The difference between acquaintances, affiliates, and advocates

Who’s Your Greatest Advocate?

There are people in your life who are:

Acquaintances
Affiliates 
 &
Advocates


Acquaintances will say they know you.

Affiliates will tell how they know you.

Advocates will put their reputations on the line by telling why you are the best fit for that next opportunity.

Quit expecting your acquaintances and affiliates to do what only advocates will do for you.

What are your thoughts?
