You work hard every day and you know that your performance merits more money than you are currently making. But the rat race is making it next to impossible to ask for that raise you want. Job growth is slowing, salaries are tightening up, and you feel like you might miss your chance if you do not act soon do not feel alone. Millions of Americans feel the exact same way and it can be hard to get past your initial hesitance to ask for a raise.

But, it is a more complex process than merely asking for a raise. You must be prepared to approach your boss and company from a multitude of different angles. In this comprehensive guide to overcoming your hesitance and getting the raise you deserve, you will learn exactly how you can step up to the plate and become the employee that no one can ignore, not only earning that raise, but proving to everyone around you that your presence is vital to the success of the company.

In this book, you will learn how to approach the process of getting a raise one step at a time, focusing on what you need to do as an employee to successfully convince your employer that you are worth the money. You will learn how to analyze where you are in your life and career, how you got there, and where you want to end up. A complete outline is provided to detail exactly how salaries are set by employers and how you can work within those parameters, evaluating your own skill set, and deciding if you are truly entitled to a raise or if you need to work a little harder for it.

You will learn how to go about earning your raise by creating a list of what your employer is looking for and methodically checking off each item as you improve your overall work performance to meet their expectations. Learn when and where you can ask for a raise and how to negotiate with a tough boss to convince them that your request is both fair for you and beneficial for them.

A special section on the top mistakes you should avoid in negotiating your raise is included to ensure you do not make the same mistakes that have tripped up many before you and an explanation of how employers give and analyze employee evaluations allows you to see inside their head as they try to decide whether your request is worthwhile to them. For any employee grinding their way through work every day, knowing they are worth more money, this step-by-step guide to asking for a raise is for you.

Review:

In How to Get the Raise You Want in 90 Days or Less: A Step-by-Step Plan for Making It Happen, author Kathy M. Barnes-Hemsworth has succeeded in creating a comprehensive go-to resource for people serious about turning their financial goals into a reality and implementing a plan to heighten and earn their value in today s competitive employment market. With every fiber of my being, I believe that it is every person s inalienable right to create a career that allows them to earn an abundant salary, still have a personal life, enjoy what they do, and feel successful, happy, and healthy. The skills that it takes to create this type of career, however, are not innate to us, but rather something that most of us need to learn, and Kathy s book is a smart and sensible place to acquire the necessary knowledge one needs to build a stable career foundation. Though the money one earns from his or her career does not dictate the level of their personal fulfillment or satisfaction, it certainly does help pay the bills and make life more comfortable. What keeps most people from creating the career of their dreams from a financial perspective is not a lack of ability, a lack of hard work, or a lack of education it is a lack of planning and intention. Like the old adage goes, He who fails to plan, plans to fail. As companies get leaner and budgets continue to get tighter, employees have to become smarter, more strategic, more competent, and more confident than ever before; they must learn to communicate a strong brand in the workplace and a unique promise of value. Just as cream always rises to the top, employees with strong brands who are perceived as delivering greater value will always be in demand and able to command higher wages even in economic downturns. As a certified career management coach, one of my greatest joys is found in equipping my clients with the mechanics and mindset necessary to support their career development. In my professional life, there is nothing more rewarding than helping my client s transition from stuck to unstuck, from victim to victorious, and from under-earning to financially successful. To this end, I am constantly looking for new resources that I can recommend, and I recommend this book to anyone seeking solid, reliable information on how to get a raise. Congratulations to you for picking up this book and taking steps to intentionally steer your career where you want it to go. Obviously, you already recognize how critical it is for you to ask for what you want and have a realistic, cohesive, and actionable plan in place that will allow you to safely reach your goals in the fastest and most efficient manner possible. I wish you all the best as you start reading this book and begin your journey toward a place of greater abundance and prosperity. --Robyn Feldberg, CCMC, NCRW
