Stop anxiously playing someone else's game and start negotiating on your terms.
People in power have been dictating the game of negotiation forever
Forever ends today
Stop trying to assert yourself, crush your opponent, and end up giving more than you get.
Aim for something better, something you value more: long term relationships, win-win deals, respected boundaries, and higher deal values.
The old way of negotiating left the majority of people without leverage.
Let's set you up with a strategy that can be leveraged regardless of the power dynamics you are up against.
Negotiate without playing power games
Negotiations are not meant to be adversarial interactions. You both have different goals. You're not competing. You do not want the same thing.
Aggression and dominance will not be helpful. What you need to do is figure out what you really want and what the other party wants and how those things can be meshed together in the best possible way.
Be curious, focused, and open minded. understand how you can make the relationship the best possible relationship for both of you.
Giving you a real seat at the table
My goal is to empower women founders and business owners with the frameworks, strategies, tools, and support they need to form dependable business relationships, win-win collaborations, and increase their average deal value with at least 20% through negotiating with ease and confidence.
Negotiate successfully without stress
We have some how made negotiations into complicated and scary processes where we feel like we have to perform roles that don't fit us.
The Business Relationship Framework helps you move away from that and focus on what really matters. Building successful and respectful business relationships while being the best version of yourself.

Go from failing at the old game...
Never asking for the price you really want and making deals that are not profitable.
Not planning your negotiations to make sure you are prepared for the twists and turns.
Lowering your price before being asked for fear of them say no to what you really want.
Always saying yes to your counterpart's demands regardless of if they asking for too much.
Not understanding your counterpart's true wishes and making the wrong offer.
Not negotiating at all and loosing out on opportunities for collaboration.
To excelling at the new one...
Effectively ask for what you want and show the value of what you offer.
Always show up prepared for the negotiation and know your limits.
Bargain to get the best possible deal using simple formulas.
Discuss all demands and establish lasting boundaries during your negotiation.
Give your counterpart what they really want and win the deal.
Correctly frame the deal and price you want to reach an agreement.

"For one deal, Janet’s input directly helped me earn 23% more than I would have without her guidance"
I first took a masterclass Janet created on negotiation almost 3 years ago. It was eye-opening. I’ve studied negotiation before from others, but they were all about “win-lose” dynamics and power plays. It felt icky and didn’t work for me. Through Janet’s material I was able to uncover my own personal negotiation style and how to be assertive without being aggressive. And, it really works!
Since then, I’ve turned to Janet so many times to talk through different negotiations as they were happening—from establishing a better terms with my legal team and small business partnerships to large contracts with corporations. For one deal, Janet’s input directly helped me earn 23% more than I would have without her guidance.
Her tips and insights are very practical, and clearly come from years of real-world experience and deep understanding of human behavior. It’s definitely not just theory or all talk. I’m so excited for the launch of On Your Terms because it’ll really be like having a secret weapon and a place to turn to help you create a truly win-win outcome in your negotiations.
