Aren’t we all striving to be overpaid for what we do? – Will Ferrell
Do you begrudge a colleague for being overpaid? Are you afraid to ask for more for fear of seeming greedy?
It’s better for everyone when you are paid for your value. You don’t get resentful at doing the work, and your employer or client keeps you happy and continues to get their great results. And because most people are shy about asking, you typically should stretch and ask for more.
Be prepared to promote yourself and negotiate.
