Daviece Clement (pictured) is successful, smart, charming, attractive and seemingly has it all, except for one thing — a man. The young entrepreneur and Howard U graduate has made up her mind to make the most ambitious move of her life: to snag the man of her dreams and marry him! So how does Clement plan to set her mission in motion? With an all-out, no-holds-barred campaign, that’s how.
As a former advertising exec, working at her craft certainly taught Clement how to think on her feet. So she’s putting to use the crafty skills and know-how she acquired as a ‘pitch person’ to devise her ‘find-a-man’ campaign, that she hopes will be just as successful as the ads she once created for Diet Coke.
Since Clement is not phased by the club scene, and online dating is on her ‘nevah, evah’ list, she resorted to doing what she does best: “I’m going to try something different and I’m going to take what I know about advertising and create a campaign,” she told the Richmond Times-Dispatch.
Even though Clement’s monster push for her soul mate is still being sketched out, she told the Richmond Times-Dispatch she will incorporate billboards, a webpage, social media and public relations. The 34-year-old spinster-on-the-move will also print business cards, design drink coasters and run TV commercials.
Clement is also looking to enlist other women in her project to help connect her with her potential Mr. Right candidates they know in their lives.
However, since Clement’s manhunting campaign could tilt the scales financially, she is, quite naturally, looking for sponsors to help with the costs.
So far, Clement has pretty much got the tagline for her campaign down pat, “Will you help Daviece find love?” And, if everything goes as planned, Clement is hoping to launch her manhunt push around the New Year’s, when folks are making resolutions for a fresh start.
Clement, who switched careers a few years ago at the top of her game and is now a hairstylist, does not think she has a few loose marbles. “I’m not afraid to take a risk in order to pursue happiness,” she affirms.
What does Clement’s family think of the bold moves she plans on making in her quest for love?
Gwendolyn Clement, the young woman’s grandmother, is used to her whims, so this latest venture comes as no surprise. “She is the type of youngster that’ll try things,” said Gwendolyn, who lives in Long Island, N.Y., where she helped raise her granddaughter. “She’ll try anything that comes to her mind.” The senior has, however, warned her granddaughter about casting her line in unknown waters, “I told her you had to be careful because you can attract people who are undesirable,” the elderly woman told the Richmond Times-Dispatch.
Heeding the advice of friends and family and in spite of what she’s been told, Clement is still determined to go for the gusto stating, “I already had a dream that I was going to be on ‘Good Morning America’ with my husband,” she said. “I’m not joking. It’s going to happen.”
