Last month the BBC on it’s “can pay will pay” radio programme last month asked many people from a range of backgrounds “How much do you earn…?”  Reactions that the reasearchers received were * astonishing glares *polite refusals * evasive generalities * embarassed sniggers and  *silence.   Many of us do not want to reveal what we earn by we would be interested in what others earn.    From Oct 1st the new Equality Act promotes transparency around pay. 

To learn how to gain more confidence on your:

1. Earnings and how to negotiate,

2. Net worth and how to grow it

3. Finances and make them work better

4. Knowledge about your money get in control and drive your plan

I would love to meet and encourage you with a great group of women on either Tuesday 16th Nov 9.30 am – 12.00 or Wednesday 17th Nov 7pm to 9.30pm

5:  Learn to negotiate – Most women need serious practise at asking for more money.  Remember, as long as you ask reasonably, your boss can only say no.  Don’t moan – argue for a rise on the basis of your performance.  Don’t threaten to resign if you don’t mean it.

6:  Be one step ahead – What objections will your boss have if you ask for more money?  Anticipate what will be said so that you have a good answer.

7:  Have a face-to-face – Ask to speak to your boss in person so you can both understand the situation and agree what can be done to change it.

8: Get some support – If a chat with your boss doesn’t work, talk to your female colleagues and gather support.  If you feel underpaid or undervalued, chances are others do too.  Lodge a complaint together.

9: Use the law – A trade union can help you fight for equal pay.  They’ll negotiate on your behalf and take legal action if necessary.

10: Be positive – Never apologise for asking for more money, believe in yourself. If you believe in yourself others will to.

Whatever stage you are at in your life, it is vitally important that you have the knowledge and practical skills to take control of your money and your life!

So many women find talking about money uncomfortable and therefore avoid the subject – only to find later in life that they are left in a poor financial state either through relationship break-up, partner dying or not being adequately rewarded for the work that they do.  The statistics prove that too many women have to rely on hand-outs, low wages or meagre pensions.

I am host and speaker at a two hour taster seminar which will explain how to: 

  • Break through myths and attitudes around money
  • Find out the difference between women who build a strong financial foundation and those who don’t
  • Know the secrets of women who have it all (financial security and living the life of their dreams)
  • How emotions, fears and attitudes can help or hinder getting what you are worth

 You will gain tips on: 

  • How to organise your finances and build your future security
  • How to be financially savvy

I will be joined by guest speaker, Louise Houghton, who has 20 years’ experience in the Investment and Insurance Industry offering highly personalised service.  She is genuinely interested in helping women achieve financial freedom with clarity and assurance throughout the process.

The first session is on Tuesday 16th November 2010 – 9.30am to 12 noon or alternatively we are holding a second session on Wednesday 17th November 2010 – 7.00pm to 9.30pm.

Have you ever been double booked or invited to two exciting things on exactly the same date?   Frustrating hey!  I have been invited to speak on the Ann Diamond show – BBC Berkshire at 12.00 today with Maria Millar MP.  Re: ” How to Get Women in Senior Positions and Influence.”  However I already have an important meeting with a new client today which I am excited about.   Keeping your commitments is important to maintain your credibility and reputation.   I do love doing the inspirational talks and debates but it just as important to me to demonstrate practically what I do best.  Showing others how to succeed in their professional roles . For business, my paying clients are critical for enabling me to share my knowledge with a wider audience.  For which I am grateful.   How about making your  lunch time priority the Ann Diamond show today?  http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/playlive/bbc_radio_berkshire/

Here are some great questions from some young women during  the international women’s week celebrations in Basingstoke.   Fashion Retail and Business Students from BCOT caputured attention by displaying they important questions.   It was fabulous to get a message across in this creative way but my concern is that it was a silent message.  My passion is to encourage and show women how to speak up and get their voices heard by key decision makers who will influence their career.   It is important for women to get out the habit of  “waiting to be asked”.  Enjoy the photos…
