Sacred Success®: A Course in Financial Miracles shows women there is a better way to achieve wealth and power: on your own terms—as a woman.

Barbara Stanny, the leading expert on women and money, has helped women take control of their finances for two decades—and she knows there is much more to success than how much you earn. In her work with powerful, successful women over the last 20 years, bestselling author and financial educator Stanny has found that most women’s problems with money have little to do with money itself, but rather with 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.

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.

You can be financially successful without sacrificing your soul or compromising your values. You can create wealth and exercise power by staying true to your authentic self and personal mission. Start now.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
"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.)

I recently decided that I was going to make the best of my remaining time of living in the Washington D.C. area by keeping the job I already currently have and work a second job (once again I intend to stay in the area for the rest of this year, but I now prefer to publicly keep quiet on when I know that I must relocate). However, I recently found out that one of the jobs I interviewed for in the D.C. area(as a second job opportunity) went to another candidate because they had greater flexibility in the days and hours that they would be available for. I’m at least grateful to have found out the reason. However, I’m also grateful that this book Sacred Success; A Course in Financial Miracles by Barbara Stanny is available to help me take a look at my beliefs around ways of creating greater income. The following are some of the pearls of information contained in this book (I’m guessing that the positive image on the book has to do with believing and knowing that the world is your oyster) Information on some of the clients that the author has worked with such as a non-profit director and an executive coach (pgs, 44 and 45). An interview the author recalled reading about in the Wall Street Journal (pg. 68). Her experience working with an advertising executive from a retreat (pg. 122) Pgs. 151-152-She shares a triangle diagram as it relates to money, affluence, and discussion of various levels involving money (i.e. the first level of establishing a six month emergency fund, the second level of conservative stocks and bonds etc.) Welcoming the Warrior and the author’s descriptions on what a warrior means(pg. 196). I admit that just the Warrior archetype alone may take me some time to ponder on because I’m still trying to at least retrieve and bring on the self-confident aspect of my eighth grade self who made class valedictorian and was voted most likely to succeed (it was out of a class of at least 389 other students and I actually believed in my own intellectual brilliance and the unlimited possibilities for my bright future).
