Understand Work-Life Balance

By: Zachary J. Lee When you think about not being able to spend enough time with your partner and feeling like work is overtaking your life (i.e., your job runs your life and not the other way around) what are you supposed to do? One of the biggest overarching themes that I see couples struggling with are feeling like they don’t get enough time with one another and they don’t have a good handle on their work-life balance. Before I started my company, I worked for a few years as a...

5 Keys To Avoiding Divorce

By: Zachary J. Lee Have you ever thought to yourself why you got married? The simple answer that we might say is “love”. But in my experience love only takes you so far. Love is absolutely the most important ingredient in a long-term relationship but there are so many other factors and determinants to avoiding being miserable, breaking-up or even getting a divorce. My wife and I have been together for almost 10 years and next week we’ll have been married for eight. Although we...

Are Relationships Without Arguments Real?

By: Zachary J. Lee Is there REALLY such a thing as an argument-free relationship? Sure, we’ve all heard friends or acquaintances say, oh we never fight. But it’s also evident they avoid real conversations that may inevitably lead to an argument. They keep it surface level. I’m talking about couples who don’t hold back. They aren’t afraid to tell their partner what they’re thinking and feeling. Dr. John Gottman says there are four types of conflict that tend...

Creating Your Vision

Have you ever heard of a vision board? A vision board is a tool for inspiration and a helpful reminder of where you want to go in life. The cool thing is that you can have multiple vision boards for multiple goals that you want to accomplish and for daily reminders of things to be grateful for in your life. Your vision board can be extremely specific or more general for the future like the one above. On my vision board I have pictures of love, growing old with my wife, success, being a...

Jealousy – The Root of Despair

Jealousy – The Root of Despair

by: Zachary Lee This past weekend my company hosted a pre-marriage retreat for couples from MN and ND. It was an awesome experience and one that I’ll never forget.  I’ll never forget it because of the connections and break-throughs that we had with so many couples. Couples struggling with communication challenges, family issues, depression, anxiety, sexual abuse and jealousy.  Although I could focus on any one of these issues, one connection I made with a young man at the...

Are You A Finisher?

Are You A Finisher?

photo: courtesy of freedigitalphotos.net (stock images “Runner Practicing On A RaceTrack”) by: Zachary Lee I’m a terrible runner… at least by my standards. My average mile takes me around 10 minutes. I’m by no means good at it.  In high school I was really good at basketball, but not great. I was the sixth or seventh man on our bench for our varsity depending on the game. No matter how much I practiced, how much I played, I couldn’t break the top five. We...
