Today we’d like to introduce you to April Davis.
April, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I grew up in a small town in Northern Minnesota, I always dreamed of moving to the city and making it big in business. After earning my Master’s Degree when I was 20, I began working for a Fortune 500 doing Finance and Process Improvement Consulting.
My passion had always been Matchmaking. I always played Matchmaking within my friend group. Whenever I met someone who was single, I would naturally start thinking of who would be a good match for them. I always wondered why so many of my girlfriends were single – they were all high-caliber women, beautiful inside and out. Many of them were just unable to meet a man they truly connected with, but that didn’t mean there were no good men out there!
I had a knack for matching, so, while still working for the Fortune 500, I decided to follow my passion and start LUMA- Luxury Matchmaking. I employed 3 full-time employees and was making good money at the Fortune 500. I was able to start my company with no financial backing, which made breaking my back worth it. Eventually working both jobs became too overwhelming, it felt like I was doing harm to the Fortune 500 by staying. I didn’t feel like I was valuable to them, which was extremely discouraging.
It was detrimental to my company’s development to make the jump and fully commit. I would be more productive if I just worked one job and I could afford to leave, so I did. I was a little apprehensive about taking the jump. Working for a company gave me a security blanket, but what’s the point of slaving away for something I wasn’t pouring my heart into. My family and friends were supportive and reassuring, they were excited that I wanted to pursue a lifelong passion. I’ve never been one to quit, the thought of failing pushed me to keep going.
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
The beginning was a little rocky. I was determined to start my company without any outside financial support, which meant long hours at the Fortune 500. After a few grueling years of working both jobs, I was finally able to leave the Fortune 500 and focus fully on my company.
