Networking and not networking….. #networking ?

It’s one thing to go out there and market yourself while also following up on valuable contacts.  But don’t forget the people who have gotten you to where you are.  Call that mentor from 5 years ago that helped you learn a new skill.  Reach out to the retired former CEO that you loved to have coffee with.  Have drinks with that former classmate.

They may not be able to help you in business any more but they sure as hell can help you in life.  And improving in life is worth more than improving in business.
