Helping Entrepreneurs and their Intimate Partners succeed at both love and business

Hi, I’m Lorena and as a Mentor, Coach and Writer I help the LOVE relationship of Entrepreneurs and their Intimate Partners succeed despite the demands of the BUSINESS.

Building a business and a thriving committed relationship at the same time is HARD!  I know because I’ve been there myself. I’m an expert couples’ therapist turned writer, mentor and coach who’s run three businesses over the course of twenty plus years of marriage.

And I can tell you…

  • Both are demanding
  • Both require time
  • And, the success of one at the expense of the other is not an option

After going through my own tough times with my partner and working with couples for over fifteen years, here’s the most important advice I learned…

Fail to Plan  =  Plan to Fail

And I mean it.  If an entrepreneur has a business plan why shouldn’t you and your partner have a relationship plan?

I call mine the

Agile™ Relationship Plan

Here’s how it works.

The Agile™ Relationship Plan you create together…

  • Increases your chances of success by having a shared VISION.
  • Helps you both enjoy the wins of the business and work through the losses.
  • Improves communication because you’ll both appreciate the “Why” of the business and “How” it should look.
  • Understands your relationship is the number one investor in the business but neither can succeed at the expense of the other.
