Gen X women tend to be risk-averse and fiercely independent. Rather than owning our worth, we’re Lone Wolves working in the background. So, how can Gen Xers learn to ask for help and negotiate what we need? What can we do to figure out what differentiates us and articulate that in the marketplace?
Business and Career Strategist Jackie Ghedine is the Cofounder of Modern Gen X Woman, a coaching practice that propels high-achieving, 40-plus women to greater success. Prior to entrepreneurship, Jackie served as Associate Publisher at AdAge, where she led a diverse team in building new businesses and driving revenue. Today, she is a certified life coach who leverages her training in neuroscience and positive psychology to help women own their worth and increase their wealth.
