How I Created My Successful Speed Dating Business and What I’ve Learned Along The Way

I just got off the phone with Kimberlyn, one of my excited customers who recently purchased a Match in Six Speed Dating Kit. I’m so glad we spoke, because I was able to get some amazing feedback that I’m sure When I first learned about Speed Dating itself, I had no idea to host an event, much less what I needed to make sure everything ran smooth. I did 2 years of research, what I like to call: “speed dating business hunting” all over the internet and the city. Information in 2005 was scarce on the topic, and I was basically left on my own to create what I was looking for. will make each kit much better and even more useful for my customers and their guests. As I hosted my very first stand alone events, I overlooked things like parking, printing costs, city permits, and experienced a lot of heartbreaking disappointments and loss of cold hard cash. I remember it like it was yesterday. I spend my last $100 on printing full-color flyers it took me 3 days to design. It was the day before the Independence Day Parade, so my strategy was to hang all my flyers and posters downtown on light posts, poles, and buildings to help get the word out for my event. It took me nearly 4 hours to finish. I remember the exhale I took as I stapled my last flyer on a tree nearby one of the popular downtown pubs. I was relieved and proud that I’d finished my job and really put everything I had into marketing this event. Later I attended...
Our Speed Dating Kits

Our Speed Dating Kits

                                  We’re  so proud to say that we’ve had much success with helping others create amazing speed dating events with out Speed Dating Kits. The kit comes with just about everything you need to get started with hosting and planning your own events. It all started when I was doing my own research back in 2005 on how to put together a singles speed dating event. I searched high and low for anything that would help me with my event, but I found NOTHING! Once I got my events started, learned everything I could, and began hosting successful events. I decided it was time to share my knowledge and help others with the areas where I once struggled. I knew there had to be other’s out there who wanted the information that I gathered. So, I decided to start creating speed dating kits for anyone looking to get a boost in the industry. Each kit includes a timer, a horn, table place cards, instructions, speed dating host script and so much more   We sold our first speed dating kit in June 2012, and it is still very exciting each and every time we get an order.

We’ve sold over 3 dozen kits since 2012! Our goal as a company is to continue to listen to our customers and improve our products, service, and...
Single During the Holiday Season

Single During the Holiday Season

Being single is not all that bad, unless dating season is over or coming to an end and the Holiday Season has arrived. As we all know, the warmer months are great for being single and dating; there is plenty to see and do in the company of a love interest. However, the goal is to find someone to spend time with all year around, not just during the peak season of dating. In case you are wondering, dating season officially begins on Feb 15th, the day after Valentin’s Day and ends November 1st.   If you are starting a between the Holiday Season and Valentine’s Day it can be a bit complicated, especially when it comes to exchanging gifts, meeting family, or bringing in the new year with someone who is not reached that special place in your heart just yet.  A good rule of thumb is less is more when you’ve met someone new during any one of the holidays. A card with thoughtful words is a good start. If you feel compelled to do a bit more, or really like the person, dinner and a nice bottle of wine or champagne will do the trick. However, if you are single during the holidays (one of the worst times to be single of the year because everyone is with their significant other, sharing love, gifts, and holiday spirit) remember timing is everything. So use the off dating season to reinvent your look, give back & volunteer, study a new language, hit the gym, work on your 5-year-plan, or discover new places in your city (who knows, you may meet...

Perfect Night Out

Perfect Night Out

White Oak Kitchen & Cocktails is a new restaurant located in the heart of downtown’s thriving Central Business District.  Adding a slice of southern comfort into Atlanta’s restaurant scene, the southern chic restaurant caters to a professional crowd where people can mingle in a smooth, relaxed and modern atmosphere. Signature dishes and cocktails feature “Top Chef” ingredients crafted from fresh fruits, earthy herbs, and sexy garnishes. I recently dined at White Oak Kitchen & Cocktails (WOKC) with friends.  We started off with salads. The Pressed Watermelon Salad had a very unique flavor.  It was topped with Corn Bread Panzanella and on top of the cold fresh lettuce were peeled Bouchard Farms Tomatoes, Cerignol Olive Vinaigrette, and New Herbs.  If you like mushrooms, you should try the Warm Mushroom Salad with grilled Radicchio, House made Beef Jerky, Semolina Streusel, topped with Tangy Pimento Buttermilk Dressing. For appetizers my friends and I shared the Sugarcane Roasted Quail Breasts with house made Pancetta, bread and butter onions, griddled Brioche, Tallegio, and Agrodolce, which was something I had never tried, but It tasted amazing. The Quail Breasts were seared and seasoned to perfection, and very succulent. It’s a perfect dish for sharing and maybe feeding your date.  We also shared the Pimento Cheese, a creamy Sharp White Cheddar spread on a crispy wafer stacked between Fried Green Tomatoes and Crushed Plant. The City Strawberry Jam made this appetizer one of my favorites. White Oak Kitchen & Cocktails knows a thing or two about frying a bird.  For dinner I recommend the Caramel Fried Chicken which has Pickled Vegetables, their perfect Pan Gravy, and a side...
