First things first: don’t be afraid to ask for what you want. Next, you need to pipe down and listen. Nothing is more annoying than someone who will not stop talking! Make sure you do your homework and always be willing to sit tight or walk away. Last but not least, focus on the other side’s pressure, not yours and make sure you show the other person how their needs will be met. Oh and remember, don’t give away without getting anything in return.
