Showing up can position yourself in a dynamic way that allows no room for negotiation; you deserve that raise! This week’s episode 16 of How Women Inspire Podcast is about the stepping stones of showing up that lead to success.

She's the host of 10 Times Growth Strategies podcast, and she’s an investor with many years experience on boards and various roles. She understands the importance and the value in showing up, even as a volunteer, until you become successful.
In this episode of How Women Inspire Podcast, Julie Castro Abrams and Preethy Padman are sharing the importance of being unabashedly visible and actionable steps you can take right now to grant yourself success through showing up thoughtfully and intentionally.
Some of the talking points Julie and Preethy go over in this episode include:

The biggest leadership skills Preethy learned through her various roles, and how her unique perspective guided her to be the leader she is today.
How to negotiate higher pay, an equal salary, more responsibility or that raise, as a woman, and do it in a way that creates no room for doubt.
Preethy’s five “S”s to success: self-awareness, self-care, seeking help, setting boundaries and stretching ourselves.
Preethy has served on lots of nonprofit boards, and you'll get to know her and her deep commitment to the world and the community through this episode.
