What a difference a husband who encourages and supports your professional ambitions and achievements can make.

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:

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.
