Knowing what you're worth

So, as I have mentioned before I have a new job. This new job didn't become official until Friday, but the part I am quite proud of is how I handled the income aspect. A few days earlier my boss told me what the salary was going to be (I received a bump when I took the temporary position) and I will admit I thought it would be a little more. I had a night to mull it over before we talked about it seriously and when I met with her the next day I asked for more money. The Katie from 6 months ago would never have done that, but I wanted to be true to myself so we negotiated for more money. I have to admit I am quite proud of myself. I feel like am more self assured when it comes to my career and that is good. It makes it easier to be decisive and to have people respect you. I never thought I would be like this, but I'm glad I am!
