Self Worth ------> NET WORTH

Self Worth ------> NET WORTH


I love looking in my FB memories. It reminds me that within my constant changes of appearance and innate moodiness, I'm pretty consistent. Who'da thunk it?



This gem came up from a few years back, and it gave me a 'yup yup yup' moment. I can't remember who said it. Earl Nightingale?


Nothing is truer.


One of the regulars (Richard Weeks, I believe ) says "You don't get what you deserve; you get WHAT YOU NEGOTIATE"


And we can't crush it there without trusting in our VALUE.


The supermodel Linda Evangelista once said "I don't even get out of bed for less than $10,000."  Not everyone loved that, but I sure did!


If you trust in yourself enough that you are willing to walk away from commissionectomies, you will find that you encounter fewer individuals who want to perform them on you.


So while other agents scramble and race to the bottom in fee-slicing land, if you can trust and KNOW (this is energetic, you need to freakin KNOW it) that you CAN get the fee that you ARE WORTH for doing the job you do and being WHO YOU ARE . . .

You'll be 'discounter-proof'.


Raise your standards. Raise your self esteem.

Raise your fees.

You're worth it.

Well said!  And when you want quality your have to pay for it. Those who are committed to the best do not let price rule over quality.  A

Hi Candice - I like what you said, including the closing, "Raise your standards. Raise your self esteem.

Raise your fees.

You're worth it.

Absolutely true. Neither of us mind paying more for quality - at this stage of life it's all about quality. If we eat out, we want it to be superb. If we buy something new, we want it to be a true treasure, not an impulse.  You get the idea...and while we do discount ( not a heck of a lot) for repeat clients and double deals, I concur with your summary.  We charge this because we are worth it! If you don't want to pay that, just walk away Renee.

The older I get, the easier it is to say (thanks, Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD, for the "age" reminder) Just walk away, Renee. The Snark in me has been known to say, "I'll cut my commission if you'll agree to go to work for the next month and take one third of your salary." There's never been another argument.

What a great quote by Linda Evangelista. Can't say I'd heard of her before but I sure like that one.

Self worth is a hell of a lot more important than so many people think. There’s just no doubt about it.
