Why Value Exchange Is The Key To Your Success?
Today I want to talk about something that everyone has been saying - including me but learn from real experts and having thought about it carefully, I am having second thoughts.
Most people don't like to work for bosses. They think that by working for bosses, they are underpaid and making their bosses richer instead of themselves.
Including myself when I got started in entrepreneurship in 1999 way before internet marketing.
Yet when they become bosses and start to outsource most of their work, they ironically become EXACTLY like their bosses in the way they treated their staff.
Whether they are people they meet face-to-face or interact virtually.
Do you see and understand what I mean?
From the employee's perspective, their job is just to come to office at 8/9am, have lunch at 12/1pm and then continue working until 5/6pm before going home.
And then waking up to do the same thing over again.
From the boss's perspective, his job is to make sure that his staff do the work as he requires them to. Not just from his standpoint of view but from the CUSTOMERS' standpoint of view.
Here is something you may like to know which most entrepreneurs NEVER told you never mind if they do business on-and-offline.
Except first Eben Pagan and then my compatriot Sant Qiu who is also very successful in marketing.
How much your boss pays you is determined NOT by what you think.
By what he and his customers see you worth as.
Quite simply, if you perform what he requires you to which in turn impresses the customer that will get him or her to continue doing business, do you think your boss will pay you more, hire you longer and even promote you?
Most people think they are entitled to higher pay - especially basic pay just because they have high qualifications.
This is what our parents, teachers and friends conditioned us to think which unfortunately is NOT what most bosses have in mind when it comes to hiring people.
But let me tell you.
Paper qualifications without giving any value is as good as not having any.
However good you are academically, you will be running round and round in circles and still not be able to settle down at a job and even pay your bills regularly without money worries.
Likewise if you are an entrepreneur and only want business without taking the time and initiative to connect and understand people, you will also be running around in circles like i did in 1999-2009.
The key words here are 2.
Meaning you want to benefit, other people also want to benefit.
So the key question is how do you create a scenario in which you and the people that matters to you benefit?
This is not just a key question.
But a million dollar question.
Here is an interview of Eben Pagan by Joe Polish to justify what I have said.
