How to Change Your Life


Annette Saldana is a mindset and communication coach for clients navigating the business world. Her Smart Ask Success series relives the successes her clients were able to achieve by working with Annette to make a smart ask: a request for a higher salary, promotion, or raise that changed the narrative and allowed for her client to advance her career and pay. By sharing these stories, we hope to give an example for readers who are interested in achieving the same types of success.

Have you ever wanted something but been afraid to ask for it?

I know I have.

In fact, I don’t know a single person who can answer “No, I haven’t.”

Fear is normal when asking for something you want. But if you let that fear determine your actions, you’ll be left out of the amazing opportunities that can occur when you ask for what you want.
