Negotiating Tip: Do I need a Negotiating Trainer?

One of the most important questions you have to answer for yourself as you build your negotiating business is who are you going to listen to and learn from?

This is especially true now with so many home based business marketers vying for your attention and screaming “me, me, me!”

I have found that there are 3 types of “teachers & trainers” on the internet, and only one type is always worth following:

Type 1 - Someone who has read a book or gone to a seminar on a topic, has never successfully done it, and is now going to teach you how to do it. I recommend my RLH response here: Run Like Hell!

Type 2 - Teacher has successfully done what you want to learn, is going to teach you, but is no longer doing it. Approach with caution: while you might be able to learn some good tips and strategies, you will be learning what got them where they are, not what they are doing right now to be successful. You won’t learn leading edge new stuff.

Type 3 - Teacher has successfully done what you want to learn, is going to teach you, and continues to do what is being taught. With this kind of teacher you get it all: what got them to where they are, what they are doing now to continue to grow, and what are the new next steps and strategies to keep you moving forward.

This is the kind of teacher with whom I will spend my time and money. By the way type 3 is what describes my One-on-One Mentoring philosphy which I have practiced for over 22 years!

My recommendation: Learn from and follow only those who have done it, are teaching it, and continue to do it in their own businesses every day.

If you agree as I do, that this is the best approach to becoming successful in the shortest time frame possible, please stop by :

Business bankruptcies keep rising; no relief in sight

WASHINGTON — As the curtain falls on one of the most devastating financial years on record, business bankruptcies — both large and small — continue to soar.
The nearly 58,000 commercial bankruptcies filed nationwide through November of this year exceed the year-end totals of every year since Congress overhauled the bankruptcy laws in 2005, according to Automated Access to Court Electronic Records, an Oklahoma City bankruptcy data company.
The 11-month figure is also 35 percent more than the nearly 43,000 business petitions filed in all of last year, the company's data show. Estimates for 2009 could triple according to industry experts – what a mess !

75 % of businesses in 2008 identify themselves as in financial trouble.
