When it comes to furthering your career, the people you know are often just as important, if not more so, than the things you know. That’s why you can’t afford to neglect your business contacts, even if making time for them is challenging in its own right.
Though you may not manage to sit down for lunch with your various associates on a monthly basis, you should, at the very least, reach out to each person in your network every few months to check in–especially since you never know when those folks might have a solid job/business opportunity that’s perfect for you. Steer clear of neglecting your business relationships, and to you with best wishes; 2019 will be your most successful one yet.
