Why do we shrink and shy away when it comes to negotiating? How can we manage our emotions in these conversations?
In this episode, I (alongside former co-host Garrett Philbin) talk about what commanding your worth means in practice, and how your feeling of self-worth impacts your ability to ask for more. We dive into the idea of rejection, and how someone saying “no’ to your offer doesn’t reflect who you are as a person. We also share examples of how we’ve commanded our worth, and offer practical tips on how to feel more confident in asserting yours.
