Want to make more money? Here’s some recurring themes I found when you Google “how to make more money?”
If you are currently working you can ask your employer if you can have a cost of living adjustment. Make sure you come to them with the facts, and the fact now is inflation is at a 40 year high and according to the Bureau of Labor and Statistics the current inflation rate is 6.4%. That’s a lot of money if you think about it. Facts are facts, so present them to your employer.
You can also ask for a raise, but you must also prove your value to your employer. How much money are you saving them or making them? Tell them you are willing to take on additional tasks and or improvement ideas. Most importantly if you have empirical data that shows your worth use it. Data talks and bullsh## walks.
If you are looking for a new job making more money, here are some helpful hints.
Make sure you are looking at your non-taxable benefits, healthcare, dental, vision, retirement match, disability, life insurance, ect. Do not get lured into a new job that promises you 20k more a year and then find out you will have to spend it on, healthcare, retirement, ect. I cannot stress this enough; I’ve seen intelligent people lose big by looking at the hourly wage or annual salary.
With that being said, if you are looking for a new job and already have one, be picky! There’s no hurry, get what you think you are worth.
Want to make fast and quick money? Sign up with your local employment agency, FedEx, UPS or Amazon Hub. You can usually be working in two weeks.
