HOW TO REACH OUT TO NEW CONTACTS

My new motto is "Just Hit Send!" I enjoy meeting new people and making new connections. Social media makes it is even easier than ever to find a way to message with someone new. However, sometimes I get stuck on what to say and spend way too long trying to craft the perfect message. Am I witty and likable? Do I sound fun enough for this person to respond? What I am coming to realize is that if you have good intentions and a natural connection, most people are open. You don't have to convince them with your brilliantly written message. Just a simple "Hi, it was nice meeting you, want to grab coffee?" The words can flow once you get together.  Now I start with a simple sentence and before I can waste an hour on my words, I tell myself to Just Hit Send.
