Posted by Kelleher International on Dec 23, 2016 7:30:00 AM

shutterstock_530310358.jpgOne of our clients recently wrote to our matchmaking agency in a complete panic: he had been on two dates with the woman of his dreams. She was smart, shared his passion for business and the two of them even supported the same charities. They had been at the same fundraiser the year prior and didn’t even realize it! The problem came when his date mentioned that her birthday was coming up – that weekend.

Mum’s the Word: Keeping Your Personal Life Private

Posted by Kelleher International on Jun 3, 2016 8:19:55 AM

Everett Collection / Shutterstock.comEveryone has an opinion about something. Your mother has thoughts on your clothing choices, your siblings have ideas about where you should live, and your best friend wants to weigh in on your dates – but what happens when thousands of people also want to voice their opinions on your life?
