In Negotiations

Jill and Bill live in Chicago.  Jill works at a large company as Human Resource Director.  Bill has a law practice.  Jill has been offered an advancement opportunity with a substantial raise in pay. The job is in the New York office.

Both are excited about the opportunity; however, it has taken Bill a number of years to build his practice and two of their four children live in Chicago.  This is a change that could require them to move, or possibly live apart during the week.

In order for them to make a decision it is necessary they both share their feelings and do some negotiating.  Together, they can come to a decision that suits both of them.  They might consider some help in coming to an understanding. 

(Proverbs 15:22) 
Plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisers they succeed.
