Time and Money
I think it’s time to remind everyone that money and time are priorities, not resources. In other words, “I don’t have the budget” or “This isn’t a good time” are specious excuses. There IS time and there IS money, but they are invested elsewhere. Your job is to demonstrate so much value (or have such a strong brand) that it becomes apparent that the money and time should be reallocated to you because you represent a greater return on that investment.
Change your mindset. There IS money and there IS time. The real question is not whether they exist, but who receives them. Make it you.
