A lot of people are very skilled at their job. This does not often correlate with being highly paid for their work! A lot of people with low skill level are making more money with that skill than the higher skilled people. The ability to turn a skill into something that can make money is a skill in itself (the skill of monetisation), and without it a skilled person will be eternally underpaid. With it, a person can make money with a low skill level in that area. Do you agree? Disagree? Why? And what are the consequences of this? If you agree, is the solution to teach people the skill of monetising? Or is it to match the monetisers up with the skilled individuals so they can make money together? Would economy benefit from widespread effective monetisation by skilled individuals? Would it be the opposite? Let me know your thoughts!

I see your point: in the private sector it often goes this way, that skilled people are less paid than others. Also in terms of diversity many companies unfortunately didn't understand that people with impairments do have skills: according to my experience - I have a reduced mobility- companies are not interested in hiring people claiming that they're overqualified instead.

you bring up a great wider point which is the ability of employers to recognise skill and compensate it appropriately. This applies to undervaluing women, people of colour, those with minor or major disabilities, even down to height! This is supported by myriad studies on race, sex and disability. This is (usually non-deliberate) discrimination, and it costs employers skilled workers and costs workers the job/ pay they deserve. This is the other side of the coin to employers undervaluing skilled individuals that fail to market themselves well, and overvaluing less skilled people that market themselves better. Do you think the solution is to educate people on self marketing so they can gain better compensation from their employer for the same skill? Or is it to educate companies so they compensate skill over style? Let me know your thoughts!

I would educate companies: if a person with impairments can show that he/she can do the job perfectly fine coz the skills are there, it would take so little for companies to integrate them, for example by giving them the right tools in order to carry out the job in the right way and by taking care of the employees needs. Unfortunately, many companies don't want to invest their time and financial means to make the job environment more comfortable for people with impairments, that's why it's easier not to hire them..

At times people are desperate looking for job and that's were company is taking advantage of you, in HR, there should be a appraisal program or promotions should an employee has taken additional skill sets to benefit the company or department. We as employees also can check our values in Glassdoor website, we also should not put our last drawn salary in Resume or C.V, it should be base on market and years of experience you bring to the market. Being handicapped is not an obstacle, as company only cares, whether you can perform the job or not, or base on recommendations. You think what you becomes. Don't stay in a company too long, if you find the increments is low, 2 years the most, I have wasted 5 years in a company, just to receive a $50 increase. 🤑. Each jump should be better then before, and related to your job description, if not you'll be offered the same $, and job as your previous company. Remember to always upgrade your skill, by taking part-time classes, as we can be replaced, if company finds us, obsolete in times company is not making profit.

As with any skill, the skill of building a business relies on talent, experience, knowledge/data, and good systems in place to push you to implement. Over the next few weeks I’ll go over some past and present businesses I have made/ helped make, use them as case studies, and outline what steps we took to 1) identify the aspect of the business that people would pay for 2) worked out a way to maximise that aspect 3) continually innovated to make the business provide a greater income for lower costs The coinciding lessons of each case study, I predict, will be 1 taking action consistently is the key step that separates a failure from success 2 providing more VALUE to the customer is the foolproof way to increase income, not to fool them into spending more than they should 3 identifying the best method to get a customer’s attention and once you have that attention, to effectively show them the potential benefit to them of using the business is the way all marketing works Also I’ll be putting in a photo of myself with each post since that seems to be what people do on Qoorio, it isn’t relevant to the post its just a picture of my face

People prioritise what’s important to them. If you’re doing a joint venture with someone who continually can’t meet to work but can meet you to go socialising (happened to me last week) then they don’t want to do the venture even if they think they do If somebody can’t work with you on a joint venture but has the time to go on social media (happened to me yesterday) then they don’t want to do the venture even if they think they do Or at least, they do not understand that they must prioritise working if they want to succeed In my experience you can try to convince people to care more about putting the time in (something I’ve only successfully done twice by getting across exactly what the benefits to them are so they started self-motivating) or you can realise they aren’t as invested as you and do the venture yourself/ find somebody else with their skillset This is a common problem in ventures with no money invested, just 2+ people putting work into something that will grow, in my experience. And something you just have to accept as part of human nature!

Mantas Mažūna on How to build succesful business from scratch?Partnerships & InnovationsSome time ago
The paradox in corporate management. I recently discussed with a few top managers in leading IT players about talents and business growth that they can bring. So what do they want? They want to attract top talents to their companies to build innovative business models and enter new industries to ensure at least double-digit growth. How do they want to get it done? Easily and securely. Not to cause problems to the current CxO management layer, to fit one's talent into a tiny corporate square and not to cause damage to existing procedures and methods. Is it real? No. It is not real for sure. You cannot grow & innovate and at the same time, protect current inefficiencies. You cannot protect the mistakes that are hidden in the methods of current operations. In order to grow -- you need to change. So stop wasting talent for the objectives that you genuinely do not want to achieve. Or rethink the way your today’s organization work.
