So I found the role I wanted and set about making myself known to the key people in the organization, and eventually got myself in front of the hiring manager for an interview.
I’m sure you understand this is harder than it sounds – I had to get through all the barriers organizations put up to stop you getting to the right person, work out who the key players were and then get directly to them. It was risky and took some work, but hey, I had nothing to lose!
Not only did I get the job which involved managing people, projects and budgets in multiple countries, but I used some non-verbal communication skills (which I can help you master) to negotiate a higher rate of pay, flexibility to pick up my kids from child care AND an extra month of vacation each year! True story!
That's when I found my purpose in life. I realized that so many women continue to suffer exactly like I had. And I set about packaging up everything I had learned, and followed my dream of helping others and making a real difference in the lives of women all over the world.
So far I’ve helped 10's of thousands of women through my world- leading, 7-figure salary and career coaching business, who are where I was back then, to ask for (and get!) the salary and conditions they deserve in a career they love, or to start successful and rewarding businesses for themselves.
