My new list of things NOT to do to impress someone in the business world.

1) Tell them that after the workshop presentation you sat through, you had a strong urge to open the window and jump out.  Of the 7th floor.

2) Fail to laugh along with them after that comment.

3) Tell them about your background and experience and then suddenly blurt out the horrible diagnosis your family member has and laugh uncontrollably because, um, you are trying to make a good impression.

4) Tell them about your menstrual history.  Especially if the person you are trying to impress is male.  Include a description of how to deal with hot flashes (rapid removal of clothing, sheets, dog.)

5) Exchange business cards.  Talk about how much you’d really like to be his best friend and that if he agrees to publish your work, you will definitely be his best friend forever.  No matter what.peace - now!

It’s going to be a long, introspective night…
