Most people don't realize that you can ask for a raise. It is important that you are able to showcase what you have done, and what you can still do for the company.

Your boss needs to see your ‘value’ in order to be able to give you a raise. Remember to start tracking the projects you did and the learnings you had throughout the years, while you are working on your projects.

Be proactive, listen to the people around you and know your worth. Asking for a raise is a quick way to increase your salary anywhere between 5 to 30 percent.

2# Change Jobs

If you are likely to quickly find a new job, this might be the easiest way to increase your salary.

Be aware that by law your new employer is not allowed to ask you about the level of your previous salary. Always go big, and try to agree somewhere in the middle.

You could potentially increase your salary by up to 40 percent with such a move.

3# Educate Yourself

Another way to increase your salary is is by adding to your worth by educating yourself. This way you become a specialist in a certain area, and are therefore more compensated. You could even check with the company you work for if they are open to paying your education bill. This usually includes a contract that you have to work for the company anther 3 years after finishing your education, however you can negotiate in which function.

So the goal is...

The goal is to invest in yourself and be aware of your own value. So there is no way to quick money but by investing in yourself and knowing the next steps you want to take in life, you can see which method suits you best when increasing your salary.

We are Olivia & Morgan

So both in our 30's, with exciting careers including fast track to CEO positions, we met at RSM Business School during our MBA in The Netherlands. 

Always afraid to drop the ball, we quickly figured out life after 30 is not about having everything together, but more about developing yourself, knowing who you and what your goals are and ESPECIALLY  knowing how to get there.

Because we can all dream, but turning that into action and reality is a huge challenge.

So we created this platform to develop and achieve your goals step-by-step.

We truly believe that if you can dream it, you can make it happen. Anything you want, you can achieve.  

This is the philosophy of Eve & Elle and the core concept behind every article we write and product that we develop.

Everything we do is about helping you make it happen.
