Webinar Overview

Thinking More Productively About Money!

Money, money, money! You want more of it but, do you know how to get it. Have you thought about how much money you want to earn? Do you know how to develop a strong negotiating mindset? If you want to take ownership of your career, you are going to have to learn how to talk about money! Jennifer is going to show you how talking about money can make you more of it.

The three strategies Jennifer will share with you include:

1) Why talking openly about money makes the workplace better — and can help you in your career.

2) This isn’t school — you don’t get rewarded for personal excellence alone. Increase your income (through a job or a side hustle) by providing what qualified buyers are actively looking for.

3) Why the best negotiating strategy is being in demand — and being genuinely willing to walk away.
