WHEN reaching out to people, decide on your private and public purpose. They may be the same, or at least complementary. Only share your private purpose with very trusted people, and only share your public purpose to the world.
Also, treat everyone you meet with equal importance, making immediate rapport. They will like you if they feel you are showing them respect, and are interested in their number one priority in the world, which is themselves.
