Get Up Nation®! My name is Ben Biddick. I’m the Creator and Host of the Get Up Nation® Show and Co-Author of Get Up: The Art of Perseverance with former Major League Baseball player Adam Greenberg. Recently I had the honor and privilege of speaking with Linda Carroll. Linda is the author of the new book called “Love Skills: The Keys to Unlocking Lasting, Wholehearted Love” from New World Library. Described as “a couple’s workshop in a book,” Linda helps her readers navigate the challenges of intimate relationships. Her first book called “Love Cycles” describes in detail the five stages of intimate relationships and illuminates the behaviors associated with each stage. Here, in this companion workbook, Linda gives us a practical guide for experiencing resilient relationships including exercises, activities, self-assessments, and other tools to gain insight into where they are in their relationship. Linda addresses challenges such as loss of sexual energy, why what once seemed endearing is now annoying, and the many ways family history and personality type can wreak havoc on our relationships. Such a pleasure to present to Get Up Nation®, Linda Carroll! Thank you Kim Corbin of New World Library for connecting us! Linda, welcome to the show!
