#231: 10 Characteristics of Every Value-Driven Professional

por BusinessMadeSimple.com

There are specific qualities that highest paid people possess. I don’t mean integrity or honesty or kindness — those are characteristics you have to have in order to be a decent human. I’m talking about tangible character traits that make you a value-driven professional. Traits like understanding how to receive feedback, de-escalating drama and prioritizing your highest return opportunities. There’s a reason the highest paid people are where they are — and I want to teach you why.

 

If you develop these characteristics, you become seen as a valuable “product” that organizations will want to invest in. Not too dissimilar from a good stock, you become the type of employee who gives your organization a great return. And when you give an organization a great return, they’re more likely to pay you more. A lot more.

 

In this week’s episode I’ll explain the 10 characteristics of every value-driven professional and how you can develop them. When you embody these traits, you’ll increase your economic value on the open market and your career will soar.

Elida Field could have easily fallen into the same trap, but her focus and determination propelled her into a profitable career she loves. In this week’s episode, she’ll share her process for how she defeated the “starving artist” phase and built a profitable career as an artist.
