Learn how to get paid what you're worth.
It makes your palms sweat, your heart race and your brain freeze. What if your boss doesn't think you're worth it? What if it damages your working relationship? How do you even ask in the first place? We've got you.
When I researched the pay scale for my role within the company I work for (after working for them for more than 20 years), I found out I was being paid nearly $100,000 a year less than I could have been, simply because I had never asked for a raise! With Jill's help, I negotiated the raise I wanted and got myself on track for future increases.
A huge PayScale survey found that only a little over a third of employees had ever asked for more money in their current role. But, if they did ask, 70% got a pay raise.
It's clear that not asking can leave a huge amount of money on the table.
But, a heap of people still don't ask. And we know why.
People don't ask because they don't know where to start.
It's uncomfortable talking about money, you worry it might affect your relationship with the boss and if you approach it wrong, it could not only mean no extra money but may well end up having a detrimental effect on their job.
