Always Behave like Duck, Stay calm and unruffled in the surface, but paddle like the devil underneath.

We want to start by saying in today’s world always pay attention to your future because you are going to spend a lot of time there, you might be admired in your current professional circle which is great, Professional executives we have observed have a "limited" to "no" intension in building a professional network for various reasons, some are busy, some have family obligations & other are introverts, but in today's world it is not a very uncommon phenomenon to observe several co-workers who have good professional networks are moving towards better job because of their networks
