Drs. Susan and Phil Robison of CoupleBiz work with couples in business who want to prosper and with people and organizations that want work-life balance. Partners on and off the ballroom dance floor, the Robisons were pioneers in living a "dual career lifestyle" before this phrase or any role models existed. For thirty years, they have danced the dance by combining two separate work lives and two businesses together with the joy of raising their daughter, Christine, a marriage researcher and graduate student in family studies. Their audiences benefit from the insight and wisdom of their successful marriage, their business partnership and combined 40 years as marriage therapists.
The Drs. Robison both received their doctorates in psychology from Ohio University in the early 1970's and waltzed into their first careers: Susan as a psychology professor and Phil as a hospital psychologist. Since then, they have choreographed several other career steps. In their latest professional number, Susan and Phil own CoupleBiz and deliver seminars, keynotes, and business consultations to people who want to blend prosperous work lives with extraordinary relationships.
The only psychologist husband-wife team consulting to couples in business together, the Robisons show their clients how to make the business-couple lifestyle choice profitable, productive, and fun. Business couples include those who own a business together, those consisting of a sole proprietor and staff spouse, and those who may share a home office housing different businesses. They also coach dual career couples to balance work and life within the framework of their challenging lifestyle choice. The Robisons inspire their clients and audiences with an optimistic model of how ordinary people can combine work and family into extraordinary lives.
Through CoupleBiz seminars and consultations, couples develop the knowledge, skills and tools to create more harmony, fun, money, and love. Based on the CoupleBiz Life Management Program, their presentations include:
- Secrets of Couples Working Successfully Together,
- The Art of Blending Prosperous Work Lives with Extraordinary Marriages,
- My Boss Works Me Too Hard; Oops, I am the Boss,
- Stop the Treadmill, We Want to Get Off: Work-Life Strategies for Dual Career Couples.
