I had a meeting last month with some members of the Board of Directors of a local nonprofit corporation. There was one little snag in my meeting plans (I had the girls). I decided to introduce them to the wonders of working at Starbucks. I grabbed two activity books and ordered a round of drinks and snacks and put them to work. They loved it.
The plan worked well for my meeting, especially given that the girls were conveniently located on the other side of the establishment!
