Men, Let’s Talk
Men, our work is winding down, or changing, and our children have moved on. Our thoughts now center on the options associated with growing older. We think more about our health, our relationships, and our resources. All of a sudden, our world looks different. This men’s discussion group is a time to talk, to listen, and to share stories and experiences in a safe, no obligation environment. It’s a time to dig a little deeper into who we are, and what we have in common. It’s a time to learn and continue to grow as we look at the years ahead.

The negotiation of a new car involves three specific activities. The evaluation of a realistic purchase price for the vehicle of your selection is the first activity.

The final phase is in the finance manager’s office where a separate negotiation is introduced involving the sale of a variety of additional and outrageously priced extras, and financing options. The unprepared individual has the opportunity to be financially taken ’for a ride’ in all three situations. It is the purpose of this lecture to arm you with an approach that makes you aware of the process and how to prepare prior to entering into the negotiation of and signing the contract.
