Some people don't do coffee meetings, citing that random encounters with people are a drain on time. There is surely some truth to this, but I'll always take meetings when asked (appropriately fitting into my personal and professional schedule, of course).
This article highlights just how beneficial these meetings can be, and showcases just how much one could learn or gain from a year's worth of weekly meetings.
So don't complain that you can't do something (raise capital, solve a problem, find the right hire, land a new customer, start a new business) when you haven't yet asked anyone to coffee.
A lot of first steps never happen alone; they happen when two people get together and make an idea better.
So you are you drinking with this week?
