At the end of my first year employment, I was given a

At the end of my first year employment, I was given a healthy raise and handed a bonus check. Along with this was an offer of a "15% Guaranteed" Retention bonus for the next year as I was to be the main employee to stay on. Just stay for the entire year and it was to be paid. Side note is that the reason for this is that the business was being put up for sale.When I inquired about the guaranteed bonus after a year, the story had changed to that we didn't break even. I did not get the check. When I inquired and pushed a few months later, it was said that the reason I didn't get it was because the business had not sold and that my boss would honor his promise in the next few months when it sold.So here I am a few weeks away from this place selling and I am wondering what I can do to ask/encourage the boss to pay up what he owes me. How can I wake him up and avoid getting stiffed in this deal? I am also the person who connected the new buyer to the boss!
