How To Build a Successful Marriage (5 Strong Marriage Tips)

Today I want to share with you how to build an EPIC marriage and avoid divorce.

But wait a second–

How the heck am I qualified enough to talk about this stuff?

Sure, I’m married… but I’m not a marriage counsellor or a therapist.

The truth is: I’m not “qualified”. I’m just a guy that has worked through some pretty difficult stuff.

Before my marriage to Renée, I was engaged to another woman.

(Yeah, I bet you weren’t expecting that!)

The whole thing fell apart 2 months before the wedding when she came home, dropped the ring on the table and said.

“I can’t do this anymore”

I thought to myself, “How am I so good at business… but so freakin’ BAD at relationships?”

Something had to change.


I’ll give you more backstory in today’s video, but these are the 5 tips that I SWEAR by, and that helps make my marriage to Renée the most fulfilling part of my life.

I was never naturally gifted at anything.

I was the ADHD kid at school that always got in trouble, and no-one was expecting that I would succeed.

My parents divorced when I was a teenager…

Despite feeling like the odds were stacked against me… I decided I was going to become a great partner, a great husband and a great father.

No-one was going to stop me… ESPECIALLY not my own damn self.

If I became good at business by seeking advice, finding mentors, feeding my brain with books, and always finding ways to improve myself — then it was time to do the same for relationships.

An epic marriage does NOT happen by chance.

You work for it.

It’s 100% worthwhile, and this video is how I’ve learned to be the best I can.

I’d love to know if these 5 tips resonate with you.
