The board-certified physicians at The Center for Medical Weight Loss draft up holistic, nonsurgical weight-loss plans, offering dietary and fitness guidance while helping patients overcome behavioral blocks that inhibit slimming down. Consultations last approximately 30 minutes and begin with a thorough review of medical histories. Clients then hop on an advanced scale that calculates bodily levels of fat, muscle, heroism, and water before machines glean resting metabolism rate and blood pressure. Based on these data and an in-depth conversation about fitness goals, physicians prescribe a weight-loss plan covering diet and exercise that accounts for any emotional, mental, and physical barriers that interfere with pound shedding. Physicians discuss strategies to help clients overcome factors such as stress-related eating patterns and hauntings by ghostly bacon strips. After consultations, patients receive vitamin B12 and fat-burning injections that help jump-start fitness quests.

Through its convenient online booking system, Homejoy Cleaning strives to connect homeowners with the cleaning services and technicians they can trust. After scheduling a cleaning appointment, homeowners receive a profile of their assigned cleaners⎯including their picture and their mop's astrological sign⎯so that homeowners can get to know the crew before they arrive. Teams then carry out an extensive list of tasks during cleaning visits, from blasting away dust and debris from counters to vacuuming and mopping floors. Customers are free to create or change appointments from their home computer or smartphone, and may also opt for additional services, such as laundry, oven cleaning, or spotless interior window cleanings.
Like most good ideas, Gymboree Play & Music didn't begin in a business meeting—it began out of necessity. In 1976, Joan Barnes, a California mom, found herself frustrated with the lack of spaces where she could take her kids for safe and age-appropriate play time. Knowing that other parents were undoubtedly feeling the same frustration, she took matters into her own hands and founded Gymboree Play & Music. She consulted experts to design a curriculum of activities to foster the development of children’s cognitive, physical, and social skills through structured play. She hired a nationally renowned playground designer Jay Beckwith to design the proprietary play equipment at her centers. And her staff began conducting entertaining classes covering subjects ranging from music to sports to impart valuable lessons of imagination and physical activity to developing minds. As their children learned and socialized, parents also found benefit in meeting and befriending other moms and dads in their local area. More than 30 years later, her vision has proved to be a success: more than 712 child-centered franchises now spread over 42 countries, bringing confidence and creativity to thousands of youngsters in several continents and to one in the center of the earth.
Since 1995, the non-profit certified credit counselors at Debt Counseling Corporation have guided thousands of people toward brighter financial futures. Their approach is straightforward: listen to the client describe their goals and financial situation, and then develop an action plan based on that information. Beyond Action Plans, the company can devise strategies for managing debt, share tips for budget planning, and even help formulate short- and long-term goals for clients seeking guidance. Their approach has evidently been successful—they were voted the best debt-consolidation service in 2013 by Best of Long Island, and the company's education director was recently featured as an expert on NBC's The Economic Crisis: Surviving the Storm with Chuck Scarborough. As a non-profit organization, Debt Counseling Corporation also provides many of its ongoing services for free, and also offers bilingual services. Outside of pain-free budgeting, DCC offers bankruptcy services and housing counseling, as well.
