In December, I did something I’ve never done before: I offered a scholarship to work with me for 12 weeks. The winner would receive all my products: Why He Disappeared, Believe in Love, and Finding the One Online, as well as a FOCUS Coaching membership, professional photography, an online dating profile written by me, and 12 weeks of recorded hourly coaching. Applications poured in – over 100 of them – and I announced the winner right before the new year: Maria O from Florida.
It’s always risky making something that is inherently private into a public spectacle, but Maria is so enthusiastic about working together that she offered to document her process, including all the ups and downs. I have no idea whether I’ll look good or she’ll look good; all I know is that we both really want to help other women, and we’re hoping that showing what it’s like to get dating coaching inspires you to take action in your own love life this year. Without further ado, here’s what Maria wrote about her first gift, a professional photographer to take her online dating profile shots.
Hope you’re having a wonderful time with your family on the Holidays. I’m sending you an update of the photo shoot and a link for a video I took when we were done. Feel free to make changes if I didn’t write something right. Once again, thanks for the opportunity to work with you. 🙂
It was great to have my friend Jason with me, he made me laugh, making funny comments behind the photographer and most important he helped me pick the best pictures from a man’s point of view. 🙂
This week, I wrote Maria’s profile after she filled out my e-Cyrano questionnaire and I’m looking forward to sharing her reaction. Stay tuned ’til next Friday…
