HerMoney Podcast: Claire Wasserman And How Ladies Can Get Paid More (Episode 172)

Kathryn Tuggle  |  July 31, 2019

You never get what you don't ask for.

When’s the last time you asked for a raise? In this week’s episode, Jean sits down with Claire Wasserman, founder of Ladies Get Paid, a career development organization that helps women negotiate for pay and power at work. Claire dishes on power, value, and the wage gap in the workplace, and why women have to ask for more money. She also talks about her journey to becoming a feminist and the best advice she’s ever been given around negotiating and asking for more money. She walks us through the negotiating process and tells us why, anytime you negotiate, you should walk through the door with three numbers in mind. (Hint: that first salary offer you get is only a starting point for your negotiating!)

Plus, in mailbag, Jean tackles questions about home building, some of the best ways to increase your retirement savings, and in Thrive, Kelly shares the top money lessons she’s learned after spending six years working with Jean.
