Entrepreneurial Couples:
Making It Work at Work and at Home

Caught in the squeeze of trying to maintain two careers in today’s tough corporate climate, more and more couples are giving up their jobs in order to start their own businesses.

Whether they work together in a business or are each owners of a separate enterprise, these entrepreneurial couples face a daunting task–balancing the competing demands of love and work. “The couple bond is a significant element in the success of entrepreneurial businesses,” says psychologist and business consultant Kathy Marshack in Entrepreneurial Couples. “Not only do these partners negotiate with each other for love, sex, status, and support, but they also depend on the relationship for their own self-definition.”

Out of Mind—Out of Sight:
Parenting with a Partner with Asperger Syndrome (ASD)

Author Kathy Marshack, Ph.D., takes an honest look at the unique issues that come up when you’re co-parenting with an “Asperger partner.” It’s a tough assignment because for the “Aspie” (ASD) parent so many of the interactions within the family circle, that require empathy, are literally out of mind – out of sight. This is essential reading for the Neuro-Typical (NT) parent to learn more about “Asperger Syndrome” and find a way to co-parent, co-exist and even thrive within the “Asperger”/NT family unit. Author Kathy J. Marshack, Ph.D, is a licensed psychologist with more than 33 years of experience as a marriage and family therapist, and a parent of a daughter with AS.
