Weight Loss options for 2014 from Just Imagine Hypnosis Centers


Hi Kevin 

 

Do You Need to Lose Weight ?

 

 

20 Lbs - 50 Lbs - 100 Lbs - More ??

 

Do you know what your options are for getting Healthy & Back on Track?

 

Maybe you decided you don't want to attend meetings... you probably know too many people that have been going there forever!

 

Maybe you decided you don't want to buy special foods... after all you do enjoy eating and forcing yourself to do Jenny or another food plan is expensive and not all that great.

 

Maybe you considered a medical weight loss program where a doctor gives you drugs and then monitors your reactions to them. 

 

But you want a Cleaner & Happier & Healthier body...Without drugs putting a huge burden on your organs!

 

How about joining the gym?  You know what they say... Calories In - Calories out

 

Yeah ... it's a lot of work and who really has that much time?

 

Maybe if you had more Will Power - oh - you tried that?

 

Spring is really here -

  

 it's time for shorts and parties and the beach.

 

Those are the events you want to look your best at?

 

Oh Yes... you want to be happier and healthier so you can

Set an example for your kids.

Play with your kids... Be active with them

 

And be here to see them grow up...

 

Here's the good news

 

An exciting free workshop is happening next Tuesday April 9th at 7pm that may offer you some of the answers you are seeking.

 

Sponsored by Club Inhale/Exhale (it's not really a gym and it's not a medical weight loss place...)

 

Club Inhale / Exhale is actually something quite unique

 

You'll discover how during the past 3 years almost 200 people have shed significant pounds without diets or special foods.  

 

You'll even hear clients tell you what it was like for them.

 

How they had their doubts... (just like you have) and how they reluctantly took that next step to find out more...

 

How they talked to others...

 

How they felt as they experienced it really working...

 

They'll share how their quality of life changed...

 

How relationships were rekindled

 

How they began to live life again.

 

How will the quality of your life change?

 

When you know you're shedding 1 to 3 pounds every week. 

 

When you're not starving yourself or feeling guilty or being hungry all the time. 

 

Come and hear clients sharing their success stories with you!

 

Do you think Oprah, Tiger Woods or the US Olympic Team would tolerate swinging watches or  quacking like a chicken... of course not

 

But they all use hypnosis because their performance... their lives depend on them being at the top of their game.   (Doesn't your life depend on being healthy?)

 

The American Medical Association (AMA) approved the use of hypnosis in 1958. 

 

Today people have surgeries without drugs - less complications & faster healing

 

People are eliminating fears, phobias and anxieties ... stuff that hold other people back

 

and you can learn how it works...

 

In fact, Club Inhale / Exhale is offering a free week for just attending.  There will be some free raffles and everyone will be entered into a drawing for a nutritional profile.

 

Is there someone you really care about that could be healthier... Bring them along - 

 

There's no obligation and you'll have a good time.

 

You can even join the group hypnosis session that's guaranteed to leave you feeling refreshed and energized.

 

You'll even learn some self Hypnosis

ductworkDuct Work - Efficiency & Cleaner Air

 

Ducts are used with Forced Hot Air (FHA) and cooling systems to distribute air. A vent located on the floor, wall or ceiling is the duct systems outlet to dispense that air into your home. Loss of air within the ducts can be due to leaks, holes, gaps and poor connections. Smells, irritants and stale air are possible signs of polluted duct systems. Comfort, a clean environment and energy savings are products of a regularly cleaned and maintain duct system. Just changing the filter does not yield these results.

 

Let Paradigm help you inspect your duct system for proper installation, strong connections and sealing leaks, as well as, clearing out those pollutants that adhere to the duct system walls over time.

