    Don't slouch, look them in the eyes like you're paying attention, including when you talk to them and dress like you're making a respectable court appearance.

    Thanks for the responses, I know that the first ten seconds you meet somebody are the most important that's why I wore my business suit. Treated it like I would be with my customers at work.
