“Some women as soon as they hear no, back down fast.
They think now I have gone too far or I don’t want this to turn into a conflict.Women often have the same response to low counter offers.
‘They have asked for a lot, the other negotiator offers much less’ and they think ‘OK that will be fine I don’t want to fight about it.’
Remember, not backing down is not the same as starting a fight.” Linda Babcock and Sara Laschever’s Ask for it. An Amazing book on negotiation skill development.
“I think women dress for other women to let them know what their deal is. Because if women were only dressing for men, there would be nothing but Victoria’s Secret. There would be no Dior.” Tina Fey#TinaFey
“Don’t settle for the crumbs for which the world thinks women should be grateful. .. Remember your ultimate goal and accept nothing less.” By tennis legend, Billie Jean King
