Palo Alto, CA, USA – August 19, 2022 – Jotham S. Stein, author of the award-winning book Negotiate Like a CEO: How to Get Ahead with Lessons Learned from Top Entrepreneurs and Executives, was interviewed by Ida Crawford on the Just Minding My Business podcast.
During the interview Stein commented how the saddest, and most tragic, cases he faces are when family members, college buddies or childhood friends steal a company out from under a co-founder or major stakeholder. He said it’s more common than one might think and never easy to deal with. Which then took him back to telling the audience to protect one’s investments and equity stakes with iron clad contracts, making sure to seek out third-party advisers who can spot the trap doors and loopholes in the complex contract language.
Recent awards for Negotiate Like a CEO are Best Business Book at the Los Angeles Book Festival and Outstanding Creator Awards and Best in Career category at the Firebird Book Awards.

What does it mean to negotiate like a CEO? How important are employment agreements? How can you learn to protect yourself and your family if the worst does happen? These are all questions that Jotham S. Stein addresses in his book Negotiate Like a CEO, with the goal of equipping individuals with the tools they need to safeguard themselves in business and employment.
Negotiate Like a CEO isn’t afraid to get into the weeds about what you need to do to help your career. Stein peppers each chapter with captivating stories of employees who have found themselves in tight situations with their employer-stories that many readers will find familiar. He follows each example with insider insights on how to navigate the situation and save yourself from heartache.
“It’s the concept to protect yourself, to read everything or get a good adviser to read everything, to negotiate with leverage, just like a CEO would negotiate with leverage. I wrote this book to help the people out there who have no idea how to help themselves in their employment relationships,” says Stein. “Too many just don’t know how or are too afraid to ask.” -Jotham Stein
“Jotham has helped me throughout my career, from setting up strong employment agreements to securing stock compensation to protecting the management team during the sale of my company. Jotham is a guy you want in your corner. His book should be required reading for anyone who thinks ‘this could never happen to me’.”
-Andy Cohen, founder and former CEO, Caring.com
“As a hi-tech Silicon Valley attorney Stein is brutally honest in assessing a situation and advising his clients. In Negotiate Like a CEO you’ll learn to be aware, to recognize potential employment pitfalls, and how to protect yourself. You’ll also learn that you may have more leverage than you might think, either now or as you advance in your career.”
-Grady Harp, Amazon Top 100 Hall of Fame Reviewer
“As a CEO and multi-time Silicon Valley executive, I was very fortunate to learn from Jotham early in my career the great importance of the protective employment offer letter. Employment law is very complex and with this book you can learn from the best.”
-Bonnie Crater, co-founder and CEO, Full Circle Insights; former SVP salesforce.com; former SVP Genesys; former VP Oracle; former VP Netscape
