In our Ask An Expert Live segment, Steve answers a question from Kayla. She doesn’t really enjoy negotiating and asked for some tips on how to make the process a less stressful endeavor. Steve puts on his Lawyer hat and lets you know some fantastic tips on how to turn negotiating into a game. It takes the emotions out of it and helps you to succeed!

Then, Steve welcomes one of the greatest negotiating experts in the country, Professor Lawrence Susskind.
