Buying Items From Industry Professionals Instead

So recently I had to buy some workout gear and of course the retail stores usually charge a significant retail mark up to make a profit. For one item in particular it looked like I would have to spend about $50 normally. Instead, a person that worked in the field offered to buy them for me since he has a working relationship with most of the vendors. Result? I saved about 60% in doing so.

I’m pretty sure if you look down the chain of your contacts you can usually find someone working in a field that can help you out with scenarios like these. Of course, the polite thing is to not overdo it if you don’t actually know the person too well. But for the most part people don’t usually mind.

You worked hard throughout your life to build your network so you all may as well help each other when you can to benefit everyone.
