Just a curious question. The wealthy always has a large network of people that they know. Do they make use of their connections and how?
For what it's worth, it's not just the wealthy who has the network of connections. Rich or not, anyone can build a right profile of themselves professionally and build a network based on merit. I don't think people necessarily think of connections as a means to get something directly, rather it is a case when you need some help or inspiration then you decide within your circle of peers or friends whom you can reach out for the 'best' advice).
That said, I would say common use of connections would be understanding a particular industry that you are less accustomed to, making in roads to a new job and getting some tips to succeed, and knowing acquaintances (usually friends of friends).
