I know you're anxious to ask...
It's not just you; lots of women have told me their fears about asking. You know you need to have the pay raise conversation, but you're not sure how. And more than anything, you're afraid of a No, right?
...and your fear causes you to either:
Because you're too nervous to ask, you don't bring it up. So you're still waiting for your raise (sigh).
You know the meeting is important, but preparing for it seems so overwhelming. So you don't.
You want to prepare for the meeting but you don't how to develop a plan that will work for your situation.
But it can be different next time.

What Makes the Master Class Different?
You've read lots of books and articles on this topic but...
Reading has you consuming content with little impact on your behavior or results.
In contrast, the Ready to Ask Master Class has you doing and applying its content to produce better negotiating behavior and bigger pay raises.
I've labored literally hundreds of hours to design a course that walks you step-by-step through a proven Pay Raise Process in a way that fosters measurable outcomes.
Some women who have done the Pay Raise Process before you have seen remarkable results—raises of 10%, 14%, 17% or more. Others simply got their best raise ever.
Plus you get my 1:1 support. You won't find that in any book, blog or LinkedIn post!
About Your Instructor, Pat Katepoo
Hi, I'm Pat. I started Pay Raise Prep School for Women as a spin-off of my services at WorkOptions.com, online since 1997. (Yes, really. 1997!) There, thousands of women have discovered how to get approval of flexible work, longer maternity leave, and higher pay.
The Ready to Ask Master Class 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. You also get my 1:1 support via email and phone.
Let me be your guide as you get ready to ask so you can finally get the raise you deserve. My advice has been featured in many media outlets, yet working directly with career women is what I like and do best. Let's meet inside the Ready to Ask Master Class.
Are you wondering: Will it work for me?
Yes! Work the process and it will work for you
Think about the before-and-after Plaza Ambush Makeovers on the Today Show: no matter who goes through the process, there is a huge improvement.
That means the transformation is dependent on the process, not the person. Each person starts with a certain degree of makeover potential, yet the process itself works to improve every single one of them.
The Master Class is Your Pay Raise Negotiation Makeover
Likewise, when you DO the Pay Raise PROCESS in the Master Class, you will experience a huge improvement in your preparation and confidence.
You'll be prepared and empowered in new ways to ask for (and get) the raise you want.
PS: Go for your new After outcome in the Ready to Ask Master Class now. You can do this!
What's the Cost?
What is it costing you not to enroll?
How much income are you losing by not being ready to ask?
Without pay raise training, you're losing thousands of dollars a year, every year.
Okay, now the good news.
Your affordable tuition for the Ready to Ask Master Class is a tiny fraction of your costs (above) and it's an investment that pays dividends for years.

You'll complete this training with a crystal-clear Pay Raise Meeting Plan.

As soon as you enroll and pay your tuition, you have immediate access to all the lessons. They are hosted on the Teachable platform for a clear, easy-to-follow format.
You'll be relieved to know the Master Class was designed with busy women in mind. Think of it as a one-day workshop spread over time, so it's very manageable.
I recommend you complete one module every four to seven days so that you complete the course within two to four weeks. That said, you have immediate ongoing access to all the content as soon as you enroll, so you can self-pace as you choose.
There are three training modules with 15 lessons. Most lessons are MP3 audio files, each only 3 to 12 minutes to foster step-by-step learning.
Lessons have worksheets, templates and scripts so you can apply what you learn to your job situation. Visual learners will find PDF transcripts of the lessons plus a couple of teaching videos, too. So there's lots of variety to sustain your interest.
The Master Class finishes with a Master the Meeting module, three final high-impact assignments that will super-charge your pay raise negotiation.
No. Your pay is private so the course is confidential and any support you need is 1:1. So your learning is self-directed, and you send your questions directly to me.
Complete the Master Class and all its assignments within 30 days of your enrollment. Then, if you don't feel you're at a new level of clarity and confident readiness to ask for a raise, send me an email along with your fully-completed Pay Raise Meeting Planner (a refund requirement) by the end of day 30 and I’ll refund 100% of your tuition. (Note: No refunds for just changing your mind or after having the 1:1 coaching session.)
