Today we have a double topic. Guys always think that money is a big deal to women; being rich will solve all of your girl problems; it will get you the quality girl you are looking for. But not being rich is basically an excuse of many guys, and it could potentially be yours.

What we're looking at today is the world of high net-worth individuals. What is a high net-worth individual? It's someone who has over $1 million on the side that he can invest in financial assets, or whatever. So, beyond their living expenses - everything like that - they have a $1 million budget on the side. So, we can pretty much say that's rich.

We're also going to be looking at matchmaking, which is another tool for meeting women. We've looked at things like cold approach, we meet girls in bars and clubs, or during the day in coffee shops, absolutely anywhere. We've also looked at warm approaches, which is like social circles (building a social circle and meeting women that way). We've also looked at online dating. We have not looked at matchmaking, which is of course where a service matches you with a person they feel is ideal for you. It's not like online dating, which is kind of like the self-serve matchmaking. It's someone actually working to help you and match you with the ideal person in a database, even searching for people at times. So, we're going to learn about this and maybe you'll figure that's a relevant you can use and will fit with you. Let's see.

Today we have Amy Andersen as a guest. She's the head of Linx Dating. It's a company she founded 12 years ago, which matchmakes eligible and high net-worth individuals in Silicon Valley. Obviously, there's a lot of money in Silicon Valley and that's why she's focused on this area. So she's got 12 years of experience helping rich men meet the women of their dreams or the women they're really looking for serious relationships. She has very specific experience, which is why I asked her to come on the show to talk about these two topics.

In matchmaking, she's arguably has one of the top-end matchmaking services that she runs. She also has a lot of experience helping guys specifically who are rich and with their challenges. So let's see if their challenges are like yours. There really isn't much difference between the challenges of a rich guy and your 'average Joe' with an average income.
