Want more money at work? Here are 5 tips to make sure your boss says yes

One of the best ways to boost your salary is to ask for a raise. 

But before you do, make sure you’re not setting yourself up for failure. 

If you want to get a raise at work, here’s what the 20% do to help ensure the “yes.” 

Are you actually underpaid? Know your value.

Before asking your boss for more money, spend some time researching salaries for similar positions in your area. 

Pick the right time to talk to your boss.

Timing is everything. You will significantly improve your chances of getting the “yes” if you carefully pick the right opportunity to talk about a salary increase with your boss. 

Focus on your accomplishments

Focus on why you deserve a raise, not why you need a raise. You might be surprised at some of the things my staff would tell me that had nothing to do with their accomplishments at work.
