Gold stars and kind words

        Terry  walked me through the mental process (from both sides) and the rationale for my "ask." Her guidance gave me the confidence to request the figure I hoped for. It was an incredible learning experience for me, just to muster the confidence to do it, and now I see the benefits every time I receive payment for my work.
