What goes through your mind when you hear the word “negotiation?”
Are you hesitant? Do you feel like you need to walk into a battlefield and unsheath your sword (hella scary!) or wear a power suit so you look “tough?”
Tori Dunlap wants to assure that it’s not the case at all. In fact, it’s more about a mutual agreement and a conversation you can have as soon as today. She comes on Beyond The Dollar to chat about how to approach negotiations from a mindset standpoint, why using some online resources can backfire on you when determining salary and small tips on how to boost your confidence when negotiating.
Tori Dunlap is the founder of Her First $100k where she gives women actionable resources to reach their first six figures. Her career started with landing a digital marketing contract worth tens of thousands, and a full-time position as the head of marketing and communications for a global security company — all before she turned 22.
