THE MODERN TROPHY WIFE
The words “trophy wife” paint a picture of model- like arm candy whose main attribute is her incredible beauty unmatched by her mate. In the past, powerful men searched for the trophy wife to accompany their wealth and prosperity – and their wives intellect and interests were irrelevant.
Thankfully, our culture is seeing a shift in the ways women define domestic and professional success, and two experts on human behavior are here to empower women on how to reach their goals while thriving at home, and do it with style. The “Modern Trophy Wife” dares to want more, and gets it!
In “The Modern Trophy Wife: How to Achieve Your Life Goals While Thriving at Home” psychiatrists Dion Metzger M.D. and Ayo Gathing M.D. redefine what it means to be a trophy wife in the twenty-first century and welcome all women to their inner circle, imparting wisdom and medically sound advice on being confident and well-balanced. As board certified psychiatrists, they inspire with guidance on developing deeper relationships, better life balance, and happier homes.
“Our advice promotes not just relationships but complete body and mind wellness from a doctor’s perspective,” says Dr. Metzger. “Unlike dating gurus, we are truly experts in this field, having years of training in human behavior. We help educate women to achieve balance and prioritize their life, de-cluttering what’s distracting so they focus on what makes them happy”.
Powerful, inspiring, and relatable, The Modern Trophy Wife provides practical wisdom addressing the myth that women are either a mom or a professional, and how to find happy work-life balance.
