For as long as she can remember, Trenia Norford has always been in love with love. So whenever she gets the chance, she helps people find their significant others in a world where many individuals are looking to make connections that will last them a lifetime.
Through her company Connectricity, a highly professional and personalized boutique matchmaking firm, Trenia has helped singles enjoy the dating process and get the results they desire in a short period of time.
Since 2012, Connectricity has catered to relationship-minded single professionals nationwide.
Proving That She Can
Before Connectricity, Trenia had a career in the publishing industry and later transitioned to finance. But after giving birth to her first child, Trenia craved for a greater work-life balance where she can do something that she’s passionate about without having to leave her child to a nanny.
Eventually, she realized that her passion for helping people find love can be the answer to her problems. As a result, she decided to turn her hobby of helping people connect into an actual business. Thus, Connectricity was born.
But leaving her corporate career where she stayed for 20 years wasn’t easy. She first had to prove to her husband that she was capable of making something lucrative out of her hobby.
Through hardwork, determination, and an innate love for what she’s doing, Trenia proved that she has what it takes.
“I have worked with hundreds of singles over 10 years with an 87 percent success rate. I define success as someone entering a long-term committed relationship as a result of my introduction,” she said.
Finding Her Work-Life Balance
Now that she runs Connectricity, Trenia has found the work-life balance that she needed to fulfill her duties as an entrepreneur, matchmaker, wife, and mother.
With her time on her hands, Trenia gets to be there for her two sons at the beginning of the day by preparing them for school. She’s also present to pick them up after school and attend any after-school activities.
But between 9 AM to 2 PM, Trenia attends sales calls, virtual and in-person client meetings, the matching processes for clients, collaboration efforts with fellow matchmakers, and team meetings.
“I regularly collaborate with international matchmakers to help find matches for their clients and vice versa,” she said.
She ends the day by helping her children get settled for the night, spending time with her husband, and showing love for herself so she can go to bed well-rested, fulfilled, and happy.
