Yes, indeed. I’m surprised by the folks that ask if they can meet me for coffee to get my input on something and then suggest that I drive an hour to meet them. Seriously? The answer will always be “no”.

When you need a favor from someone (and asking to pick someone’s brain or get input is asking for a favor), then you reduce the friction for that person as much as possible. Go to that person’s location. Bring them coffee (or treats). Offer something useful in return (reciprocal info).
