The #1 Thing I Learned After Interviewing Successful Singles as a Headhunter and Helping Singles Find Love as a Matchmaker
Where it all began.
I just celebrated the 15th year anniversary of my company Success Match. I started my career in recruiting and headhunting and what I learned about many of the successful professionals I interviewed and what I learned about helping them achieve success in their personal life may surprise you.
I'm going to share what it is and why it matters to you.
After interviewing thousands of professionals, I discovered one common theme.
When I interviewed them I didn't only ask, “What did you study?” “Where have you worked?” and “What skills did you gain?” I also asked things like, “What are your passions in life?” and “What’s your personal situation?”
I discovered that there were many professionals who were successful in all areas of their lives except for the most important area--love.
At the end of the day, they came home to empty apartments. They had no one they could count on for support and affection. They had no one to celebrate life with and it was costing them their happiness.
Many singles were afraid of ending up alone, with the wrong person or never having the chance to raise the family they’ve always wanted. And what most singles deeply desired more than anything was to be in a committed, loving and fulfilling relationship.
Can you relate?
To love and be loved is a basic human need.
People do not thrive without love. You can have all the money and success in the world, but without love, what is the meaning of it all?
At the time I was a headhunter, I was already happily married and had my first 2 children (I have 3 now). I saw an enormous need for people who didn't have a partner in their lives.
This inspired me to start my matchmaking business to help successful single professionals realize their dream of finding love. To help singles professionals become as successful in love as they are in the other areas of their lives.
Before starting my company SuccessMatch, I did a market study and conducted hundreds of interviews with single executives, and I asked them what they felt they needed and the overwhelming response was they just needed to “meet the right person.”
They all wanted to be set up on dates, or so they thought.
That made sense to me at the time. Successful professionals, men and women alike, are very busy, and more often than not they don’t want to date someone at work.
So I gave them what they wanted. I organized lots of dates and although some of my clients ended up married or living together, the percentage of people who actually ended up married or in a lasting relationship was very low.
I soon realized that singles need more than an introduction.
Just providing my clients with dates was not enough. I dove into learning all that I could about dating and relationships. I was coached by the top experts in my field. I invested hundreds of thousands of dollars in getting the best training, programs, mentorship, and guidance.
I became a certified science-based dating and relationship coach and a master executive certified matchmaker and completely transformed my program from just setting up dates to a more holistic approach to helping my clients find their life partner, and here’s how:
My goal is no longer to provide singles with x number of dates in x number of months.
My goal is to help my clients transition from where they are today, to in a happy, fulfilling, lasting relationship with the right partner.
I help successful single professionals find life partners. I do this in a holistic way, based on 3 pillars of my signature methodology: Being, Finding and Choosing the right partner.
I now have an almost 100% success rate matching my gentlemen clients with the right partner, and my coaching program Find Your SuccessMatch with women has an 85% success rate.
This boutique approach is high-end, high-touch and highly successful. Like my clients, I’m very selective about who I work with. And if there’s one thing I know to be true, it’s this:
In order to find lasting love you must first be the right partner, before you can find and choose the right partner.
Remember: love is not by chance, it’s by choice.
And if you’re ready to choose love, then I’m committed to helping you find it.
What’s the biggest struggle you’re having right now when it comes to finding the right partner?
