Meeting new people becomes a far more enjoyable, much less daunting endeavor when you simply show up with deep curiosity and a smattering of questions that AREN’T…
“So, what do you do?”.
The variations of questions I like to sprinkle into my conversations when meeting someone for the first time are ones that, more often than not, bring a smile or fun expression to the other person’s face before/while they answer.
In the hopes these questions might be useful to you, here they are…
(TIP: grab just 1 or 2 that you like; don’t feel like you need to use all of these!!)
The only actions I take when asking the above questions are:
Just connecting with others and getting them out of their auto-responses of “Here’s what I do” and showing them that I know they’re so much more than the work they do (even the entrepreneurs).
Overall, I’ve found people are quite fascinating when you simply give them the opportunity to be.
When you're sick and tired of getting in your own way, and you know you're capable of SO much more, it's time to talk to us.
