Can you tell a “professional visitor” from “someone who really wants to get business done?”
Have you ever met someone, had a brief discussion, then afterwards wondered . . .
· What was her/his name again?
· What did he/she say she did?
· Why would I care?
· Did he/she want something?
There are those that dive into a well-rehearsed elevator pitch....like a runaway train, full speed ahead without regard or understanding of where they are going.
Some people believe in the “throw enough crap at the wall something will stick” approach to selling. But when you are selling yourself, what you do or how you get it done, this method can just leave a real mess to clean up later.

Coachella Valley Music and Arts fest may be a weekend filled with halter tops and short shorts, but it's also become a hotbed of gender politics. The Los Angeles Times is reporting that the Indio-based concert event features only 16 solo female artists or all-female bands — out of 166 acts. And that's the best ratio the fest has ever had.
Last year, only 10 female artists or all-female bands performed.

I’ve given you a restaurant concept, amigos and tomodachis.
Why not? The sushi burrito is a thing.
Entrepreneurs have created whimsy and waste in the name of the burrito. Taco Bell’s Enchirito -- the enchilada-burrito mashup that was America’s introduction to the “wet” burrito -- is Exhibit A. The Mission burrito -- a monstrous package the size of a bullfighter’s calf muscle…

Fri, 18 Apr 2014 21:32:00 +0000 Assembly to vote on alligator skin trade Alligator is on the table – literally and metaphorically, speaking.
While alligator meat is perfectly acceptable in a stew (did I say perfectly acceptable? I meant delicious), the reptilian skins used to make high-end luxury goods like boots, shoes, purses, wallets and watch bands are only available in California as part of an exemption to an existing state ban on the importation of the once-endangered species.
In 2006, the state legislature approved a temporary measure that allowed luxury retailers,…
