You: “I’m doing okay, Jerry. Thank you for asking. I am running my own business online. It involves selling furniture items that can be delivered around the world. Do you need any new furniture?”

Jerry: “No, I do not need any new furniture but thank you for asking.”

You: “Do you have any friends or relatives who need new furniture?”

Jerry: “I know about ten people who need new furniture.”

You: “I can probably help them. I have business cards that include the link to my web site. Please pass these on to your friends.”
