Let Them Drink Coffee
by: Shannon McNay
One of the hardest things about maintaining our network is figuring out what to say. We want to stay in touch but aren’t if there’s a good enough reason to touch base. The next time you think of someone you’d like to reach out to but can’t find a reason to do so, just do this:
Invite them out to coffee.
Everyone loves coffee…or tea…or a chance to step away from the desk for 15 minutes. Even more so, they love it when someone else is buying. So the next time you’re looking for a reason to reach out, why not try something as simple as:
“Hey, how are you? I’d love to buy you a coffee and catch up on what’s going on in your world. I’m free on…”
Pretty simple, right? Yep. And that’s the beauty of it.
