Who Is Ken Donaldson and Why Is He Qualified To
Write Marry YourSelf First! and Give Me Advice on Relationships?
Great question and I’m so glad you asked! With all the “experts” out there giving advice on relationships and relationship issues, you might be a bit skeptical. You should be because being skeptical is both normal and healthy. You and I both know there are literally thousands of people – “these experts” – claiming they can help fix marriage problems and solve relationship issues.
Yes, I too am one of those experts, but let me help you figure out this maze by introducing myself further…
I’ve been in the coaching and counseling business with my own practice and with several agencies and programs since 1986. My primary focus has been helping people with their relationship issues and marriage problems.
My credentials include:
  • Board Certified Licensed Mental Health Counselor
  • Board Certified Addictions Professional
  • Board Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist
  • Master Certified Relationship Coach
I’ve been in private practice since 1993 and during those years I’ve worked with thousands of individuals, couples, families and businesses. I’ve developed materials, strategies, tactics and tools which have guided these people, families and businesses to be happier, healthier and more successful. I’ve also written hundreds of articles giving practical advice on relationships and how to create more successful relationships at home, at work and in the community.
I’ve delivered over 1,200 presentations on numerous topics, including: Relationship success principles, overcoming marriage problems, resolving relationship issues, and winning the dating after divorce game.
So here’s the deal: Whenever you invest in a product or service from someone claiming to be an expert on marriage problems or relationship issues, make sure they have the experience and the credentials to back it up!
In 1993 I went through a gut-wrenching, heart-breaking divorce (not good when you’re “the relationship guy”!!). Since that definitive time in my life I’ve turned the entire focus of my business to prevent unnecessary relationship issues and resolve marriage problems.
I’ve also noticed some other very troubling trends over the last 20 years:
  • More people are getting into unhealthy, unfulfilling and highly dysfunctional relationships even faster than ever before, possibly due in part to internet dating and its “high-speed romance” and even faster crash and burn.
  • More and more dissatisfaction with one’s chosen work. Some reports claim as high as 80% of the U.S. workforce isn’t happy with the job they go to every day!
  • Higher rates of depression, anxiety disorders and addictive behaviors. Our “mental health” in the U.S. is far from healthy!
Are these all relationship issues? Yes!
They are all relationship issues people are having with themselves!
Even though I’ve been able to provide relationship advice and guidance to many, many lives, families and businesses, I also began to realize there were millions of people who didn’t have access to the materials, resources and tools which have changed thousands of lives.
One day, a few years ago, after reading about several high profile relationships (with innocent children involved) which unnecessarily crashed and burned, I yelled,
“ENOUGH ALREADY!!”
In that moment I had an epiphany: I suddenly realized that I had to take all the advice on relationships I was giving out to my clients, and somehow make it all available to the masses who were crying out for it.
And that’s when I decided to write Marry YourSelf First!
Now people around the world can access this information anytime they want. The people I’ve seen who’ve used the Marry YourSelf First! tools and resources have had huge shifts in their relationship choices (much healthier), their mood (much more positive) and their overall level of happiness in life (off the charts!).
But, don’t just take my word for it.
