Trail Breakdowns No Obstacle for Off Road Rescue Team

Eliot Colsten is used to getting people safely out of a tight spot; he’s been doing it for over a decade. The transition was a natural one when he decided to open Arizona Off Road Rescue and Towing a year ago. AZORR specializes in the recovery of all types of off-road vehicles including jeeps, dirt bikes, quads, trucks, and cars. The company is quickly becoming known throughout Arizona for its fair pricing and its professional recovery techniques.

Colsten says his customers can expect on-trail repairs and recovery provided by a highly-skilled team using the latest in equipment and technology. “I’ve been helping people for fifteen years and I wanted to take my passion and turn it into my business. For me, it’s not about the money it’s about getting people out of a bad situation.” The staff at Arizona Off Road Rescue and Towing prides itself on a rapid and safe response. If necessary, a crew member will travel ahead to the breakdown location to determine the best equipment needed. Repairs can be done on site by ASE certified off-road mechanics.

If a damaged or burned vehicle needs to be removed, the AZORR team provides both rescue and towing services while keeping any harm to the environment to a minimum. Services include replacing parts, changing tires, and transporting water or fuel. HAZMAT and EPA clean-up services are also offered.

The company has invested in major equipment purchases over the last several months to provide state-of-the-art property recovery. A recent acquisition is a boom for the firm’s Power Wagon. This allows the safe removal of a vehicle without additional damage. The new equipment tolerates a tongue weight of up to 3,000 pounds so that an UTV or quad can be physically picked up and towed instead of dragged from the scene.

The company is very focused on the safety of an individual in a crisis situation. After an off-road incident a person can be frightened and unsure of what to do. When AZORR team members respond to a call, they are also prepared to provide wilderness first aid should it be needed. Colsten is a wilderness first aid responder and both he and his staff will soon be EMT certified.

Candace Johnston, Unique Skin Therapy for Desert Residents

Unavoidably, Arizona residents are exposed to extreme weather — and that can mean trouble in the heat of our Arizona summers. Without proper care, our skin can easily become rough and chapped. Arizonans know all about dry, itchy, painful skin that easily cuts, scratches, cracks or splits.

However, there is relief and Candace Johnston has the solutions with her expertise of Arbonne skin care products.

“I call myself an educator in skin therapy,” says Johnston. “The skin is the largest organ in the body and it has to be at its best to properly protect us.” She realizes that Arizonans love to embrace their beautiful state with outdoor activities such as hiking, fishing, skiing, golfing, and cycling. “It’s wonderful to enjoy the outdoors,” she claims. “But it doesn’t have to happen at the expense of having healthy skin.”

Johnston is an esthetician, an expert in maintaining and improving skin. She has been educating clients about keeping their skin healthy and beautiful for over eight years. Even though most of her clients deal with the same desert climate challenges, each has his or her own skin type and quality. Johnston analyzes clients’ skin needs by considering factors such as age, skin type, ancestry, allergies, medical concerns, prescriptions, and lifestyle. With personalized skin care evaluations, she teaches the client how to effectively care for their skin and treat unwanted problems.

Johnston features Arbonne skin care products, internationally well-known for purity and safety. Formed from botanicals, Arbonne products never contain parabens, animal products or testing, or potentially harmful chemicals. Arbonne skin and hair care products are an ultra- premium line available from her through individual customized recommendations.

Whether you live in the Phoenix area, further south towards Tucson, or in the northern Flagstaff area, it is important to have a hydrating skin regimen that includes bathing in warm, not hot, water; using gentle cleansers; and applying appropriate products that address skin issues such as acne, anti-aging, sun protection, razor burn or rejuvenation. A personal skin analysis can determine exactly which Arbonne botanical products are best for you. Give Candace a call at (480) 710-0293 for your personal skin analysis.

Dental Practice Development Coach Sara Fossen Helps Practices Build The Right Team

Arizona-based business development expert passionately helps dentists help their patients.

As a business development expert for the dental practice sector, Sara Fossen and her SARA dental practice coaching & development business provides assistance to dentists in building their teams and focusing on their practices. Utilizing a specific business technique and applying her expertise in the field, Fossen works with dental offices and assesses their positions in the market, analyzing the areas that need improvement. Ultimately, she “discovers what’s missing” and “fills in the blanks” allowing the practice to thrive.

“I hold the dentists in my client network accountable for what they tell me they want,” explains Fossen. “In return, they get to the next level (personally and professionally), while I keep them focused on their goals and their success targets. Indeed, I am the dental field’s personal trainer of sorts; when one visits a trainer, he or she works harder and is more motivated.”

Fossen is a small town girl originally from Minnesota. She formed her passion in dentistry at an early age. Fossen started her as held different positions in her dental career. She started as a hygiene assistant, dental assistant, treatment coordinator, and, eventually an office manager. Directly working for a dental practice, she learned quickly just how vital a healthy mouth and a full set of teeth impact a patients’ quality of life. The difference quality hygiene/dentistry makes in people’s lives was a major motivating factor, driving her to explore a hidden passion for helping dentists ultimately help their patients.

Though occupying a unique niche of business marketing in it of itself, Fossen’s SARA Dental Practice Coaching & Development stands apart from other business coaching approaches in several ways. First and foremost, Fossen and her team develop customized plans for each of their clients once a practice is assessed and a business evaluation has been made. Working directly with the dentist, Fossen gets the doctor intimately involved with the business plan to better his or her practice – while many competing business development coaches simply put a plan into action and watch from a distance, many times not even visiting its clients’ offices, the experts at SARA Dental Practice Coaching & Development is 100-percent hands-on with the dentists it serves.

“At the end of the day, a dentist who is looking to go to the next level with his or her practice should give my firm a call,” concludes Fossen. “Even if a particular dentist is seeking some structure in the business or perhaps practice development or team development – we are the right people to see. A doctor who passionately shares a willingness to improve his or her practice would make excellent business partners with us.”
