networking dos and don’ts

Do: Flattery. We all LOVE to hear about how great we are, especially when it’s sincere.

Don’t: After giving said flattery (and your site/product pitch), do not ask me what my name is.

Wow. I can’t believe that actually happened. For one, all flattery is now voided, since you don’t have an accurate idea of who I am. And second, just let it slide, ask your friends to find my name, spare yourself the embarrassment. But really, why be talking to me in the first place in this situation?
