When you have done your sales pitch hundreds of times, sloppiness can sneak into your meeting preparation.

You forget your business cards, you forget to remove that food stain your small son made on your laptop, you forget to check out the prospect’s web site and LinkedIn profile, you forget that the person in front of you hears your story for the first time and you should deliver it as if you gave it for the first time.

Every meeting requires concentration, even sales pitch number 723.
