The One Thing to Remember When Dating a Celebrity

Posted by Kelleher International on Jan 22, 2016 7:33:10 AM

Amal Clooney, human rights attorney and wife of actor George Clooney, recently granted NBC her first American interview. In it, she revealed she does not actually consider herself a celebrity. While dozens of paparazzi and tabloid magazines beg to differ, it does raise an interesting point: celebrities are frequently famous without ever having asked for it.

What Steve Jobs Can Teach You About Relationships

Posted by Kelleher International on Nov 13, 2015 7:27:51 AM

“I’m convinced that about half of what separated the successful entrepreneurs from the non-successful ones is pure perseverance.”

-Steve Jobs

 

The Apple Empire dominates the tech world even today, so one can’t help but wonder if Steve Jobs was right about what makes an entrepreneur successful. But what if this same concept was applied to relationships? Our matchmakers believe perseverance is part of what sets successful relationships apart from failed ones. From the time spent looking for that date to the actual hurdles that come between even the closest of partners, cool heads and a lot of patience are necessary to persevere as a couple. Replace the word “entrepreneurs” with the word “relationships,” and you can see how Jobs’ wisdom can be applied in your own life. So, what other love lessons can you learn from the tech visionary?
