I don’t know about you, but when I get a pay raise at work I feel incredible. I get a giant smile across my face because I feel like my hard work has finally been validated. All the extra hours, emails, phone calls, presentations and the unwavering commitment to my company’s success has (literally) paid off.
But it’s not as easy as just showing up to work one day and your boss calling you into his office to say “Hey, you! You’re getting a raise! Let’s party!” If only it were that easy, right?!
We have to work hard, put in the hours and follow the right steps.
I’ve only been working in the corporate world for 15 years so I know I still have a lot to learn. What I do know is what’s worked for me so far. Here are 7 important steps that have taken my career from 5-figures to 6-figures.
The term side hustle has gained a lot of attention lately. This is something outside of your full-time job that gives you more income and potentially more happiness.
To inspire us to think outside of the walls of our 9-5, I’ve invited the host of the Side Hustle Show, Nick Loper, on the show today. Nick and discuss the many benefits associated with a side hustle. Surprisingly, some of the best benefits have nothing to do with money.
One of the best ways to build wealth is through a career with progressive levels of advancement. With consistent salary increases and a high savings rate, you’ll set yourself up for a high future net worth and definite millionaire status.
To demonstrate this type of success, I’ve invited Liz, the Chief Mom Officer, on the show today. Through her 15-year career, she’s been able to increase her salary from $22,000 to the six-figure level by exceeding expectations and going above and beyond for her employer.
Liz works full-time in the Tech Industry for a Fortune 100 company. By having a savers mindset and growing her income steadily, she has helped her family reach millionaire status in her 30’s.
