Know Your Worth, Then Add Tax is a popular saying, and a great one at that. Not only does the quote advertise the importance of knowing your worth. But it wants to clarify that you are worth more than you even know.
Knowing your worth is a very personal thing, and it really has nothing to do with anyone else. It’s your internal measure of how you value yourself, REGARDLESS of what other people might think of you or say to you.
This raises the question, how do you know your own worth?
There are many indicators to signify that you know you’re worth it. But today, we will be going over the big ones.
Signs that let you know that you know you’re worth:
