Awesome Blog Post on Salary Negotiation (Pete Leibman, Drew Brees)
Pete Leibman is a career nerd who has a passion for sports. He just wrote a post titled What Drew Brees Can Teach You About Salary Negotiation.
I’m sure no one would pay me even $10 to throw a football… while Brees just signed a contract for $100M.
How did he do it? And what can you learn from it, to apply to your job search and salary negotation? A lot more than I thought. Pete’s post is awesome, so please go check it out. I’ll list the main points here, but you need to read his original post to get the depth.

Jason: Thanks for your shout-out, although I’m not sure how I feel about being called a “career nerd,” haha. I guess that’s what I am though 🙂 Hope you are well.
