Show Notes

We get it.  You have a demanding schedule. We're guessing that your relationship -  specifically with your spouse, could probably use some fine tuning, right? Don't worry, you're not alone.

Many professionally successful individuals have complicated personal lives. Either they've been divorced, are currently struggling to keep their marriage afloat, or both. Finding a healthy balance may seem daunting, but we're here to tell you that with the right information and tools, it IS achievable.

In this week's episode, Emma Hansen joins her husband and host, Dr. Jake Hansen, in discussing some of the pearls they've acquired from 18 years of marriage together.  As firm believers in scientific based research - specifically the works of Dr. John and Julie Gottman, the couple hopes to inspire you with a roadmap to abundance and happiness within your marriage.

Part 1 of this series focuses on "The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse"; what they are, how to avoid them and what to do when they enter into your union. As you listen, discover actions that help you strengthen any relationship - but especially the one between you and your spouse.
