challenge: 13 ways I break the ice.
Ehh, this is kind of an odd one... not sure there are 13 ways of breaking the ice that even exist. But for me, here's what I'd do:
1. Shake your hand... and not with a flimsy, lame handshake.
3. Ask questions about you, your life, your family and friends, your work.
4. Answer questions about me and mine.
5. Eye contact...
...like I said, not so sure about this one. I'm not an uncomfortable person and I don't get embarrassed. I've never met a stranger, so it's hard to itemize what "tricks" I'd use to warm myself up to having conversation with someone. My advice is to smile big, be genuinely interested and show your warmth. You can't lose.
