    Discover the surprising, underlying reasons for most relationship breakdown and what you can do to protect yours

    · including the three small, everyday acts that can make all the difference!

    Are you in a long-term relationship and struggling to make it work? Feeling worn down by life & exhausted by conflict?

    Do you yearn for more love, joy & passion in your life? To come home to friendship and laughter?

    There are hundreds of relationship books out there.

    Many are very wordy with a mix of random tips or complicated exercises to work on as a couple.

    But what if your partner is too busy or doesn’t want to do them? What if you are too busy yourself? Who has the time for this stuff?

    What then?

    I’m here to tell you that busy people can have great relationships—& fulfilling sex lives-too!
