    Red Flags in Dating From a Professional Matchmaker with April Davis

    Red Flags in Dating From a Professional Matchmaker with April Davis

    April Davis is Founder and CEO of LUMA- Luxury Matchmaking. LUMA is a nationwide Matchmaking service serving clients in over 40 states and is now an Inc 5000 Fastest Growing Company.
    April Davis’s career with LUMA began when she realized she needed to take her skill of intuition and understanding people to the next level.  She was always a hard worker, an MBA graduate by 20 working her way up a Fortune 500 company, and also pursuing modeling on the side.  But if there was one thing she knew more than anything – it was how to help people find love. And not just the butterflies and hearts type of love – the real, long-lasting, take-home to Momma, marriage material type of love. 
    April was a Matchmaker for years within her own circle of friends and acquaintances; she just didn’t know that she was at the time.  Whenever she met someone who was single, she would naturally start thinking of whom she might know that would be a good fit for that person.  
    The challenges involved in singles meeting quality matches became increasingly apparent, and it was then that April realized she needed to take her matchmaking from a hobby to a full-time career.

    Here is what to expect on this week’s show:

    April’s movement from amateur matchmaker to making her hobby a career. 

    Strategies can be used to find a successful and fulfilling relationship.

    How people can take care of their physical, emotional, and financial needs while dating.

    Avoiding making blanket judgments or stereotypes while evaluating a potential partner.
