In this episode of The AMPLIFY Show, I’m chatting with Tara Jones-Williamson, the founder, CEO, and success coach of Your Pretty Pennies.
I first met Tara a few years ago when we sat on a panel together for Ladies Get Paid, and we instantly connected. She is so inspiring to me, not only as a businesswoman, but as a woman. Tara learned about personal finance out of necessity as a single mom trying to make ends meet. Not only was she able to triple her salary and start her own business, but now she helps other women find financial freedom and build wealth.
Tune in to learn about Tara’s strategies for negotiating a higher salary, finding financial success, and creating your ideal lifestyle.
“If you get caught up in the additions and subtractions in life, you start to add and subtract your self-worth… You have to separate your personal value from the value you bring to the workplace, to your finances.” -Tara Jones-Williamson
