Reality Show Creates an Opportunity?

I will have an opportunity to meet Kendra, the star of the E! Entertainment show “Kendra.” It was not meant to be career related…but if you know me, my job is to see the career relatedness in anything! It’s actually an “interview” for a date with her mom!
Turns out, with all of her success, she’s now wanting to find love for her mom–who raised her and her brother single handedly since Kendra was 6. She asked a good friend of mine and matchmaker, Julie Ferman (CupidsCoach.com), to set her up with “a few good men” to interview to find someone to meet her mom. CareerGuy is going to be interviewed!
