Wrapping up this year, I'm doing an inventory of what's worked in my life and business in 2017.

Similar to the last Coffee Conversations with Cesar, I wanted to go over one of the most important keys to the success I've experienced this past year: partnerships.

The podcast has grown because of the key people I've met and had on the show. Some of those relationships have grown into amazing business opportunities and big win-win moments.

So I wanted to do a solo round on what I've learned through the years about connecting and building powerful relationships with influencers and leaders.

In this episode, I cut straight to the truth and get real. My intention is to shine a light on what actually works so that you can create quality relationships too.

Here's the truth about building relationships with influencers the right way in Episode 577.
