About a year ago, I was contacted by a guy on twitter named Torrey McGraw (sounds like a country singer, right). At the time, he pitched an interview idea for me to talk in-depth about my company and how (and why) I created it. My gut thought was “who the hell would want to listen to me talk about business?” Also, I didn’t know Torrey from Adam. Could he be trying to get me on live video and do the okie-doke with some gag (this actually happened before…long story)?? But I trusted my gut and trusted Torrey, and did it.
12 months later, Torrey (who has now become a good friend and to my knowledge can’t sing a lick) tells me our interview was one of the most popular ever done on his Grind and Thrive site. Also, to keep it real, I’m very passionate about entrepreneurship (hell, I’m Jamaican, so I have to be). What this interview did for me was gave me the confidence to finally speak up about something other than romantic relationships.
I always loved lectures in school (yup, that’s the nerd in me) but told myself, if I ever hit the “speakers circuit” I would remix it. Well, my time came in early 2010 when I hosted my first event in Washington DC and as promised, I hooked it up – adding a pre and post cocktail party, live band, and audience interaction. Here’s a recap of my Modern Day Matchmaker LIVE tour series!
The following is from anderson.com. I had a great time running around NYC with Jacque!…
Journalist Jacque Reid says she has never dated outside her race. To help open her mind to dating within new social circles, Matchmaker Paul Carrick Brunson takes her to some local NYC spots, where he says she will be able to meet potential men to date — men who share her values.
Take a look at what happened, and see if Brunson was able to open her eyes to dating men of other races…
Flow Dating is my spin on speed dating! I invented it 2 years ago after witnessing how successful speed dating could be but also seeing how terribly boring most speed dating events were. Check out the video below for a full explanation of what flow dating is and catch a glimpse of a Flow Dating event in LA!
