In response to should a person ask another person about their well being or their health on a cold call, my answer is a resounding "No!"
I believe only your doctor or your therapist really is genuine about asking that question and it has no place or role in the business world.
It's a complete turn off for me and you would lose my business if you asked me the question.
It's like perfume or cologne, it's okay to use it in a social setting, but it reek of dishonesty in a business environment.
