A business built out her own painful story.
Laura Doyle’s marriage was a painful reality. She didn’t understand what had happened but things were not as she had dreamed they would be. That’s when she made the choice that would change her entire life. She decided to begin a study of women who had happy and fulfilling marriages. What she discovered was the basis for her “6 Intimacy Skills” teaching and the change her marriage needed. The results have been huge!
Women speaking 16 languages and in 27 countries and a variety of faiths have not only saved their marriages by applying Laura’s principles, they have joined the movement to end world divorce–one relationship at a time. Find out more about what Laura is doing to change the world one marriage at a time, on this episode of New Superwoman Entrepreneur.
A mind blowing truth Laura discovered: Men and women are different.
As Laura Doyle was engaged in her own study of people with happy marriages she discovered something that may seem painfully obvious, but it wasn’t to her: Men and women are different. She’d been taught and had even read books that said that men and women were basically the same and that things that were perhaps traditional for men to do to show care and concern for women were chauvinistic and should not be tolerated. But what she discovered was that those things became traditions for a reason.
Men and women are indeed different and each of them need to approach their relationship with each other with that foundational truth in mind. For example, that truth not only impacts what they say to each other, but also how they say it. You’ll discover Laura’s common sense insights in this episode that can help not only your marriage, but your relationships with any men, so make sure you listen!
A basic male/female truth: Men love to see their women happy!
As Laura’s marriage relationship began to improve she discovered that her husband wasn’t an inept, selfish man at the core – he was very competent, smart, funny, and eager to see her life filled with joy. In fact, he was happiest when he could see a direct correlation between Laura’s happiness and his part in making it happen. It was a revelation for Laura. Up until that point she’d felt that she needed to watch what he was doing to make sure it was done right or even tell him what to do so she could feel assured that things would get done the way she thought was best.
But when she discovered this truth, everything changed – because her beliefs about her husband and her actions toward him began to change. Hear Laura’s story and discover some tips to help you build the relationship of your dreams, on this episode of New Superwoman Entrepreneur.
A power business move: Listening to her market.
As Laura Doyle’s books began to sell and her business took off, she began to realize that though the success of the books was great, it wasn’t enough. The women who were buying her books consistently asked her for more. As she listened to what her ideal followers were saying to her she realized that there was more she could be doing, not only to grow her business but to help the very women she was writing for.
She began offering coaching, retreats, seminars and conferences, and other tools to help women apply the things she was teaching in practical ways. The results have been amazing. What would happen if you listened more to your market? You’ll probably get some ideas from hearing how Laura went about applying what she learned so be sure to pay attention as you listen to this episode.
