1. What does Women's History Month mean to you?
Women's History month is the world's reminder that women have been and continue to be vital to the building and sustaining of a society that sometimes overlooks us. Our contributions, our voices, and our presence run deep and for that we should be celebrated. This is also one of the critical points in time where women must build relationships, collaborate, and celebrate one another.
2. How are you using your gifts to propel women forward?
As an attorney, I became the voice for women as a negotiation strategist. I teach women how to make demands for themselves. Women are natural conversationalists, but we don't realize the power in our conversation. Every client, contact, and contract begins there. It is my mission to give every woman the confidence and practical tools to be her own advocate in creating the life she wants. Introverts can do it too! We all have a message and gift to share.
3. What advice would you share with readers who are hesitant to pursue their passions?
Don't give anyone or anything the power to set the standard for your life. We were not placed here to live in fear, mediocrity or darkness. If you're reading this magazine, the greatness inside of you has already been stirred up, now take the steps to set it free. Write down your major scary goal and take tiny steps towards completing that goal everyday. Find the experts specializing in your weak areas.
4. How can readers support your efforts in 2019?
Join my email list. 2019 is jam packed with webinars, book releases, live events, product launches and more. If you're on the mailing list, you wont miss anything. Readers interested in working with me directly can do so by enrolling in my online course or Mastermind group. The online course is a 10 week course teaching my nine step system to becoming a master negotiator. Enrollees will discover their personal negotiation styles, ways to read the other side and persuasion techniques for combating the word "No". I offer group coaching sessions and participants have the added bonus of joining my private community of other brilliant women who serve as accountability partners, cheerleaders and sounding boards.
My mastermind is next level negotiation which takes a deep dive into negotiation tactics through individual and group strategy sessions. It is designed for the woman who is comfortable negotiating but she's hit a plateau in her life. She's ready to secure that big speaking engagement, book deal or million dollar contract but she needs assistance. Both programs are fun but we get stuff done! If you show up and do the work you can reach the next level. Enrollment for the online course open up again this summer. Watch for that! (The Mastermind process is by application)
5. What is your favorite inspirational quote?
" Some days I am more wolf than woman...I am still learning to be unapologetic for my wolf"
Don't shrink the wild parts of yourself! Your wild passion. Your raw gifts and talent! The wolf is your confidence. Sometimes it's quiet, other days it's loud...at ALL times it's still a wolf. Yes you can be both wolf and woman. Follow your wild!
