What Not To Ask
I know people say there is no such thing as a stupid question, but I beg to differ. Here is the deal - in business and networking you really should keep in mind what is coming out of your mouth. Here is a real jewel I have heard a couple of times now. The question usually goes something like, "Are you attending the Author 101 conference?" Let's see as an owner of 3L Publishing, we are more likely to speak at that conference instead of attending the 101 courses. I have even answered the question in the exact same manner much to the bewilderment of the person who asked in the first place. And, they still do not get it. Either way - this is a great example of what not to ask.
