BBC News Do you deserve what you get paid?

"Do you deserve what you get paid?"

When I was asked this by the BBC reporter Alex Morrison I felt a little uneasy answering it.  However, when I thought about the long hours, sleepless nights and the children's plays and school sports days I had missed I began to realise I did deserve my income.  Not only that, after 14 years ( I've been with Avon since 2002) I have had the privileged to help turn around many peoples lives.  I have been able to encourage, motivate and teach others that they can do ANYTHING they set their minds too.  Not only becoming a success in Avon, but other things in their lives too.

Be kind work hard

Since joining Avon in 2002 I have not only built a very successful business with Avon I have become an award winning author and have shared my story and knowledge with thousands of women (and men) in the UK and across the world.  I coach, mentor and train others that want to make things better for themselves and their families.  And I love that I can be a small part in their journey, and that is something money can't buy!

How do people justify earning more than others

So, in answer to the BBC Reporters question, "Yes" I believe I deserve what I get paid.  Because with my pay comes a great responsibility, to be able to touch other peoples lives and help make their dreams become a reality like mine is invaluable.  It has taken years and years of hard work, gut determination and ignoring others that told me I would fail and it wasn't worth it, or my favourite line was.. "Why don't you get a real job?". Well, why would I want to be like the rest of the population that literally HATE their jobs, hate getting up in the mornings and are as miserable as sin?.  No thanks, I think I am happier staying in a job I love and deserve what I get paid in.  Changing other peoples lives is an amazing feeling and you certainly cannot put a price on that!
