Cut the chitchat – carry a dossier everywhere!
Reading a post at BornEntrepreneur.com titled Deep, Meaningful SMALL Talk, made me remember one of the reasons I started blogging and making information about myself public: If I blog consistency and others do the same then perhaps we’ll reduce then need for general confab, allowing me/us to get talking about something of value asap.
Online profiles help, but not in real time. I wish that when I met a new person they could just pass me some sort of beefed-up “about me” that included their backgroud, job, goals, education, etc. Having to ask questions to get that information can really take a while – and most of the time we don’t have it. What else would that document include?
