Preparing for a client meeting

It’s been a little while since I have had an in person, client meeting. Actually over a year.

I’m a little nervous about it. As professional as I will present myself, there is always that little fear that the client and I will not have a rapport – the client could be scummy :-D. Sometimes it’s very easy to hide scummy in email/Skype and phone interactions.

But mostly, it’s possible to have personality conflicts. Though I can’t really imagine why anyone would not love me! I’m wonderful! Talented! And soooo humble! (hehehe)

The possibility exists and so, I’m nervous. Fortunately, I am prepared! I have a mobile office.

  • Laptop with cables – loaded with every kind of software I would need
  • Business cards
  • External drive with backups
  • USB sticks with back up files that I could give to client
  • Pre-printed forms, legal documents and contracts
  • Pens, stapler, labels, tabs and other office supplies
  • Extra paper – letter, legal and lined
  • File folders – I use poly, tow pocket with prongs in signature blue and orange.
  • Folder with notes and spiels (in case my brain has a senior moment)
  • Printer…

Oh no. The printer is broken. I wont have time to take care of that before the meeting. And I don’t have a spare battery. But we’ll haveĀ  electrical outlets. Still, a working backup battery is desirable.

I carry all this stuff is in a Crop in Style XXL rolling cart. A soft sided, super roomy, scrapbooker’s dream.

I bought mine at Hobby Lobby, on sale and with a coupon. Regularly this little gem would cost $120 US. But Amazon has it for about $90. With prime membership shipping is free.

So I’m prepared. But I’m still nervous…
