Hello Soul Friend,
It’s been awhile….6 weeks to be exact. I haven’t forgot about you, I just felt like I didn’t have anything worth saying. I respect your inbox too much to fill it up with crap, so I stayed silent.
The truth is, I’ve been really reflecting on my next steps.
I’ve been having so much fun with you, but I’m not really sure if any of this has helped you at all.
That’s my main goal - to help.
Mindfulness is such a personal journey, I’ve questioned whether I’m able to go deep enough to support you, but not too deep that I lose you. To be honest, I feel like I’ve reached the point where I’ve run out of things to say. It starts to become a lot of recycled stuff, which is all part of practicing, but feels like I’m a broken record.
Or maybe these are just the excuses I tell myself so I don’t feel bad for the new direction I want to take this.
I am feeling this pull to support women in getting a raise.
I’ve been learning that negotiating for more money isn’t something most women feel comfortable doing. To be honest, I was in my late 20’s before I even realized this was something people did. I just accepted whatever number was given to me.
I know I’m not alone in this.
I also know that learning to negotiating is something we can do to close the gender pay gap.
There are many factors to that contribute to the gap, and while I know that learning to negotiating make it disappear, it will help.
If you know me, you know that this is something I feel so strongly about.
If you know me, you might have heard one of my rants of how I don’t want my nieces (and now daughter) to enter the workforce, having to fight for their money.
This is something I started researching over 3 years ago. Since then, my oldest niece has already entered the workforce. Is she being paid fairly? I hope so. I know that she’s in a field that is predominately women, and predominately on the lower end of the pay scale.
The time will fly by, and before I know it, my 8 year old niece will be entering the workforce. My hope is by then, I’ve done my part to arm her the best I can with tools and strategies to “beat the system” and get paid on point.
So that’s where we’re at, my friend. I am shifting to mindful negotiating strategies for women in the workplace. There’s a certain way women need to negotiate. As unfair as it is, the strategies that work for our brothers will not work for us.
