I was 23 years old and making great money as the youngest lead designer for a prominent home builder in Las Vegas. I was living the dream, or so I thought. One day I walked into my boss’ office and said those two powerful words, “I quit”. Within a year’s time, I started my own design firm, Alison Victoria Interiors, I’ve never looked back and I’ve never been happier!
On my lunch break earlier that day, I stopped by Barnes & Noble and picked up a book that I ended up reading cover to cover. I had no idea that in just a matter of hours, my life was about to change.
The book is Secrets of Six-Figure Women by Barbara Stanny. I loan it to every woman I know and love, and even after eight years, I can’t stop talking about it.
My love for books (real books, not kindles) is an everlasting one. Books guide you, teach you and transform you in ways you never thought possible. This is my gift to any woman out there who is too afraid to make “the move”, too scared of the “unknown” and too terrified of “letting go of the ledge.”
“Never underestimate the power of your thoughts to create your reality. The mind is the most powerful tool you have for transforming your relationship to money and your ability to earn it. As Buddha observed, “All that we are arises from our thoughts.” – Barbara Stanny
