How you show up

Brenda Wheatley, Account Manager

“When I was untangling issues in various departments, a coworker sat me down and said, ‘Brenda, you really lack self promotion. You are doing all of these great things, and no one knows about it.’ I gently found a way to start promoting myself as a manager who meets objectives, is creative with staffing, etc. — and it paid off. I no longer worked in a closet and I started tracking revenue improvements. Then I hit up my boss for a raise, and it worked!”
