Excerpts

I’m writing a book! #lifegoals

I will post excerpts here & on LinkedIn for comments and feedback. Maybe you’ll guess what the book is about over time!

A short one to start: “According to the National Committee of Pay Equity, women earned 58.9% of what men did the year I was born. No wonder my mom kept working after her labor pains started. Salaries slowly rose through the 80s reaching a high of 66% as compared to men by 1989. My mom was the primary income earner in my house throughout my childhood and after 20 years, she made only $5,000 more than my starting salary of $35,000 at my first job at a startup. As she worked in residential life at a women’s college in New Jersey, it’s not totally a fair comparison (public education salaries vs. private high tech) but still mind boggling.”
