1. Watch the video:


2. Read the text

We need to talk about my contract.
You said I deserved to be your chief of general, that I make your job easier.
Now, I am grateful, but that doesn’t change the fact that I earned this job.
I need to feel as valued, as you say you value me,
-This is just not enough.
-Do you have a number in mind?
I can make that happen.

3. Take the quiz

Don’t be shy and practice saying these words and phrases to yourself, first. If you are meeting someone for the first time, introduce yourself.

This topic is only a suggestion. If talking to someone about money is hard to do, talk about something that is important to you or about something that interests you! It’s always easier to talk about something you are passionate about! Once the conversation is flowing, you’ll be surprised how much you have in common with people from different walks of life!
