Keith Ferrazzi and Lewis Howes
Interested in learning how to build a life and business around doing what you love? So am I. Learn more here.

Have you ever met someone and been so impressed with their presence and sincerity that you wanted to be like them?

I have, and I’ve spent a lot of time developing relationship skills as a result.

If there’s one thing I know it’s valuable to learn, it’s how to create and maintain valuable relationships.

Today’s guest on The School of Greatness is the absolute master at this.

Keith is the author of two NYT bestsellers, including Never Eat Alone, which is practically a networking bible among business people.

His firm coaches the very top companies and individuals in how to practice vulnerability and emotional intelligence to create and develop powerful relationships.

But what really makes me like Keith and his work is my own experiences with him.

He is not only incredibly giving of his time and talent, but he recently hosted a dinner party at his house for me and several of my friends.

Let me say that experiencing Keith’s genuine interest in individuals and how he can help them is amazing.

I not only want you to take a lot of notes during this interview, but I want you to take action on what Keith and I talk about.

Welcome to Episode 118 with the master of networking, mentors, and relationships, my friend Keith Ferrazzi.
