Scott asked if people ever get comfortable when networking with other business professionals.
Networking for some can be just as nerve racking as getting up and giving a presentation. You may not feel comfortable in front of people but if you use appropriate body gestures and eye contact you will appear comfortable - and that is what matters.
When networking concentrate on the other person and listen to what he or she is saying. This gives you the opportunity to ask good open-ended questions and make the focus on the other individual.
Be sure to avoid difficult topics such as:
Your health or diet habits.
The cost of things.
Personal questions such as "How much money do you make?"
