The entrepreneurs behind massively successful ventures tend to surround themselves with like-minded people. However, they don't engage in "networking" like most people. Their objective is seldom about getting something out of the relationship to benefit their business or themselves. Rather, they focus on building trusted "got your back" friendships where the personal relationship itself is its own reward. They prefer to visit people 1-1 rather than participate in disconnected group events or social media style communication. Make it your practice to seek fewer, but meaningful, relationships rather than rather than a large cluster of fringe connections
