I actually had the chance to participate in one of their workshops this summer, and it was a total eye-opener. I’d always suspected my negotiation skills were terrible, but the event not only confirmed my worst fears—it gave me the tools to move forward by inspiring me to build on my strengths while addressing my weaknesses.

This week, Alex answers these questions:

  • Why is salary negotiation such an important skill?
  • How can women improve their confidence when negotiating their salary?
  • What advice would you give a woman thinking of starting her own company?
  • What are your favorite foods to eat while working?

Get the answers on Jess's blog!

Stay tuned for Missy's feature next week.
