I make a cup of espresso and name my Director of Matchmaking in New York. It’s 11 a.m. EST so she usually has some shopper and date updates from the night time earlier than. Contemplating we’re each talkers, this name normally goes longer than I even have time for, however c’est la vie. We speak every thing from dates to the newest success tales to shoppers who’re studying about themselves via the method.
9 a.m. to 10 a.m.
If I’m fortunate, I hop onto my Peloton bike for 30 minutes and take Cody’s Groove class.

Between children and work, I don’t have a lot time for exercise courses so shopping for a Peloton bike was the most effective funding I ever made. Submit exercise I take a (fast) bathe, throw on a straightforward costume (and flats ― undoubtedly not heels) and I’m out the door.
10 a.m. to 12 p.m.
I head over to Rose Cafe in Venice to begin my espresso conferences with potential matches for my shoppers. With every assembly, I’m assessing if this individual may very well be appropriate with certainly one of my shoppers. These conferences aren’t any joke. We dig deep.

We as soon as chased a man from Chipotle all the way in which to his condo to provide him a card (in hindsight, that was in all probability unlawful). Protected to say I don’t stay your common “married with children” life.
