  • If you’re an entrepreneur, you’re a sales person.
  • Determine your tolerance for risk.
  • Negotiation is about collaboration, and needs a holistic approach.
  • Bargaining is what most people think negotiation is.
  • There is so much strategy and research that goes into a true negotiation that by the time you get to bargaining, it’s an afterthought.
  • Jamie details the five steps to effectively engage in negotiation, which are:
  1. Strategy
  2. Setting the Climate
  3. Getting Information
  4. Clarifying Positions & Interests
  5. Bargaining
  • After those five steps, that’s when you can memorialize your agreement in a contract.
