Lisa Clampitt (LMSWCC,MSW)
My path to becoming a matchmaker was not direct. I had always been great at setting up friends, but thought nothing much of it. After getting my Masters, I worked as a social worker for over twelve years until I made the leap to the love industry. It was only because I happened to see an ad in the newspaper for matchmaking that it finally all clicked for me. I knew instantly helping people find love was my calling.
My matchmaking company VIP Life was born in 2001, and in 2003 in an effort to create a more specific community full of resources and training opportunities for the matchmaking industry, I co-founded the Matchmaking Institute, the first institute offering a professional matchmakers trade association, matchmaking workshops, and a yearly world-wide professional Matchmaking Conference.
In today’s fast paced life, we engage experts to help us be the best we can be in all areas of life. We hire an accountant to complete our tax forms because most of us don’t know every tax deduction or new tax law that is beneficial to our unique situation. We hire a real estate agent to help us find a home that fits our exact requirements. How else would we know what houses are available? Yet I find people feel reluctant in seeking help when it comes to the most complicated and pleasurable aspect —our love life.
I have witnessed great sadness and isolation in people who feel they just can’t find someone who is right for them. They have tried looking in bars, going to parties and even searching online to meet that special someone… with absolutely no luck. I have seen people lose hope, convinced they will never find or experience the love of a lifetime that they so desire.
As a professional matchmaker, I am here to tell you that I have seen and helped people who felt love is impossible for them--find the impossible. Love does have the power to transform your life. I have seen it happen time and time again. And it is available to everyone!
The Reason I Became A Helping Professional
I love love and always believed that you should never be alone if you don't want to be. People operate at their all time best if they have a happy, healthy, supportive and respectful partner in their life. It’s a commonly known fact that people are more productive at work, healthier both physically and emotionally, live longer and thrive in all areas of their life if they are involved in a mutually loving, enriching relationship.
I believe that I have dedicated my life to making people’s dreams of finding true love become a reality. It isn’t magic—it takes insight and deep understanding of yourself and the choices you make each step of the way. Nobody teaches us how to do this. Yet we somehow believe we should be our own expert in the romantic arena and feel ashamed if we fail. So it’s no surprise that we flounder in our search for love.
With a qualified professional at your side to offer you insight, honesty, and constructive feedback you can gain the insight into yourself, your partner choices and actually start on your path to finally being successful in not only finding your true love but making sure it is one that will last a life time.
I am also very inspired to help people open successful matchmaking businesses and have trained over 500 matchmakers around the world. There is no job more fulfilling than a career in the matchmaking industry!
