The 8 best jobs in America share this skill

They all earn an average of $100,000+/year because they all require a certain skill.
Glassdoor recently came out with a list of the 25 Best Jobs in America for 2017.
Eleven of the jobs make an average of over $100K/year. Out of those eleven, eight of them all have the word "manager" in their title. But, it's not the "traditional" manager quality we think of.
Solution Provider = More Money
What I notice about these eight particular $100K jobs is the management aspect requires them to be in charge of creating and delivering a solution. It's not about managing staff, it's about delivering specific results to the bottom line. Take a look:

Tax Manager
Engagement Manager
Product Manager
Analytics Manager
Software Development Manager
Product Development Manager
Finance Manager
Strategy Manager
All the jobs above directly save or make a company money. The person doing the job has the ability to know if they are adding value to the organization. Which means, when they do their job well, they have the ability to demand more in return (i.e. justify raises, bonuses, flex schedule, etc.)
Want A Better Job? Create More Quantifiable Value
For those of you looking for a better job, the lesson is this: you're a business-of-one selling your services to an employer. If you want to earn more, you must validate and provide clear evidence to support how you will save or make the company enough money to justify employing you at your desired pay level. It's not up to them, it's up to you. This is particularly true when interviewing for a job. If you don't know how to present your abilities properly, you won't get the job offer.
In today's competitive job market, you not only need to provide solutions for employers, you need to effectively market your expertise and showcase the value of those solutions too. Every business, especially a business-of-one, needs a good marketing strategy to stay in business!
