How it works
If you want to make more money you have to be comfortable talking about a topic that makes most people squirm: money. This kit will step-by-step you forward so you:
know what you should be making
can more comfortably talk about your strengths and weaknesses
nail a job interview using a great resume, Linkedin page and great body language
know how to navigate uncomfortable HR questions like “What are your salary expectations”
follow up on an interview and set yourself apart from other candidates
You won’t believe the immediate difference this kit will make to your interviewing and salary negotiating skills. A $10,000 difference in salary at your first job, can mean a difference of between $500,000 and a $1M over the course of your whole life.

RESEARCH IS EVERYTHING
Knowing what you should be making isn’t magic. Your boss, the HR department or any company is most likely not going to tell you the right number either. They are in business to make money, and part of that means they want to get their employees at the best rates!
We’ll tell you where you can research salaries and exactly how to ask others what they make. HINT... it’s not: “So, what do you make a year?”
Part of being a great candidate is knowing yourself and what you bring to the table. But if you’ve never had a full-time job, or you’re interviewing in the big leagues for the first time that can be challenging.
We’ve made learning how to talk about yourself, your strengths and even your weaknesses easy with our easy to fill in Smartsheets*.

From keeping your Linkedin profile and resume up to date to cleaning up your social media feeds (or taking them private) —we’ll help you next-level your income.
UNCOMFORTABLE $ QUESTIONS
We don’t leave you high-and-dry when it comes to the tough questions. We talk you through different ways you can answer all these questions:
What are your salary expectations?
Can you give me a range?
Why do you think you deserve more money?
And after you’ve gotten an offer we’ll walk you through exactly how you can sound encouraging but also ask for a number that’s more in line with your research!
Almost no one likes talking about money. Its uncomfortable, but when you’ve done your research, gotten your ducks in a row, and know how to present yourself… it’s a lot easier. We’re excited for you and want to hear how it goes!
Do you guarantee I'll more money if I buy this kit?
We want you to succeed and we've put our heart and soul into these guides. That said no one can guarantee you anything.

Does it really matter if I negotiate my this job? Can't I make up the money later in life?
Because a lot of women and some men don't negotiate hard enough early in their careers, the salary difference compounds over time. So instead of making $55k at your first job, you make $35. So you move to $55k for your second job instead of moving to $70k or $80k. Over the course of your life you could be missing out on $500,000 to $1M.
I feel rude if I don't thank the company for the job offer. Why is thanking them a bad idea?
When you thank the company, you're suggesting you're happy with their offer and it's possible you are not. It's best to simply respond to their offer by saying "Your offer is a solid place for us to kick things off." This type of response is encouraging, but also give you room to ask them to improve their offer.
Your "2019 Guide To Making More Money" talks about body language and follow-up notes. That stuff is totally old-school. Do you really think it matters?
When you are competing against others for a position, it never heards to dot your i's and cross your t's. And one way to stand out positively is always going to be GREAT MANNERS. So by all means come across as warm and poised, and take the time to send thank you follow-ups.
I can't talk about money. No matter how hard I try. It just makes me uncomfortable.
I hear you. It's really hard. I would suggest you start by taking baby steps. Start by talking to friends and family about what you paid for things. Then negotiate with vendors, and practise negotiating for things you don't really care about. It also helps to pretend you're negotiating for a friend. Many of us are fabulous negotiators for others!
Even this kind of practise can be great helping you get more comfortable. Remember, money is an abstract concept and your quality of life is really what you're negotiating for.
