10. We need to stop double standards against women, with Amanda Montgomery

Play
Read more
Amanda Montgomery is a business lawyer who understands legal representation is not a one-size fits all endeavor. Passionate about empowering women, Amanda set her business' mission to help small businesses and entrepreneurs look out for their best interests.

In this episode, Valerie and Amanda discuss all things women empowerment, toxic labels attached to feminism and how we need to stop being part of the problem and start working together toward the solution. Amanda reveals how a great mentor gave her the tools to question her own role in downplaying her success and how she embarked on the journey of entrepreneurship to support women-owned businesses in Texas.

Through her Instagram account, Amanda provides women legal information that is attainable and relatable, teaching women how to look out for contracts that don't have their best interest in mind, and explains the steps that they can take to become empowered business owners and how to best protect their rights. Amanda believes that women need to start taking an active role in negotiating and requesting payments as "if something is in your contract, then there's nothing wrong with asking for an invoice payment".

From legal advice and best practices, Valerie and Amanda also delved into gender equality, working women and the #MeToo movement.

Key Takeaways:
-Always have a healthy amount of distrust when looking at a contract.
-Contracts are made to have the interests of the person who writes them in mind, not every party's interests.
-If you need to, create a fake persona to take the more uncomfortable asks like send invoice reminders and ask for payments.
-To be successful you don't have to 'grind all day'.
-We have to examine our biases and the way we react to everything in order to shift our decision-making.
-You have more power than you think you have as a business owner.
-Before judging someone, give them the benefit of the doubt: they may not understand other realities because they were never exposed to it.
-You can empower women without being a Radical Feminist and still make the world grow.
