4 great questions to ask on your next 1:1 virtual coffee!
As entrepreneurs, we need to have a strong network of potential and current clients, referral partners, and resources. That requires us to get to know people in our network. During COVID – we have all switched to building our network to virtual “coffee meetings or happy hours”. They can get a little stale by asking the same questions like “tell me about your business?”
Here are 4 great questions to ask on your next zoom coffee.
1) What books have you read that I should read? Sub set- what did you implement/take away from that book? You can change this to blogs/podcasts or however you absorb information.
2) What experience have you had that I should try? This is great because it can really show you what the person is passionate about outside of their work life. Who knows – you may get invited to come paddle-boarding!
3) Who do you know that I should know? This helps them to make an introduction to someone they know. Sometimes a person will just pop into their head – go with that! It could be their scuba instructor. Be prepared to get more specific to help them out if they ask – such as who do you know in the _______ industry?
4) Who would you like to / need to meet? Leaving this open – they may ask for a business related contact, or ask for a plumber? Whoever it is – if you have a connect for them – make it!
Asking great questions will help you stand out in a sea of Zoom meetings. And you just may actually pick up a great connection!
