We are authors/speakers who help busy couples stay happily married for life.

Tell us about yourself

We had the desire to strengthen marriages and wanted to do it in fun and creative ways. We are known as "Marriage Edu-tainers," educating through music, comedy, and entertainment. We host Celebrate Your Marriage Conferences and Ultimate Date Nights and conduct online marriage coaching.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Losing our staff during COVID, but being able to pivot to get us through the pandemic even though we gather people together for a living.

What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?

Change. Change in the needs of our customers. Change in the delivery system of how we get our message out. Change in attitudes toward marriage.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

  1. Do what you love.
  2. Find good people to partner with.
  3. Give more than you get.
