Here’s a Cara Parker Life Lesson (I do these all the time with my fifth graders).
I listed a trunk on facebook marketplace.
I listed it at $50, knowing that if the right person came along, I was willing to negotiate down to 40. Within a few minutes, someone messaged me.
Person: I want the trunk.
Me: Great! Can you come by today to pick it up?
Person: I’ll take it, but only for thirty dollars.
Me (knowing that I was willing to negotiate down to $40): I’ll meet you in the middle. How about $40?
Person: Are you kidding me? I want it for $30. I mean, I am going to have to pay GAS money to get there. Other people are selling trunks for way less. Thirty, or you don’t get my business.
Me: Okay. Thanks for inquiring.
How many of you would have caved if you replaced trunk with Photography Services?
