Marketing your Mediation Services with your own personal Calling Card Video Blueprint

So you want to be a rock star? Well maybe not, how about rocking the cyberworld with your personal mediation video? More like it huh! Well read on...

Online video is consuming the web as we know it whether you like it or not. Some prefer text content over video in most cases, and that's okay too.

A good laugh

I just posted a short negotiation video in the video section and for those of you who would like a good laugh it is hilarious! It has some background noise but still worth it to watch.

Moving the Goalposts 2 - The Blowback

In my last blog post, I described, at length, my personal methodology in crafting a mediator's proposal. Today, I'm going to consider what I call the "blowback," which is the downside of the method itself.
