We all get swamped at work from time to time and it can add up to keep going out to lunch, but you should make it a point to go out to lunch on a fairly regular basis. But here’s the catch: don’t go alone.

More deals may have been made at a lunch table than a table in a boardroom. That is where people are most relaxed. And, if you didn’t notice already, a huge part of our marketing tips focus on networking with others-so go out and do it! If you can only spare one day a week, make it a point to invite someone or several new people to join you. You may get a new client, or maybe you’ll just make a new friend. Either way, you won’t regret it.
