I got to teach a workshop at GeekGirlCon last weekend and had a lot of fun! I’m always a little bit nervous about the kind of crowd I’ll get at a convention; negotiation seminars aren’t usually what folks are looking for at a con.
I shouldn’t have worried; the GeekGirlCon crowd was awesome!
They came out in force and asked a ton of great questions. Such great questions, in fact, that I thought I’d share them with you.
Last Sunday night I, like the rest of my Twitter feed, watched something unbelievably cool. The rover NASA had cradled in a spacecraft, loaded on a rocket and lofted into space back in November, 2011, overcame considerable obstacles and the high possibility of failure, and safely landed on the surface of Mars.
An entirely different planet!! Mars!
Which of course made me think: this is a great lesson on negotiation!
I’ve got three, that’s right three, classes and workshops coming up in August and September! If you’re a creative freelancer you won’t want to miss out. I’ll teach you how to negotiate with confidence, how to set up your business so you’ll get paid and how to read a contract.
