Trusted Health Expert provides a TRUSTED TIP on Mommy Makeover..Regain YOUR confidence!

 

Mommy Makeover: Regain your Confidence!

A mommy makeover can help you get back to your pre-baby body! It can help you feel more attractive, self-confident, and comfortable in your own skin. Many women would like to change something about their body once their family is complete, and many mommies do something about it.

First, ask yourself a few questions to see if the mommy makeover surgery is right for you!

1. Are you planning on having more children?

If so, wait. Additional pregnancies will probably reverse the results of the surgery.

2. What do you expect from your mommy makeover surgery?

It will make your body look better and will likely improve your self-confidence. However, it will not change your life.

3. Are your kids old enough to be cared for by someone else for 2 weeks while you recover from your mommy makeover?

Will you be able to take at least 2 weeks off for your mommy makeover?

4. What exactly is a mommy makeover?

Most commonly, a mommy makeover is a combination of a tummy tuck, breast life or enhancement, and liposuction. The only solution to tighten up that tummy is abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), a surgical tightening of the skin and muscle of the abdominal wall. This mommy makeover procedure removes excess skin below the belly button, tightens and flattens the abdominal muscles, and gets rid of stretch marks. Surgical options are a breast lift, augmentation or both. A lift removes excess skin, raises the nipples and reduces sagging. If you’ve lost volume, a breast augmentation may be right for you. Safe, natural-looking implants fill out the stretched skin and return the volume you lost during pregnancy and breast-feeding. Liposuction is an especially effective approach for moms with stubborn problem areas. In addition to the overall weight gain that usually comes with pregnancy, hormonal changes can cause localized fat deposits in the abdomen, hips, thighs and back. Diet and exercise don’t help with these deposits, which makes liposuction the ideal solution for tackling trouble spots.

Trusted Saskatoon Mystery shop Rays Moving, we share the results on the SASKATOON DIRECTORY of excellence

Being a Trusted Business on the directory comes with alot of responsibilty...no other directory, advertising medium or ' watchdog organization'  puts businesses through the process we do before we promote and endorse them...in fact,the most other organizations offer is checking that the business has a valid business license, and maybe that they have insurance and don't have an F rating ( some even keep taking money off these terrible businesses for advertising no matter what they are rated or how awful they are to their customers) ...some other marketing companies claim to survey the public randomly before they approach businesses to pay to join their organizations..but even they don't offer any safeguards, guarantees or follow up after the fact for the consumer they proport to speak for...and only the BBB offer dispute resolution..but they cannot force the business to 'make it right' ...just advise them to do the right thing, and perhaps reduce their rating if they don't treat the customer fairly ...and if the business you have had an awful experience with ( like the moving company in the article below ) is not a member of the BBB then they do nothing for you..you are on your own, out of pocket and feeling thoroughly ripped off miserable and taken advantage of ...click on the link to read the CBC news story below for an example of just that! 

MOVERS USE EXTORTION AGAINST CUSTOMER  

Trusted ONLY speaks to businesses that have great recommendations and a trackable history....Trusted has turned businesses away who do not meet our standards ( we require the businesses who apply to provide 25 clients to us..names and numbers) we then we set about calling those clients and surveyng them..it is pass or fail..we are not looking for OK or AVERAGE ratings..Trusted demands AWESOME and OUTSTANDING reviews...otherwise they do not pass the verification to be on the directory and they do not get the Thumbs Up..the busnesses are re checked and verified annually!

There are businesses we will not even go and present to, even if they show interest, due to the things we have found out about them and their practices.....running a company call Trusted means people feel safe to tell us about their experiences positive and negative...and we always keep their confidences .....Sara the Trusted owner and our Trusted Consultants get warnings by email, calls and in person every week from the public and other business owners about the businesses to ' stay away from' and we have a growing naughty list.....

The Trusted Partners ( as that is what we call our Trusted businesses ..as only Together are weTrusted..we all have our parts to play to ensure the directory maintains the standards and high level of integrity that it does) and Trusted then enter into a contract, where the partners sign to uphold the 5 Trusted Guarantees ..these are the foundation of our business and they are the Guarantees that our Trusted businesses offer their clients...to ensure that our partners are upholding these guarantees on a daily basis we have a MYSTERY SHOPPER PROGRAM, where we mystery shop a minimum of 10% of our Trusted Partners on an annual basis....and we get our shoppers to fillout a report to tell us about the experience....

