I have something really cool for you today. If you’re interested in cutting the bills you’re already paying and applying all the negotiation techniques you “should” be using, read on.
As most of you know, because I’m Indian, I was basically bred to negotiate.
As a kid, I learned how to bargain at Macy’s. I practiced on the streets of New Delhi with street vendors. And since then, I’ve negotiated with employees, car dealers, obstinate vendors, clients, and a few less savory characters that I’m not going to mention in an email that my mom reads.
I think back to the first time I negotiated. Did you ever feel nervous? I knew it had been done (from everyone telling me, “Just do it!!”) but I couldn’t shake the nervousness in the pit of my stomach.
But when I got what I wanted, it was a magical feeling. Now, I might save thousands of dollars on one negotiation with a vendor. Do you know what feels the best?
- Knowing that negotiation is a SKILL that I actively improved — meaning anyone can do it
- (This one is only relevant for guys) Knowing that I paid 50% less than other people…meaning I win
The truth is, learning to negotiate is one of 10 Big Wins that can change your life forever. Once you make it part of buying, you can save hundreds of thousands of dollars — and get better service with these negotiation techniques . (NOTE: Don’t assume you have to negotiate EVERYTHING. As I’ve become more advanced, I don’t negotiate everything. I actually negotiate less! But for the big things, I’m relentless. This saves me cognitive overload and lets me focus on the Big Wins.)
What would you do with an extra $2,000/year? $5,000?
Isn’t it worth 10 minutes negotiating thousands…instead of reading about some way you can dilute Pine-Sol to save $0.30 a year?
