In a world increasingly interconnected by technology and social media, the age-old adage “It’s not what you know, but who you know” takes on new meaning. The concept and power of proximity, or being close to those with influence and connections, has never been more relevant. As platforms like Clubhouse facilitate unprecedented access to influencers and industry leaders, the stakes of networking and building relationships are higher. And according to research from the LinkedIn Economic Graph team, over 80% of professionals consider networking important to career success. But what really drives the effectiveness of proximity in building relationships? And how can anyone leverage this power, even if starting from scratch?

On the latest episode of “Content Factory,” host Dennis Yu delves into these questions. Drawing from personal anecdotes and insights, Dennis explores the power of proximity, including a fascinating recount of his time spent with international monarchs, billionaires, and entrepreneurs.
