After the first year in college, Debbie was placed on probation as her grades were not looking good and if there is an improvement, she could be withdrawn. This made Debbie so worried and this was affecting her both mentally and emotionally.
Luckily for her, a friend of hers introduced Debbie to Joy who was top of their class. Presented with this awesome opportunity, she made sure that she maintained her relationship with Joy as this led to a gradual but speedy improvement in her grades.
Just like Debbie, quite a several people are struggling professionally. However, they do not see the need to build and develop their professional network.

Hence, you must be intentional about your professional network because having the right people makes work easy.
At your workplace and business meetings, be deliberate in making friends as this gives you career advancement.
