Playing sport or socializing at a sports club are good too.
I've decided to focus my attention on peoples personal interest first, business interests second. Here's my story..
 Earlier this week I introduced my business partner to a friend who is a Graphic Designer (who we are going to work with on our new business). We only had an hour to go over some ideas, so we had to be focused. I made the introduction only mentioning some of their personal interests (a major one been the love of Curry) which they both shared. The next 40 minutes was a fantastic bonding session between the two. Although we didn't get through the work we needed too, you couldn't put a price on the relationship that formed between them. They are even organising a 'curry cook off’ and I'm confident these two will remain in contact on a personal level. Design work is coming along nicely too... Hope that's useful :) Jason

Landy has hit the nail right on the head with this post. I couldn't agree more. I've experienced people in business who give their time away and those who are only happy to help when they have their timer running. Both effective, but only one I rave about and refer onto others. The one who understands that helping others (for free) is much more powerful if you're building a long lasting relationship. I blogged about something similar in my post called 'Getting Naked - Getting Real' http://ow.ly/2nbqw Well done!
