Would you ever go to your boss and ask for a 74% pay raise? How about a 150% pay raise??

Would you ever go to your boss and ask for a 74% pay raise? How about a 150% pay raise??

If you would then I applaud you because I know for a fact I never would.

In fact I remember hoping I would get a 3% raise at my corporate job and a couple of years I didn’t get any raise when the economy was really bad.

My income was actually reduced at one point (I think in 2008/09) because the economy was terrible. I remember exactly how I felt! Bachelors degree in accounting/mgt and I definitely didn’t have a salary I was proud of, I couldn’t afford to pay my student loans and life was a struggle.

This weekend I received my 1099 for my business and when I opened it I nearly dropped to my knees! I prayed circles around this income but I honestly thought we missed it by a few hundred! It turns out I actually surpassed it by a few hundred. While income is not the main reason I do this, I’m going to be real and say that income is needed and we shouldn’t just be trying to get by in life. That’s how I spent my life for 10 years and it was exhausting and depressing.

When I did the math I realized that I actually gave myself a 74% pay raise in just one year 😱 the most amazing thing is that since I quit my ft job in 2014, I gave myself a 150% pay raise πŸ˜±πŸ™πŸΌ that’s just in 2 years!!!

I am forever grateful for saying yes to this opportunity! I didn’t know what I was doing but my motto is “say yes and figure it out later.” The only way you can actually see if something will work is by taking a chance! It took a lot of hard work to build this business , but it wasn’t any harder than going to college while raising a kid, getting a job that drained me every day and living paycheck to paycheck with bill collectors calling me every day!

Don’t look At someone else and think “well they couldn’t do it so I can’t” because how do you know that you can’t if you don’t try! If I looked at the coaches who quit and thought that this wasn’t possible, I would have robbed myself from this amazing, life changing opportunity. Not everyone is willing to work hard! But everything in life is hard, choose your hard wisely πŸ’• you can be successful even if someone else doing the same thing isn’t. You just have to want it more πŸ’•
