, and fully expect to reap even greater financial rewards--and want to ensure you handle those financial rewards knowledgeably and responsibly? Sacred Success is a groundbreaking paradigm shift that tells women, There is a better way to achieve wealth and power: on your own terms. In her work with countless powerful, successful women over the last twenty years, bestselling author and financial educator Barbara Stanny found that most women's problems with money have little to do with money itself, but rather 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. You can be financially successful without sacrificing your soul or compromising your values. You can have more money, not as an end itself, but as a tool for making a difference and helping others. You can create wealth and exercise power by staying true to your feminine traits, authentic truths, and personal mission. The ultimate goal of Sacred Success isn't to "finish rich" (though that may be a desired outcome), but to achieve Greatness, which requires you to become the powerful force you were born to be. 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. The results may be nothing short of miraculous"--

Publisher's Weekly Review

"I truly believe money is God made visible." The author of Prince Charming Isn't Coming places a high value on money and financial success, as well she should. Born into money as the daughter of Richard Bloch, co-founder of H&R Block, Stanny only grasped her own financial ignorance when, early in her marriage, she realized her husband was a gambling addict. Determined to take charge of her life and help other women do the same, she started a career counseling firm, The Career Management Center. But her life truly changed after she experienced a vision while attending a friend's church and subsequently discovered the popular Christian self-help text A Course in Miracles. Stanny's thoughtful, rich guide to achieving prosperity and peace draws heavily on that earlier book, but with the decided twist of promoting power and agency to female readers. Women are up against a lot, as Stanny points out. In her words, truly powerful women are those who have attained "sacred success," which allows them to help others and create a meaningful life. Higher-minded than your average financial guide, this smart, cogent book emphasizes doing God's work while also attaining power, integrity, and personal accountability. The only question is whether or not it will reach a broader audience than just existing Course in Miracles devotees. (Oct.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
