Become the Expert and Bring Home the Benjamins

Sep 18, 2021

What Is YOUR TIME Worth?

Experts get paid what they’re worth because people expect them to know their stuff and deliver. This is why gurus make Benjamins. So how does one become an expert?

You likely already have a skill (or several) that can be turned into salable services. For some who have a formal education and/or years of experience in something, you’re already an expert.

For those who aren’t ready to claim that title just yet, if you laser-focus on those one or two things you already do well and continuously hone your ability, you’ll eventually own that title.

In other words, all you need to do is FOCUS (Follow One Course Until Successful). Find that one service that you are really good at and enjoy doing. By focusing on one service, you become an expert at that service.

Remember, it’s not learning new skills! It’s learning how to use the skills you already have and turn them into a business. Here’s the 1-2-3 approach to getting to expert-status and getting paid for it.

  1. Find that ONE THING that you are good at and enjoy, and start there.

  2. Learn how to price your services.

  3. Manage and account for the time you spend working.

It seems so easy when I put it like that, I know. Truthfully though, FOCUS is only one key to the castle. Grow and Support are the other two. Grow refers to investing in yourself. This pays dividends. Paying yourself first starts with getting paid what you are worth. Once you learn how to earn, life becomes much easier and more fun!

Support means don't go it alone. Surround yourself with a community full of people who have been there, done that, and others who are where you are right now and learning along with you. This improves your chances of success and your quality of life.
