  • I wish my husband would have used a better strategy when asking for a raise. He was there two years and the company didn’t give him too many raises!

    • It’s tough to navigate for sure.

      I’ve found that the squeaky wheel gets the grease.

  • SO honored to see my name here! And it was crazy hearing myself on your podcast!!! I am so not worthy.
    This is also a very fitting episode, since I’m trying really hard to be awesome on my new job. 🙂 This episode had so many good tips for me. Thanks!
