Before deciding what to order at a restaurant I’m visiting for the first time, I frequently ask the server what he would order. I might be in the mood for fish, but the variety and how it’s prepared are endless. And the menu rarely tells the whole story.

Dating Advice for Marketers

Try this the next time you’re hankering for a healthy dose of humility. Walk into a bar and say to the first person you find attractive “Hey, you want to start a family?” I’m guessing your chances of getting a “yes” are about the same as winning the $500 million Power Ball drawing.
