Welcome to Episode 85 of Building My Legacy.

In this podcast, we talk with marriage and family counselor Dr. Caroline Iscovitz who also works as a coach for female entrepreneurs. Caroline shares with us what she has learned about the importance of fostering our relationships, the biggest challenges facing working couples today and the role relationships play in building and growing your business.


As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to create economic uncertainty, it’s more important than ever before to look at your relationships and to focus on what’s in your control. The most successful businesses will determine how to pivot so that they can continue to stay in business and perhaps even grow. As you move forward in your career and build your legacy, it’s critical to be aware of what happens to your relationships, how you can foster them and how they can add purpose to your life.


So if you want to know:

  • The four-step process that can help you deal successfully with relationship issues
  • Why journaling can help you decide what’s best for you, your family and your business
  • What’s wrong with “putting things on hold” in a relationship
  • Why active listening is such an important part of good communication
  • The importance of acknowledging that your feelings are valid and learning to face them
