    Go in with the attitude of listening to him first...get a good feel as to the type of biz he can offer or refer you to THEN position your business as a solution to what he needs. Don't talk to much up front......

    Good tips from DA.

    In addition, be sincere. Don't go in there like a hotshot. Most business people would rather have a modest guy with little knowledge but eager to please than some know-it-all who they can see through like a lace curtain.

    Just to add on here, make sure that you are very professional when you are meeting with him. They will feel much better about you if you are dressed to impress rather than wearing some holy jeans with dirt all over.
