The Real Estate Saga Continues: What 2 Failed Deals Taught Me About Negotiation

podcast Mar 16, 2023

Whether you’re trying to get your dream package, get your kids to do something, or buy a home, negotiation skills come in handy in many situations in our lives.

This is very true in my real estate adventures over the last year as we’ve been trying to buy a lake property.

After 2 attempts that didn’t go the way we planned, we finally got something (yay), but I don’t consider the last two attempts as failures.

What did I learn from the deals that didn’t go through?

In this episode, I share more lessons from my lake home misadventures and how we can apply them to employee negotiations.
