5 HIGHLY EFFECTIVE NEGOTIATION TACTICS

Negotiating isn’t about competing well – it’s about communicating well.

Here’s five tips to level up your negotiating game:

  1. Listen more than you talk: understand what the other side wants.
  2. Use timing to your advantage: hit them when they’re more likely to be in a lull.
  3. Find the right way to frame the negotiation: make it easier to negotiate on the points that matter to you.
  4. Always get when you give: When making a concession, receive something in return.
  5. Always be willing to walk: take emotion out of the equation.

  • Leading edge cybersecurity
  • Ease of administration tasks.

Three years in, April believes it certainly works. And it suits not just freelancers, but independent and remote workers, investors, CEOs, and even prime ministers!

HACK THE TRIFECTA – MIND BODY & SOUL

A startup entrepreneur had the unique opportunity to hang out on Necker Island with Sir Richard Branson and had three key actionable productivity takeaways that any online entrepreneur can put to practice overnight.

One important factor he learned from Branson firsthand was that achieving a work-life balance is a requirement for your success and maintaining the required passion and energy.

Here’s three key elements to help with a more balanced work/life ratio.

🧠 Mind: Focus on more sleep. Read a book before bed to switch off.

📍 Tip! Cutting down on screen time 15 to 30 min before bedtime improves sleep.

💪 Body: Keep to a strict workout schedule to take a break, stay in shape plus avoid heavy meals.

📍 Tip! Switch to the Tim Ferriss Slow Carb Diet [link]

😇 Soul: Develop a meditation routine that will help you relax and become more productive.

📍 Tip! Downloading apps like Calm or Headspace.
