Few of us enjoy the prospect of having to negotiate on behalf of ourselves. We typically find it much easier if we’re negotiating a business matter or something on behalf of others. When the time comes for us to speak up for ourselves it can feel a whole lot more confronting.
Add to that the fact that money and salary amounts are often taboo subjects, it’s no wonder many of us sell ourselves short at the negotiating table. And it’s not surprising that a number of you have been in touch asking us to cover this topic as well. (Thanks for your emails ☺).
So here at Don’t Stop us Now! we thought, what better subject for our next How To episode?
We think you’ll get lots of great inspiration from this episode to help ensure you do yourself justice in future.
In this super practical episode you’ll learn:
