For reasons too early to disclose I’m strongly considering hiring a salary negotiaton coach.
The best part is that the price isn’t part of the consideration. Only value.
5 years ago Swiz could never imagine this. Money unlocks doors y’all
This is one of those things I mention in passing sometimes: Money is nice.
Don’t let [rich] people convince you otherwise out of some sense of propriety
Maybe you think I'm joking, money can't buy happiness and all that bullshit.
You can totally use money to buy happiness. And I'm not talking about instagram vacations and fancy cars, I'm talking real happiness. Fundamentals.
Money is freedom.
Money gives you the freedom to say No. Boss pissing you off? Job getting on your nerves? Code used against your morals? Leave.
But you can't if you're paycheck-to-paycheck and in debt.
Money buys time.
Move closer to work, leverage freedom to work from home, pay people to fold your laundry. Anything you don't feel like doing, money can get it done for you.
How much friends & family time would you gain each day?
Money solves problems.
Car broke down? Forgot favorite jacket on the plane? Phone fell down the drain? Just buy a new one.
If you have a problem and money to solve it, you ain't got a problem.
Money opens doors.
Sometimes having more money opens up your adjacent possible to things you never considered possible. Opportunities show up that didn't exist before.
The craziest part about money that blows my mind is that when you have enough of it, you don't even have to use it anymore. Financial institutions will give you free-ish money just because you already have money.
You can get liquidity without using any of your own money 🤯
At this moment I would like to thank mr. @_pretzelhands for coining the phrase "but money is nice" 🙏🏻
