Does Your Income Reflect Your Worth?

Roselle/MeHeartAsia Business

People make money because they get paid to solve problems. So, if a problem is easily solved by many people, then the compensation to solve it will definitely be small or less than what you would expect. For example, serving at a restaurant, cleaning houses, making coffee. Although, these jobs are very helpful to those who need it and some people love doing their job no matter how easily they solve the problem. Either way, it doesn't change the fact that you will earn less.

If there's a big problem that most people don't know how to solve, then the person who can solve it will get paid very well. For example, performing a surgery, winning a lawsuit, acquiring new customers, up to investing. Think about this, every business you can think of whether it's B2B, B2C, physical products, or non-profits, they all need customers. Because without customers, they go out of business. Without their business, they can no longer provide for their families. When something means so much to someone, they're willing to pay a lot of money to protect it. And just like what Elon Musk said, "If something is important enough, you do it even if the odds are not in your favor."

So, since there are hundreds of thousands of businesses both starting and failing each year, if someone had the ability to bring customers to those businesses and save them, how much do you think they could charge? Your answer to this question, "Does Your Income Reflect Your Worth?" may depend on your goals in life, and how you understand yourself and how much that job means to you.
