Prospective clients can turn up anywhere. At church one recent Sunday, someone hunted me down after I picked my kids up from Sunday school to ask me about working with them. (Yep, accosted after Sunday school to talk about business -- that’s the first time that’s happened.)

My family goes to a church that has about 800 regular weekend attendees. My wife and I go to weekly 11 a.m. services with a lot of other families whose kids attend Sunday school. We talk about life in passing, but it’s tough to keep in touch with someone’s life while waiting in line to collect our kids. For that reason, many of the working parents are connected on LinkedIn.
