You meet someone new and to break the ice they ask “What do you do?”. I am not sure about you but that question gets on my last nerve. Do I respond as expected with my job title? Or could I respond with the following:
I am passionate about running, spending time with my family, and reading. How about you?
Or. Oh you know. Being a total badass everyday. How about you?
Maybe a better question to ask would be what has been keeping you busy lately.
But if I want the conversation to be quick I say I deal with numbers all day. Most people glaze over and walk away. 😆
How do you get a conversation started?
