Today we’d like to introduce you to Michelle G.
Michelle, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
Becoming an entrepreneur was an accident. I come from an immigrant mother who always told my siblings and I to avoid debt, be great at your job, and be a good citizen. My mom always told me to dream big and that I could do anything I wanted.
I wanted to be the first woman president of the United States, so I decided to join the United States Marine Corps after graduating high school to start my journey toward the White House. Then, I met a young man, fell in love, and got married. My life (and my goals) were about to change in the name of Love. Although my career as an Intelligence Analyst was thriving with special assignments, international affairs, and foreign policy, my marriage was beginning to crumble.
We tried everything to make our marriage work, to communicate better, and to try to save what we could, but in the end, we filed for a divorce. That experience changed my life because it revealed to me my life’s purpose. It was at that moment, I decided I wanted to use my 13 years of military intelligence and international diplomacy experience to help people be successful in their love lives. Within 15 months of that decision, I launched Michelle G with the mission of helping professional and high achieving singles thrive at love.
I’m a lifelong learner so making the decision to go back to school and earn my Bachelor of Science degree in Social Psychology wasn’t a question. As a result, I also achieved certification through the American Psychotherapy Association with the designation Certified Relationship Specialist, CRS®. I’m determined to use science and data to figure out how to help people achieve healthy and fulfilling relationships. After all, love is the oxygen to our souls and one of the most powerful superpowers we each have inside.
Our company was founded back in 2013 with the goal to help clients restore and maintain healthy relationships through couples coaching. Couples were so happy with their remarkable results that they began referring us to their single friends who needed help finding love. At the same time, the online dating world was exploding giving us the perfect opportunity to help singles find lasting love through the use of cutting edge technology. Now, years later and hundreds of happy clients later, we strive to become one of the most trusted matchmaking services for singles. Though our company has evolved, we’ve never lost our focus in helping clients achieve and maintain healthy relationships.
Has it been a smooth road?
Whenever you choose the path least traveled, it can be lonely and with many unexpected bumps along the way. My road hasn’t been smooth, but with every bump or bruise, there was always something great that came out of it.
One of the things I struggled with initially was in the area of business structure. I didn’t realize how much I was used to having a structure in the Marine Corps. As a startup, it became apparent that I needed to set up a structure to my day and to create processes on how I did repetitive tasks – but I didn’t know where to start.
I was a “one-woman show” for a long time, and there weren’t enough hours in the day to do it all by myself. To cope with the chaos of life as a startup entrepreneur, I went back to my military training and created a mind map of everything in my head. Once I cleared my head, I started to see the gaps and the plan that I needed to create. Additionally, being a “lone wolf” is never smart when you’re starting out, so I joined a mastermind of women to help me grow in this venture.
The second challenge I faced was in having productive sales conversations. Although I had extensive exposure to diplomatic negotiations during my time in the military (which resembled a version of selling), the techniques I used there were different because the goals were to influence long-term results.
My job was to represent a powerful brand (the Marine Corps) that has established credibility since 1775. The difference as an entrepreneur is that when you’re first starting out, you’re the one selling yourself and you have no credibility until you do. So, what did I do? I enrolled in a sales training program to teach me this invaluable skill set.
So, as you know, we’re impressed with Michelle G Matchmaking & Coaching – tell our readers more, for example, what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
A little bit about our company history. Our company was founded back in 2013 with the goal to help clients restore and maintain healthy relationships through couples coaching. Couples were so happy with their remarkable results that they began referring us to their single friends who needed help finding love. At the same time, the online dating world was exploding giving us the perfect opportunity to help singles find lasting love through the use of cutting edge technology. Now years later and hundreds of happy clients later, we strive to redefine the transactional nature of dating into one of vulnerability and honesty. Though our company has evolved, we’ve never lost our focus in helping clients achieve and maintain healthy relationships.
What do we do? We are a matchmaking and life coaching company focused on helping professional singles remove any obstacles that prevent dating success. We accomplish that by either introducing you to your ideal partner or coaching you on how to attract it.
What do we specialize in? We work with clients in two ways:
For those men and women who are busy (executives, VPs, CEOs, lawyers, politicians, etc.) and either don’t have the time to date or are tired of online dating and not meeting quality people, we offer our Elite Matchmaking Services. Think of us as your real estate agent, but for your love life. We headhunt, recruit, and scrub potential suitors on your behalf before introducing them to you.
We also recognize that matchmaking isn’t for everyone, so another program we offer clients is Date Coaching. This program is ideal for men and women who are dating but not having success in attracting the right type of partner or for someone who needs help with crucial dating skills such as flirting, body language, conversation, effective communication, and confidence.
Every person is unique and has her own story to tell, which is why before working with us, we offer a consultation to learn more about the needs of our clients and provide them with our recommendation on what service would help them reach their goal.
What are we known for? What sets us apart?
What makes Michelle G Matchmaking and Coaching different than other matchmaking and relationship coaching companies is our science-based approach. We call it Love Psychology. Our proprietary methodology helps singles find love and thrive. We’re not interested in short term results. Instead, we’re fully invested in our clients’ long-term happiness. Everyone within our team is a professional and has a college degree in their area of expertise.
Other matchmakers and dating services bash online dating because they don’t understand its power, the same power other social media platforms use to influence change and find new markets. People use online dating tools to either find a hookup or find lasting love. The goal is to find like-minded people to meet and connect, just like on Facebook or Instagram. Beware matchmakers or dating coaches who bash online dating apps. They’re not going to offer you a full range of options to address the challenges in your love life. We understand online dating; we master the tools and we use them on behalf of our clients to achieve their desired outcomes.
Let’s touch on your thoughts about our city – what do you like the most and least?
Miami was one of the first destinations my husband and I vacationed in and we fell in love with Miami. Although I’m not originally from here, I love how much of a true melting pot Miami is. The vibrancy in the art, music, and food is something like I’ve never seen in any other place making it really The Magic City.
