She Negotiates Leadership WorkshopJust two weeks ago, I was greeting the morning as I walked along the sparkling oceanfront in Santa Barbara. I’d spent the day before at the most remarkable Leadership Workshop put on by She Negotiates.  Oh it was so beautiful, so restorative. I needed that hour of free flowing bliss before I strapping myself back into the plane for the seven hour trip back to New York. I spent most of the trip back thinking about the workshop.

Though I’d given the keynote and led part of the workshop, I was also there as a learner, wishing I’d had the negotiating skills She Negotiates partners Vickie Pynchon and Lisa Gates taught the group when I was starting out in my career. Do you know that failure to negotiate first salaries aggressively costs women on average $500,000 over our lifetime earnings? And that the more education you have and the higher on the career ladder you are, the more it costs you–as much as $1,000,000!

Well, here’s the good news: there’s a new surge of women determined to help us not just negotiate about money better but also to be a lot smarter about managing what we have. This week’s roundup is a collection of some of the best. Check them out, and learn.

Money Wi$e Women’s Blog  is a site that really has a vast variety of concepts to teach women about money management.  Founder Marcia Brixey encourages women to not only learn about money but how to take the actions to achieve a healthy financial life.

Belinda Fuchs with her radio show Own Your Money and webtools brings her 17 years in corporate finance to bear as a coach, philanthropist and CPA.  Her webtools are where women struggling in today’s violent economy can get “unstuck” and take back financial control.
