Be prepared for the opportunity

Networking is important. The world stressed this enough throughout my life. But is it really?

Networking is useless without a specialty. What will they remember you by? Why should they talk to you again? How can they help you when you offer no services?

You need a specialty. Something people can remember you by, something valuable you can offer that others can’t.

Then you need to broaden your scope. Something to differentiate you from the other specialists.

Because “luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity,” and this is when networking is important.
