Thanks to the input of an SPSM, we realized how there was a true void for such a tool. In fact, when we googled “negotiation checklist,” we found some real poor quality checklists on the first page of search results such as one dedicated to mapping out all of the details of an S&M scene, a one-paragraph abstract for an article that costs $32 to access for one day, and a checklist that – believe it or not – contained the phrase “Rudeness and sarcasm don’t work even if you’re British.”


I’m glad we found a way to fill this void!
