From our pal Michelle Markowitz: Just wanted to pass along this video from Fast Company on how people really interpret what you say when you ask for a raise (if you’re not careful).
For those of you who missed it: Here’s audio of the live event we hosted on Jan. 28. featuring stories from Anne Helen Petersen, Jazmine Hughes, Jason Diamond, Jia Tolentino, Helaine Olen, Logan Sachon, Christiana Cole, and the Billfold Staff.
Pull up those balances!
Unfortunately, they don’t have Wi-Fi so we won’t be able to stream it, but we’re going to try to record the audio so you can listen later if you’re unable to come to the event.
NICOLE: The most important thing is that I have a unique outfit for every day. The rest we can figure out as we go.
Today’s post about the 31-year-old who lives at home gave me the idea that we should have an open thread about how much help we take or took from our parents, or how much we help our parents instead. I’ll volunteer to go first!
Back with more tomorrow!
The reason I stopped using the neti pot has to do with the amoeba Naegleria fowleri. This amoeba literally eats your brain.
