Option 3 is the normal and probably best course of affairs for you to follow in Taiwan.

That was the point of playing to demonstrate your knowledge. And you ignored the fact I said you didn't provide verifiable references. I could say I played with NBA players in street games because they're my neighbors. But that doesn't mean shit unless I can prove it.


Wow, playing one and one shows strategy? You can't be a good coach without real experience? Gregg Popovich never played beyond maybe high school if he even played at all. Most NBA coachres never played at a high level. Are you serious? There is list of coaches that never played at a high level. Being able to play does not mean you can coach. Dumb Dumb Dumb

Why would I say I played street ball with NBA player??? that sounds so stupid. Everything you said is like at a elementary level. I'm coaching, it doesn't matter who I played with.

Why not set some targets?
Take the initial offer and set up milestones that when achieved will increase your salary.
Results are always a good way to prove your value.

I'm surprised you can't tell the difference between an analogy (however bad it may be) and something literal. I never said how much experience. But you still need to understand what it's like on the court before you can coach.

Before you go calling someone elementary, why don't you go re-read how immature your responses have been.

Your advice is to play someone one on one for my a salary increase.... :doh:

It's pretty hard to tell if you are serious or it's an analogy from that point. :ponder:

Pretend this isn't a basketball related job. Can someone offer some advice on negotiating salary in a general sense.

I don't know, man . . . Sounds like yer afraid to go one on one with the 60-year-old owner. :neutral:

torn ACL . . . MLC . . . broken ankle . . . sounds like a lot of excuses. :ponder:

If you can still play baseball, you should be able to run circles around this 60-year-old skinflint on a basketball court.

-----------
Maybe you should get the other coach to vouch for ya. Pay him a percentage of your raise.

Maybe you should say that you'd love to work for him, but your wife and/or Mom and/or best friend says there's no way you should work for so little.

Maybe you should dress like the pros.

Good luck.

First and foremost, you need to ascertain if other guys doing the same job are getting the kind of dough you're asking for.
If they aren't, you're more than likely humped.
Even with a letter from your gym teacher.

(Unless you were counting on the Humility Bonus)
Ain't NO thing like me.
'Cept ME.

Lesson number one: Assume everybody wants to hit you.

Hey! Hey! Start shooting!!
At what?

What I getting is the starting salary rate at 300/hr. I want 400, I don't think that ridiculous to ask for what I bring to the table. 100nt more is not a huge increase for them but it makes a big difference for me. I had a job offer that;s paying 65k to start with a 5k signing bonus, but I need to stay in Taiwan for personal reasons due to family health reasons. I have the resume and experience for a much higher paying job in the states, I just need enough for the next year to live off of before I return to the states.

Yeah, but, again, are other dudes getting 400?
That's the point.

I can pretty much guarantee that 100 bones is a pretty big deal to them, FWIW.
