Get Recognized and Rewarded

Let's admit it: putting your head down and working hard isn't enough to get recognized at work. You also need to advocate for yourself.

I'll help you embrace your strengths, get comfortable with "promoting" yourself, and identify opportunities where you can raise your hand to become a leader at work. The goal? Make sure everyone sees how friggin' awesome you are so you can get what you want.

Find Your Unique Voice and Effectively Communicate Your Value

To stand out in the job market, it's crucial that you know your value and can express it in a compelling way. The first step is to understand what makes you special, carefully selecting past experiences that highlight your personality, interests, and work ethic.

I'll walk you through the steps of preparing a LinkedIn, CV, and even a personal website to ensure you're showcasing not only what you've done, but who you are and what you're capable of doing.

Protect Your Energy and Let Go of Perfectionism

Do you constantly feel drained and on the verge of burnout? Are you super hard on yourself, constantly focusing on your mistakes and never stopping to feel proud of your accomplishments?

How to Combat Imposter Syndrome and Embrace Your Self-Worth

Imposter Syndrome is the nagging feeling that you're not good enough. That despite your external success, you're somehow a fraud and will one day be found out. That you're still "faking it to make it" and you're unworthy of praise. Screw that.

I'll give you tools to combat Imposter Syndrome so you deeply believe in your value and can better advocate for yourself at work and in your life.

Key takeaways include:

How to Leverage Your Network for Opportunities

Networking events can sometimes be the worst, even for the most extroverted among us. Who do you talk to first? Where do you stand? Do you have to have business cards? What if you don't have a straight-forward answer to the dreaded question, "what do you do?"

Networking doesn't have to be a necessary evil, when done right it can actually be - gasp! - fun. Mastering how to network like a pro (without feeling sleazy) is one of the most important things you can do not only for your career but for your personal life as well.

How to Build Community

In less than 18 months, I grew the Ladies Get Paid community to more than 20,000 members from all 50 states and 60 countries. I also organized 160 events in 18 cities with a 2-person team and no funding.

I want to share with you how I did it.

The Accidental Activist

Less than 18 months later, I was sued for gender discrimination by members of a men's rights group. I want to help you stand up for what you believe in and rally others to support you.

Key takeaways include:

  • How to motivate others to support you
  • The challenges of being a social entrepreneur
  • How to stay strong in the face of adversity

Key takeaways include:

  • Write your pitch in a compelling way
  • Create a marketing plan
