Sit Down, Shut Up and Start Pimping!
When I graduated with my Master's degree in 2010, I couldn't understand why the company I was employed at assumed that a salary of $50,000 per year was sufficient for someone with five plus years of experience working in corporate America. I knew that I was worth more and had a plethora of dreams running in my head related to entrepreneurship. The problem was that I couldn't stick to one idea and was also miserable working a job with no upward mobility.
When I had some quiet time to myself, I realized that what I needed to do was capitalize on my strengths that would allow me to earn more money swiftly. The event planning business I was holding on to was slowly dying as no revenue was being received but I had a special skillset: I was knowledgeable with the CRM application, Salesforce.
As soon as I dedicated time to 'pimp' myself; meaning I polished my resume, applied to jobs and interviewed with different companies, I received a job offer with a pay increase of $20,000 more per year than my current job!
Anything is possible one you sit down, shut up and start pimping!
