What's holding you back from reaching financial success?
I learned a little history about women and money while reading Barbara Stanny's book, Secret's of Six-Figure Women.
Here are a few excerpts from Stanny's book:
Psychotherapist Olivia Mellan, coauthor of Money Shy to Money Sure says, "this fear of power is perfectly understandable. It's embedded in collective unconscious. Powerful women were burned at the stakes"
Did you know the word money is derived from the Latin feminine noun moneta?
"Moneta was the name of Juno, queen mother of heaven. Making money is part of our heritage, a legacy it's time to embrace."
