1. Describe what you do (at a party, event, wine tasting…) in a SHORT sentence that includes a benefit statement. “I work with you on how to speak for yourself to make more money.”Karen Cortell Reisman Executive Speech Coach monetize your mouth

  3. Ask questions. Let the other person talk.
  4. Give compliments. Tip: be specific and sincere.
