“It’s all about who you know.” This is the classic piece of sage advice offered to neophytes in any industry. Whether you are trying to break into acting or ice road trucking, you have to meet people in the business. Knowing the right people is also important outside of the cubicle. Anything in life can become that much easier when you know the right person to ask for help. It’s hard meeting people in the city, but there are some people you just have to know. If you don’t have “a guy” for those vital aspects of existence, your quality of life drops until you aren’t living much of a life at all. These are the essential people you need to know to make life in the city a little easier.
