we do that to be nice. we have to learn to be comfortable advocating for ourselves. that's why this pitch competition is so perfect. it really drives the message home. it forces women to get up under the light and put themselves on the line raw right then and there and say why they have value, why they deserve a bonus, why they deserve money, value. and you know money can be a metaphor for anything in a relationship. but in this conference we're making it about the money because this is where women really struggle for themselves. so we're going to show women and we're going to show their transformation and show these contestants dukingette out on stage, with their coaches duking it out, too, wanting their contestants to win. the audience will be invested while they are supporting women on stage, they are also going to be bringing home and walking out the door that day with valuable tips and really inspirational pieces of advice that really touch on their instincts.
