Know Your Worth

Know Your Worth

So folks this will probably be a two-part blog.

At my day job I am in an interim position and I was also in a leadership program. A special task within my leadership program was to assume a role that is also interim, that in theory fast-tracks you for management.

Now 5 Weeks Later I interviewed for the newer position, I have done everything they asked, and now have been denied it.

It is interesting because I also have the chance to Simply reapply but not interview to get a secondary spot for the same position.

I am currently mulling over going back to my original no management, no perks position. Why you ask?

Because in my heart I am not a second-place candidate. And I think the strongest messagr I can send to my employer, myself, and my son is that I have to control my destiny and never settle for less. Having discussed it with my spouse who is in agreement I am mildly conflicted but leaning towards going back to my original position. I will maintain my pay. Despite my work and these multiple sort of promotion/semi- promotions I have never had a raise.

Now this is customary where I work, that doesn’t mean I have to accept it either. To be continued…

Follow up to the previous infographic on your freelance hourly rates

14 Jul

I wanted to let you know that setting a higher freelance fee is better than setting a low one.

First you need to recognize your worth and all you you bring to the table- every single transaction.

Second you need to know that you can start at hundred and drop to 50, but you can’t start at 50 and go to 100.

Remember settimg a low bar for your pricing aka your worth may work as an opener but if you undervalue yourself how can you expect others to value you?
