The time to be a highly paid entrepreneur has never been better. You are an expert at what you do. Yet, that doesn’t mean you’re highly paid. In fact most experts are broke. Your ability to reach millions using the internet, social media, live video feeds and inexpensive marketing has created an opportunity you can take to the bank. Highly paid entrepreneurs use the correct message to attract high paying clients.
What is a Highly Paid Entrepreneur?
Many online entrepreneurs throw their earnings around, somehow believing it will attract more ideal clients to them. I guess the thinking is; “If I show what I earn they’ll become clients.” Nothing is further from the truth. It’s not how you attract your ideal clients. Anyway, this post isn’t about that.
How would you quantify “Highly Paid”? Surely it differs from what I’ll say or even your best friend will say. To you it might be making 6-figures a year, to Mary it might be earning 7-figures and Susan, well, she’ll feel very highly paid if she could earn $5,000 per month.
I did some digging and I’ll share the results in a minute. However, there is something else. To qualify being a “Highly Paid Entrepreneur”, I think, is far more important.
Because you see, for us, it’s NOT JUST ABOUT THE MONEY. Perhaps it isn’t for you either and that’s what I’ll be talking about in the next few minutes. I’ll talk about being highly paid, living a crazy good life and being happy.
That my friend is what we believe. That’s what Chilled Living is all about.
The Results Shocked Me!
When I started digging into this “Highly Paid Entrepreneur” concept I was literally shocked by what I found. So, clear your mind and let’s go into this with our eyes wide open.
Did you know, the average earnings in the US is $4,665 per month? According to this data they came in 10th. And here I thought my American friends are living in the land of milk and honey… oh yes, and the Mexican Wall… :-) https://www.worlddata.info/average-income.php
The UK, coming in at #20, has an average monthly income of $3,616. Once again, not that much right?
Monaco tops the list with $15,559. Now we’re talking a live-able wage. The kind of income you can live nicely on.
However, there are many factors that influence these calculations as this BBC News article clearly states, so don’t get too carried away by all this data. http://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-17512040
Let’s rather focus on what you want.
Fox business reported, “more than half of small business owners pay themselves a regular salary, they are receiving an average salary of $68,000 annually, down from $72,000 a year ago. In addition, nearly 15 percent of small business owners need to work a second job while running their business in order to make ends meet.” http://www.foxbusiness.com/features/2013/10/21/and-average-entrepreneur-salary-is.html
I was shocked! Less than $6,000 per month for working 15-hour days, sacrificing and neglecting things that really matter to you. How much living can you really do on $6,000 per month, especially if you have to work two jobs to make ends meet?
I’m pretty sure that’s not your idea of a highly paid entrepreneur. So what is?
It Comes Down To This!
In my world and those of my clients you should earn at least $42,000 per month to even be considered “highly paid.” I’m talking net disposable income. I’m talking, money you have left over after all essentials have been paid. Money to use on enjoying life. And you shouldn’t be working your life away to earn it.
It all comes down to this. How much do you want to earn per month and how many hours do you want to work per week?
You see here’s the thing. We found, money doesn’t make you happy, working endless hours isn’t freedom and sacrificing things that matter isn’t living. If you don’t have the freedom to live the life you truly want then the money doesn’t matter. Yes, it makes things easier but it won’t make you happy.
For us, that’s Myra and I, a Highly Paid Entrepreneur is someone that wants more than money. We want to enjoy our life.
