Love love loved this episode. Knowing your worth is super important and this one resonates with me a ton. So good!
Listened to my first episode today, Chalkboards to Checkbooks and loved it! Great information that is so helpful! My career is not in education but the tips in here can be applied to anyone and are fundamental to meeting your goals or in some cases like Erinn’s - recalibrating them to be in line with your worth and what you can really achieve!
I’m so excited Dr Erica has created this show for educators. Thank you!
Living a life of ease is my new motto! Loved this candid interview with Erinn Cottman. It’s so important that we share the $ figures and let each other know how we’re doing! Took some invaluable nuggets from this. Thank you!
