How would you like to make more money? I did a presentation a few months ago on the three reasons why some people make less money than their peers. The attendees shared some incredible stories of how they found out co-workers were making more money than them. The best was a story of an employee who was supposed to hire someone beneath them. When they asked their boss what the salary range was for the job, the boss quoted a range HIGHER than what the employee was currently making. Yikes! That must have been an uncomfortable moment, huh? The fact is, there are really only three skills we need to make more money. They are:
- Ability to negotiate more pay.
- Know how to market our brand effectively and consistently.
- Believe we deserve it.
