CONTRIBUTOR

Alexandra Dickinson

I write about how to use a negotiation mindset to achieve your goals.

I am the CEO and founder of Ask For It, a boutique communications training and consulting firm whose mission is to foster confidence and inspiration in leadership and life. Ask For It was my side hustle until I got laid off and decided to devote myself to it fulltime. In the past year I've trained over 1000 women and men to negotiate.

When I'm not writing for Forbes, I volunteer as the co-city manager of the NYC Lady Project, a national nonprofit that connects, showcases and inspires women.
