Is it time to renegotiate your salary or ask for a raise?

It can be intimidating – so be sure you are prepared. There are some very specific steps you can take to position yourself for these critical conversations. 

Here’s something to keep in mind before you jump into the episode: 

There are more things you can ask for beyond a wage increase; things like more time off, leaving the office early, paying for additional daycare, investing in some enhancements to your existing office equipment, or even office upgrades. You can use these strategies, not just to ask for additional money, but as ways to make your work experience more enjoyable too.

So, let’s try and get that wage gap a little smaller, shall we? As you plan for these conversations, I encourage you to think about your approach. Because, if you're going to ask for a raise or extra compensation, you need to have a plan.  In this episode, I will share 10 specific steps that will help you feel prepared and confident for having these critical conversations.

The Piketon Massacre

The Piketon Massacre

The most notorious mass murder in Ohio’s history happened on the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Pike County. Four crime scenes, thirty-two gunshot wounds, eight members of the Rhoden family left dead in their homes. Two years later a local family of four, the Wagners, are arrested and charged with the crimes. As the Wagners await four back-to-back capital murder trials, the KT Studios team revisits Pike County to examine: crime-scene forensics, upcoming legal proceedings, and the ties that bind the victims and the accused. As events unfold and new crimes are uncovered, what will it mean for all involved? What will it mean for Pike County?
