POKER DIVAS IN THE CARDS

POKER DIVAS IN THE CARDS


hi this is Ellen Leikind on the weekly in
the cards poker divas live video and today we’re going to talk about having
the nuts now having the nuts in poker means having the very best hand nothing
else can beat you and it came to mind recently as we did an event with women
in stem these were women were just starting off in their careers and they
were looking for new jobs there were four four women in one man at the table
along with me and they were talking about the in society that they had
negotiating their job offers and I thought to myself you know these are the
best and the brightest this is a creme de la creme of stem and they really have
the nuts because I’ll tell you right now if you’re a woman in stem everybody
wants you and you should take advantage of this this is a really good time for
you to negotiate and remember nobody comes to you initially with their best
offer there’s room there so go back and ask for more now is the time you’re not
always gonna have the nuts and part of being a good poker player is recognizing
when you have them and you have them now so go in ask for what you want and
really play it very hard at the table you have to worry about the reneging the
offer you don’t have to worry about seeing greedy you don’t have to worry
that somebody’s not gonna like you because they’re gonna like you and what
are they doing they don’t they’re gonna want you in their company so take
advantage of it knowing you have the nuts and let us know luck to your your
stories about how successful you are on your negotiation because you have the
confidence and you know what you bring to the party we’ll be back next week on
poker divas in the cards and until then have a great week
