When the news first broke that the 4th Season of The Millionaire Matchmaker was going to be filmed in NYC, some of my colleagues said to me "Jordan, you GOTTA go on the show!" I was both excited and nervous at the idea of putting myself out there on national television. I figured the upside of talking about my company (http://MeetTheFamous.com) and the possibility of Patti helping me with my relationship flaws in hopes of finding me a "match" was too big of an upside to turn down.
I've always been a big fan of Patti's and was hoping she would be able to work her matchmaking magic on me. For those of you that are skeptical of Patti and her matchmaking skills, I can tell you this -– SHE IS AMAZING! Everyone puts so much emphasis on her not having a filter and saying some very uncomfortable things to people. What people don't focus on (which I witnessed first-hand) is how good she is at reading people, seeing their flaws, and working on ways to improve them.
When I first met Patti, the cameras were rolling. She is EXACTLY as she appears on TV. She either loves you or hates you (there's not much room in-between). Being a CEO, I'm always making decisions and calling the shots. In this instance, I knew Patti was the expert here, and I had to just swallow my pride, listen to her advice (both positive and negative), and work on improving my flaws.
The biggest area of concern Patti had for me was my ADD and my inability to give girls the attention that they deserve. I went through some exercises to improve my body language and communication skills, as well as agreeing to (gulp) put away my cell phone for my entire Master Date!
