When it comes to jobs and the economy, there is a lot of misinformation out there. We can be confused about what jobs are available and what to expect in the future. In this episode of The Money Show, host and financial expert John Ralston joins me to discuss the best ways to make the best decision about a career.

The problem I have with most of the advice you get about finding a job is that most of it is based on assumptions.

And the general public has no idea what they’re getting into. We’re all afraid of the unknown, so we don’t want to know. But that’s actually a problem because it means we can’t take risks. The only way you can take risks is with knowledge. If you don’t know what you’re doing, you’re not going to be able to take risks.

The only way to find out what your career is worth is to take risks. You will either get it for free or you will spend a lot of time figuring out what youre worth. Of course, you dont want to take risks without knowledge, but if you dont know what youre doing, youre not going to be able to take risks. Thats the only way you can find out what youre worth.

Yes, I know that many people do not take risks. I know that you, my fellow readers, think youre not taking risks; you think youre not getting any compensation for taking risks. I know you think you are not worth much, but I know youre worth much more than that.

There have been many times when I’ve heard you say “I dont get paid for taking risks” and I’ve always felt you are wrong. Its because youre taking risks, youre taking jobs that you dont know if youll end up losing. Youre not taking that for free, youre not in the position to get any money. Youre just paying for the experience youre having. Youre risking your life every day. I know that because I do it.

What makes a job a job is what the person doing it is paid for. If the job is not a risk, then that job is not a risk. You are paying for your time. If you do not need the job, then you shouldnt be a risk. You dont have a choice in the matter.

To be compensated for your time, you are always on the clock. If you are not working for someone else (and you should never be) you should not be on the clock. You are entitled to your time, you do not have to do anything to receive it. Money is simply a tool that is used to get you where you want to go.

There’s a lot of nonsense talked about “not having to do anything to receive it.” And that’s true. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t receive the money. When you are hired, the money is always there. You just have to know how to use it.

I hear this all the time. And I get it. It is a great system. But there is more to it than just the money. You must also have skills. If you have no skills and you are not willing to do whatever it takes to find your own, you dont deserve the money. Theres a lot more to money than just the sum of money.
