Ladies, Let’s Do This! Here’s How We Can Effectively Close the Gender Pay Gap [Action Required!]

A CNN Money article highlighted the wage gap difference between women and men in the United States:

Women earned 79.6 cents for every dollar men made in 2015, according to data from the Census Bureau released last year. Meanwhile, Labor Department data show women earned about 82 cents for every dollar a man made in 2016.


Very devastating.

In case you didn’t know, every year we reach a symbolic day called Equal Pay Day to represent the day that women will have made the same amount of money men made in the previous year.

April 4, 2017 marked the day that women made what men made in December 31, 2016.

How does that make you feel?

You go to work everyday doing the same thing your male counterpart does…and he makes MORE!

Yes, there is awareness brought to this issue, but WHAT is the solution?

While I am glad that the awareness of the pay gap between men and women is recognized, I am still not satisfied until something is actually done about it.

Nothing will happen unless you step up and DO something about it.

Actions speak louder than words.

The good news is…there IS is a solution!

Join me and thousands of other fed-up women as we take the pledge to Earn More Money! 

Your action to this movement is required. 

Yes, there is a such thing as a movement of this magnitude and the movement is growing and growing! Be part of the solution.

The Earn More Money movement was founded and is led by America’s Money Maven, Patrice C. Washington.

Patrice is a entrepreneur, certified financial expert, financial coach, and a best-selling author dedicated to helping women financially transform their lives from debt management to money mastery.

You may have also seen her on your TV screens as the money maven on The Steve Harvey Show and his radio show giving realistic financial advice to women and couples in need of guidance.

Her raw approach to helping women find wealth is God-given. As I like to say, “she’s the real deal Holyfield!” Ha!

She’s highly educated with degrees from the University of Southern California, but it was her life-altering experiences that captured my heart. When life happened to Patrice, she used her God-given talents to escape her struggles and now she is unapologetically taking the world by storm.

As you move further into the movement, you will notice how she is openly transparent about her financial struggles during the recession in 2008.

Let’s get into this actionable movement, shall we?

First of all, the movement is absolutely FREE! Therefore, there should be no excuses of why you cannot join.

The Purpose

As mentioned, there is a pay gap between men and women in the workplace. While there is awareness, there is no solution. After discovering this ongoing issue, Patrice created this movement to help women, like you and me, to effectively close this gap.

You will be taught how to discover and use your God-given talents to get paid what you deserve. Oh, believe me when I tell you, you do have a God-given talent.

As Patrice so eloquently put’s it, “it’s our birthright!”

How Does it Work?

Go to and take the pledge.

All you do is enter your name and email and you’ll be sent daily emails for a period of 25 days giving you actionable principles on how to start your journey to earning more.

Each emailed principle includes detailed instructions on how to rock each task that’s assigned to you for that given principle.

And, as a bonus, Patrice does daily LIVE Facebook and Periscope videos going more in-depth (beware: a lot of realness takes place!) about the principle that was emailed to you that day.

Here’s a quick video about the I Can Earn More movement:

I am part of the movement right now and I am loving it! You will learn something new everyday! I’s definitely a wake up call. It’s not too late to start.

Once you start, come to the sister circle, #XpressYourself, and let me know if you have any questions. Or, if you need an accountability partner, which is something Patrice talks about, please let me know too!

After taking the pledge, I strongly advise you check out Patrice’s introductory video to the movement. She breaks it down:

Ok, you guys know that I am the ultimate Beyonce fan, right?

Some people don’t understand why Beyonce is still working. She’s made millions of dollars and started her family before the age of 40. Her husband is worth even more, but she still g-r-i-n-d-s!

She simply loves what she does. And worked hard to get there. Why not get paid to KEEP doing it? In the words of Sheree Whitfield (Real Housewives of Atlanta), “who go check me boo?”

Beyonce wants more! And what’s wrong with that? Don’t you want to earn more for your God-given talents? One can clearly see that her multi-million dollar checks are not given to her, she EARNS them!

Believe it or not, I admire her more as a businesswoman than I do as a entertainer. On the surface, she’s got her ish together!

Here’s my favorite part from her women’s empowerment song – Who Run the World (Girls)? 🎤

You can’t hold me (you can’t hold me)
I work my 9 to 5, better cut my check
This goes out to all the women getting it in,
You’re on your grind
To other men that respect what I do
Please accept my shine
Boy I know you love it
How we’re smart enough to make these millions
Strong enough to bear the children
Then get back to business
See, you better not play me
Oh, come here baby
Hope you still like me
F- you hate me

Now do you understand why we should get on this journey to earning more?

The dream is FREE but the HUSTLE is sold separately!

We MUST do the work to yield a positive outcome. 

Stop complaining about it and DO something about it.

I told Patrice that I would be sharing this with you guys. Don’t say I didn’t tell you about this movement (side eye) 😑

Here’s the cherry 🍒 on top of all this earn-more-money goodness, you can invest in her book – Real Money Answers for Every Woman: How to Win the Money Game With or Without A Man. 📚

I have this book on my Amazon Kindle (affiliate link). I read it like in 3 days. This book is like no other.

Here’s the premise of the book from Amazon:

Real Money Answers for Every Woman teaches you how to take responsibility for your financial future, whether you’re just starting out or need a fresh start. In a handy Q & A format, it offers relatable and easy to understand and implement advice on everything from managing credit cards, home ownership, and student loans to affordable childcare and even negotiating for a higher salary. Following Patrice’s practical advice, you’ll learn to form “wealthy” habits, establish an “opportunity fund,” stop collecting STUFF that causes debt, and discover the freedom that comes from feeling financially secure.

I don’t want to overwhelm you with all my chatter, just head on over to to sign up for the movement!

Let’s stop the pay gap and get this shmoney! 💰
