Our personal relationships can completely derail our business or our professional lives. Sometimes that is the obstacle and we need to spend some time and actually work on that so that we can have the success in our businesses and in our professional life.
In today's episode, I’m joined by Maggie Reyes a life coach and modern marriage mentor who specializes in helping driven, ambitious, women, create the marriages of their dreams without waiting for their partners to change or adding more work to their lives. She's the creator of the Marriage MBA program. It's a six-month mentorship in creating a successful marriage using principles from positive psychology, cognitive science, and simple coaching tools that you can learn today and apply tomorrow.
Maggie shares incredible tools and mindset techniques to work through any type of relationship. It could be your marriage, business partner, co-worker, friend, or family member. These relationships and connections are so important. Coming to the relationship with love and curiosity can lead to incredible energy and revival of a relationship setback.
In this episode, we talk about:

[06:45] No Defending, No Complaining
[06:45] No Complaining - Time to step into a new arena with your relationship. Try this out, instead of complaining, make a request. Here's a really good example of switching a complaint of always being late, to a request instead.
