Being the oldest daughter of seven girls and a successful entrepreneur in a male dominated industry, I am ALL about GIRL POWER! I say break the glass ceiling, be empowered, go for broke! However, at the risk of setting womenís lib back 60 years, the advice I give to the female attorneys at the DPBR is simple! If you donít like your pay, then find another job and maybe take some negotiation training!


See, I donít believe for a minute that these ladies should have the ability to waste their employerís time and money whining because their male counterparts are paid more. Calling this some sort of discrimination is ludicrous! Negotiating your salary is just like buying a car. The better negotiator you are, the better deal you get! You canít go back after the fact and whine that your friend bought the same car, paid less and that you want what they got!!! Iím sure many of you are going to disagree with me, so let me have it.
