    In your example it means "That's why it's possible for me to charge so much".

    That's the whole conversation, because I still don't understand it.


    - So Sara tells me that you're a consultant, Hitch.
    - Yeah, mostly marketing, little advertising, brand management.
    - I have no idea what that means.
    - No one does. That's why I get to charge so much.

    She says that she doesn't understand exactly what it is that he does as a consultant. He replies that no one understands what he does, and that's why it is possible for him to charge a lot of money for his services.
