Secret to Financial Success? Focus on your Values First

Wine_and_corkscrew When Barbara Stanny interviewed 150 high earning women for her book "Secrets of Six Figure Women" she found a common thread between them that was their main driver. She writes "Each one had a vision for her life based on cherished values like recognition, security, challenge or independence. These intangible goals, more than hard cash, provided the fuel for their financial success. Money became the by-product of their value-based ambition and, simultaneously, gave them more opportunities to live out their authentic values….Almost every woman I interviewed expressed a genuine longing to live life on her own terms, and that desire – be it for autonomy or achievements, for happiness or fame – imbued her with a well spring of raw energy that kept pushing her higher and higher. Otherwise, as several found out, striving solely for money is like a steady diet of pizza or pastry. After a while, you are left craving for more".  As someone who works one to one with successful women, I couldn't agree more. What is your core value and how it is showing up in your career?
