Negotiations are a key skill every small business owner should master which is why we created this negotiations primer.
As a business owner, you will be forced to negotiate with suppliers, employees, and customers. Being a good negotiator, either to get the most amount of money for a product or service from the customer or the most value for products or service you buy from a vendor, requires some basic knowledge of business negotiations.
