Tripped Up in a Partnership

Jeffrey was dating a great woman he was really into, but he tried to play it cool and not show his emotions. In turn, she withheld her feelings as well and ultimately she moved away and the relationship ended. Now he realizes that if he had just slowed down and been true to his feelings he could have avoided this disappointment.

The “DUH” moment that changed your partnerships forever

Jeffrey was really into the woman he was seeing, but she was not reciprocating. The signs were there. Why was he always having to chase the women he was interested in? The DUH was if he is true to his own sense of self he will get his needs met and not need to chase.

Proudest moment in partnership

When Jeffrey and his partner, Vanessa, did whatever it took to spend the weekend together in Montreal. It wasn’t easy of convenient, but it was so worth it. It was a Victory Moment in their relationship.

Current Partnership that Has You Excited

His partnership with Vanessa and the life they are building together both personally and professionally. It is a 1 + 1 = 10 scenario.
