Effective Asks: Earn More and Get Yes More

To earn more you have to have a sense of your value, your distinct difference (sometimes called brand), and you have to believe the transformation you offer is worth it. 

Have you cried in a meeting? Have you broken into tears asking for help? Have you been in  tears about your current job situation and yet not known what to do about it? 

In this short episode, I ask Dr Sharon Melnick about two key scenarios I’ve seen over and over in the fitness industry. Whether it’s happened to you, or almost, or you can empathize because maybe you so get it but wouldn’t allow yourself to be in that situation… this is for you. 

The episode describing Dr. Melnick’s new book is available at flippingfifty.com/in-your-power for you to listen to after this. 

My Guest:

Her approaches are informed by 10 years of Psychology research at Harvard Medical School. She’s coached/ trained 40,000 professionals at over 50 Fortune 500 companies and numerous start-ups and women-led companies, and presented at conferences worldwide (including at the White House, West Point, and the United Nations).

Her new book about how women can use their power to advance their career and end disrespect is titled In Your Power: React Less, Regain Control, Raise Others, available now for pre-order. She is also the best-selling author of Success under Stress: Powerful Tools to Stay Calm, Confident, and Productive when the Pressure’s On. Dr Melnick enjoys hosting the Power Shift podcast.

Questions Dr. Melnick answers in this episode: 

  • Female fitness professionals notoriously struggle to charge enough to make enough – what advice would you offer? 
  • Women in fitness working for small, mid, and large size fitness centers tend to bring emotions with them to meetings. The saying, there’s no crying in business comes to mind. But I’ve seen tears way too often in meetings with upper management. 

That’s it. Helpful? You can earn more by stepping into your own power.
