Tea with Jeff Riddle: Downy Sprout, Bai Hao Oolong

By Jesse Jacobs

Because of his unique take on why and how to build relationships, I believe Jeff Riddle is soon to be a household name in business and social media.

In this episode 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. 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.
