“Be around comedy every week.”
Don’t live in isolation. Learning from your peers is one of the things you can’t do alone in a room. Another is face-to-face networking.
But there’s a network that too many of us forget about — the network of our families. Every day we work, play, tinker on our cars or bikes or computers, take our pets for walks, our kids to soccer, our spouses to dinner, but we move away from the networks which made us who we are.
You don’t have to be around them every week, but somewhere in your ‘original network’ there must be one or two individuals who you can stand to send an email to every couple weeks just to see how life is treating them.
Be a successful member of your family network.
