"Through working in a mentorship capacity with Natalie at She's Independent I was able to successfully negotiate a 43% increase in compensation!" - Paige M.
"I really enjoyed having Natalie coach me on my negotiation skills. Her perspective and experience were very valuable in helping me understand what I need to do improve in my future negotiations. Natalie's background in venture capital was also invaluable in helping me understand different perspectives in relation to how deals are negotiated. I highly recommend her in this capacity, and I look forward to working with her again. Thank you Natalie, I appreciate you!" -Rob K.
