This summer I went out often to network. The 3 babies were more independent and the 2 older kids were more mature. So I warned them that the summer was mine to come and go as I needed. I scaled back on their activities, daily swallowed my guilt and went on.
I met a lot of great people. I also ate a lot at these business networking meetings! Usually I eat salads when I go out because I don’t like the taste of processed restaurant food, but once in awhile I indulged in something a little heavier. It’s a bit more awkward, chomping and trying to listen, talking…don’t lick your fingers…wipe your mouth…remembering the correct way to eat this or that.
So here’s a nice, little business networking tip that I thought I’d share with you for your next business networking meeting. After gathering your finger foods and before returning to mingle and talk use this little technique. Here Chef John shows us a very neat and clean way to eat a chicken wing.
