When operating your own business, having good networking skills is vital for success! Same if you are working for someone else or looking for work.
Building a network is not as hard as you might think. You just have to remember it is a living thing. It will grow and thrive when cared for.

Same goes for entrepreneurs. Establishing good relationships with customers can be the difference between success and growth or bankruptcy.
