According to Entertainment Weekly (the MOST credible news source😉)
It’s something to the tune of $47 million per year.
What’s really going to bake your noodle…
Is does she deliver $47 million worth of value?
Honestly, probably not. But she asked for it, so she got it.
From what I’ve read (and you never know), she asked the CBS TV President for an increase every 3 years.
And even when he back sent a counter-offer, she wouldn’t even look at it.
Here’s the secret. Judge Judy’s been around for a while and doesn’t fuck around.
Even though she said she doesn’t negotiate, she was really a negotiating master.
The way she got her way, was by saying it’s her way or she was walking.
So what does that have to do with business?
When it comes to meeting with prospects, eventually you have to give a price and stand by it.
And when you’re in front of someone you don’t know, it’s
real easy to fall back…
On discounting yourself. Doing free work. We’ve all done it at some point.
But if you want to get paid what you’re worth. You gotta stand by your price, and be prepared to walk away if you don’t get it.
And I say this because it’s 100% easier said than done…
It’s taken me at least a decade of selling to gain the confidence and self-esteem to even ask for my worth…
And if I don’t get it to move on.
People say you have to practice giving a price, but you really don’t.
You just have to get to a point where you’re tired of “doing the dance.”
This is why Judge Judy earns what she earns.
She‘s old, tired, and filthy rich.
