My friend, have you found yourself feeling overwhelmed by the expectations placed upon you as a husband? Are you feeling as though what’s expected of you as a husband has becoming very foggy, and confusing? If so, you’ve landed in the right place. Maybe you’re at a place in your own marriage where things don’t seem to be going well. Maybe you’re fighting more with your spouse. Maybe you’re having less sex. Or maybe you’re just less satisfied than you’ve ever been. Or maybe, you’re one of many men who have ended their marriage, and hope to learn the tools and skills to be successful for another go around. This book provides a clear and actionable roadmap to help you gain clarity on how to be a successful husband. And not just any husband. Black Belt Husband is a journey about becoming badass in marriage. You’ll discover the twelve character traits necessary to be successful as a husband. All of these character traits are timeless – they’re the same qualities that our fathers and grandfathers bestowed to us. But they’ve been modernized to fit with the changing complexities of the 21st century. This book holds the keys you need to unlocking a great marriage. It outlines the “How” and “Why” to becoming an irresistible husband, while recognizing you can, and need to, hold on to your inherent masculinity that is deep within your bones. You will not only divorce-proofing your marriage. You will begin to walk the path of being truly happy in your marriage, and truly happy with yourself, as a man.
Men in their 30s and 40s, who are married, educated, professional but love the idea of being a tough martial arts hero.
Book cover type
Simple design with clean, modern fonts. The cover should feel traditionally masculine. Dark colors. It's also important for designers to know that the term "Black Belt" specifically applies to Brazilian Jiu jitsu, and not Karate, Tae Kwon Do, or other martial arts. Since the book is a parallel to BJJ, any art needs to be reflective of that, and not other martial arts. They're really different!
What to avoid
Stock photos that make it easy to identify the subject’s race. Also, please avoid stock photos of white guys in karate uniforms. Stock imagery price must not exceed US $49.00
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Book cover starts at $299.
