As women, we’re expected to put up with too much in the workplace.
Enough is enough.
Hi! Thank you for your interest in Stop Settling in Your Career: An Online Workshop for Freelancers!
I'm really proud of this online workshop, which is a compilation of the best parts of the various times I've offered the workshop live. It even includes a whole bunch of freelancer exclusives designed just for you!
This workshop is for you if you:
need help setting and negotiating your rates so that you can be compensated properly for your labor,
are tired of feeling disempowered in your interactions with clients and potential clients, or
have trouble saying no and holding boundaries when it comes to your work.

Why I created this workshop
The level of inequality that still exists between women and men in the working world angers me. Actually it makes me furious.
And I know I’m not alone. I have countless female friends, colleagues, and clients who have told me stories about how they’re sick and tired of being kept down and held back in their careers by patriarchy, racism, and by the individuals who benefit from them.
Those stories inspired me to create this workshop.
We may work in the same spaces as men,
but we don’t work in the same world as they do.
We need to know how to speak up, stand up, and fight back.
So if you:
don’t feel confident negotiating a higher rate for yourself
feel obligated to always say yes when clients ask for more
have settled for gigs or projects that are just “okay”
find yourself resentfully doing more work than agreed upon at the outset
habitually downplay your own value and contributions
tell yourself you aren’t good enough
are afraid to push back because you don’t want to be labeled “difficult” or “demanding” or lose the chance to do the work, and
are ready to take action
then this workshop was made for you.
We live in a world that doesn’t exactly bode well for women, where frightening and dangerous things continue to happen to women, women of color, queer women, non-binary folks, and trans women every day.
If we continue to let things go, to stay silent, to not claim what’s ours, then it will continue to be the acceptable norm for working women everywhere to be treated as less than.
We can’t let that happen.
By the end of this workshop, we’ll have covered how to:
be a confident advocate for what you deserve (be it a higher rate, more appreciation for your labor, more respect for your boundaries),
set and hold proper boundaries as a freelancer or solopreneur, and
say no to scope creep, work you don't want to do, and to being disrespected.
This is not a lecture. It's an informative, results-oriented experience. You'll get time to practice what you learn and it'll leave you feeling ready, willing, and able to take a stand in the workplace.
