    for the next one, how about tackling your passions… for instance, ur doing well in what you do but feel kind of stagnant because you’re not putting 100% passion into it… Does that mean it’s time to re-evaluate what you’re doing or do you accept that it’s working and just tweak it so that it brings more happiness!

      Good point although I have to add some women can’t/aren’t passionate about what they do b.c they’re balancing home/children/marriage and perhaps their job is nothing more than added income. Maybe it’s a way to bankroll their passion–a hobby, community service, etc. Other women are following their passion and they’re not necessarily raking in the dough. A few though, and I stress a few are doing both. It’s a question of priorities, definitions, and where we find ourselves in life, no?

    Great interview, and wonderful advice to “always ask” and to be prepared to make the business case for what you want. Thanks for putting together this educational video! One of my secrets to professional success? In negotiation, tell others *why* you want what you want; ask what they want, and then be creative in finding solutions that work for both of you. Future topic suggestion: How does one find out and delicately ensure that a potential sponsor is willing and ready to “sponsor” you?

      I am still working on this. What is the balance between getting what’s fair. It’s tricky to keep the channels open, during a negotiation. Keep calm, cool, and professional. But also know that some people aren’t willing to offer what’s fair. That’s when we must be prepared to walk away and trust that our work and worth will open another and better opportunity around the corner. As for the sponsor question, I don’t know if there’s a delicate way. Just ask.

    “Never be afraid to negotiate or ask for more BUT the secret is in how you ask and go back and forth”.

    Very true, I guess most of us are afraid to negotiate because we don´t know the real value of our work! had to work on that!

      How did you work on it? I have too and I’ve had varying degrees of success. Latina women, especially bloggers are really key influencers. We bloggers have coveted access to the decision makers at the helm of the fabled $1 trillion dollar buying power. We have also built a community and respect based on our authenticity. It’s crucial to communicate this point as individuals and as a community and in this way, be in the driver’s seat. That’s value we’ve built and must protect.
