Shea Emry is a former Canadian football player who played eight seasons in the CFL. When Shea experienced a serious concussion back in 2011, he struggled with depression and was left feeling unsure about who he was outside of being a pro-athlete.

He is also the author of Pitch Anything, and he teaches others on how they can get the competitive edge in any negotiation scenario. Oren talks about how you can frame a negotiation to your advantage and how to get a buyer's interest in 150 words or less.

 

Key Takeaways:

[2:20] What was Oren's defining moment as a man?

[3:30] How did Oren discover that monogamy was what he wanted?

[5:05] What does Oren do?

[6:20] What's Oren's book, Pitch Anything, about?

[7:40] The strength of your status and quality of your presentation = the amount of attention you get.

[8:30] Nobody is going to listen to you for 3 hours. People are busy.

[8:50] Pitch Anything is about how to raise your status so people will pay attention to you.

[11:00] The human mind is built to protect you in social situations.

[11:35] It's natural to act nice in high-risk situations to lower tensions, but it hurts you in negotiations.

[13:00] It can only go two ways. Either you're superior or the buyer is superior in terms of status.

[13:15] Most buyers assume they're superior due to them holding the money.

[13:40] Reframe the meeting so that the buyer has to earn your attention.

[15:25] Trying to get a raise at your job? Listen to Oren's advice here.
