So you and your significant other are on a rare night out together. Between kids, jobs, and household chores there just aren't enough hours in a day to spend it with each other, but tonight you are hitting the town! The kids are with Gramma and you have every intention to party like it's 1999! Dinner at the hottest restaurant, drinks uptown, and then a movie in the park - fantastic!
And then it happens - the main course takes two hours to arrive leaving you with no uptown cocktails and late to your movie in the park! Wouldn't it have been nice to know ahead of time that the restaurant had a wait time 45 minutes deep and bar-top seating only!? Well, with the newly launched Tomi app you can!
Tomi was created with the idea of helping people save time. The way the application works is that anyone can update or check a wait time for any restaurant, bar, club, coffee shop, or dessert shop in the United States. The user just simply opens the application updates the wait time at the current venue they are at and viola! It will not show the current wait time so others can use this to make better plans.
So not only can you arrange your schedule to accommodate delays but you can also help others stay on schedule too. The App launches today through the Apple Store and Google Play! Home of Wealth was fortunate enough to be on the front-end of this app's release so scoot over and check it out for yourself!
A classic author is reinvented as her second novel, Go Set a Watchman, releases while in her late 80's. I am talking about none other than Harper Lee, iconic author of To Kill a Mockingbird. Her first effort was both a Pulitzer Prize winner and a social standard read by almost every school aged child in America. While anyone can order Go Set a Watchman from Amazon, Home of Wealth readers are invited to purchase their copies through an exclusive offer!
To commemorate the special occasion of Harper Lee's new book Go Set a Watchman, Ol' Curiosities and Book Shoppe is promoting the new Harper Lee book, Go Set a Watchman -- specifically pre-orders of embossed, first edition books with certificates of authenticity from Harper Lee's hometown of Monroeville, AL!
We are going to be providing certificates of authenticity and embossing the title page of this hard-cover first batch of first editions we get here at Ol' Curiosities and Book Shoppe. We want you to have a one-of-kind special edition that signifies that your copy came straight from Ms. Lee's hometown of Monroeville, Alabama. This service will be free of charge to anyone who pre-orders Go Set a Watchman by Harper Lee through us. These first edition books from Monroeville, AL, will go fast, so don't miss out!
While many feel Go Set a Watchman is the sequel of To Kill a Mockinbird, it was actually written many years before. Readers will be delighted as beloved American character, Scout Finch, grows up only to come back to a hometown teeming with political change and civil rights pressures.
Ms. Lee initially submitted Go Set a Watchman to her publishers only to have it turned down in favor of To Kill a Mockingbird. The manuscript was assumed lost until 2014 when it was discovered once again! An exciting real-life discovery to match an exciting fictional tale. This novel's release is set for July 2015 but is already ranking #1 in Amazon's New Releases for Classic Literature! Don't be like everyone else, pre-order your one-of-a-kind copy through Ol' Curiosities and Book Shoppe today!
So I keep hearing that working out with a personal trainer online is a thing, but what I haven't heard of is a smart delivery method. Recently, I was watching a Bloomberg segment featuring Hollywood trainer du jour, Tracy Anderson. She told the reporter all about her brand expansion into this organic food and that energy beverage but wrapped up by saying she is now offering her master fitness classes online. Sweet! I can workout with celebrities and eventually look like Gwyneth Paltrow from my Midwestern living room!
What, you mean Tracy's classes aren't live or filled with Hollywood's elite? Right, but Tracy Anderson is there giving me her customized recommendations, right? Wrong again!? Ugh, I need a brownie.
Therein lies my issue with online fitness programs: they are either a) stripped-down, pre-recorded versions of the good stuff or they are b) online Venus fly traps trying to lead you into purchasing other "lifestyle " products being sold by the trainer.
My disdain for online fitness training ends today because I finally found a goodie! Barbeelove Fitness, owned and operated by personal training powerhouse, Tamara Barbee Savoie, removes the biggest barrier for most people: time. Her fitness delivery method is LIVE and 100% ONLINE! Not only will she customize fitness lifestyle changes based on your needs, she also leads online bootcamps, membership programs, and small group classes. I reached out to Tamara and here is what she wants you to know about her:
I am a nationally Certified Personal Trainer, and a Nutrition Specialist. I know you have heard of many many different personal training business out there, however, mine is quite different from the rest. I train people exclusively ONLINE and LIVE! They never have to leave the comfort of their own homes. So many people say that time is a huge factor in the reason why they do not work out. I eliminate that excuse. My customers can simply roll out of bed in the morning and workout with me! I do private training and live online boot camps.
My brand is unique because I give my clients more for their money than the average Certified Personal Trainer. All of my clients are given a meal plan that is Dietitian and Nutritionist approved specifically for them. I also offer great referral programs and give away awesome prizes to winners of my boot camps (Vegas vacation stays, tablets, heart rate monitor watches, t-shirts, free training, ebooks, and more!).
My best selling product is my boot camp series. Once you are in a boot camp, you are eligible to win one of 3 FREE Vegas vacation stays if you are one of the top 3 people to lose the highest percentage of body fat. You should purchase training sessions with me because it WILL work. I teach you a lifestyle of fitness...not just for a few months.
It was very clear to me from the start that Tamara cares about what she is doing. Her clients are raving about their awesome, realistic results and throwing tons of praise at the Barbeelove Fitness method. Tamara is all-in, are you? If you are like me and find yourself more and more comfortable with online business models, Barbeelove Fitness is one more step in the right direction.
Did Justin and Jessica have their baby? If I am asked that question one more time today I might scream! Good thing there is a website I can turn to for the latest trends in the music ecosystem. Music Mix Daily was founded on the simple principle to provide visitors with extensive concert reviews and tour information. As it turns out, the American appetite for serious music insight is only so large which pushed Music Mix Daily founder, Lesa Browning to implement even more multifaceted music commentary like travel details, contests, and of course...gossip.
"We tend to focus on what is uber popular right now. But, our staff also keeps an ear to the ground for brand new artists or fabulous opening acts that will be next year's big thing. We actually started doing just concert reviews... long, serious reviews. But, people wanted more personal, quirky first-person reviews. They wanted less serious information, more beer and parking related info, and the general how-things-went-down details. So that is what MMD started giving them! Our visitors also really want the gossip, so I throw up a lot of music related gossip, a lot of new album news, tour news, VIP reviews, festival info, etc. We run a lot of contests and we hope to get a forum community active in the near future." - Lesa Browning, Founder - Music Mix Daily
If you love the cutting edge of music, drop by MMD and poke around a bit. With future plans to launch two more sites, Music Mix Daily is gaining steam with many genres. From the best opening acts to Gen Y artists, discover a unique listener community ready to share openly. Love to tweet? Great! follow @musicmixdaily and #MMD right now for the most up-to-date music trends.
