How to have a one of a kind, noticeably outstanding handshake

A weak handshake shouts instant disconnect!

"You never have a second chance to make a good first impression" is a hackneyed adage. Someone gets an instant second impression of you the moment your eyes lock and your bodies touch in a handshake.

Press their pulse when shaking hands

To create an instant connection with a new acquaintance lightly place your forefinger on his wrist vein so he feels the warmth of your body flowing into his. This is like touching the shaker's heart, because a person's pulse is a wave travelling directly from the heart.However do not press like you are taking his pulse!
