You're due to make a pitch at an investment conference at a fancy hotel. You've been listening to other presenters and realize it will take a lot to rise over the background buzz when you present tomorrow.
At the end of the day, you go back to your room before heading to the conference mingle dinner. You step into the elevator. Just as the doors are closing, a distinguished-looking man jumps in, and you recognize one of the top Venture Capitalists you've been chasing for months.
Or maybe you're a salesperson and you've spent the last six months chasing a potential dream client.
