Times are tough all over, especially in the service industry. Business has never been slower for me, so it's time to reexamine and possibly expand my list of services.
No, not like that, you pervert.
By now, nearly everybody's read at least one article about wingmen services. If you're not familiar, I'll fill you in: a wingman service is an agency that provides you with a partner in crime for a night out. This person's only job is to approach other people on your behalf, with the intent of helping you get a date with them. Wingmen pull others into your conversations, get phone numbers, and make you look good. The average price for such a service is--get this--$50.00 per hour. Yikes, huh? An initial consultation is generally required to better serve the client's needs, then the two of you hit the bars or the parties or whatever it is you've decided is the best means to get you
Wingmen services offering female companions are now far more popular than those offering males. The reason here is obvious, isn't it? I would feel much more at ease if I was approached by a woman in a bar who wanted me to meet her friend. Being hit on while I'm out with my pals is usually a nuisance. I'm there to socialize and meet new, fun people; not to worry about impressing someone or, worse yet, having to endure pick-up line after pick-up line.
That being said, I'm adding Image Consultation (read: Wingman) to my list of services, right next to Personal Shopping. I've helped more than a few friends with their wardrobes and hairstyles, and I've set plenty of them up on dates. Have I ever mentioned my love connection success stories? We're talking marriages, here. Let's not leave out the fact that I've worked in the women's fashion industry on and off for the last 11 years. If there's anything I know how to do, it's sell something to another woman. Oh, and here's the really awesome part: I'll charge my regular hourly rate of $25.00, which is half the price of the wingman agencies. Minneapolis doesn't even have an up and running agency, anyway. So call me and we'll go find the love of your life. Or whatever you're looking for.
