Episode Highlights

05:46 – Without a solid foundation there can be: 1) significant anxiety; 2) if you do not feel you have a place at the table financially, you may not feel like you have a place at the table professionally; 3) because this isn’t something that’s taught in school, it can feel very foreign.

08:52 – Calculated risk is being informed about the potential obstacles and the opportunities in a situation and eventually just moving forward – a leap of faith at some point. The risk with research.

17:58 – Confidence is more about self, and feeling self-worth, and feeling worthy and deserving of what we’re given, what we have, and what we strive for.

23:22 – Guys make more half the time because they ask for more because they feel they deserve it.

27:45 – Advocate for yourself in your career, heavily in your finances. If you don’t ask, you’ll never receive. And lay a strong foundation. Understand your benefits.
