Thank you to my client, Maureen, for allowing others to read about her amazing self-love transformation through my “Love Life Makeover” program.

What does your car say about you when you’re dating? The best qualities of your ride can speak volumes, but certainly not as loud as the worst qualities of your vehicle.

Luxury auto experts and neophytes alike understand the cache and value of a BMW or Mercedes hood emblem, but it’s not like you need to buy (or rent) a Ferrari to make a good first impression.

So, when putting your best foot forward for the next date, focus more on these not-to-dos rather than the to-dos. (more…)
