1. Working successfully with your spouse without getting divorced:
For some couples, the very notion of working together is tantamount to romantic suicide, but the practical necessities of doing this are often dictated by the terms of doing business. And basically a lot of business and life partners, have to work together just to get the business off the ground. Louise and her husband William, have done the same – and it nearly ended in disaster. For them, there was no guiding mentorship upon which to call. They found they literally had to write the book themselves. So, based upon 'The Invisible Partnership: How to work with Your Spouse Without Getting Divorced', Louise is able to offer highly researched and sought-after information that has stemmed from great business gurus to the down-to-earth case studies that have been a part of her mentoring experience. She is able to provide the guidance that can help a struggling partnership through the seemingly insurmountable difficulties and bring them out into an inspired and invigorated world.
2. Women in leadership:
It’s the twenty first century and it would be a foolish man indeed who would dare to say that women are not just as capable of running a business as men are. But, there are differences in the way men and women function Women think differently. They tend to react differently and they face obstacles differently. Louise helps recognise the ways in which women can be better entrepreneurs and leaders by identifying their strengths and weaknesses.
3. How to revolutionize your business by taking 3 months off:
All work and no play, make Jack and Jill very dull, dissatisfied and unfulfilled people indeed. Working 24/7 (or what seems like it) at the business end of the spectrum has been the plight of many business owners.

She is bold and innovative in showing how business owners can get out of their ways of thinking. Her passion to help them transcend their self-limiting beliefs is unbounded.
