Havey Mackay:

This is the only way to win at networking: Always offer to help. Never expect anything in return.

Over time, people will find ways to do remarkable and unexpected things for you that make your life easier.

When you’re hit by a storm, you are likely to find the most astonishing human network of support you could ever imagine.

Over the years, my networking focus has shifted from the quantity of contacts I maintain to the quality of contacts. The quality of your life is determined by the quality of your relationships. The quality of your business is no different.
