How to reveal a new dimension for compromise
This was very well thought out. Thankfully, the company was amenable to the suggestion. I used to micromanage my budget like this. It's an absolute necessity when raises are non-existent or not keeping pace with rising costs.
Great reframing Jon! This is lateral thinking, I would never thought this approach with yield the same benefits. Great lesson to draw that there's always another way!
This is such a helpful reframe and one I want to adopt! There’s a certain point where more money (though nice) isn’t necessarily the solution we actually want. And I like the creative way you found more money without actually needing a raise. Particularly helpful to keep in mind in the current job market!
