1. Be Social
As social animals, we are constantly networking whether we realize it or not. Our network starts from the people closest to us and then spreads out. Our friends and family are an important, and often unappreciated, part of the network. Friends and family can offer advice, encouragement or assist you in looking for opportunities. Learn to use them more effectively and without shame.
Moreover, everyone you know knows somebody that you don’t. Always be open to meeting new people and making new friends. You never know when and through whom, a great sales or job opportunity may arise.
