Off the top of my head -- add 25% to your current rate.
Then negotiate for additional perks
You establish a value you wish to receive (on the high end). Add some stuff
Then you have some room for negotiation. That gets you back to the high end
of what they might offer.
Shoot for the stars - hit the top of the tree; shoot for the top of the
tree, hit the dirt.
