Close Pay and Opportunity Gaps
Hi, I’m Adriana. 👋🏼
I get it. I overcame being underpaid.
When I started my first job post college I was underpaid by tens of thousands of dollars. I didn’t even know I could negotiate a job offer let alone the process to ask for a raise because I was underpaid.
Rather than formulate my compensation based on my education, achievements, and proven track record of success I’ve had employers, mentors, advisors, and investors try to underpay and undervalue me based on a perception of my value as a feminine first-gen Mexican American Latina.
I had to learn on my own how to overcome direct and unconscious bias about Latinas (such as the ideas that we only perform essential jobs such as a nanny or housekeeper, that we are best suited for support roles, and that we are too spicy or emotional to lead others). Through my experiences I’ve built processes to reframe biased mental models about who a Latina is and what she is worth.
My professional experiences have shown me that things I was taught by my abuelitas, mom, and tías such as “hard work will be recognized and rewarded” doesn’t mean I’ll be paid equitably for my hard work, unless I speak up. Early in my career many people took advantage of my work ethic. Today people still try to take advantage.
The tools and tactics within PayDestiny are established from what has worked for me to help others recognize my market value and successfully negotiate base pay, equity, job titles, benefits, job perks, remote work, flexible work hours, promotions, promotion pay, pay raises, term sheets, multi-million dollar SaaS deals, and more.
It’s my personal mission to help nuestra gente get paid top dollar based on skills, experience, and achievements, to get promoted, and to establish work/life balance.
If you’re interested in finding out if you’re being paid equitably based on what the market is paying and what your company is paying others sign up for PayDestiny’s FREE ‘7 Day Pay Raise Boot Camp’ today.

They don’t take anything for granted. They honor the sacrifices of the people who came before them by making sure they get the most value out of everything they do. They use their success to fill their life, and the lives of the people they love, with abundance.

Today, if you wanted to hire a salary negotiation coach to help you overcome being underpaid they would conduct an initial assessment by asking a list of questions, then they would use the information to research what the market is paying for your job and for someone with your skills and experience, they would generate and provide you a report, meet with you about the details of their report to share what you should ask for, suggest strategies, and share salary negotiation templates, and maybe run through a mock pay raise meeting or negotiation.
These services would either cost you an upfront retainer fee of hundreds of dollars and a 7% – 30% fee of what you negotiate (i.e. thousands of dollars you deserve and shouldn’t have to part with), a per hour consultancy fee of hundreds of dollars, or 7% – 30% of the pay raise you successfully ask for (resulting in losing thousands of dollars you fought to put in your bank account).

Is PayDestiny founded by a Latine professional?
Yes, PayDestiny was founded and built by Adriana Herrera, a Mexican American Latina who started her career not even knowing she could negotiate her salary. There were many aspects of growing up a first-gen college graduate that contributed to her not knowing she could negotiate salary.
Over the course of her career as an employee and startup operator she experienced being underpaid and trusted individuals attempting to underpay her based on gender and race.
She overcame this by teaching herself how to successfully negotiate everything she could: base pay, equity, job titles, benefits, job perks, remote work, flexible work hours, promotions, promotion pay, pay raises, term sheets, multi-million dollar SaaS deals, and more.
As the Co-founder and CEO of investor backed startups she overcame challenges setting equitable employee compensation matrices. Her challenges were the result of pressure from investors to pay employees as little base pay as possible and compensate employees with stock options. She had to educate investors that subjective pay scales lead to preventable, and expensive, employee turnover.
PayDestiny is authentically and intentionally designed to close the wage gaps and maximize the income of Latina/Latino/Latine professionals, and other underestimated employees.
How is PayDestiny free?
PayDestiny can be used for free by anyone who wants to understand if they are underpaid, their value in the market, what to ask for, and who wants to set compensation goals.
We believe in compassionate pricing. Compassionate pricing is a term we use to describe our process of intentionally setting a commercial retail price below market rates so that the product is available to any socioeconomic group.
PayDestiny believes every person with the desire, passion, work ethic, and persistence to achieve their goals should have the same access to tools to do so.
PayDestiny is opposed to the creation of manufactured financial barriers. An example of a manufactured financial barrier is charging underestimated and underpaid individuals an expensive hourly fee, retainer, and/or a percentage of what is negotiated.
Excessive prices create an unlevel playing field where one must be financially privileged to access tools that can significantly increase their pay.
Charging a success fee in the form of a percentage of what is negotiated takes away from pay empowerment and contributes to the wage gap.
We put people before profit. PayDestiny works to close wage gaps and level the playing field by intentionally offering services everyone else charges for for free and making sure they are of the highest caliber.
We make money by coaching underpaid professionals in good standing at work to successfully close wage gaps. Think of us like a personal trainer. If there is no pay raise, we issue a refund. That’s how confident we are in our work.
What industry and career stage is PayDestiny built for?
PayDestiny can be used by Latina, Latino, and Latine professionals in any industry. However, PayDestiny is best for professionals whose total rewards packages consist of variables such as:
- A sign on bonus
- Career advancement opportunities (e.g. learning and development)
- Equity/profit-share/stock options
- Job perks
- Merit bonuses/bonus schedule
- Opportunities for meaningful recognition and advancement (i.e. clearly defined metrics that demonstrate success and a defined process to trigger promotions)
- Other income impacting variables
- Other variables that increase happiness at work and ability to be successful
- Possible better job title opportunities
- Salaried base pay
Whether you’re someone who has just started their career and wants to ensure you’re not leaving money on the table or you’re mid-career and want to get paid what you deserve, PayDestiny can help you build the skills and confidence you need to get paid what you’re worth!
PayDestiny can help any person that wants to build their skills and confidence to successfully negotiate a job offer.
