When in your life did you talk to a total stranger and have something good happen?

So to summarize:
- No matter what business you think you’re in (investments, hardware, advertising, hospitality, industrial design), you’re really in the “making friends” business.
- If the people you know can’t help you because they don’t know, then you’re going to have to talk to some strangers and make some new friends.
- If the idea of starting conversations with total strangers makes you uncomfortable, then practice by complimenting strangers. Start with the next clerk you encounter: “Excuse me, those are great glasses by the way.” That’s all. Just start. A good word can go a long way.
