  3. Your ability to look someone in the eye as you speak to them is a tell-tale sign of your own self respect.
  4. Your consistent positive attitude will breed positive responses and positive results.
  5. No connection is made without some form of risk.
  6. The principle is: Ninety percent of success is showing up prepared.
  7. The less you focus on your motive to meet, the more likely it is that your connection will be successful.
  8. Take a genuine interest in other people before you ask them to take a genuine interest in you.
  9. The sooner you can find something in common with the other guy, the sooner all the barriers will disappear.
