It seems a little silly, but the hardest part to starting a conversation with a stranger is the first 30 seconds.

What if you just needed some practice at meeting new people?

What if a brilliant friendship was on the other side of all that awkwardness?

This is my September challenge for you today.

Go and find five strangers and start up a decent conversation.

I mean a conversation that is beyond shallow.

Start a conversation with strangers and make it less awkward to meet new and interesting people.
