I left my job at Daily Nation last week to start working here at YAZA. My new colleagues are lucky I didn't see this first.

I am so excited to be here and don't worry, I got a fair deal - but when I saw this article from my colleague in South Africa, I got thinking that with negotiation skills like these,  I bet I could have gotten more! These unsure economic times require a woman to save her coins and get as much as she can from every deal. 

It’s all about confidence.
Have the courage and the confidence to ask for what you feel is fair. This is where men often have the upper hand. Their societal dominance across spaces allows them to exhibit much more confidence to ask for what they want - even if they don’t necessarily deserve it. 

Rufaro is so right! If you are looking to get paid what you are worth- check out the rest of her article here.
