|Every Day, I Become Better in Every Way.

I just finished training for a new career.
Half of the folks were over 40.
They knew that they were being passed up for other jobs because of their age.
Another man shared with me that a company chose not to hire him because he smoked nicotine cigarettes.
If you are a woman, you are paid less because you will cost more in benefits and down time at some point. This may not be the case, but it is the standard in any industry.
The poor are the first to be sent to war. The Armed Forces are volunteer corps in the United States, but the recruiters do not show up in the wealthier part of town . . . they go right into the 'ghetto,' and they approach college students.
Of the above paragraphs, do any of them really matter?
Of the above, the best would be the first line, which is a positive accomplishment of mine. This wouldn't affect anyone but me, as I learned some new ideas to help me help you.
I'll share one piece of information from the class.
1. The other must feel he or she receives a good deal.*
2. You aim high. The other aims low. You negotiate to the middle. The middle is where you want it to be.
3. When the other offers higher than you expected, set that as the new low. Do not lower your aim.**
* Some folks will not think any deal is a good deal. It is best in this case to offer them a chance to negotiate elsewhere.
** If you lower your aim, you run a high risk of making the other feel he or she has not received a good deal.
I'm watching the Saving Private Ryan on the network TV. Have a good weekend.
