Episode 42: Owning your worth

“I find the more clear we are, with what we want in our life, what we want in our business, and why, we start stepping into our confidence more easily.” - Ashley Paré

Own Your Worth™ founder and CEO Ashley Paré talks about the difference between worth and value, and how the way we define them can shape our career path.

The thought of negotiating a 5-figure pay raise is enough to make most people’s palms sweat. But it’s what Ashley helps her clients do every day. Women especially tend to struggle with attaching self-worth to the amount of their paycheck without realizing how inherently worthy they already are.

Helen and Ashley talk about untangling our attachment to money and letting go of any guilt we might feel over being focused on money.

What we tackle in this episode:

  • How sometimes getting a ‘no’ feels better than not asking at all

  • The importance of establishing corporate values and culture

  • The fear surrounding entrepreneurship and how it never really goes away, but changes

  • Why taking care of ourselves first needs to stay a top priority

  • The misconception that focusing on money means you aren’t doing good
