The phrase: "Your network is your net worth", is not an exaggeration.

Your network consists of the people you’ve met and interacted with in the past. This includes your schoolmates, work colleagues, bosses and clients.

These are the people who know you best because they've worked with you. And they know your strengths and weaknesses.

Networking is the skill of investing time and effort to nurture these connections so we can build deeper relationships that can be mutually beneficial in the long run.
