So I LOVE to meet over coffee!....Starbucks, Peetes, really if it is infused with caffeine I am down! And I don’t mind buying a cup for somebody else either! Because in the grand scheme of things, I have coffee a few times a week and buying a cup of coffee for somebody else a kind gesture. In business kind gestures are important! They show that you care and that you want to give.
||Business = Giving.||
If you are not giving, do not be in business.
Whenever you give to somebody, giving back is a natural human responsibility. It is why you are given samples at the perfume counter, chocolates at the Sees candy store and even shots at the coffee shop. Yes, the sample lets you know how tasty it is, but only the most dastardly of scoundrels will take and never give back. Most people will always reciprocate. So although coffee is simple and not very expensive in the long run I have never bought a cup of coffee for somebody that did not either give me my 5 bucks back or do business with me! Upgrade yourself; understand that reciprocity is built into our human condition. There is power in a cup of coffee.
