Dating & Lifestyle Kickstart Guide in Review

As we prepare for an amazing SXSW and wind down from the launch of the Wingman University Online Membership Program, I wanted to share some quick thoughts on the guide.

Here is a story of a client who really didn’t want to work with me.

I have friends and other people who will tell me they know someone who could use my services. I always appreciate people who will go to unusual lengths to help out a friend. For those who are serious about helping out their friend, I have them bring their friend out to meet me over drinks and something I call, a “reverse intervention.”

Why people who don’t choose to be single stay single?

In over two years of coaching, I’ve talked to hundreds of people about their dating lives and what they think is preventing them from finding someone. I can’t say I’ve heard them all but I’ve heard a lot. After I hear what they think, I ask them one question.
