Why Price Does Not Always Reflect Value

Are you an entrepreneur, coach, or consultant that struggles with pricing your products or services? Maybe, you’re an employee that has had difficulty negotiating a raise. If you wear any of these hats, this is the show for you!

This episode of the Rutledge Perspective is packed full of tangible information that will help you navigate through compensation negotiations with the upmost clarity. There’s a misconception that we are to be compensated based upon our worth. The truth is that we demand a certain compensation based off the value that we bring & deliver to our organization or clients.

Once we understand this concept, we will be able to remove emotions from compensation discussions and tell a clear story of the value that we bring, and the price attached to that value!

Takeaways 📝

🔑 Your base salary is not indicative of your value.
🔑 Eliminate the external response to money tied to value.
🔑 No one can pay you what you’re worth because you are priceless because you exist.

Homework 📚

Evaluate the value that you are bringing to your work, your business, or your specific department. What is the price attached to the value that you bring?
