No matter what I do, I never seem to earn as much money as my colleagues who have the same education and the same type of work experience that I do. I would think it was because of sexism except some of my friends are female and they out earn me by a LOT of money per year. I thought if I took a job with a good company and I worked hard, I would get promoted. That’s exactly what happened, except my boss claimed that this is not a good time for raises and now I am doing more work for NO MORE MONEY!! Are there some sort of money secrets that everyone else knows that I don’t?
Seriously Frustrated About Money
Dear Seriously Frustrated,
I don’t know what is going on for you with money but I have a book recommendation for you. Please buy or borrow, “Secrets of Six-Figure Women” by Barbara Stanny. I think you will enjoy reading about 150 high earning women and the similarities between them. You can compare your own approach to money and figure out what you need to change. Ms. Stanny’s website also features resources that promise to “revolutionize women’s relationship to money.” Check it out and I hope that it helps you.
