In conjunction with the recent publication of Marriage is a Business, we’d like to take this opportunity to re-introduce ourselves and the Marriage is a Business concept.
Jenny Secrest, PhD is a psychologist and educator passionately dedicated to helping couples save, strengthen, and grow their marriages. Her 20-plus years of experience have produced the Marriage is a Business (MIAB) approach to couple-hood, described in her new book by the same name.
Karin Bruckner, MA is a freelance researcher and writer with a Masters in psychology. She provides support for web content and marketing, along with outreach and education efforts at the MIAB Center.
Marriage is a Business is a brief, focused, to-the-point manual for overcoming obstacles on the business side of married life, and managing emotions on the feelings side. It is packed with ideas, exercises, and the real-life stories of couples who have worked through the MIAB approach to strengthening and enriching their relationships.
The recently established Marriage is a Business Center for Therapy and Education in Plano, Texas focuses on treating and supporting couples who wish to use MIAB tools, tips, and techniques in addressing their specific relationship issues. Schedule an appointment or request more detailed information by calling 972.985.1424, or write us a note using the Contact page of this website.
You can use the skills that successful business people apply every day as they overcome obstacles and achieve their goals. The mundane household management tasks that can clutter a couple’s life together don’t need to wreak havoc on their relationship. Step by step, the Marriage is a Business approach educates and equips couples so they can take care of business and get on with enjoying life together.
The MIAB approach is contained in the following mission statement:
“We agree to become partners in joint ownership of a business with a vision and a plan, adopting policies and procedures which are developed during regularly scheduled board meetings and are achieved through skills of negotiating, compromising, and communicating.”
