Make Peace with Your Earnings
I've often seen people chase after money even when they are doing quite well. As an HR person and a
recruiter, I often look at candidates and employees with 360 degree point of view. Where are they on their

Employers hire people every day. When interviewed, they're looking to see how hungry you are. Not
enough money can make anyone's life miserable, so clearly each job seeker will want a certain standard
of living. Once you've obtained a degree of comfort or satisfaction, make peace with your earnings.

Nobody wants to overpay for anything-that includes wages and salaries. Most people will pay what is
considered fair, but only begrudgingly. This is especially true in a poor economy like we have today.
An independent survey of over 500 Americans in December 2009 revealed that 95
percent of American consumers said they feel a sense of trust and gratitude towards
veterans. And 70% said they’d be more likely to buy from a veteran-owned business
than from a business not owned by a veteran!
