Meet Brian Belefant of Spouse Hunting
So, I got divorced… well, starting about nine years ago. My ex really enjoyed the process and kept… inviting me to join her in court, where she would present her interpretation of reality and me and herself. Anyway, long story short, I got me some trust issues.
So I wasn’t in a place where I could jump into another relationship.
Instead, I paid attention to being a father and working on my career and myself.
And every time I would work with someone buying or selling a house, I’d figure out ways to make it go better, things I could do to help them figure out what they really wanted and how to go about getting it.
Whenever I’d work out a process or a system or a rule, I’d write it down.
After seven or eight years, I was finally over the scorched earth campaign my ex waged. And I thought a lot about it and decided that yes, I wanted to have someone else in my life.
So one day, I was driving my daughter to school –– I guess she was 11 –– and we were talking about relationships and friendships and how to tell whether someone is truly a friend or if they’re just somebody whose company you enjoy and it hit me. These same rules might work for finding relationships.
So I went through them all and holy crap, they all lined up.
That’s when I decided to write a book.
It’s never a smooth road, but what’s cool about this one is that every setback is actually a lesson.
I’m an author. I wrote this book based on my experience as a realtor as well as my experience as a guy dating.
Success to me equals joy. Joy comes from making a difference in people’s lives.
