I have a confession to make: In my life and business I’m a hugger. I hug my friends, I hug my clients, and I hug the people who come out to my events.
At one event a woman told me she thought hugging was completely unprofessional, and that’s when I knew I just had to talk about hugs versus handshakes in an episode of She Takes on the World TV.
I don’t really like handshakes unless it’s for an initial meeting, or if someone kind of creeps me out. There are a few other situations that I think call for handshakes instead of hugs, and I’ll discuss those in today’s episode.

Now I want to hear from you: Do you think hugging is appropriate in business, or is hand-shaking the way to go?
