It seems like every day we’re getting asked who we trust for everyday services and products, so we put together a list of who we recommend, both locally and nationally. These are services we know and trust. We’ve used them in various capacities, so we know you’re getting top notch service with them.
[affiliate link] I’ve tried several hosting servers over the years and my favorite by far is BlueHost. They have the best rates, unlimited data transfer, and their Control Panel is easy to navigate. Plus, they’re not constantly trying to sell you stuff you don’t need, unlike certain other well known hosting companies that shall remain nameless. If you’re in need of a website and a place to host it, I definitely recommend starting with BlueHost.
Plant a Seed Promotional is my favorite source for promotional products for any organization. Need Frisbees with your logo on them for the company picnic?

[affiliate link] We’ve been purchasing business cards from Vista Print for several years now. They run frequent promotions and you can save a lot of money when you order from them. Just have the discipline to say no to the upgrades they offer. In fact, if you watch for the sales you can really get some great deals. Plus, once you order, they send you notices of future sales and deals so you can save money each time you order.
[affiliate link] We use Skype for our video conferencing and long distance coaching. It’s free to connect to other Skype users and it works a lot better than the other video phone services we’ve tried. Whether you’re a small business owner or you just want to talk to friends & family while actually looking at them, Skype is a great tool to help you connect.
[affiliate link] As a coach working with clients long distance via Skype, it’s very valuable to record the calls and provide a copy of the call for my clients to reference any time they want. To record our Skype calls, we use Scribie. It’s free to use up to a certain storage limit, and they have reasonable rates to upgrade storage limits. Plus, they’ll transcribe your calls for a low rate so you can use interviews and other recordings for written publishing.
[affiliate link] A lot of businesses use Adobe products to help them be more efficient. Whether it’s Dreamweaver for designing websites or Photoshop for editing pictures or any other application, you can find a good program with Adobe.
In our articles and podcast episodes, you’ll hear us talking about the benefits of working with local banks and credit unions vs. the big banks. Waldo State Bank is one such local bank that has more flexibility than the big banks. They actually can put some thought into home loans and other products. The big banks can’t do that. They underwrite loans based on your FICO score without taking your individual situation and your personal character into consideration. Derrick Hermann is a loan officer at Waldo State Bank. He has the flexibility to underwrite loans in-house and look at the big picture instead of just a number. Derrick can be reached at:Waldo State Bank 119 N. Depot Street Waldo, WI 53093 920-528-8385 www.waldostatebank.com

Mike Stubler with Sentry Insurance is who we refer clients to when they need a review of their insurance policies for their home, auto, boat, and other property. Mike knows his stuff and will review your policies with you to make sure you have the appropriate coverage. Recently he showed some of our clients where they had gaps in their coverage because their old agent chose to remove that coverage from their policy. Plus, Mike doesn’t have an office. He does business at your home so he can see where you have potential gaps in coverage that need to be addressed (and it keeps their costs down). Call Mike at 920-564-6987 for a policy review.
Jim Schuldt with State Farm Insurance is another professional with the heart of a teacher. Before he sells any insurance policies, it’s important to Jim that his clients understand why they need the insurance and that their individual needs are met, not a one-size-fits-all policy. Jim can be reached at:117 N. Milwaukee St Plymouth, WI 53073 920-893-9668 www.jimschuldt.com
Identity Theft Insurance
Just like most other insurance needs, it’s not a matter of if you’ll need identity theft insurance. It’s a matter of when. Zander Insurance has by far the best Identity Theft insurance plan/policy out there. If you want all the bells and whistles for your policy to guarantee full recovery of your identity and all funds associated with reversing the damage, Zander Insurance’s policy is the way to go. The policy is valued at a fair price for all the value that comes with.
If you want a less expensive policy that still provides good coverage options for identity theft, Mike Stubler with Sentry Insurance (see above) has a pretty good policy at a good price. The benefit of this option vs. Zander’s policy is more than the cost advantage. Zander’s policy does all the work for you. Sentry’s policy walks you through the recovery process, which means you’ll learn along the way and be more likely to avoid the same mistakes in the future. You know we’re big fans of learning from your mistakes and changing behaviors, so this is a policy you might want to consider.
US Legal Forms [affiliate link] Way too many people die without a will. Don’t be one of them. It’s irresponsible as a parent to leave your children behind without a will. The sad thing is most of us procrastinate on this because we think legal fees cost too much. But the truth is it doesn’t cost much at all. Most of us need only a simple will and you can create one yourself with state-specific legal documents from US Legal Forms. We used US Legal Forms in our family to do a will, power of attorney, living will, medical power of attorney, and specific power of attorney for less than $50. Your specific needs may vary, but the point remains that you need to use US Legal forms to get a will done TODAY.
