I tend to have trouble in money negotiations at work. I'm ready to ask for a bump. I know my reasons and feel like I can back up my request, but my question is:
Does anyone know how to bring it up initially? Anybody have a sample opening sentence? Seriously, I need help, and I don't just want to say, "I wanted to talk to you about money." Unless, of course, that's the correct way to do it.
People who have been successful in this arena, or have been approached by their own employees, please submit suggestions here ASAP!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!
