3 Key takeaways


  • When speaking in front of people, don’t forget to put out your credentials and make it easy for people to find you online. Clearly state your usernames on popular online platforms. This will help build your network and make the most of your speaking engagement.


  • A fail-proof negotiation tactic: before you ask for something small (like early check in in a hotel) start your conversation with the relevant staff member with “I am about to make your day ridiculously difficult”.


  • You don’t always have to get a ‘yes’ in a negotiation. In fact, you can be better off getting a ‘no’. Surprised? Here is an example: “would it be a ridiculous idea to ask you to (insert small ask or no brainer like: to help you grow your revenue)”.
