The Art of Networking

What exactly is networking and why spend resources on networking activities?  Seems obvious to me, but then I've spent my entire career networking.   I've been paid to develop networks and introduce people in those networks to the company or companies whom I am representing.  So back to the definition of networking: 'Creating a group of acquaintances and associates and keeping it active through regular communication for mutual benefit.’

Business can at times be a harsh environment in which to maintain gratitude and good values.
