Day 350: Counter Offer

In contract negotiations, there is such a thing as the “counter offer.”

For instance, if you are a highly sought-after super(bird)model, a client who wants to book you may offer “one waffle” per photo.

You may then make a “counter offer” of 10 waffles per photo.

For visual learners, the use of a prop can also help keep negotiations moving.

"One waffle?" What do you mean, "one waffle?"

“One waffle?” What do you mean, “one waffle?”

I mean, look at this cute feathery face!

I mean, look at this cute feathery face!

I "counter offer" with 10 waffles. And that's just for a head shot.

I “counter offer” with 10 waffles. And that’s just for a head shot.

What's that, Grandma? You'll match my 10 waffles and add another 5?

What’s that, Grandma? You’ll match my 10 waffles and add another 5?

And you'll double her offer, Grandpa?

And you’ll double her offer, Grandpa?

Now that's what I call negotiating!!

Now that’s what I call negotiating!!

Sold! The lucky winner is - Grandma!

Sold! The lucky winner is – Grandma!

Well I know you outbid her, Grandpa. And I would have picked you, except....well....you can't cook waffles.

Well I know you outbid her, Grandpa. And I would have picked you, except….well….um….you can’t cook waffles.
