If money knew who owned it, Mother Teresa would have been rich and all the rest of us good people would be a lot richer than we are. Money isn’t a way of keeping score. It isn’t your mother or your father. It isn’t a validation of your existence. It’s a tool. And it’s payment for services rendered. If you think you’re not getting paid what you’re worth, raise your rates. The marketplace will give you an answer every time. Do you even know what the market thinks you’re worth? If you don’t know the answer, when was the last time you raised your rates?
