Why Successful Matchmakers Need Self-Care in 2018

February 2nd, 2018|

Every year, when we make plans for our business, there is always focus on client retention, marketing hacks for maximum business growth, and ways to improve the business side of our brand. However, there isn’t as much focus placed on self-care. We may decide back in January that we will make this a priority but right around this time, it tends to take a back seat. The thing is, it may not seem like that big of a deal as a matchmaker or dating coach. You may think you have more flexibility in your day or you love what you [...]

January 2nd, 2018|

As a matchmaker, your goal is to help people find real love - a lasting relationship that’s fulfilling. But what happens after? Often, once we help people find that perfect match, we don’t always know the best ways to coach them through the beginning stages or how to approach road blocks that come with every relationship.

The highest percentage of divorces are filed in January! Yep. And January is right around the corner. (Gives a whole new meaning to “New Year, New You”, right?)

3 Gift Ideas for Your Business This Holiday Season

December 5th, 2017|

We know that the holiday season is one of the best times to connect with family and friends, wear your favorite festive outfit to a party, and drink some eggnog (or insert your favorite December pastimes). It’s also a time of gift giving to let the people we love most know we appreciate them. And when we give gifts, it impacts our overall wellbeing, as well. Increasing production of dopamine, serotonin, and oxytocin in the brain will - quite literally - boost your mood. One of the easiest ways to get that “happiness high” is by giving to others. But [...]
