The short answer to increasing your earning potential is to provide more value to your employer.

The right lens for thinking about increases in pay is value. How can I provide more value to the company? If you do (and if your employer is fair) you should be able to increase your earning potential.

What (likely) won't get you more money? Having your doctorate, getting a new certification (WCS, OCS, PRPC, CSCS, etc.), or asking because of personal reasons for more.

Instead, there really are three options:

  1. Expand Your Hours. Probably not what you wanted to hear, but the simplest way to make more is to work more hours. Especially if you're at a busy facility or you're working less than 40 hours per week, expanding your hours can result in more pay.

  2. Crush Your Role. Getting better within your role (at what your boss or facility cares about) can result in a raise. So if that's productivity or increased billings in an insurance-based practice, selling products or packages, or patient retention and outcomes. But understanding what it means to be successful in your role is crucial.

  3. Increase Your Role. The trickiest option, increasing your role involves finding something else you can do to add value to the company.
