I found the secrets of relationship success, whether it’s at home or at work, on the farm!
Yes! Believe it or not,these secrets are what I learned from years of careful study and observation growing up on our family farm in Northern California and then working professionally for decades training animals and their people. With a lifetime of observation to call upon and a lifetime of experience to test my theories.

The secret of success and being happy in my life were not complex; they weren’t even “modern.” The secrets, it turned out, were Mother Nature’s all along and were being practiced with success in the Animal World all around me.

I share with you here these secrets and how to use them in your daily life. You will not find them anywhere else.
