Episode 45: Lori Cheek – Using innovation to build a life of her dreams

Episode 45: Stand Out Radio - Lori Cheek, Cheekd

Lori Cheek is an architect turned entrepreneur. She Founded and is CEO of Cheekd a dating business and app which helps people connect in the real world before starting a virtual conversation and she’s created something I have never seen before…the beautiful merging of the offline and online worlds.

“I have built a life dedicated to building my own dreams rather than a life dedicated to building someone else’s” 

Lori talks with us about the evolution of her business over the past 7 years and the impact of her being on the TV show Shark Tank (and in front of over 8 million people) on her and her business.

What struck me about Lori was her determination and the solid belief in herself and her business and how that has propelled her forward…even when it was tough going.

Words of Wisdom

Surround yourself with the people you want to become. A positive, supportive group of people who inspire you.


Pick a lifestyle and not a job.


Understand that taking the leap into entrepreneurship is a mission that will take twice as long as you hoped, cost way more than you ever dreamt and potentially more challenging than anything you’ll ever do but if you give it your all and never give up, you can trust it will be the ride of a lifetime.
