360: Why We Create Our Own Glass Ceilings
If you have been around a while, this is going to be a little different. Let’s call it Natalie unplugged. No editing. No music. Just me sharing. This episode is inspired by International Women’s Day and the goal of Gender Balance and a conversation we had in The BizChix Coop which is the private FB group I host for women entrepreneurs. I asked the women in there what was holding them back from charging more. We had one of the most engaging conversations ever with that post. It currently has over 230 comments on it. I knew that you were struggling with pricing. I knew that you were struggling with how to charge more, but I didn't understand all that was behind it. A study by Freshbooks, found that women who work for themselves earn 28% less than their male peers. I see lots of statistics about the state of small business for women, but very little explanation of WHY. Why do we have a 28% gap when women are seemingly in charge of their own wages? Join me as I share why I think we struggle to charge more and what we can do about it! Check out the article I published on Medium. I'd be honored if you would share the article and/or this episode. Let's help women make more! --------------------------------- I have some free resources at BizChix.com/stages where I go through the stages of small business and the challenges you may be facing at each stage. It also lists all the podcasts episodes I have recorded that can support you at that stage. This content was first published at BizChix.com/360.
