This time of year is busy, and I'm not just talking about Christmas. It's the end of the year, and for us working moms, that means completing projects at work before the end of the year, prepping for year-end reviews, budgets, and planning for the year ahead. In this episode, I'm joined by career strategist Evangelia Leclaire who shares strategies to help you gain confidence and be ready to negotiate for a raise, more time off or a flexible schedule.

Tips from the show
1. Take inventory of the equity you have built with the company, department, your boss, and your team.
- Come with data
- Focus on what's important
- Going forward, create a folder or board on Trello to save all your kudos and evidence of performance. It makes this process a lot easier.
2. Get clear on what's important/expected to the business.
- Think about who you are talking to
- What's important to them?
- What do you think will be important to the business in the next year?
3. Go in with the mindset of agreement. Look for a win win.
