I am absolutely so excited to say that I am opening a matchmaking company. I have done a lot of soul-searching this year which led me to this decision. Funny some people may ask what made you want to be a matchmaker well I’ve been in the salon industry for the last 27 years, so I’ve heard every relationship story that you can imagine. There are times where my clients are husband and wife and they’re both cheating on each other and neither one of them knows it but I do! I’m the one that sees the woman with tears rolling down her face telling me that her husband of 30 years still looks and flirts with other women and makes her feel not loved. I remember those moments thinking this is me. I’ve spent 5 years, then 10 years, 15 years and over 20 years in a relationship where I did not feel loved and where I felt as if it was a one-sided relationship to a man that I loved with all of my heart. I tried for so many years to please him to be a perfect wife and mother until one day I woke up and decided to leave. I was turning into someone I didn’t like , I was changing right in front of my eyes because of the loneliness I felt for years. I would see women who are beautiful and successful widowed or divorced , or just miserable , And have no idea where to start , I would say go to a dating site talk to a bunch of people, their response would be it’s not trusted, you don’t know if they’re real, you don’t know their background, I even had one client get ripped off for $200,000 from a man who she thought was real, but after talking to him for months and him milking her for all the money she found out he was a scam artist.
I started to get a little burned out on the hair industry but felt I still needed to do something for people as I feel I have a very strong intuitive connection with people. I thought to myself what can I do where I can still make people smile every day and really help change their lives.
After all of these years being a hairstylist I did it because I loved to make people feel beautiful and help them through the hard times. I was their hairstylist and their psychiatrist lol. And there are days where it really weighs on your heart but at the end of the day I know I make a difference in their lives and I love every minute of it.
So one day I asked myself, Michell if somebody gave you $100,000 and said open whatever business you want, what would it be?? I really thought about this for several days and out of nowhere I thought I want to be a private matchmaker to help people meet the person of their dreams, as I did! So I applied for a business loan and here I am so excited to start this journey! Talk soon!
