OPW INTERVIEW - Oct 7 - Shellie hunt is a success coach with her own reality TV show called ‘remake my life.’ She concentrates on empowering women, and has created the dating site OM Dating. - Mark Brooks
What is your goal with starting an online dating site?
Being a single woman myself, I think the real goal was being able to fine like minded people, that not only were in the industry or around circles that I was in but also were causal, driven by a higher purpose. People that understand higher purpose, people who are outward focused. Does this person volunteer for certain things? Do they own non profits, participate in non profits? Are they more globally minded?
How do you promote it?
Initially there were campaigns that we did inside workshops, seminars, retreats. All different types of works in the human potential industry. We marketed it in a place where like minded people could come together. But it is very exclusive. OM Dating isn’t something that anybody can come on to. OM is very exclusive with their members. There are certain questions we ask. For example: What’s important to you as far as your integral values?
What do you not like about other online dating sites?
It’s like looking for a needle in a haystack and I think when you can make the haystack smaller and more refined then it’s easier to find partners.
Now you’ve got a number of single events listed on the website too.
Yes, there are a number of events listed for people who wish to apply for OM dating. It definitely gets you out of your own back yard. Many people there travel and are worldly. If we only stay in our own backyard its difficult, if you broaden it then there’s so many different options.
The difference is these people are actually taking action, actually engaged. It’s the difference between successful people and unsuccessful people. We take action and we’re engaged.
