You are able to network with professionals and building up long term business relationships. That is one of the key things I have been working on. Making friends with CEOs and other professionals. These friends and contacts have become handy.
I myself know some on Skype and we chat every now and again and offer support and help to each other when we need it. Very helpful and beneficial.
