"I've never tried this, but someone once told me that you should always ask for higher pay when the employer makes an actual offer. Something along the lines of, "Actually, I feel that based on my skills and experience I should be making…"

I try to take time each week to welcome new members to 48Days.Net. So, let me say "welcome" to you! I know you will find this to be a great site filled with people who are experiencing true success in both life and work.
One thing I noticed on your profile is you have read Dan's book. It will help you find the work you love.
Also, I'd like to point out that one of the best places to connect with other liked-minded people here is in the GROUPS section. There are groups for just about every interest you can think of, and if you can't find a group that interests you, you can start one. Groups are my favorite part of 48Days.Net!
Finally, if you happen to be a speaker or author (or want to become either), check out these two groups. They are two of the most popular groups on the site because of all the great conversation taking place:
Albert, just wanted to drop in and welcome you to this great community! As you’ll come to find, this is a place of inspiration, encouragement and tons of knowledge. I hope you find that and more as you pursue your endeavors.
A few groups I want to recommend are:
Kent Julian’s: Speak it Forward -- REAL Success and Profit for Speakers! Write it Forward -- REAL Success and Profit for Writers!
This is a great place to meet great folks and share interesting ideas about finding meaningful work.
I've been a member here for about 1 year and have gotten a lot of value from it. Hope you receive the same value.
If I can help you in your pursuit of meaningful work in any way, please let me know. I'd like to offer you a free gift if you subscribe to our 'Pursuing Meaningful Work' newsletter. I'll give you a free copy of our recent audiobook 'Finding Your True North - A Quickstart Guide to finding a Career You'll Love'.
Hope you enjoy the community and find value in it.
