In that time, it's turned countless numbers of soiled vehicles into sparkling rides with a soft touch and stern stance against dirt.

Though he had spent much of his young life honing the ability to divine the future, Scott Baker, spiritually named Chetan, only discovered the full potential of his gift after a car accident left him with a severe brain injury. As he relearned once simple tasks, such as walking and reading, he found that his connection to himself and others had changed, allowing him to extend his perceptive gift by tuning into other people. Now, Chetan shares his gift with clients seen in person, over the phone, or via email, giving them uncanny guidance. Before each session, he independently writes down impressions that could take the form of words, pictures, or phrases to guide the readings. Chetan also proclaims a link to the spiritual world, passing along messages from departed loved ones and exorcising demons from possessed mannequins.
As a lad, Don Clay, Jr. watched his father clean carpets and refinish floors, going on to master the trade under his dad's tutelage. Today, Clay operates his own business, Michigan Carpet Cleaning, where his more than 30 years of experience have earned five Angie's List Superior Service Awards. Clay and his insured crew refresh floor fibers during both residential and commercial carpet cleanings. The dirt extractors strain to reach out-of-the-way spots and scour rugs after homeowners facilitate the movement of furniture or house-wide model-train sets. Additionally, Clay's team expands its floor-refurbishing skills to include repairing flood damage with water-damage restoration and dry out services, as well as cleaning and deodorizing upholstery and furniture.
For clients' convenience, Clay dispenses online carpet-care tips, plus complimentary quotes. When not inhaling embedded debris from carpets' deepest recesses, Clay throws support behind local high-school athletics and church youth programs.
After a decade working in the insurance industry, Heather Kierczak—the owner of The Loft, Massage Therapy—was convinced that there simply had to be a better way to do things. In that career, she had watched people deal with surgery after surgery or struggle with potentially addictive pain medications, and wanted in particular to find a way to help others to manage their pain. Soon, she discovered massage. Kierczak is now certified in massage therapy, neuromuscular therapy, myofascial therapy, and lymphatic-drainage massage. She also uses hot stones to further enhance her massage treatments; in the stone therapy, she helps relieve tension using both hot and cold stones and projector slides of Stonehenge.
Pump It Up's indoor inflatable arenas launch socked striplings into the air with a plethora of kid-friendly bounce pads. Staffers supervise fun-filled visits, during which adult counterparts leap around with their kids through gargantuan bounce houses, skip down air-filled slides, and slither like snakes covered in bacon grease through an inflated obstacle course.
The colorful venue also hosts custom birthday parties and private team parties, each themed to please the partygoers in question. These soirees immerse children in a schedule of interactive activities while melting off youthful energy faster than ice cubes thrown into a running DVD player. The birthday boy or girl even gets to blow out the candles on their cake seated in their blow-up throne. Relying on the staffers' vigilant, watchful eyes, guardians can rest assured that their charges will stay safe, and each piece of the inflatable playground is held to the floor and one to the ceiling by a complex series of anchors installed according to strict safety standards.
