Lisa Song Sutton- How to Negotiate and Network Effectively

Featured in this episode is former Miss Nevada Lisa Song Sutton (@lisasongsutton). She is also the Co-founder of multiple businesses such as: Sin City Cupcakes, Sutton and Chase Real Estate, Liquid and Lace and Gleaux. Lisa also hosts a weekly show called Live with Lisa and she has also been published as a model for GQ, Maxim, Macy’s and published as a writer in Forbes, Business Insider, Fast Company and more.

I connected with Lisa through Instagram as I saw she commented on one of Tim Ferriss’ post. From thereĀ  I saw her profile and could tell she accomplished a lot so I reached out to see if she’s like to share her story on the podcast. I learned a lot from this episode and hope you enjoy too!

In addition, I attempted a coffee challenge which Lisa and I about around the 45 min mark. It involves asking 10% your next purchase at a coffee shop. If you want to read the full story behind the challenge, click here.
