​There are so many benefits to surrounding yourself with people who are smarter than you.

People who are smarter than you make you up your game.

Smart people make you smarter. They make you better.

They spark interest and introduce you to new concepts, ideas, culture, people, and restaurants.

They know where the good stuff is, like networking events, and career opportunities.

And smart people, if they are truly smart, know the value of kindness and generosity and are likely to throw some of it your way.
