LET’S FACE IT, when you have to go to your entrepreneurial boss with questions that range from getting a pay raise to adding more people to your team, the task can seem like the proverbial walk into the lion’s den. It does not help if she regales you with tales of starting the business on her own, with no budget and no staff.

Should you shut up and make do with the resources you have? Or should you press ahead with your requests knowing that in order to execute your functions, you need the support – monetary or otherwise.
