Tricks to Get the Conversation Started!

It is really interesting getting back into a different type of work. I didn’t realize how much more outgoing and friendly I was  when I was doing photography full-time. It was REALLY easy to talk to my clients and get to know them. I LOVED meeting new people and LOVED interacting with strangers. Today I was thinking about meeting a whole bunch of new people in a new area and I was stunned that I was slightly apprehensive. Don’t get me wrong I know I will love all the people I meet and have a great time but my first thought was, “What do I say?” lol

So I came up with a few conversation started for any situation that you may be in.

Take a read and if you have a few ideas of your own Let Me Know! I would love some more. 2 or more minds is way better than 1!
