00:01:13 Jill’s Iphone: hi everyone I’m on mute!
00:14:59 Leah Suzette: Totally relate to lack of benefits at work… have not gone to lunch one time in the 6 months I’ve been with my current company. Not once. People come in sick etc.
00:17:35 Jill’s Iphone: omg I have been reading about this. employers since 2008 and looking for someone who is a unicorn, threading the needle with super specific skills
00:18:02 Jill’s Iphone: I have noticed employers are not willing to take a chance on someone without each specific
00:18:04 Jill’s Iphone: skill
00:18:11 Emily Rose Prats: 100% – i am experiencing this now
00:18:26 Emily Rose Prats: my experience is in content marketing, but at start-ups, which means I DO EVERYTHING
00:18:56 Emily Rose Prats: but companies are like “ooooh, you don’t have ‘product’ in any title in your work history, so… bye!”
00:31:25 Emily Rose Prats: on the subject of WIN LISTS: if you use a project manager at work, it can count your wins FOR YOU!!! it’s hard for me to list my wins or take credit for what i do, but if i look at the calendar view in asana, it OBJECTIVELY shows me every single thing i’ve checked off and accomplished, and i always end up impressed by myself because I’M not the one taking credit; ASANA is GIVING me credit. i find it so helpful
00:33:18 geenawakeley: I love that Emily! I work in Asana and never thought of it that way. Going to start using that!
00:34:08 Emily Rose Prats: yassss geenaaaa i hope you enjoy it as much as i do
00:34:26 Ada Chen: That is so smart – I should stop archiving my lists in Trello as I complete them and just move them to a ‘wins’ board
00:35:33 Leah Suzette: I use Asana also! love that feature! I still use a paper planner too, with a whole week on just two pages, and it always feels good to see the massive amount of red lines (accomplished tasks) at the end of the week!
00:37:44 geenawakeley: Just a heads up – I couldn’t book a good conference room so I won’t be able to talk as much about my question at the office 🙂
00:52:32 Leah Suzette: I think too, a lot of the time, money can be associated with “evil” and it’s like, we have to rethink… it’s just a tool/a means. I also have negative feelings around money because I also relate to “money = survival” or rather “I don’t have enough money” – huge scarcity mindset around money
00:53:55 Emily Rose Prats: my parents are teachers. when i went home, my dad was complaining about a colleague who’s “in this job for the money.” we had a back & forth about it, but ultimately i was like yeeeaaahhh this is why it’s hard for me to ask for more money at work ?
00:55:08 Leah Suzette: totally feel that about partners! my partner makes double what I make and works less hours and gets better benefits. And I mean, we’re in different fields (tech vs. art) so I keep that in mind.
00:59:36 geenawakeley: i have to hop off for a meeting. See you all on the next call! Thanks for sharing today!
01:01:08 Michelle: gotta head out! writer group friends say hi 🙂 thanks as always ladies for being here for me!! <3
01:04:05 Ada Chen: <3
01:08:38 Emily Rose Prats: my friend works for a non-profit and told me recently that “nobody got raises this year because they just don’t have the money” i was OUTRAGED. she works like 12 hrs/day and if the company can’t afford to compensate her for that work, they shouldn’t be employing people. and i was like “i wonder how much the CEO is making… they can afford to pay HIM!” so i will now use this insight to fight my own tendency to make excuses like this one
01:21:09 Leah Suzette: I would say that in an employer takes you negotiating with them as friction, is not a good employer. I would keep the mindset that negotiating is not friction.
01:21:54 Ada Chen: ^^ agree with Leah
01:24:35 Emily Rose Prats: the dog
01:24:37 Emily Rose Prats: its face
01:24:54 Ada Chen: He’s negotiating with me for pets
01:25:00 Emily Rose Prats: YES LET HIM WIN
01:25:03 Ada Chen: “PET ME”
01:25:12 Leah Suzette: So glad I joined this conversation!
01:26:24 Leah Suzette: I know! one day! I’ll come to the city! haha
01:26:26 Ada Chen: Thanks everyone 🙂 SO SO SO glad I joined
