Vicki Irvin-A 3% Raise??-Maryland Real Estate Investing
I have to make this quick because I have some appointments this morning, but I didnâ€™t want to leave without providing with what I hope is some inspiration.
I am starting to get known as the person who teaches people how to â€œfire their boss.â€� People think that it is so funny that I say that and while I do say it all in fun, in fact it is a reality. I get emails every day from people who walk around their jobs on eggshells thinking they will be fired any minute due to the latest rumor mill. Or perhaps they just donâ€™t see eye to eye with their boss and they just know that any little thing they do will be scrutinized and held against them. Itâ€™s not a good feeling to wake up in the morning with that horrible nagging feeling in your stomach. You know that feeling of dread that you have to commute for hours only to arrive in a place that just doesnâ€™t make you smile anymore. For those of you who are fortunate enough to love what you do, you are super lucky. Not everyone is able to work in a field that affords them the financial freedom they need as well as the job satisfaction that comes from thoroughly loving your profession. Itâ€™s just plain old hard working for someone else, especially when you try hard to do a great job and are often not appreciated or recognized with as much as a thank you, not to mention that whopping 3% raise you get each year!! And yes, I am Mrs. Human Resources so I know the average company raises! LOL
But isnâ€™t it weird to work hard all year, make the company you work for some major money and then get rewarded with a 3% raise, or maybe 5% if you did an outstanding job according to your annual review form. Letâ€™s do the math real quickâ€¦. A 5% raise based on a $50,000 per year salary equates to $2,500!! So now after 365 days, you have gone from $50,000 to $52,500. And when you break that $2,500 down per pay period which for most people is twice per month, you are now bringing in $104 more per pay check!! Do you even notice that money? I never did!! All that $104 can really do is cover the increase in gas prices or Metro fare rates!! So where does it get you except stuck in a cycle! All of these harsh realities have been the things to prompt me to find another way to secure my financial future. You do the math and let me know if my analysis is far off.Â An this is why I am on a mission to help people to “FIRE THEIR BOSS.”
