  • I've used #3 in parent-teacher conferences and IEP meetings. If the meeting is contentious in any way, the notes are very valuable later.

  • Keeping notes on people you meet is a good idea. I tend to forget peoples names. I find that frustrating when I met them again.

  • I love this article!!

    It made me think about some of my own habits and one that came to mind immediately was my knack to start conversations with ANYONE! My poor hubby gets so tired of my chatting with people only to find a way to fit their interests with my new business. It is a kick! He always asks, "can we stop working now"? lol I just remind him of how much he will appreciate the "chatting" when the products begin to move.

    If it is okay with you... I may have to borrow, no, steal your wish, "to learn how to draw a line between work time and family time". I work a full-time job as an Executive Asst. and run my company in any spare moment I can grab.

  • Thanks for the tips.

    My fave was about making a personal connection with everyone you meet.

    It's often through those personal connections that we learn of many potential career opportunities.

    Thanks for sharing!
