Do you ever feel like your relationship is not going as strong as you want it to be?
I’m talking about your loving, intimate relationship with your partner.
"As we progress in life we typically see that our careers and finances tend to stabilize but the other parts of our lives may be falling apart."
And these parts of your life are usually your health situation, your loving relationship, and the fact that you are running out of time.
We are the Foolish Couple. I am Minna, and this is my husband Andy. In our blogs we mostly guides you on the 3 things in life that you cannot buy, even if you have an unlimited supply of money. And those 3 things, are health, love, and time.
We’ve been together for over 3 decades and over the last 30 years, we’ve had our ups and downs. But we have also figured out a lot about what keeps some couples together while others fall apart. So today, we are going to kick start a series on loving...
Today’s topic is one that is close to my heart and it is one of the biggest problems that couple’s face. This is true for both new couples and especially old couples that have been together for a long time. The single biggest mistake that puts a wedge in a couple’s relationship is arguments. Specifically, unresolved arguments.
Hi, I’m Andrew from the Foolish Couple.
For decades, all I remember about my parents are their arguments. Throughout my childhood, I don’t think there was actually a single day that my parents did not have a fight. What they fought about was always something very trivial. But as a kid, I thought that it was normal for couples to argue all the time.
The fighting, arguments, and the bickering never stopped until more than 4 decades later. And that was when my dad’s Parkinson’s got some bad that we had to put him into a senior assisted living home so that he can get the proper nursing care that...

We are the Foolish Couple, Andy and Minna. We believe that healthy relationships start with health and our goal is to help people achieve true health and healthy relationships through nutrition, exercises, mindset and lifestyle.

Not only do we all wish to have a longer life, but we all want to live a Happy, Healthy Life. Modern medication has advanced to the point that your life can be extended by many years, even when you have chronic, degenerative diseases.
But how will your quality of life suffer if you depend on medication and medical treatment to stay alive? Will you still able to fulfill your...
Hey hey We are the Foolish Couple. I am Andrew
And I am Minna.
We are the founders of the Foco Academy, business consultants, health coaches and success mentors. We help people like you to achieve success in health and relationships.
This week we’re actually on vacation, visiting the beautiful Vancouver British Columbia so we’re keeping this one casual.
Recently I’ve got a comment from someone that I worked with, and she actually told me that I am the happiest person she’s ever met. And that got me thinking. Why am I always happy? Why are we happy?
And it actually took us a while to come up with these 5 things that makes us happy, and we believe that these 5 things is the foundation to pretty much everyone’s happiness. And these are actually pretty simple things that anyone can do. So let’s get started with our first thing.
The first thing that makes anyone happy, is, GRATITUDE.
You may have heard this before, you know, Oprah praising the...
Hello, I am Minna from the Foolish Couple, founder of the FoCoAcademy, business consultant and transformation coach.
Last week my husband Andy talked about the 5 ways on how a man can be a better husband. And he’s got a lot of response and comments from, well, a lot of women, wives, and they loved it.
So this week, I’m going to flip this around, and talk about the 5 ways to be a better wife. Now I’m not saying I’m the perfect wife. In fact, I’m pretty far from it. But my mistake is a lesson for you. And, well, I’ve made a lot of mistakes.
When we first moved from Canada to San Francisco, he had just sold his business and I had just landed my new consulting job here. So he became the househusband while I went to work.
And throughout my career, I’ve worked on many different projects for companies of all sizes and a wide variety of industries. One thing that is common, at least...
Hi, This is Andrew from the Foolish Couple. We help couples achieve healthier relationships through nutrition, exercise, mindset and lifestyles.
Hey, So I get asked this question so many times, I decided to make a video about it. The question is how can I be a better husband? In this video, I will share with you the 5 ways you can be a better husband and partner.
The other day we went out for dinner with a bunch of friends, and we went to this Chinese restaurant where we would eat family style. And we ordered a whole bunch of food. We started off with an Asian chicken salad, and then roast duck, vegetables and so on. And there’s also freshly steamed prawns and spicy crab.
Sounds yummy right? Well, both Minna and me love it too. Minna, my wife, is good in a lot of things, but she has no clue how to eat seafood. She is a little OCD so she hates peeling the shell off the prawns and she has absolutely no clue how to eat the crab unless someone takes out the meat...
We just celebrated our 30 years since we first went out on our first date. It brought back so many memories on what led up to how we met and even certain secrets we didn’t know about how we met until now.
For instance, Minna did not know that I hacked into our computer class with my best friend to get her phone number and address. She was always surprised how I got her phone number, now she knows.
I did not know that the romantic poem she sent to me anonymously was a dare and that she didn’t actually even write it, one of her best friends did! What a good laugh we got finding out 30 years later.
It’s been an amazing 30 years together and we still have that gleam in our eyes and smile every morning when we get up and we can’t wait to see each other again in the evening if we are apart doing our own gigs… Over dinner we will talk about how our days went, the funny things that happened and any challenges we encountered...

Most of our reading materials are more educational or informational. Magazines wise, we read the Success Magazine, Dr. Oz’s The Good Life, Women’s Health, Eating Well, amongst others. Books wise, most are on personal development. The Success Principles, Blue Ocean Strategy, How Not to Die, etc.
Even during long commute times, we listen to the likes of Tony Robbins, Tim Ferris and other podcasts.
If these sound BORING to you. Well, that’s OK.
But, my guilty pleasure? Well, I’ve read all 7 books of Harry Potter, The Twilight series, Hunger Games Trilogy, and, of course, 50 shades of Gray.
Steamy? Yes. Intimate? You Bet.
But I have also picked up a thing or two that has nothing to do with the sexuality.
To quote Christian Gray, in the first book, during his interview by Anna, he was questioned on how he attained his success:
Anna: ‘Maybe you got lucky’
Christian: ‘The Harder I work, the...
Don't want a boring, expensive, disappointing Valentine's Day? This year, have your Perfect Valentines Day!
Once a year, lovers around the world celebrate their love together, through various gestures, mostly dinner, gifts, travel, or whatever they desire. Whatever is 'Their Thing'. Lovers strive to celebrate their Perfect Valentines Day.
I love Valentine's Day, because it is the day where me and my husband first started dating. That was 29 years ago and I remembered that day clearly as yesterday. That feeling, the connection between us, the 'future' that I saw with him back then. I remember.
Every year we celebrate our Perfect Valentine's day. Like most couples, we chose a nice restaurant for dinner. Eating well is a big thing for us. It is 'Our Thing'. And of course, gifts, cards, kisses and hugs. And other unspeakable things (wink!)
Does it ever get bored? mundane? disappointing? HECK NO!
Every Valentine's day is a Perfect Valentines Day. Because we decided that it would be...
