“…here’s what I do know: many of the good things that have come in my career have come because of the people I got to know in my early twenties. When I was that age, I thought that networking meant meeting people who were more influential than I was. The connections that have proved most helpful though are the ones I made with people the same age in the same field. It wasn’t meeting people who were influential; it was becoming friends, and developing working relationships, with people who would become influential.”
