"I would like to have a chat with you…"

Recently I wrote this blog post about sending out copies of our book to people with leverage. People that might be able to help us get the book and/or our brand in front of lots of people.

Arthur Gallagher, president of the Charlotte campus of Johnson & Wales, sent me this nice note in reply. I meet with him next Wednesday. I’m excited. I have no idea what he wants to discuss, but I know I’ll learn something. I hope I can offer something meaningful to him in return, and not waste his time. My plan for the meeting is to ask him to tell me what he liked about the book and why, what advice he has for me, and what I can do for him, if anything.

I’ll follow up after the meeting with summary of what happened. Wish me luck!
