“Get paid what you’re worth.” 🤢🤢🤢 It’s absolute non-sense.

You don’t get paid what you’re worth.

You can get paid what your help/work can bring to the table. You get paid for what others feel you’re helping create.

Value lies on the eyes of the beholder.

It doesn’t matter what YOU think

If you think you’re worth 10k, but don’t create way more than 10k, how much you think “you’re worth” is irrelevant. Your client/employer won’t care.

If they don’t see the value of what you can bring, you can always walk away. You won’t turn them into think that they’re to pay you more when they don’t see it.

Don’t go into convince mode. If they’re a bad fit, so be it. Look and create the ones who are great fits.

It’s ok. You’re not for everybody.
