In this latest video, Entrepreneur Network partner Business Rockstars talks with an entrepreneur about tips for making a good impression. 

Hernan Lopez, the founder of Wondery, speaks how, in order to reach someone, you need to place yourself in the shoes of the person across from you. It's to be expected when you pitch your project, the person across the table will not always have the time to listen to every aspect of your discussion. 

Lopez recommends asking more questions at the beginning of your conversation. That can be the time when people are paying the most attention and you have room to make the best impression. Lopez notes people often like those who ask many questions. People who ask a lot of questions are regarded as being more intelligent and more adept at conversation. If you are still unable to gauge your conversation partner's impression through language, try reading her body language. Looking at how people react to you with body language can be more informative than words.
