Put a dollar value on your time
"I put an hourly value on my time. In my case, one hour of my time should, on average, generate $350 in gross profit. From that number, I can calculate what the added value of my work to the company should be in a day, week, month or year. It helps me make decisions to delegate a particular task. And it helps me to make hiring decisions when the new hire will replace some tasks that I am presently doing.”

— John Dini, San Antonio
