    Network. There is the old saying 'Who you know matters' this counts for so much because through social involvement and professional networks you recognise a wide arrange of opportunities that are available to you. It becomes easier to see methods in which you can progress financially and meritoriously. As well as being very informed about job positions that are available and having access to information about companies and what is going on within them. Try to make contacts with everyone in the company you are working for from the person in the mail room to the CEO.

    Do favours for people. This follows on from networking. Any time someone asks for a favour, do not dismiss it lightly. Often, professional interactions work on a "You scratch my back and I will scratch yours" basis and so doing favours for others professionally often sets yourself up for the future when you need a favour done.

    Look for mutual benefit in things. It is often much easier to convince people to do things if there is mutual benefit there. It opens the doors for working on things together and is usually very profitable financially. Having an eye for mutual benefit then is of its own nature beneficial.
