February 9, 2016The Greed Trap
Your career is influenced by a whole list of factors. Think of yourself as a product in a marketplace. Because ... you are.
We have a saying in the property rental business. It's called "Greed Trap." Sometimes, by being greedy, you actually attract LESS in the end than if you had NOT been greedy in the first place. Some might call it Karma, some might call it stupidity. But it is a thing; the universe has a quick fix for it, and it's valuable to know how this law works as it relates to your dealings with others and your career. It's an age-old, supply-and-demand lesson that everyone selling anything (including themselves or their services) has seen up close.

We deal with owners of vacation properties every day. Let's take a beach vacation condo as an example. It might be worth $2,000 a week in the peak summer months like July. That's what vacationers are willing to pay. That's what the market dictates. Nothing can change that; the market is the market ...- it is worth what it is worth, and while an owner may be able to price it slightly higher around the edges, it's worth exactly what the market is willing to pay, and nothing more.
