      • Tea with Jeff Riddle: Downy Sprout, Bai Hao Oolong


        from Samovar Tea Added 1,105 0 0

        Jeff and I sip some Downy Sprout at Samovar Sanchez and talk about why (and how) to build really deep relationships - for improved life, work, and even spirituality. I believe Jeff is soon to be a household name in business and social media, because of his really unique take on why and how to build relationships. After all, life is really just a series of relationships, those we've created, those we're creating, and those we will create. A valuable life is one in which we leave in our wake countless positive relationships.
