I want to start off by saying that I am a fan of the show. I wanted to have Patti help me, mainly to find true love, but also to see what kind of woman Patti thought I should be with. I have trouble meeting women on my level, who have a similar amount of drive and are at a similar level in their careers. When I say "on my level," I don’t mean to imply that some people are better than other people. I have been at all levels of financial success and I have found that as a millionaire, I have a certain way of relating to the world around me. I speak about my possibilities in a positive way, I am able to do the things that I want to do, and I am able to see that hard work and a positive attitude really do pay off in the long run. It is because of this mindset that I find it difficult to relate to people who do not believe in their possibilities. People often joke with me, that since I’m a hypnotherapist (SteveGJones.com), I can hypnotize any woman to fall in love with me. That's simply not the case.
Patti is amazing at what she does. I know that statement might come as a shock to some people who view her as mean, rude, etc. I don't view her negatively at all. I realize, as a person who also helps people change their lives, that sometimes tough love is the shortest distance between two points. In other words, it is the fastest way to get a client from where they are to where they want to be. I think that Gary, who is the other millionaire on the same episode, got the brunt of her lashing. I had a fairly smooth working relationship with Patti. Everything she said made sense, so I just followed her advice and took to heart the words that she had to offer about my past. Gary, who has since become a good friend of mine, bucked the system a bit and she had to get more forceful with him.
