You rely upon people to book a meeting on their calendar, since you are generally not sending a meeting invite. Therefore, the day (not evening) before, I’d recommend the following:
1. Confirmation e-mail
o Confirm meeting time and place
o Provide your cell number
o Specifically mention that you have attached your resume and marketing plan
2. Prep any referrals/contacts that you can offer
o People that you know that could help build this person’s business, enable their search, etc.
o If you are tracking your contacts, take a glance through them to get ideas for good connections of value
