In your business life, you probably spend a lot of time (okay, probably not enough) working on growing your network. You are growing your connections on LinkedIn, you belong to a trade organization or two and you are trying to work with as many people in your channel as possible. Why? Because you understand that a strong network can help you to grow your business and introduce you to new ways of doing things. “It’s not always what you know, but who you know” is as true in the digital age we live as it ever has been. Keep growing that tribe.
