How To Get What You're Worth Online

Instead, I think these arerepparttar useful questions:

a) If you includerepparttar 117987 time it takes to set up and mess withrepparttar 117988 computer, will it actually speed up your work enough to save you time? If so, how much time per day, per week, per month, or per year? (For this question, you do have to decide whatrepparttar 117989 relevant time period is -- "per day," "per week," "per month," or "per year.") b) Multiplyrepparttar 117990 number of hours you just came up with by your hourly worth. Now you know how muchrepparttar 117991 computer is worth to you. So just compare how muchrepparttar 117992 computer is worth (to you) torepparttar 117993 actual selling price ofrepparttar 117994 computer.

Please don't say, "Well, sure, *you* can afford it!" I'm telling yourepparttar 117995 kind of decision-making that got me to where I can afford it ... more than once.

And I'm not trying to get you to buy a computer. That's notrepparttar 117996 point at all.

Applyrepparttar 117997 same process to online marketing. For example "Isrepparttar 117998 *net* profit from advertising with XYZ more or less than my hourly worth forrepparttar 117999 time I spend creating and placing that advertising?" Ifrepparttar 118000 answer is "yes," then do it even if you think you can't afford it. Ifrepparttar 118001 answer is "no," then don't do it even if you do make net profit.

One last example:

It takes you an hour to clean something. A maid does it in an hour --or less!-- and better. Yetrepparttar 118002 maid only charges [whatever] per hour, while you hourly worth is [such and such]. The maid *will* be less. Now, spend that hour earning more thanrepparttar 118003 maid charges!

Which reminds me ...

Step Two.

I suggest you limitrepparttar 118004 number of categories you personally participate in to two: a) things you do to make money; and b) sleep, recreation, and things you enjoy, that make your life worth living.

(Ideally, "things you do to make money" should fall under "things you enjoy.")

Get rid of everything else!
