What if consumers negotiated like the business world?

What if consumers negotiated like the business world?

Maria LoScerbo from EpicPR.ca sent this fantastic video to me the other day.  It shows what it would look like if consumers negotiated the same way some people do in the business world. It’s quick, it’s funny, and it’s worth a watch.

    This video is so true…As a consultant, I have met some folks like this who think that these are acceptable negotiation tactics. When put into these humorous contexts, it really drives home the point about what often happens in a client/vendor relationship! This is why more and more consultants are asking for 50% up front; 50% on completion with milestones and deliverables along the way to keep things on track. I am personally not a fan of starting off a relationship this way but the video demonstrates why more independent contractors are doing it.
