Noel Concierge Services' founder and owner, Shirma Ferguson, has long understood the difficulties of juggling a hectic schedule as a single mother of two and a grandmother. Her dedicated team of caretakers disperses into neighborhoods helping busy bees and businesses overcome the limiting time constraints of a 24-hour day. Noel Concierge's friendly staffers can perform a number of menial tasks around the home and office––such as scheduling doctors appointments, plant-sitting, and shredding declarations of independence––and take on lengthier janitorial projects including pest control, carpet instillation, and painting.
The highly trained technicians at Jiffy Lube tend to about 24 million customers each year with services such as the Signature Service oil-change package, which promotes the longevity of each vehicle. Staffers acknowledge that oil plays a crucial role in maximizing the lifespan of each car—it cools the motor and prevents moving parts from deteriorating. More than 20,000 technicians who have completed an extensive training program certified by the National Institute Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) nurse vehicles at Jiffy Lube.
In addition to performing oil changes, Jiffy Lube’s savants perform air-filtration, electricity, and windshield services, among others. The technicians’ quality pledge includes a commitment to transparency, which stipulates that they will inform car owners of any necessary services, complete a service only after it has been approved, and refuse to replace windshields with Saran wrap.
Image-making expert Suzanne is a wife and mother, so she understands the fast pace and busy schedules most families keep. With her photography, she strives to capture the special moments that might otherwise be missed in the rush of daily life, keeping portrait sessions fun and natural, like organic carrots on roller skates. Use today's Groupon to capture the curiosity of a toddler before she's all of a sudden an accountant, or preserve the confidence of a high school senior before he begins a brand new social climb in college.
A certified health coach, raw-food chef, and Pilates instructor, Becca Sutter struggled with body-image issues and negative self-talk at an early age. Dance had always been her voice, but one day that voice fell silent. Becca gained weight and began to feel lost, adrift, and unfulfilled. Then she took her first yoga class. This was the spark that would propel her transformation, and she began to feel inspired, rejuvenated, and hopeful once more.
A true model of enlightenment, Becca aims to share her journey with each client that crosses her path. At her studio, she teaches Pilates, barre sculpt, and yoga classes to help students feel better about themselves and shed weight like a cat sheds its claws each summer. She provides diet coaching to help clients control eating cravings and delves even further into healthy eating by educating clients about the benefits of raw-food diets.
Becca still dances—in fact, she’s on the ballet faculty at the Artistic Dance Conservatory—only now, she has discovered even more avenues to help her feel emotionally free and connected to joy.