Our latest business to be mystery shopped was RAYS MOVING & STORAGE   , Mark at Rays was happy for us to share the report with you, the public..

TRUSTED PARTNER: Rays Moving

DATE OF MS:Monday November 21st (phone call) Thursday December 1st (move date)

MYSTERY SHOP CHECKLIST

1. How was the greeting/ welcome/ call answered?

I was transferred to a very friendly and extremely helpful fellow who booked my move for a time and day that worked for me in less than 10 minutes. I would normally have written down his name, but under the circumstances I neglected to do so therefore I have forgotten the name of the person that I spoke with. He was absolutely great to deal with!

2. If retail: Appearance of the store / staff 

Booking was done over the phone, did not go to office.

3. Product/industry knowledge of staff? N/A

4. If a quote is required is the quote well laid out/ clear?

I did not ask for a quote as I was more concerned about being moved on a certain date by a reputable mover. My sister had called around approx. a month prior for rates for my Dad’s move, so I was aware of what current rates for movers were.

5. Did they ask where you found them?

No, I told him how I found Ray’s on Trustedsaskatoon.com website.

6. Overall experience 1-10. –

I will give them a 9.5

7. Would you return as a customer/ recommend them to close friends? 

Yes, and I will use them again when I move my things out of the storage facility to my new home.

8. Did anyone stand out as exceptional? or the opposite..If so who? Why? 

As well as the above mentioned fellow who booked my move, I found the two fellows that actually moved me to be fast, professional, friendly and compassionate. I was moving due to a breakdown in my long term relationship, and those two guys really tried to cheer me up!

9. If you made a purchase/booked a job how was the process? If so refer to the Trusted Guarantees below and give an overall mark on each if applicable.

See above #6 ..I am pleased to say they upheld all the guarantees!

TRUSTED GUARANTEES

Danrich Electric our SASKATOON ELECTRICIAN EXPERTS provide a Trusted Tip on the SASKATOON DIRECTORY of excellence

Danrich Electric has been serving Saskatoon and surrounding areas for 10 Years, they are a "Total Service" company with trained technicians who are able to provide customers with solutions to all their electrical related requirements, and they are proud to provide prompt, courteous and professional service. At Danrich they strive to satisfy all of their customers electrical needs. Here they provide their first TRUSTED TIP..on choosing an electrician!

How To Hire An Electrician

An electrician is someone who specializes in the wiring and repair of electrical mechanisms. Most people will rarely need the services of an electrician, but when it is necessary choosing the right one is very important. For home use, electricians are typically needed to re-wire or repair existing systems. They are also needed for construction, including additions and remodels, to place the electrical outlets and lighting. Before deciding on an electrician, determine the scope of work. Try to be as detailed as possible so you can determine the needs for the project. Minor repair work can be completed by an electrician who is may not have a lot of experience. However, for major repairs, remodels, and new construction, it is imperative to get a skilled tradesman. Improper wiring can be very dangerous and can lead to fires, putting everyone at risk.

Danrich would always advise you to get recommendations for an electrician before hiring one. If you decide to choose a few to get estimates on your project for comparison we would suggest talking with each person/electrical firm to evaluate their experience and expertise. Have them walk through your project with you so you can understand what needs to be done, how it will be accomplished, how long it will take and the cost….get a written quote, so there are no gray areas. An electrician should be licensed and carry valid insurance (workers comp insurance is a must- otherwise you may be liable if they injure/electrocute themselves on your property.) Verify that both are active and in good standing before starting a job. Damage done can be severe with improper wiring so this is very important. If an electrician cannot provide you with both, do not hire them. There is too much at stake. If you are concerned ask for copies of their license and insurance certificate.

Experience Level

Ask the electrician about their experience level. An electrical company that has been in business for a long time will likely be a better choice than one that is just starting out. New businesses may offer price reductions to help them establish a client list and references, but may not be around in a month or so if something go’s wrong. If opting for a new business, check that the electrician who is working on the job has significant experience with the type of work required. Request references and check them. Electricians who have happy customers will do a good job for you.

