Relationship expert Lisa Steadman isn’t a trained therapist, and she doesn’t have any degrees in psychology. But she does have years of personal experience to back up her advice as a dating coach. She didn’t start out as a perfect dater, but every dating misstep was a lesson in what makes a relationship fail or succeed.
According to Lisa’s blog, “I pendulum dated throughout my late teens, 20s, and into my early 30s, vacillating from one extreme to the next. From the asshole bodybuilder to the nerdy Star Wars fanatic to the pothead with money problems to the boy toy with the cool car to the kinky magician who couldn’t commit to… you get the picture.”
Lisa’s own dating history taught her to date with purpose, and now she shares her dating takeaways with single women looking for meaningful relationships. She knows from experience the hardships singles can face and wants to make the journey a little easier. Ultimately, Lisa changed her dating patterns, grew as a person, and now has been happily married for nine years.
To help others go from breakups to breakthroughs, Lisa developed a career as a relationship expert and motivational speaker. Her instrumental coaching sessions and workshops give women the tools to choose the right partner and land in a lasting relationship. She has also written best-selling books full of heartfelt advice for singles getting over a bad breakup and re-entering the dating world.
Lisa focuses on building women’s confidence and inspiring change in all aspects of their lives. Over the years, she has traveled across the country to appear as a keynote speaker, host, panelist, and emcee at packed women’s conferences where her down-to-earth storytelling style brings laughter and insight to audiences.
“I was going through it, too,” she said. “I know from experience how frustrating and heart-wrenching it can be, so I show my clients a better way.”
In her coaching sessions, Lisa works closely with single women ages 35 to 55. Her clients tend to be driven and ambitious individuals seeking guidance in their love lives. Whether they’re divorced, widowed, or never married, this relationship expert can show women what mistakes to avoid and how to take control of their dating lives. She has practiced what she preaches, so she knows it works.
“I’m very much about the school of life,” she said, “and I’m in the trenches with the people I help.”
Lisa offers a variety of programs to support singles everywhere. Her in-depth dating boot camps involve 90 days of online group work and interpersonal discussions. Her Dream Plus Do approach empowers people to reach their relationship goals despite obstacles.
Going beyond dating, Lisa also offers branding boot camps to teach business owners and entrepreneurs to become more magnetic using her trademark four-step process to rocking your It Factor. Many women who graduate from the dating boot camp and go straight into the branding boot camp, so they can become more irresistible in their personal and professional lives.
In inspirational workshops, Lisa emphasizes knowing your value and owning your worth as an individual as the first step to becoming more successful in every aspect of life. Her encouragement, exercises, and insights empower women to get in the right mindset to live their dreams.
“We are so in our own way sometimes,” she said. “I show people that I’m no different than you. All you have to do is dream it, learn it, and do it.”
In 2007, Lisa made a splash in the dating world with her book “It’s a Breakup Not a Breakdown.” Instead of telling women what they did wrong, she wanted to show women the importance of celebrating their newly found singledom and moving on in a healthy way.
She takes the focus off the ex and places it on you — what you can do so you don’t end up in this situation again and, instead, find happiness in your relationships going forward.
“It’s a Breakup Not a Breakdown” was hailed by many as the breakup bible for heartsick singles looking to heal and grow after a relationship ends. As a companion to her best-selling book, Lisa authored a 21-day action plan focused on the actions and intentions of daters. This is a self-help workbook designed for women going through or recovering from a bad breakup.
Lisa has also written books about how to pick the right relationships and where find a husband. You can check out her published works here. In her writing, the relationship expert gives personal advice in a friendly, positive, and accessible way.
“I’m like your best girlfriend who’s a little farther along the path and can tell you how to cut down on your wasted time and emotions when dating,” she said. “I explain how to get out of your head and into action.”
Lisa’s leadership, guidance, and support give single women the tools to heal themselves. She brings clarity to relationship choices and helps inexperienced or ineffective daters learn how to improve in a short period of time. Many women have taken her advice on dating and business and run with it.
“Lisa helped me see the value of my story,” wrote Soribel Martinez, the Founder of Legacy for Latinas. “In working with her, I gave myself permission to share who I am.”
“Lisa teaches women the insider secrets on how to handle dating, relationships, and breakups with grace.” — Mark Victor Hansen, Co-Creator of the Chicken Soup for the Soul brand
After being coached by Lisa, one single woman found the inner motivation she needed to lose weight and go from a size 16 to a size 6. Lisa said her former client was a new woman, looking radiant and feeling confident. That type of transformative journey reminds Lisa why she got in the love industry to begin with.
“It’s humbling,” she said about such success stories. “That’s what we all want is to leave the world better because we were here. Sometimes it’s easy to forget the impact we have on others, until you see it happen before your eyes.”
Lisa’s past dating experiences have shaped her future successes by giving her the knowledge she needed to improve. Today, she has made a name for herself as a nationally acclaimed speaker, author, and relationship expert who redefines what having it all looks like. Many single professionals have felt inspired to follow her example and lead the kind of life they dream about.
“I want people to feel really supported in the dating scene, especially after heartache,” she told us. “If you never want to be in this place again, let me show you how to change.”

“You need a vision for your life and what that perfect imperfect person who fits in that life looks like,” she told us. “When you’re clear about your vision, you can start living your vision.”
