#1. Never leave home without your business cards…you never know who you will run into or what you’ll talk about and where that conversation might lead.
#2. Always talk to people. About the day, their life, their work, your work. Make connections wherever you go. Don’t make assumptions about who could be a potential client. How do you know that the guy who pumps your gas every week isn’t a wildly skilled artist who makes brilliant weathervanes from old plumbing parts? How do you know that he isn’t looking for a full line of marketing materials and a marketing strategy?
