When I get up in the morning, I always tell myself that I am not going to wait for my parents to do things for me. I have to get up myself and do my things.
The same is true of networking. I am not going to wait for someone to approach me and give me their contact info. I am going to approach the person and try to find the points we have in common and share things with them, so that in the years to come, or tomorrow, if I need that person, it will not be because they approached me. I am the one who got up and went over to the person.
The same is true for the FESFO. I went to those people, and now look where I am.
