Whether you feel relational or not, it’s arguable that relationships are an essential part of life, and most definitely an integral part of being successful.  

Last week, we began a great discussion aiming to answer the question, “What is success?” We determined that true success is found in the four principles described in the R.E.A.L. acrostic. Today, we’ll begin exploring our definition of being a R.E.A.L. success by talking about the first principle…relationships.  

Life and business coaches, Andy Kerr and Bill Cox will talk about why relationships are important and name some techniques you can use to build great relationships. These real-life, applicable principles are tools that you can use TODAY to become a R.E.A.L. success!
