It seems that very few people use this phrase and even fewer use it email/written correspondence, it’s truly unfortunate.  Maybe in today’s world, with everyone being overly busy doing everything and nothing at the same time, it’s just something that’s not even thought about.

I’ve gone to talks, networked, made connections, and sought […]

“It’s not for everyone”

“…but it might be for you.” That’s a home run. The stuff that’s for everyone, that’s easy to click, sniff, share, produce and learn–that stuff ends up having no character. It’s not memorable.
