Advocating For Yourself (And Your Coins) In Corporate Spaces (9-5's) W/ Cherrise Wilks

41m | Nov 27, 2023

In this episode I'm joined by Cherrise Wilks, Founder of The Fund Finders as well as Affinity Consulting Group. Cherrise is not only a distinguished business development and government consulting leader, she also advocates and mentors, often seen speaking at conferences and conducting training on critical business topics like government contracting and business sustainability. 

In a nutshell, Cherrise is not afraid to talk about money or take the necessary steps to secure it for herself or her clients. This is why I invited her to be in conversation with me about the importance of Black women advocating for themselves in corporate and/or 9-5 spaces,

in this episode we talk about the importance of mindset, how you must ALWAYS negotiate your salary, taking a step back to move ahead and much more.
