Become an Influencer & Badass Negotiator, Confidence for the Badass WOC 

Presenter: Nadia De Ala
Time: 11:15 AM

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP :

To run a lucrative and prosperous business, you need to make money.

If asking for what you want and need to thrive in business scares you, this is the workshop for you!

Look, it’s not your fault you weren’t taught how to negotiate or have influence during critical conversations. Your parents likely taught you to be resilient and to be grateful for your job opportunities. They didn’t teach you to unapologetically ask for what you want and deserve and be willing to walk away when things weren’t a good fit.

This workshop is here to jumpstart your confidence and overcome your fears and behavior patterns that stop you from activating your voice and negotiation your pay, influence and relationships in your work and in your business.

ABOUT SAMA SAMA

In 2014, a group of five Pilipina mamas came together to talk about the possibility of creating a summer camp where their children could learn Tagalog, learn about their culture, and be outdoors. We wanted our children to learn about their rich history and heritage!  We  envisioned a learning environment that would “fill the gaps” of their formal school education. We also recognized the power of learning in community  and so the idea of Sama Sama Cooperative was born.

We are a collective of first, second, and third generation Pilipino-American parents, community organizers, artists, activists, professionals and educators living in the San Francisco Bay Area. Together, we are creating meaningful learning experiences rooted in what it means to be Pilipino and Pilipino-American.

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP: 

“I help women of color working create an empowering relationship with prosperity on a mechanical, emotional, and spiritual level so they can live their version of a fulfilled life without being talked over, or made to feel shameful about past life choices.”

A reported 65% of women don’t feel totally confident about making financial decisions. A surprising fact is the main factor that contributes to this high percentage has nothing to do with your money management, financial education, or how much money you make. It has to do with your money script!

Have you ever said the following to yourself:
– “I don’t come from money, therefore I don’t know how to make money work for me.”
– “Only some people have the option to make their money grow.”
– “I feel helpless when it comes to money.”
– “No matter what I do, I’m always broke.”
– “Money is confusing, I never get it!”
– “I’d like to start growing my money, but I never have enough at the end of the month to save.”
– ” I want to start my own business, but I’m afraid that I won’t make enough money if I do.”

Are you ready to let go of these negative beliefs and flip your money script??

Transformations To Look Forward To:
– Change your negative money beliefs to new positive ones.
– Create a new relationship with your money and your future.
– Feel empowered to make better money choices.
– Ability to let go of feelings of shame, guilt, and fear around money.
– Cultivate new beliefs that reflect the life you desire and deserve!

What can you expect to receive this workshop?
– A better understanding of the mechanics behind your beliefs and how you can change them.
– The ability to identify your limiting money beliefs.
– Learn the tools to be able to change your money script now and in the future.
– Be surrounded with like-minded Entrepinays who are open to self development.
