I used to be too embarrassed to negotiate
prices of merchandise or services.My
husband is a tough negotiator and so I slowly started to see the benefit of
asking for a better deal (slow learner). While there are many of you who may be much
much more advanced in the negotiation department, here are two negotiating
skills that help me:
Simply ask for a better deal.It doesn’t hurt to ask.
After you ask for a better deal, be
silent.Don’t be the first to talk.Let them ponder the next move.
