Get ready for a raise in only three days

Pay Raise Prep Crash Course

In a hurry to prep for your pay raise meeting?

Your performance review is coming up fast and you're in a mild panic: you don't have a clear plan for pitching your pay raise. Will you wing it? Or wimp out? Or...

If you're serious about getting the salary you deserve, and you're in a hurry, you need a better approach to the pay raise conversation with your manager.

Pay Raise Prep School's Crash Course has a proven seven-step process to help you get ready, get confident and get a Yes to your pay raise request.

Yes, even by next week.

But you're anxious to ask, right?

In fact, maybe you're so nervous about it that your mind freezes; you can't even think of a plan for how you'll handle the pay raise meeting.

You want to make a pitch to your manager for more, yet you fear rejection more than anything, right? So you figure you'll end up disappointed by a paltry pay increase—again.

When you're underpaid or undervalued, all this is frustrating, isn't it?

But this time, it CAN be different.

The Secret of Women Who Get Higher Raises:
Special Preparation Breeds Confidence

If you dove into the research on gender and negotiation, (and I’ve done that for you), you’d discover that women who prepare for their performance review in a particular way get higher raises.

Could you do what they do?

YES. In seven methodical steps over three days, the Pay Raise Prep Crash Course translates the research into specific action steps so you have a clear, customized plan for what to DO and SAY to get a decent pay raise.

(Don't worry; the content does not take three full days to complete; it's simply well-paced so you can complete it after work or over a weekend.)

Your new action plan strips out the self-doubt and bakes in the tactics you need to pull it off with confidence.

Angie V.Engineer and Production Manager, Boston

My manager said that...he couldn’t do the $80k I asked for; eventually, we agreed on $75k [up from $60k]. I had to really stay firm and not take No for an answer to get a raise of this level. I’m so glad I pulled it off! Your [crash course] made a difference in my preparation and confidence to get there. Thank you so much! (PS: Before her training, Angie said, "I really need to gain the confidence to ask for what I deserve." And she did!)

About Your Instructor, Pat Katepoo

Pat Katepoo

Hi, I'm Pat. I started Pay Raise Prep School for Women as a spin-off of services at, online since 1997. There, thousands of women have discovered how to get approval of flexible work, longer maternity leave, and higher pay.

Let me be your guide as you get ready to ask for a raise under a pressing deadline. The Pay Raise Prep Crash Course builds on my two decades of experience advising professionals, plus it weaves in the curated tactics of “what works” from top negotiation researchers in the USA.

Why a crash course? Because I know you're in a hurry to get results. Let's get going!

It Works, Yet It's NOT For Everyone

My clients are smart, interesting career women and I love working with them. You're probably in that category, too, yet the Crash Course still might not be a good fit for you. Best to find that out now. Please do NOT enroll if:

Your idea of online training is to consume some videos and then you're done.
The course content is not simply information about asking for a raise—you can get that anywhere. It's about building skills and applying research-backed tactics to get the raise results you want. If you're not willing to DO the action steps (and they're not found in videos), you're not a match.

You're unwilling to trust the process and follow the course structure.
If you plan to pick and choose which steps to complete, or lightly skim through them, you won't get the outcomes this course was explicitly designed to reach. (Especially if you skip Step 7.) It's better than you skip the entire course.

You don't have time to complete the seven steps before the scheduled meeting with your manager.
If your meeting is in a few days, or worse, tomorrow, even this Crash Course can't help. You need at least three days before the meeting to complete all seven steps in the course. Otherwise, it's a wash.

Who This Course IS For

Are you a good fit for the Pay Raise Prep Crash Course? The answer is Yes if you meet the following criteria.

You're underpaid or undervalued at your current job.
You're a solid performer yet your salary lags behind industry standards, your level of achievements, or both. You've decided that another year of underearning is not an option and it's time to be proactive about your pay.

You're committed to being well-prepared for your pay raise request this time.
You recognize that winging it, preparing half-way, or giving in to your fears are not viable pay raise request strategies. You're eager to take a proven path to better negotiating behaviors and raise results.

You're in a hurry.
The timing is ripe to ask because of a recent job achievement or promotion. Or your performance review is due and scheduled. In any case, you don't want to miss your chance for a nice salary jump and you need help preparing to ask for your raise now.

You can follow a recipe.
If you like doing the methodical steps of a workshop or workbook, you'll like the skill-by-skill design found in the seven steps of the Pay Raise Prep Crash Course. And you'll enjoy the "finished product," too.

If you're a match, I'd be pleased to help you reach your pay goals. Enroll now and let's get started.
