I have Mark Herschberg and Mark draws on the nearly 20 years of teaching at MIT's Career Success Accelerator Program, and a career spanning half a dozen industries. Mark distills the key skills for a 21st-century career into the Career Toolkit, Essential Skills for Success That No One Taught You.
Sure. Let's think about negotiating for a moment. Suppose you're 30 years old and you're going in for a job interview. They offer you the job and they offer you $70,000. But instead of taking the job, you've read a book on negotiation, mine, or a different one, you say, "Okay, I'm going to negotiate this."
So you go back and you negotiate for $71,000. We can all imagine doing that. That's not a huge lift. And so the manager says, okay, 71. Now, if you do nothing else in life if you sit in this job for 30 years, you just made a thousand dollars more. For the next 30 years, you made $30,000 for one single five-minute negotiation.
Mark talks about personal development, career development, and how to be an entrepreneur. He is a great book writer and this book is well worth the read. His advice will make money for you and help in your self-improvement.
