Asking for a raise is not a career move to take lightly. How well you present your demands can determine the effectiveness of your negotiations and those in the future. Entrepreneur Network partner Brittney Castro outlines a few simple tips on how to approach the sometimes tricky conversation.

Doing such steps as conducting a self-review can help to create a more amicable discussion. Know what value you bring to the team and consider measurable elements, like meeting sales goals, alongside other less tangible ones, like boosting office morale with your enthusiastic attitude. Castro also advises those asking for more money to define this value. Avoid going into discussions blind by having a specific value in your mind and then being prepared to negotiate that value.

Finally, Castro recommends also practicing your negotiation speech beforehand. Chase out any nerves or doubts by enlisting a friend and doing a practice round. The important part is that you try your best and go in with confidence and the mindset that you may have to try -- and then try again.
