The genius of a business lunch

Golf tournament line up
We had lunch at the Hyatt Grand Cypress Golf Clubhouse.


The business lunch was invented to provide an opportunity for at least two people to get to know each other better and to feel out the situation to make an informed decision about moving forward in some form of mutual advantageous business exchange.

The key outcome is relationship building.

And the key outcome from that is growing your business.

Breaking bread together, as it were, is one of the most fundamental ways to accomplish this.

Note: i knew this at Disney but never practiced it (because i wanted to have a life outside of work) because i thought that simply being excellent was enough. Turns out, it’s not.





On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.
