Perhaps one of the quickest ways to increase your income is to ask for a raise. Whether you work part time or full time, in an office or in retail, you can try to negotiate your wages. Remember to go in with a plan of why you deserve the raise. The worst that can happen is your boss says no. The best…. You get the raise or plant the seed that gets you a raise the next quarter.
