If you are able to figure out how to be truly interested in someone you meet with the goal of building up a friendship instead of trying to get something out of that person, the funny things is that almost always, something happens later down the line that ends up benefiting either your business or yourself personally.  Stop trying to “network” in the traditional business sense, and instead, just try and build up the number and depth of your friendships, where the friendship itself is its own reward.

—Tony Hsieh, Zappos founder and president
