Getting Personal — And FINALLY Doing What You Told Me To Do
If you can’t watch this video right now, you can read the blog post below.
So, on most days, I’ll share advice and strategies for having a great relationship or dating life.
Well, today is going to be a bit different…
You see, today is my birthday (I’m 37, for anyone curious about this…).
And, last weekend, I was spending some time with my wife and baby daughter and some other family who were visiting from out of town.
And it really had me thinking about how much my life has changed, just in the past year (since becoming a dad), let alone the several years since I’ve been helping people with relationships and dating.
And it caused me to actually think about where I want my life to go and what I want to do moving forward.

Thinking More About the Future…
Of course, having a baby has been a huge shift in my life this past year, but now that I’m settling back into things after the initial “shock” to my life and adjustment period of becoming a dad has passed (the transition to life with a baby is an unimaginable change! — as anyone out there with kids can probably confirm), I’m left thinking about the future.
I haven’t really talked about this, but around the beginning of this year, I decided to expand the reach of our business, the Modern Love, to impact more people.
That’s why I’ve been doing a lot more things to interact with more people, such as:
- Replying to more comments on YouTube
- Doing live broadcasts almost every weekday on YouTube
- Doing interviews with other channels on YouTube
- Starting up my podcast again
- Posting more on our Facebook page
- I even started an Instagram account, though, admittedly, there isn’t much going on there right now.
…Among many other things.
Sure, as a business owner, I’ve always put in work to grow and improve my business.
But things have seemed quite different over the past few months.
I don’t know… Maybe it’s because I’m sensing that summer is creeping up fast… Maybe it’s because I look at photos of my baby daughter from even just a few months ago, and I’m shocked at how fast she’s growing (and it has me thinking about time)… Maybe it’s because I’m in my “late 30’s” now (It seems like I just turned 30 yesterday!)… Maybe it’s because my wife and I have been thinking about what we want our lives to look like as a family, now that we’re finally settling into a good rhythm with our daughter.

…But this definitely FEELS very different.
I’m absolutely committed to serving you and helping you have a great relationship and connection with whoever you choose to be in a relationship with.
And it is absolutely heartwarming to get success stories from people who I’ve worked with over the years who have gone on to get married or start families with people who were just inaccessible to them before.
In truth, I can’t take credit for these people’s success, since they obviously did all the work, but to think that I may have played some small role in the process is very humbling.
And I’ve been honored to help people on their journey toward love.

(The Infamous “But”…)
There is one very BIG thing that needs to be addressed, that I’ve been holding back on.
I’m considering stepping into the discomfort and do this, even though it would probably be a LOT of work and take me away from other projects.
But I think it might be time.
And I’m going to need your help and advice on this along the way too.
Anyway, that really BIG thing is…
