Claudia and I just made it back from a conference in Chicago on internet marketing. We had a great time meeting new people and attending the great seminars. Not to mention, we got to spend time with one of our mentors, Dan Miller.
One of the things we realized once again on this trip was the value of meeting people in person. Blogs and social media are great and all, but your relationships and opportunities strengthen and grow when you share a cup of coffee or a bit to eat.
Watch this short video to find out with whom we had the opportunity to spend time!

Try this out for yourself. Over the next two weeks, get out and meet someone in person you’d like to get to know better.
Buy them coffee, attend a seminar, keep an ear out for when people are going to be in your area and ask them if you can buy them lunch.
You never know what might come of it.
