You may wonder, Can I really have it all—a thriving career, a husband who is supportive, and a healthy and terrific marriage and family life? The answer is yes. All you need is permission to prosper.
Permission to prosper? It's simple: Do your husband's words and actions promote, communicate acceptance of, and even celebrate your career successes?
Inside, you'll uncover the secrets to overcoming the difficulties and stresses a dual-career marriage can create between spouses, including the most effective ways to:
·Facilitate your husband's acceptance of your personal and career growth
·Recognize and adjust your behaviors that may trigger negative responses

·Anticipate specific pitfalls in dual-career marriages and avoid their consequences
·Identify spousal sabotage and learn to deal with it effectively
·Thrive in your career and still be committed to your family's needs
·And more
In any marriage that is full of love and respect, permission to prosper granted and received by both husband and wife will lead to a relationship that nurtures deep, spiritual, and stable bonding. By applying the valuable principles in this book, your marriage will be one of support and opportunity, your career will be what you want it to be, and life with your husband will be a source of never-ending encouragement and satisfaction.
