Learnthe meaning behind a Texan’s handshake and its importance in business today

CUPERTINO, CA – January 16, 2020 – Southern hospitality is more than good homecooked food, politeness, or the charm and helpfulness of the Americans from states in the Southern region of the U.S., including Texas. A true Texan shows genuine Southern hospitality by how they do business — with a handshake. In a world where face-to-face conversations are becoming rare due to technology and globalization, entering into business partnerships and closing deals with a handshake are unbelievable to many. Not to Texans, though! A handshake is as good as a binding contract.
