The Secret of Great Relationships with Dr. Sakeisha and Eric Hylick


The average length of marriage before divorce is around 7 to 8 years. Surprisingly, this is considered long enough by the society we live in. And this is evident not only in marriage but also in business. About 70% of business partnerships fail. Regardless of the kind of relationship, there is always a determining factor whether that relationship will fail or not as we will see in this week’s episode with Dr. Sakeisha and Eric Hylick. Learn what causes relationships to fail, how to turn the desire for instant gratification into gratitude, why it is critical to stay in your lane, why you should avoid comparing yourself to others, why you should allow yourself to trust again, and how to rise from failure. Be prepared to receive the answer to what you prayed for. Tune in until the end and find out the secret to great relationships!
