I ran across this tweet and wanted to see who all agrees? I hate to say it but I kind of actually kind of find this to be true. Sometimes relationships can get in the way of business or even our vision. Sometimes the ones closest to us can undermine or try and talk us out of our dreams.
In my opinion, (most cases) a stranger usually has no bias towards you and will support you strictly based on your talent and abilities. Not always the case but often. This is why networking is key. Whether you are aspiring or a professional. Meet new people. Align yourself with people who match what you want your future to look like.
