Patti Stanger (Replay), The Millionaire Matchmaker

For today’s Summer Friday Replay I just had to bring back Patti Stanger, the Millionaire Matchmaker. I have a guilty pleasure. And that guilty pleasure is an entire channel… known as Bravo. From the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills to Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. Patti is the star and executive producer of the network’s hit series “The Millionaire Matchmaker” currently in its eighth season. If you’ve never watched the show Patti connects high net worth clients with women seeking love. The idea being that busy successful men don’t have time or the wherewithal to really make a meaningful connection on their own… And she flips it sometimes, too. I’ve watched her match millionaire women with men… and she’s also connecting same sex couples too, which is wonderful.

What I admire most about Patti is her business savvy. She’s an experienced third-generation matchmaker. She founded her company, the Millionaire’s Club, in January 2000 and 15 years later it boasts more than 100,000 members available for its clients. Prior to launching this business Patti served as the Director of Marketing for Great Expectations, one of the oldest dating services in the United States. Early in her career, she spent 10 years in the fashion industry.

Patti is also an accomplished author, columnist, radio show host and recently getting into the wine and spirits industry.

Some takeaways from our time with Patti:

  • How not listening to people actually helped propel her career
  • How a $300 pair of jeans when she was only 12 years old was her ‘Aha’ moment
  • Prosperity game Patti plays that helps achieve prosperity — it involves writing yourself blank checks!

If you would like to learn more about Patti, visit or follow her on Twitter @pattistanger. Her show airs on Bravo Sundays 10/9 central.

I must say, while the entrepreneur life comes with its own set of doubts and risks, I wholly enjoy the many, many extraordinary opportunities I get to experience.
