Great advice! Getting out of the comfort zone is a big one for many of us, myself included. Don't get too shy or nervous that you forget to smile, too! That one little thing makes it a lot easier to find new friends and connections.

I usually before meetups write down the most important subjects and things that are important to be talked.

Then prioritize them so as to get the most of it, if the time is limited.

By the way, thank you for sharing.

Having #4 combined with #8 and #10 doesn't increase the level of coherence :D
