If you have a job you love, I’m sure it doesn’t come without some additional challenges like having to work overtime or having to deal with people in the office you just don’t like. Those things are out of your control, but asking for a raise is not! Don’t be scared! My Mom always said, “If you don’t ask, the answer will always be no!” Her wisdom holds true for everything in life, and especially advancing your career. Don’t forget that pearl of wisdom.
I know, I know, how the heck can you possibly go about getting that significant raise that you deserve? Don’t worry, I have some game changing tips to help you out. I used all of these to climb the corporate ladder before leaving to work on my own thing, and the only thing I regret is not having done this earlier on in my career. I didn’t have the guts back then! Don’t make the same mistake I did. I went from $30,000 to six figures in less than three years through busting my butt and asking for raises, in addition to a few other things I’m going to discuss on the new Chip Chick Career section.
Like Drake says, know your worth! Now read on and ask for that raise, girl! You got this! I’m cheering for you, Drake is cheering for you, all of Chip Chick is cheering for you; heck, even my Mom is too because she loves women that stand up and ask for what they deserve. You have a whole cheering section!
