Women & Money Cafe Podcast

We recorded this the same week the Bank of England said we shouldn’t be asking for big pay rises. 

As you can imagine, we took that as a green light to:

  • Share tips on how to prepare to ask for more money
  • How to handle the conversation
  • What to do if you get a No

Be sure to listen to the end where we drop a bombshell that’s going to shock you.

We had lots of messages from you preparing for this episode, and we’ve done our best to answer all the questions you sent in.

Key talking points:

5.00 Some stats on who has asked for a pay rise, who is going to, and what success you’ve had.

7.36 Still doing the same job you were hired for, can you ask for more?

9.53 Preparing in advance for the conversation.

15.32 Drip feeding information & taking the emotion out of the conversation.

22.18 When you know one of your peers is being paid more than you.

25.00 Why this isn’t just a conversation about money today.
