There's no such thing as a bad meeting

At worst you've learnt something about yourself and your pitch.

At best your business has moved forward.

A friend of mine called the other day. He'd just had a meeting with a potential investor.

The meeting had gone well. But nothing was signed. Another meeting was set up.

But he was on a high. He'd received some really great feedback on his business. His meeting had reaffirmed that his business actually was a business.

So, even if the investment doesn't come through, just the extra spring in his step had made it all worthwhile.

Never turn down a meeting; good even comes from the bad ones.
