ASK LIKE AN AUCTIONEER

Ask For More. Get It.

When we ask, we aim low—asking for what we think we can reasonably get, afraid of risking too much, and get nothing at all. The result? We leave money and opportunity on the table. Flip the script and stop doing that right now.

Join the thousands of women who are stepping into their ZOFO, asking for more and getting it, and reaching their goals on their own terms. Put yourself in control by learning to:

Set your reserve.

You get to say no. Decide now when you’ll do that. Your reserve helps you know when to walk away and with clarity and confidence.

Understand price is a measure of value not worth.

Because your worth and worthiness are infinite. What someone will pay or do in response to your ask is only a measure of what they value, not a way to define your worth.

Find the offer in every ask.

Know what you’re offering in your ask and it becomes an opportunity for everyone, makes you a better storyteller and helps you ask for more.

…and what to do when you get a “no”.

Oh you’ll get a hard no now and again. It’s ok because you have a plan that makes the no a speed bump not a dead end on your path to reaching your goals.
