3 Strategies to Make More Money
If you will make more money FOR your employer or customer, then you will make more money FROM your employer or customer. There are three strategies to make-more-money success: Be an Expert, Be in Management, Be in Sales.
Become "The Expert"
Let's start with advice from the rich and famous. "Do you see a man skilled in his work? He will serve before kings; he will not serve before obscure men." wrote King Solomon - most probably the richest man who ever walked the planet (adjusted for inflation of course).
The more you learn, the more you earn. The deeper your knowledge, the higher your income. Become "The Expert" in something people want and need by finding, joining, learning and connecting in the professional or trade association of your choice.
Be an Expert at one thing, and you can move from good to great! Invest the time to discover how God has wired you. Do what you do best and like most that other people want. Is it a particular craft? Maybe the ability to sell a particular product to a specific market? Or, perhaps manage and lead in a certain industry or situation?
Be in Management
It's one thing to do a job well. It's a whole 'nother ballgame to manage others to do their jobs well. That's why good managers earn good money. To learn how to earn your way into management, start with your employer and the American Management Association.
Be a Leader in Management. It's one thing to be in management - planning, organizing, directing and controlling. But it is yet another to become a person others will follow. You can learn the seven qualities of leadership that will help you become a leader in management.
Be in Sales
It has been said "nothing happens in business until somebody sells something." And that's why sales people can make more money. In most cases, the more you sell, the more you make. You can learn how!
Be in Sales - no matter what your job. Whether you are Master of a craft, Manager of a company or Minister of a church, think of yourself as being in Sales. The more you can sell your ideas, the more you contribute. And the more you can contribute, the more others can contribute to you.