Choose the electrician who has the best combination of price and experience, and with whom you felt most comfortable. Get the project specifications in writing so you have a detailed accounting of the job, the costs, and time for completion. This will help protect you if anything goes wrong.

Trusted brags about TAMMY WANDZURA a SASKATOON MORTGAGE Expert on the Saskatoon Directory of excellence

"I just want to let you know that we all appreciated your help with this transaction. If it weren’t for you, my brother and I would not have been able to be neighbours and we thank you a million times over for making that possible! I called you in a panic and you helped me calm down, dealt with us immediately and efficiently, and got us a great mortgage with a great rate. So thanks from all of us Tammy, we’ll definitely be using you in the future and I would absolutely recommend you to anyone! " -Michelle

"Tammy, you have no idea how much we appreciate you. You get back to me on a Saturday night, and with an answer I wasn't expecting (in a great way!) You guys truly rock. Thank you SO much. I really appreciate you making this so easy for us, and helping us save some money at the same time! You are getting THE BEST recommendations/referrals from us!" -Lindsay Cheveldayoff

"Tammy, I have been wanting to send you a message for quite some time thanking you for all of your hard work and dedication regarding the refinancing of our mortgage this past spring. I had been doing some investigating on refinancing and contacting the banks on my own time, which was met with minimal success. I happen to have heard your ad on the radio a few times, and so the next time it came on I listened up and copied your contact information, and am I ever glad I did. I must say that I was hesitant to contact your office based on my past experience with anything 'mortgage related'. I certainly didn't expect the service that we enjoyed throughout our entire dealing with you and your group. Whether it was thorough and considerate replies to my rapid fire emails, taking my phone calls without delay, or your effortless work and 'out of the box' thinking in regard to our unique situation, you did not once disappoint. You are so personable and fun to work with that despite all the roadblocks (beyond both our and your control) that were put in our way, we still came out smiling once it was all said and done. I'm happy to report that we are currently enjoying a little more financial freedom, and a lot more peace of mind. Not only were you able to assist us with refinancing but you were able to educate us on the process, options, and what was best for us moving forward. We have been able to use some of our savings to enjoy a getaway to Vancouver for our anniversary this month. If there were an expression of gratitude bigger than thank you, it would be owed to you. We have made a trusted contact in you and will happily use your services in the future. So, thank you, for everything that you have done for us. We appreciate your dedication and expertise very much." -Jess & Chris

"I have always been intimidated dealing with other financial institutes. But, with Tammy I felt very comfortable, even empowered. I would like to say thank you for all your help and for educating be. Thank you! " -Loretta

This is a very powerful reminder that Trusted works for the CONSUMER, not the business....and as you have just read, there is NO DOUBT what so ever that Tammy Wandzura from TMG was doing an amazing job of doing just that well before Trusted came along...she rounds off this TRUSTED all women ( TMG) MORTGAGE category in Saskatoon beautifully, and we are thrilled to have her on board the Trusted Train.  

We know it is very clear from reading ( and hearing ) the stories above and in the client survey portion of the 'Trusted verification Process', that Tammy makes what can be one of the most stressful moments of a persons/couples/familes life/lives ...a much more positive experience..just by being there....

Tammy is NOT the kind of professional who shuts off their phone at 5pm on a weeknight ( none of Trusted Partners are to be honest)  ...or doesn't answer emails on a weekend or on vacation....not because she is a work-a- holic ( although that does help somewhat..as she probably admits to being just that ...she is smiling and nodding reading this Laughing) .....it's because she cares about her clients and wants to be the EASY part of the purchase and moving process......

Trusted hears of MANY MANY mortgage ' horror ' stories that haven't gone smoothly (People email and call us ALOT to share their experiences across the categories we cover on the directory, in the hope that others will not go through it too! We will listen , but we only hold our Trusted partners to account not others..so please choose Trusted and there is no risk) .....and we know the additional stress of having to constantly be the one who follows up to see where things are at, feeling frustarted and left in the dark, at what should be a happy , exciting time...is awful!

