I strongly disagree that simply knowing the right people is a
one-way ticket to success.

The notion that "ITS ABOUT WHO YOU KNOW 🧐 " is one of the most toxic and disempowering ideas floating around.

Yes, knowing the "right" people helps, but only, and I repeat ONLY when you can provide value. I strongly disagree that simply knowing the right people is a one-way ticket to success. The right people won't hire you simply because you're such a friendly guy or because you reached out.

If you're in the early stages of your career develop your craft & prove that you're worth hiring. Take ownership of your career and the right people will find you. You might already know the right people but you just haven't demonstrated your value.

No one can steer your ship in the right direction if you haven't decided on what your destination is. Take ownership of your career. IT'S NOT ABOUT WHOM YOU KNOW, ITS ABOUT WHAT YOU CAN PROVIDE.
