Happy National Coffee Day! Yes, that’s right, a day devoted to America’s favorite morning (noon and night) pick me up. What better way to acknowledge this holiday devoted to caffeine than by inviting someone to join you for a cup? Let’s CELEBRATE!
Instead of celebrating “coffee” the noun only, we should also celebrate “coffee” the verb. Let’s take action! Go on, right now, carve out 15-20 minutes for an impromptu visit with a long-time colleague who you’d like to get to know better, a business partner with whom you have professional dealings, a friend with whom you’ve been eager to catch up, someone who you see at the gym several times a week but have never visited one-on-one with, a relative who you’ve been meaning to check in with… the possibilities are endless! Whoever it is, I know they will be delighted to participate with you.
Oh, and here’s some even better news: In honor of National Coffee Day, many national purveyors of coffee are doling it out for FREE! Yep, it’s true… here’s a sampling:
Dunkin Donuts (free medium hot or iced Dark Roast coffee)
Krispy Kreme (free coffee and donuts)
Lamar’s Donuts (free cup of coffee and coffee mug)
OK, OK… I’ll toss my hat in the ring, too… National Coffee Day always marks the anniversary of the publication of my sweet Coffee Lunch Coffee: A Practical Field Guide for Master Networking. If you don’t already have a copy of this little gem… it is time! If you already own one, perhaps there is someone to whom you would like to gift a copy? Whatever the case, for every copy of CLC you purchase directly from my website today (9/29/2015) and tomorrow (9/30/2015), I will throw in a FREE copy of my minibook, Coffee Lunch Coffee: 5 Tips for Making the Most of Networking Events (a $5 value)!
How are you celebrating today? Do you know of any local or national Coffee Day promotions you’d like to share with the CLC Community? Please do so at CoffeeLunchCoffee.com.
