Influencing Women – Pay Inequality

March 27, 2019

Inspiration, Wednesday Wisdom and Pay Equality for women, women entrepreneurs, women in sports

8,080,000 is the number of pay equality quotes on a quick Google search. Think about that figure 8 million for a moment. It’s larger than the Power Ball jackpot, more than the cost of a Super Bowl advertisement which costs $5.2 million or equal to the 2016 Nobel Foundation prize in Swedish Krona.

As Women’s History Month draws to an end, I would be remiss to not remind you why Women TIES exists. Within our mission lie the very words “pay inequality” because powerfully put, “I want women to make more money to help eradicate pay inequality.” I can foster this by giving women entrepreneurs the benefits of my 14 year marketing platform to advertise their names, increase opportunities for branding and economic connections with other women, and inspire them to exchange money with other females until there is a pay equality law.

I carry this message with me everywhere I go whether it’s at a Women TIES event or at a community gathering of women like the “Celebrating Aging” event in Rochester yesterday when I sat with a table of female attorneys from Harris Beach. Every chance I have I announce my company’s mission to try to influence the females I meet. I’ll do it tomorrow when I speak to 100 female college students at a special S.T.E.A.M event in Utica.

My core message to the 18 to 22 year old women is to encourage them to discover their own strong, powerful personal mission to develop their career, change the world and make a difference. It will also to influence them to ask for equal pay, raises and promotions – to be their own best pay advocate. In my opinion, life is too short to not be pursuing individual meaningful change. Every woman has a unique reason she was placed on this earth with a unique passion and duty to carry out and influence others.

Today I ask you to think about yours. Why are you here and what are you suppose to accomplish? Who is your demographic? How can you spread your personal passion? How many people do you hope to reach in a year, decade or lifetime – 8 million perhaps? Have you thought about how powerful YOU really are if you tune into your special reason for living and working? Also, are you getting paid the best rate? Are you asking for more? Are you sure you are paid equal to men in the same careers? If not, why?

This Wednesday Wisdom is to truly influence you to think about 8 million reasons or maybe a little bit less on why you matter so much to this place in time and why you deserve to make the most money you can.

    Great points Tracy! Women must continue to help each other and help themselves. Find a way to promote themselves and their abilities while encouraging and lifting up other women along the way! We are stronger together!!

    Thank you Kim for commenting! It truly is the only way. We must depend on other women in life, business, sports and equality issues. Wishing you a strong, powerful day.
