New Relationship Insights Reveal...

"How you can talk to your partner or spouse about anything without fear
about how they'll react or what they'll say, think or do"


It's a fact...

With these simple, yet powerful ideas, you won't have to keep your thoughts, feelings or what's important to you inside any more.  With what you'll learn in "Stop Talking On Eggshells," you'll finally be able to talk about anything (especially the important stuff) without either one of you shutting down or getting upset. When you apply this new information, you'll also feel more understood, loved and more connected than you ever thought possible.

Dear Friend,

We're Susie and Otto Collins and we'd like to ask you a few questions about your relationship or marriage...

Are there any issues between you and your partner that you "just don't talk about" out of fear of what would happen if you did?

Are there times when you wish you could just talk things over without having a big argument or blowup?

Do you ever feel distant, disconnected or alone because of your (and your partner's) inability to truly communicate with each other?

Do you wish you could both just put down your defenses and walls and give each other the love you both really want?

Are there ever any times when you "hold back" and just do whatever is necessary to keep the peace in the relationship?

Do you ever "go overboard" and go out of your way to do things you may not not necessarily want to do to please someone in hopes of making things in your relationship go better?

If you answered YES to any of the above questions, you are not alone.

Being able to speak the truth openly and honestly in a relationship, along with feeling heard and understood, are some of the biggest challenges that most people face today.

We call it... "talking on eggshells."

What does it mean to "talk on eggshells"?

When we use the phrase "talking on eggshells," we're talking about those times when you feel that you can't fully say what it is that you want to say for whatever reason (mostly out of fear about what the other person's reaction will be.)

If you're someone who's ever felt like you were talking on eggshells with anyone in your life, believe us when we say that this is normal and almost everyone does it from time to time.

The problems begin when you feel like you are talking on eggshells more than just occasionally and there is pain, disharmony, distance and upset in your relationship because of it. You may not realize it yet but by talking on eggshells, you are actually taking yourself away from the love you really want.

We know what that is like to talk on eggshells and here's what we can tell you...

When it comes to love, communication and connection, the two of us have found out the hard way in our own lives that talking on eggshells is a lousy strategy for getting what we want in our relationship.

How do we know that "talking on eggshells"
won't help you create the kind of
love and relationship you really want?

This is something we both tried (unsuccessfully, we might add) in our previous marriages and it's also something we've seen time and time again in the people we've worked with personally in our relationship coaching practice, in workshops, presentations or those who purchased our books and courses.

At this point, the two of us have been together for quite a few years and have a truly wonderful connection and relationship. We enjoy each other and being together, but believe us when we say that we didn't always have the relationship and communication skills that we now have.

Long before we started working with people about their relationships and prior to our relationship together, we had both come out of long-term marriages. Susie was married to someone else for 30 years and Otto was married to someone else for over 15 years.

In our own ways--ways we'll describe in more detail later--we both talked on eggshells much of the time, especially in the last years of those marriages.

Although Otto's ex may have a different perspective on what did or didn't happen in their marriage, as Otto looks back on it, he remembers trying to play the nice guy, bending over backwards and doing whatever it took to please his now ex-wife. He kept things inside that should have been talked about, not wanting to "rock the boat" and just trying to keep the peace. Talking on eggshells for him never worked. It only served as a place within him where resentment and anger lived and grew.

Susie's experience with her ex-husband was both similar and different. Over the 30 years they were married, they gradually drifted apart until they didn't have much in common with each other.

In the later years of their marriage, although they still loved one another, they found that they were watching what they said to each other and there were times when they just couldn't say anything right. They just didn't understand each other any more and wanted different things out of life.

When the two of us came together, we carried those harmful talking on eggshell patterns with us into our new relationship. The two of us had to learn how to be and act much differently if we were to create the kind of love and relationship that we really wanted.

We took a look at how things were going, took a look at our previous marriages and realized once and for all that if we wanted to create a closer and more connected relationship and have it stay that way, we had to change what we habitually did. We had to reverse what wasn't working in our relationship.

Luckily for us, we figured out that talking on eggshells, being afraid to say what was on our mind, not being willing to share our thoughts and feelings and not communicating authentically were all things that were going to destroy our potentially wonderful relationship in almost no time at all if we didn't stop. We had to change.

The importance of communication in creating
a great relationship or marriage

Communication in relationships is a funny thing...

And as you probably already know, communication is arguably the most important skill to cultivate, learn and grow if you want to have outstanding relationships.

If you've got some communication issues you need to work out in your relationship, it shouldn't come as a surprise to you if you just think about it.

After all, we aren't taught how to communicate or how to have a good relationship.

No one ever taught us how to "be" or "act" so that our relationships would work out great--and stay that way.

In most cases, our parents didn't know (their relationship was most likely filled with challenges too) and you certainly didn't learn about how to create a great relationship in school. Your friends probably weren't any better at relationships than you were!

Fast forward months or years later and here is where you find yourself...wanting to be able to say what's going on within you or what's important to you and you feel stuck, confused. You're wishing your relationship could somehow be better.

What we have discovered is that if your communication is strained or non-existent, you're most likely on your way to a relationship full of upsets, anger, judgments, assumptions, conflicts, misunderstandings, drama and pain.

If you have a partner, co-worker, family member or friend who's closed to you (for whatever reason), we don't have to tell you how much distance this can create between the two of you and how much of an emotional and physical drain this can be.

