Wouldn’t it be great to know what your woman wants ? How outstanding would it be if you were four steps ahead and always had an edge in your relationship? When I speak of edge I speak of your edge as a man, being a better husband to your wife, better partner to your partner, better father, better provider and protector. I am not speaking of a “competitive” edge over her.

Let’s face it guys, your wife is your biggest source of inspiration, drive and sense of purpose. She can also be the biggest pain in the neck, drive you…


Have you ever felt stuck in a decision, a moment or a meeting where you just couldn’t move forward with as much certainty as you’d like?
