I was sitting in my boss’ office for a review. I thought I should get a pay increase, but she didn’t bring it up. I didn’t want to seem greedy or pushy, so I didn’t say anything.
After I signed the paperwork, I’ll never forget what she said…
She said, You never asked for a pay increase. I would have given you one but you never asked.
It was in that moment I realized how not asking was holding me back.
That 1 decision cost me thousands of dollars.
Where are you holding back from asking?
Years later I was looking at an application for the Color of Woman Intentional Creativity Teacher Training. I knew in my heart I wanted to do it, but couldn’t see HOW. I just didn’t have the money.
But instead of just looking at the application and wishing (like I had the year before), I decided to fill the application out and ASK if there was a way. That 1 decision changed my life.
I not only found a way, but ASKING got me my first solo show, workshops and painting sales.
I ended up earning enough money during that year to pay off the training.
That training is the foundation for Woman Unleashed.
So every year, in honor of her I offer a scholarship to the Color of Woman Training.
