For many people, simply hearing the word "negotiation" puts them on edge. It might make you think of aggressive wheeling and dealing or stressful haggling. The good news is it doesn't have to be this way! The negotiation mindset is about setting yourself up for success through creative problem solving that goes beyond winning or losing.

In a survey of our clients, their average salary increase was $7,000. Many earned over $15,000! Now it's your turn. Go from amateur to expert negotiator for a one-time payment of $129.
"Alex shares strategies to help people to prepare for successful negotiations in a way that enables them to come armed to the table with proven tactics and to speak with confidence. As someone with deep experience in negotiating contracts, I learned some negotiation strategies from Alex that I had never used. In my most recent negotiation, I used one of her tips during the discussion and was able to end the negotiation with $11,000 more than what was initially put forth. The skills she teaches are invaluable; whether you are a novice negotiator or a seasoned veteran, you can benefit from her coaching when preparing to negotiate a deal."

"Working with Alex was a pleasure. She helped me identify what I wanted — and then how to ask for it! Working with her felt like making a commitment to myself: to ask for a raise, even when it was scary. I was terrified of the conversation with my manager, but at the end of the day, I'm making 29% more than I was before."
B. E., Software Engineer, New York
"I highly recommend working with Alex. From the start, she presented a refreshingly straightforward approach to salary negotiation. Alex helped me break down this very intimidating topic into a logical, step-by-step process, and I felt more and more confident with each step I completed. When I finally walked into my manager's office to present my case, I still felt nervous inside, but I relied on my thorough research to guide me through the conversation. My boss received the information very well and my research helped him advocate for me. Ultimately, I got a raise of almost $20K and an invaluable confidence boost. Thank you, Alex!"
Kate C., Project Manager, Seattle
I went from fear to focus. I could define what I wanted, the value I offered, and how what I was asking for could benefit all involved in the decision.
The framework Ask For It provided succinctly stated all of this gave me the confidence to own my power and drive the conversation. It was worth the investment to develop this critical skill — one I'll continue using regularly in this role and beyond."
