15 months ago I hated negotiating.
I hated asking for discounts and I hated haggling on price.
I was an effective communicator, but I wasn’t an effective negotiator.
I got nervous in negotiating situations because I wasn’t sure how to ask for what I wanted, without seeming demanding or unreasonable.
Searching on Audible, I found Voss’ book ‘Never Split the Difference’. An ex FBI negotiator, the book taught me negotiating skills that changed my life.
Armed with these new skills (and a completely new mindset around negotiating), it would not be an overstretch to say that my life has transformed.
I have used the skills Voss teaches to develop deeper relationships with my husband, kids, family and employees.
I have saved myself thousands of dollars, received complimentary upgrades on flights and in hotels and diverted crises in the business with staff and customers.
When Chris agreed to be a guest on my podcast, I jumped for joy.
So I reached out to him on Instagram and offered to share it with my audience.
Ten minutes later we had exchanged cell phone numbers and set up a podcast interview at 7am UK time (this was 8pm on Saturday night).
I know I am fangirling all over this right now, but with good reason. I need you to trust me on this one.
If you want to be successful in life, relationships or money making, you NEED to learn the secrets of tactical empathy and negotiation.
And after you’ve listened, please leave me a comment and let me know your favourite part!
See you inside the challenge! It’s going to be epic.
