The Worst Thing a Boss Ever Told Me?
The worst thing a boss ever told me?
6 months after I started, he flicked an envelope across the table at me…
And he said, “This 2% pay raise represents what you’re now worth to us”.
I’d obeyed every word, jumped through every hoop, taken every piece of advice, and hugely improved my work, for a 2% raise.
That was the exact moment I decided to quit. 3 weeks later, my resignation letter was on his desk.
I haven’t had to work a single day in a job ever since.
If you’re stuck in this zero-appreciation, “job trap”, don’t worry.
There’s still time to fix it. It doesn’t have to be this way.
Even if things seem tough, trust me, there are awesome business models out there and clients who will like you, appreciate you, respect you, and be thrilled to pay you well.
Don’t have the exact skills they’re looking for? You can learn any skill. I’ve seen people learn skills from *scatch* and make $20k/month after a year.
Outside of the job world, it’s possible to make your life truly off-the-charts awesome. Your work quality can determine your pay rate, instead of a boss.
At first, things can seem scary/difficult/confusing… but sink your teeth into entrepreneurship for 6 months, and you’ll be shocked at how far you go.
Do you agree?
