A couple years ago I got really into tracking my time for an entire year. Virtually every minute, there was an app running in the background as I was cataloging how I was spending my hours- all in an attempt to better utilize my time. And while 99% of folks will think that’s completely insane, they’ll likely admit that there might be some serious benefits to managing their time more efficiently. Similarly, we’re here to argue that negotiating is something that can benefit you regardless of what stage of life you’re in- whether you’re a student, a stay-at-home parent, or a CEO. Unfortunately there are a few misconceptions about negotiating that we’re going to tackle. But then we’ll go through a number of different factors to keep in mind that are going to make you a more effective negotiator in your day-to-day life. Factors like market research, your tone and non-verbals, the role of emotion during an interaction, and plenty more that’ll help you to earn more and spend less.

  • Extra cash – And regardless of where you are on the path to financial independence, we believe in the responsible use of credit cards. It’s smart to utilize the additional benefits that credit cards offer- for instance the 60,000 points that come with the Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card. That’s $750 when you redeem through Chase Ultimate Rewards! (not to mention we think it’s the best travel rewards credit card!) This is no joke- I’ve already done this myself which we discussed on a recent episode after I met the initial spending requirements of $4,000 over 3 months!
