business Owners HUGE Mistakes: Bringing Someone to a Lunch Meeting


I wouldn’t say that being a business owner is hard work as much as I would say it can be challenging. As we all know, if you love what you do and you do what you love it’s never work. Nevertheless, there are certain things that can get in the way of your daily progress. Some of which can literally make you not want to work for the rest of the day. There are things that you should avoid when it affects your business. Here are some tips that I’ve learned over the years that can make your business run a lot smoother., entpreneur

DON’T: Bring an assistant to a business meeting without telling the other party

I’ve had this happen on a couple of occasions and while others may not mind, I find it to be very rude and inconsiderate. It pisses me off. If you’re going to bring someone else to a lunch meeting or dinner meeting let the other business person now. They may want to discuss something with you that is private or personal.

In addition, it is disrespectful because the assistant is being treated as an equal party.  Information can later be used against you or the other person at the table. I did not request a meeting with your assistant, I requested a meeting with YOU. At LEAST give me the option to say no. It comes off as grandstanding and very diva-like to bring other people into a meeting unannounced. The next time that happens I’m walking out of the meeting. More tips coming this week.
