4. Secrets of Six- Figures Women Written By Barbara Stanny
This is an amazing book for women. The author has interviewed many successful businesswomen, from all walks of life. She has described the best qualities for them here. Below are the key take away from Barbara:
The first point is that women, who talked to the author, said that they worked on their personality. They went on to say, they improved decision-making skills, they went to the best business schools, and they read the best books for starting a business. In a nutshell, it was becoming educated. It helped them to think out of the box and chase their dreams.
Hard work pays off:
The author discovered that lots of women were happy to become workaholics. They preferred to stay motivated and focus to achieve success. They did what they liked. It drives to them achieve more, in their lives.
They often worked to get more and leave their couch behind. Fear didn’t stop them. They took it as an opportunity to reach the next level. Some of them even failed at the beginning, but they didn’t give up on their aspirations.
Some of the ladies didn’t get any praise, pat on the back from their parents. Instead, they looked in the community for the support they need. They got experts to look up to, whenever they didn’t know to, tackle a particular situation. They gathered friends around them, to analyze any difficult task.
The advent of technology has made it easier, for anyone to get access to reading; it can be brought about a positive impact on their lives. The best thing which I liked about the Kindle, was that I can take it with me anywhere like e.g. on a train, in the office or even I can enjoy new titles under the tree.
