Women…Earn What You’re Worth – Jacqueline Twillie

Women still earn less than men, so having a good negotiation strategy in place is critical to you earning what you're worth. It’s International Women’s Day today (March 8th) so that means it’s time to talk about equal pay for women. It feels like we’ve been having this conversation forever and yet we continue to talk about the inequality in pay. Just wondering when this will finally change.

Jacqueline Twillie has been a guest on Millennial Money in the past, so I couldn’t think of anyone better to have as a guest today. Jacqueline spends her day teaching people how to negotiate their way through their career and fighting for equal pay for women. She has created an amazing Negotiation Toolkit full of her fantastic tips to help you nail your negotiations.

Based off an article in U.S. News, there are 5 Ways (if not more actually) that your boss might be helping you to retire.

Things like matching funds in your 401(k) and funding a portion of your health savings account. All of those items don’t increase your salary, but it is still extra money that is growing for your financial future.

In this podcast, I had the opportunity to interview Jeanne Thompson, VP of Thought Leadership at Fidelity.
