It's August and many people are away for vacation. This is actually an excellent time to build up your contacts. You will meet other vacationers on the plane, in the hotel lobby or on the beach. Everyone is relaxed so conversations flow freely. Sometimes you meet people that may not be immediately helpful for your business, but are good to people to know because they be an asset in the future for you or your friends. Since some leave business cards at home, then put their information on your mobile phone or even on cocktail napkin and organize things later like when you are on the plane on the way back.
