6. “You don’t get paid for the hour. You get paid for the value you bring to the hour.”
This Jim Rohn quote has been game-changing for me. I was fortunate enough to hear Rohn speak for the first time at a live event in Atlanta during my early twenties. I was a young, budding real estate professional who wanted to strike it rich but didn’t quite know how.
This quote continues to be a reminder that success is always a reflection of the value you provide. Ultimately, you don’t get paid for the hour or the job or the project or the deal. You get paid for the value you bring. If you want to earn more money or you want your company to make more money — heck, if you want almost anything — all you have to do is provide enough value to get it! — Shaun Rawls, lifelong entrepreneur, founder, and CEO of Rawls Consulting
