It’s Not Just Who You Know

There is no doubt about it, that knowing the right people can help when growing or starting a business. What is not often considered is that knowing someone is not enough. Most people who have the influence to help or make things happen have the intelligence to only open up doors to people they trust and respect, specifically people they know that will not let them down.

It would be much wiser to spend your time developing character, skill, and respect than building a network because at the end of the day you will only be as good as you are.
Pamela Slim has a great article on this topic with some alternative ways of thinking and working instead of trying to target a VC right away.