With this kind of a drain, it makes it difficult to connect and have any kind of true cooperation, closeness, connection, or intimacy.

On the other hand, if your communication flows and you are both open to each other, even when it's not easy, you'll be amazed at just how incredible your relationship can be.

The right way and the WRONG way to communicate
if you want to have good relationships in your life

Most people get it all wrong when they figure out that withdrawing, retreating, pleasing, backing off and in general "talking on eggshells" isn't working and here's why...

At some time in their relationships or lives, most people come to a breaking point within themselves and decide "Hey, I'm not going to be timid or shy in my relationship any more. I'm going to say what I think or feel, whenever I think or feel it."

This is a bad idea.

After working with people on their communication and relationships, we've found that after they give themselves permission to speak their truth, open up and stop talking on eggshells, they do a complete one-eighty.

They start doing the complete opposite of what they're going to want to do in order to create more closeness, connection and harmony in the relationship.

In fact, many people go so far to the other side of the spectrum after they decide they're not going to talk on eggshells anymore, they become angry, demanding, hostile, belligerent, forceful, grandiose and superior in regards to how they talk to and treat other people.

They might think-- "I've been a wimp in my relationship for too long and now I'm going to show everyone I'm not going to take it anymore."

Acting in this way will perhaps make you feel more powerful, but it certainly won't help you create the love, intimacy and connection in your relationships that you really want.

This will take you in the opposite direction, away from what you want.


Here's what we suggest you do instead...

The "Magic Key" to communication in relationships
 that leads to more closeness and connection ...

If there is one thing you can do, starting right now, that will help you begin making dramatic changes for the better in your relationship or marriage, it's this...

Spend all of your time, effort and energy in your relationship focused on creating what you want instead of what you don't want.

This sounds so simple but most people (and couples) don't do it.

Many people spend the bulk of their time and energy blaming, judging, criticizing, manipulating, trying to prove their "righteousness" and making their partner wrong that they lose sight of the real goal in relationship and focusing on how to create that.

What happens next for most couples is usually one of three things:

~They decide to do what it takes to draw closer together

~ They stay stuck in their positions and decide to leave the relationship totally and separate or divorce


The third thing that frequently happens is what most couples choose to do when conflicts, disagreements and challenges come up--

~ One or both of the partners decide that they don't want to fight anymore and so they withdraw from the conflict enough to keep the relationship going. But in the process, something tragic happens...

In their attempts to just keep the peace, not "rock the boat" and keep the relationship going, one or both of the partners starts "talking on eggshells." Before you know it, the passion, life and energy just gets sucked out of the relationship and leaves them wondering "What happened to our love."

In our opinion, one of the most important things anyone can do to create a closer and more connected relationship is to learn how to "Stop Talking On Eggshells" and start communicating to connect.

But how do you do this?

We've just created a brand new course that will give you everything you need to know in order to stop talking on eggshells and start connecting with your spouse or partner in a whole new way.

Our new program is called "Stop Talking On Eggshells" and it includes a guidebook and 6 audios that will add additional insights and distinctions to what you will learn from the manual.

"Taught Me How To Communicate More Effectively With My Mate..."

"Stop Talking On Eggshells is an excellent tool that will influence couples to understand each other's reasoning for 'talking on eggshells' instead of just shutting down.
Your info taught me to communicate more effectively with my mate in order to get the love and affection that I need and deserve instead of just walking away from the relationship. It also showed me what to look for and how to end the cycle of 'the dance' in a relationship--the pulling forward and negatively pulling backward in a relationship.
Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to embark on this journey with you. I know that 'Stop Talking on Eggshells' will be a blessing to many."

"This should be required reading before marriage,
just like a blood test!"

"Over the course of this week I have read, then re-read, your newest and in my opinion, your finest book,  'Stop Talking on Eggshells.'  I say that because it touched a cord I wasn't expecting; at times moving me from chills, to recall and then to tears.  Your clear writing, methodical flow, and personal insight spoke to me.  I felt as if I was the focus of your writing and that you were speaking personally to me; listening, affirming I was not peculiar, while offering suggestions of hope.  Unfortunately, I did not discover you earlier to save my marriage; however, I am convinced by practice that your methods do work!  My sincerest thank you for showing me I can have the relationship that I want and deserve!"

You really hit the mark this time.  Your writing was clear, succinct and flowed beautifully.  This should be required reading before marriage, just like a blood test!"

"I have no doubt that this book
will prove invaluable..."

"I was one of the people fortunate enough to receive an advanced copy of Stop Talking on Eggshells, and I've been absolutely delighted with what I've read thus far.  As a spiritual and life coach, and also as a busy woman with a large group of friends, colleagues and family members, I have no doubt that this book will prove invaluable. 

"I love the honesty and thoughtfulness with which this highly practical information is presented.  The writing style is clear, concise and without frills, yet delivered in a very warm and compassionate manner.  I especially love the questions at the end of each chapter, and find them extremely helpful in allowing me to become more aware of my thoughts, feelings and what actions are necessary to assist me in moving forward fearlessly and with conviction. 

"The real-life examples are also very helpful.  Many thanks for such a thorough and wonderful book... the next time I find myself talking on eggshells, I'll have a great reference guide to gently remind me of how to get myself out of that pattern!  What a reassuring thought, indeed!"
Many thanks!
