Our War EP 11

Powerhouse couple they may seem, but who really are Mick and Claire when it comes to their relationship as a husband and wife? This episode gives us not only a glimpse of their past, but it also gives us a clearer view of who they are and how they came to be the people we now know. Every relationship has its make or break moments. How we react and go through those moments determines our future course. Find out what happened during Mick and Claires time of WAR, how Mick overcame not wanting kids, and what courage it took Claire to stay in the relationship despite every negative thing that happened.   If you cut the rope in any aspect (marriage, family or business) you always have the opportunity to tie it back together. It takes work...but it can be that the 2 ends are even closer than before. -Claire Olinik     Like the podcast? A little karma goes a long way!