  

  • Inspect the whole duct system, including the attic, crawlspace, garage and basement as needed. 
  • Evaluate the system's supply and return air balance. Many systems have air return ducts that are too small. 
  • Repair damaged and disconnected ducts and straighten out flexible ducts that are tangled or crushed. 
  • Seal all leaks and connections with mastic, metal tape, or an aerosol-based sealant. 
  • Seal all registers and grills tightly to the ducts. 
  • Insulate ducts in unconditioned areas with duct insulation that carries an R-value of 6 or higher. 
  • Include a new filter as part of any duct system improvement. 
  • Evaluate air flow after repairs are completed. 
  • Ensure there is no backdrafting of gas or oil-burning appliances, and conduct a combustion safety test after ducts are sealed. 

 

Our goal is your goal,

  Efficiency and Cleaner Air.

Programmable Thermostats

 

Consider your weekly and weekend household schedule and seasonal changes when programming your thermostat. ENERGY STAR reports energy bill savings of up to $180.00 per year using the four pre-programmed setting.

Want a rebate offer for a thermostat? Check it out here! 

 

When disposing of thermostats, please recycle them safely through your local household hazardous waste program. Visit

to learn more.

 

 

 

Root Control 

 

rootcontrolInvasive roots often inch their way into pipes first slowing the drainage to your septic system. Soon the drains passage is block and the water flow is now choked resulting in a complete blockage. When it cannot go down the drain it will ultimately come back up. This can happen much quicker than you realize.

 

Give us a call to assess potential problems or even better to discuss a safe pretreatment plan using RootX. Used by professional plumbers and municipalities, RootX kills roots without harming your pipes.

 

 

 

 

 HAPPY EASTER

 

Easter is approaching in a few weeks. It is a great occasion to greet each other and pray for the prosperity of other  s.

There will be greenery and buds popping up  around us soon. The whether is warming and rainbows will be peeking

through the clouds.


Our Paradigm Team hope you enjoy the Easter holiday with your family and friends. We wish you all a happy Easter.

 

Prayer is not asking for what you think you want, but asking to be changed in ways you can't imagine.

Paradigm & Energy Star

 

Ever thought about the difference between efficiency and energy conversation? Efficiency involves a task performed with less energy. For example, heating or cooling your home through a duct system that has been properly install, routinely maintained and cleaned.  Energy conservation involves behavioral changes such as setting your thermostat lower in winter & higher in summer.

 

 Paradigm and EnergyStar would like to team up with you toward energy efficiency and energy conservation.  Start by watching the EnergyStar video HERE then call to see how we can help you.

Networking Success Story: Jennifer Ginty - Jennifer Ginty Image Consultant

I officially started my Image Consulting business last year. Before becoming certified, I helped friends and family members find the style that looked best on them. When I got the opportunity to change careers, I ran with the idea of becoming a professional in what I was passionate about.  

It took a bit of time for me to feel comfortable promoting my business. I used my friends and family networks to meet clients.  I created an online presence with my own website, Facebook page, Twitter account, and Pinterest boards, but I wasn’t getting enough face time to meet new clients and other professionals in the area. So I decided to try out the professional networking scene.  I had been invited to various networking groups, but they all came at a high price with annual and monthly dues.  

The first networking group I met with just happened to have Kevin as a speaker that morning. I had also signed up for an event he was hosting with the Merrimack Valley Sand Box Entrepreneur group the same day.  

I could tell from the start that Kevin was very good at his business. He was friendly and laid back. His speech was so informative - points were made that I never thought of when talking with potential clients and business owners. And after the meeting was over, he made a point to acknowledge me based on my LinkedIn profile. He knew I would be at his event that night.  

Since joining Friends of Kevin, I have met business owners who are interested in collaborating with me to bring our clients together with special events for both women and men. I’ve started feeling more comfortable talking about my services and the impact I hope to make in my clients’ lives. I am able to share my passion with others and get them involved so we can all benefit from each other’s special talents.  

I’m looking forward to going on his radio show to discuss my business. Because of Kevin’s wide range of networking possibilities, I am exploring all types of media to promote my business. 

Thanks, Kevin!
