Episode 13: Building Positive Peer Relationships with Marylin de la Hoz


This conversation was 100% fire! Marylin and I have known each other for many years now and we’ve worked together and around each other for much of that time. We are biz besties, life besties, and cheerleaders for each other and we both believe in the power of positive peer relationships. Listen in to learn more.


Marylin and I met at an in-person conference. She was still breastfeeding her youngest and we were in the middle of a session. I knew that she was going to be my people when she used iced pop cans to relieve the pressure of a missing baby. 


Since then we’ve helped boost each other’s businesses by referring clients, working in each other’s businesses and keeping each other accountable and on track. This is one relationship that has changed the trajectory of my business several times. 


Listen as we chat about our history and why relationships in business are so important. We’ve both built several businesses based on relationship marketing alone so there is definitely tons to learn.
