Make it a habit to teach a younger person some negotiation skills.

It took a woman to tell me “you are charging less than the other consultant yet you are more knowledgeable and skilled in that area”

Will never forget her or that day!
Negotiating salary, putting your foot down on the fee that is fair, esp for women (even harder for young women) takes beating these statements of “be grateful for opportunity” out of your head.

It takes someone helping you see why you must be valued.
If you have power to negotiate on their behalf never go with ‘the current rate’.

The current rate is usually based on past employers who underpaid them.

Don’t determine pay on current circumstances of the person, look at budgets of organization looking for a service.
My work range from volunteer work for causes I deeply care about (some months it can be all I did) to starting out organisations with no budgets to well established ones.

So I see value = compensation differently depending on who I choose to do work with.
I negotiate based on organizations work, standing and worth. I know mine, So I adjust the fee to cater for my other interests-platform for myself, ability to amplify/bring along other people.

The established ones offsets any time I put in to do volunteer work (most of the time)
I think figure out what you want to do with the knowledge you have. We know the people who own and in ventures with flower farms are in state house or close by. Women flower farmers have associations seek them and find how you want to support