We believe that Tammy was born to do what she does and we have NO reservations saying that we GUARANTEE a GREAT Experience with her and her team, if you choose her for your next move up, down or anywhere in between! She is a fabulous and lovely addition to the SASKATOON DIRECTORY of excellence....remember we promote the BEST other directories just list the rest!

Trusted Saskatoon Website Design Experts provide a Trusted Tip on 6 important things to consider when redesigning your website

 

6 important things to consider when redesigning your website

Over the three years I have had the opportunity to speak with an array of business owners in Saskatoon who are considering redesigning their current websites. A common issue they all face is whether or not they simply need a small cosmetic change to their website or a complete reconstruction of the entire site. Last September, while reading through my daily Internet/web design news, I came across a great article outlining important things to consider when redesigning your website. The article captured the main questions that business owners need to consider before determining if their website can simply undergo a small facelift or a complete redesign. I hope this article gives you a few things to think about and helps you determine the best strategy forward for your website! Allison Craig Website Marketing Owner, Trio Web Design - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

There are very few, if any, websites on the Internet that don’t undergo at least a minor facelift at some point in their lifecycle. If you own a business with a web presence, at some point, that site will need to be redesigned, whether it’s due to the changing nature of your business, or purely for aesthetic reasons.

Redesigning your company site can be a major undertaking, so we’ve put together a helpful list of things to keep in mind when considering a redesign.

1. Why Are You Redesigning?

This is perhaps the most deceptively complex, yet obvious question of all. Before undergoing any redesign, however, it’s important to understand what it is you wish to accomplish. Are you unhappy with the way your site functions? Do you simply want a better-looking site? Do you need to improve search engine rankings and sales conversions? Maybe the focus of your business has shifted and it’s time for new content. These are all important factors to consider, so before you start, make a detailed list of what it is you wish to accomplish during the redesign. This will help guide you through the rest of the process and make sure you stay focused on the end goal.

2. What Type of Redesign Do You Need?

Now that you’ve decided exactly why you want to redesign your site, it’s time to decide just how far down the rabbit hole you need to go. Perhaps a small change in visuals and content is all that’s necessary. On the other hand, you may need to add new features or completely redo your underlying code base. Depending on your needs and budget, a large overhaul may be out of the question, or it may be the most cost-effective long-term solution, so take a moment to think about your needs going forward and work with your developer to strike a balance that best meets them.

3. What Does and Doesn’t Work Currently?

No matter how large or small the redesign, chances are there will be some elements of your existing site that work very well and some that don’t work at all. Now is the time to go through your site and identify these elements. Maybe your content is too verbose or your sales page isn’t very user-friendly. On the other hand, that photo gallery and the blog may be big-ticket items that do really well for your image and bring in lots of traffic. Some elements will need to remain (though possibly given a makeover), some will need to be cleaned up and some will have to go. Break your site down into its key components and then compare those with the goals you decided on in step one and the overall vision for your web site. If something doesn’t fit, it’s out.

4. How Is Your Site Being Used?

Along these same lines, don’t forget to take a look at how users are currently interacting with your site. This will help you identify great content and problem areas.Study your traffic statistics and site analytics for information on things such as entry and exit pages, sales conversions, and search engine keywords. This will help you to understand how visitors find your site and what they do once they get there. While you’re studying those statistics, also have a look at details like screen resolution and browser usage. This will help your developer determine what technical specifications your site should meet and whether a separate mobile version of your site is recommended, among other things.

5. Has Your Brand or Company Image Changed?

If you’ve undergone changes to your brand and company image, those changes need to be reflected in your site, even if the only updates are visual. Keep your logos updated and consider a color-overhaul if the corporate image or philosophy has shifted. Your website is often the first impression people get of your business, so it should grow and mature right along with the rest of your brand identity.

6. When and How Should You Launch Your Redesign?

When and how you launch your redesign can have a big impact on your traffic and in generating buzz about your new site and your product. Maybe you’re simply making improvements and want to slowly roll out changes over time and unannounced. This unobtrusive rollout won’t give you a lot of buzz, but it will still accomplish your goals of improving the site’s performance and the user’s experience. On the other hand, a big relaunch around the holidays or at the start of a big promotion, or when announcing a major change in the way your business operates can both draw traffic and generate more interest.
