Mind the associations you keep. If you cannot influence them positively, neither should you allow them to influence you negatively.
Daddy always said, “When things go wrong, don’t go with them.”
Again, if there’s no influence whether positive or negative then the relationship can be said to be a stagnant one. The purpose of contact is impact; admit you’ve outgrown them, go ahead and forge new relationships.
Your contacts can and will lead to new contracts. So you gotta hustle to play a much bigger game.
By all means be more sociable, likable and valuable. Even if you’re an introvert, work to be known, liked and trusted using the wonderful social media platforms. Yes indeed, your network ultimately determines your networth.
