Episode 1: Duana Welch, Ph.D. on the Science Behind How Men and Women Relate

Today's interview is with leading love and relationship expert, Duana Welch, Ph.D.

This woman is incredible and I just loved how she was able to apply her expertise on love and relationships to the workplace. I also think you're really going to enjoy hearing her incredible career journey (a story she has never publicly told before) from tenure-track professor to solo-preneur. Not only is she dynamic and enthusiastic to talk to, but she's got a warmth and kindness about her that is quite unique and inviting.

Duana (pronounced DWAY-nah) Welch is known for using social science to solve real-life relationship issues.  After earning her Ph.D. in psychology in 1998, she began coaching clients who want more love in their lives.  She is the author of Love Factually--the first book that uses science rather than opinion to guide men and women through every stage of dating--and also contributes to Psychology Today and eHarmony.  She taught psychology at Austin, Texas universities, the University of Florida, and Cal State Fullerton. She resides in Eugene, Oregon, with her husband, daughter, and assorted critters, where she continues to teach and see clients. 

After a breakup neither dark chocolate nor the charity of friends could console, Dr. Duana (DWAY-nah) Welch had the epiphany that transformed the way she lived her love life, leading to verifiable, objective answers to her questions—and yours.  The only fact-based book to take men and women from before-you-meet until you commit, Love Factually blends heart, soul--and science. In a genre long on opinion and short on proof, Love Factually puts all the evidence in your corner for the most important and daunting task of our lives: finding and keeping The One.

Love Factually is available in paperback, audiobook, and e-book at Amazon, iTunes, and other major retailers; you can get a free chapter and learn more at lovefactually.co.

I hope you enjoy.
