In her book Dr. Marshack examines the traps entrepreneurial couples can fall into and offers practical advice for dealing with them. For example, entrepreneurial couples with a full family life have greater potential for breakdown in communication than do other couples. They often fail to confront issues head-on, instead relying on compromise and other avoidance techniques to ward off conflict. "Decisions arrived at through compromise seldom last," say the author. "Compromising about your business can sabotage your competitive edge."

How does a couple balance intimacy with family life and meaningful work? Dr. Marshack shows how to assess strengths and weaknesses in each area of your life, improve communication with your partner, develop flexibility, and reexamine priorities, offering a new way to design and live a more balanced, integrated, and meaningful entrepreneurial life.
