Starting  a family and buying a house are NOT things you should mention when asking for a raise.

The things you should mention are the compensation you were pronmised when you were hired, your accomplishments in the past year, the actual amount you have saved the company(it will not help to exaggerate-“millions per day” really?) etc.

@julies1949: I second this advice. Business owners do not care whether you want the luxury of owning a house or having children. All he should mention in the meeting is hard dollars and cents (aka what he saves the company and maybe what comparable positions pay). It really sounds like he should just move to another job, though.

@julies1949: Agreed.

Mention why he DESERVES a raise not why he wants a raise.
