Tell us your Redema Experience Here

I’m having a great time processing orders for you (for no charge at the moment –well, OK, there are the shipping and handling fees), which is done by yours truly, the Product Developer of the Redema Ottoman Footrest, Karen Tinsley-Kim. This deal may not last much longer, as it is dependent upon how many remain in stock.

I believe in the Redema very much and continue to use it daily. I’m just having trouble getting the attention I need for the Redema so it can be even more accessible to your family and friends. Many of the stores I’ve approached over the last year or two are no longer in business, and for the ones that remain, the competition has been fierce.

Being a full-time university instructor and mom of three young men has not afforded me the time or funds to adequately market this product. However, I am grateful and pleased with the progress I’ve made thus far to actually get the Redema patented (US Utility Patent #7,464,991), thanks to the great help of family and friends.

Frankly, I’ve been at this long enough that my current packaging needs to be redone. They are not suitable for store shelves anymore. But instead of letting these Redemas go to waste, I’m giving them away with the expectation that all of you will help me get the Redema Ottoman Footrest where it should be — under more people’s legs and feet so they can benefit.

Like the economy, the future of the Redema Ottoman Footrest is uncertain. It may be that once these are gone (and frankly there are not so many), I may just call this amazing adventure in product development of the Redema a done deal.

Would you share your Redema Experience here, especially if you have participated in this special giveaway? You may be among the select owners of the only Redema Ottoman Footrests that will ever be made. Your thoughts and tributes are most genuinely appreciated!

Can’t afford an adjustable bed?

Just a few days ago, I a local woman obtained a Redema for her husband who has had multiple back surgeries, and he desired some kind of elevated support while in bed. My grandmother continues to use hers for one of her legs when she sleeps. I’ve had other customers tell me they’ve purchased a Redema for similar reasons so they could get elevation for their legs and feet but while lying down.

For some of us it might be to improve circulation, others to relieve pain, while for others it may be to reduce swelling or a combination of these. Compared to the expensive adjustable beds out there, the Redema is a much more affordable, but still adjustable option for lower-body elevation.

Why don’t you click here to find out for yourself if the Redema Ottoman Footrest could serve you or a loved one with better comfort and perhaps health, too?

Get a Redema for Freeeee!

One silver lining to this far-too-long-already recession is that people and businesses are deeply discounting or giving away things at an unprecidented rate. Of course, the hope is that word of mouth marketing will bring customers back for future purchases.

One example that I’ve recently enjoyed has been through a new Chipotle restaurant that has opened near us. My boys thought they didn’t like it based on a previous visit over a year ago, but I pushed this opportunity to try it again. We stood in line for free food and drinks for about 30 minutes the first time and about and hour the second (yes, they did this 2 days in a row!). Chipotle does little to no advertising — it is events like this that promote how good the food is there. I know now that my boys will go back — they changed their minds, and now say they love Chipotle! I confess I love Chipotle for this all the more, too, as it used to be I was the only one who enjoyed eating there.

Following Chipotle’s model, I would like to offer you a Redema at no cost save for the shipping and handling for one day. But, the catch is this — like Chipotle, I’m only holding this event for one day, probably only for a limited window in that 24 hour period. You want to know when it is? Look on the left side of this page. Do you see the “Enter your e-mail address” box? Just put your most frequently checked e-mail address, and then the day of the event, you should get my posting announcing the coupon code for the one day to get a Redema free!

Here’s a hint: August is Inventor’s Month. To celebrate, this event will be sometime in the first two weeks of August. So, tell your friends to visit http://RedemaLiving.com and sign up! Who wouldn’t enjoy a little comfort for free? Of course, I’m expecting you to help me get the word out about how wonderful the Redema is in return. Thanks in advance, and be sure to check your e-mail regularly in August!

SMART Strategy for Economic Woes

October 17, 2008

I just read an article directed at dentists, but they have businesses much like any other — they have their ups and downs. I would like to glean some of the ideas I picked up from this as possibly like you, I’m seeking to surf the waves of the economy, not get caught in the throes.
The SMART method of goal setting as described by Amy Morgan of http://www.dentaleconomics.com: A SMART goal must be Specific. You don’t just say, “I want to be busier.” What is your production per hour, per day? The goal must be Measurable. Goals such as “I want to be happier, more successful, and balanced, and I want more patients saying yes” will get you nowhere. In this case, measurable means looking for a statistical interpretation of success that would result in balance, happiness, and patients saying yes. A SMART goal must be Achievable. You might have been able to produce $1.2 million two years ago, but if your situation and method of operation have changed, the worst thing you could ever give your team is unachievable goals. Your team, knowing the goal is unattainable, will be demotivated instantly. Next, ensure the goal is Relevant. Set goals that support your vision, values, and strategies. If no-shows and cancellations are not a problem in your practice, and you don’t see them ever being problems in the future, then you don’t need goals that address no-shows and cancellations. In more sophisticated offices, I often see so many statistics that the intention of the goals and statistics get lost. Finally, a SMART goal must be Timely. Are your goals set to address the actual issues of the moment, or are you two days too late to do something about a systems failure that has already happened? If you are a SMART goal setter, then you are able to accomplish this secret.

How Do You Save Money?

August 26, 2008

A friend of mine just asked me this question: “How do you save money?” Being that I love to bargain hunt, here are some tips I use (I live in the Orlando, Florida area, so please use my local recommendations in a general sense.)
1) Fill your gas tank as slowly as possible to reduce air filling the tank instead of gas. Turn off the car (if it isn’t too hot or cold) when waiting in line for a minute or more — don’t idle your gas away!
2) Go to the thrift stores in town, especially on “off days” for better pickings. (Winter Park is fabulous for high fashion, super cheap — I have a designer purse I bought at Salvation Army for $20 — it was at least $200 initially. I’ve spent $50 and gotten a trunkload of clothes for everyone in the family. I just got a fabulous new pair of heeled comfortable slip-on sandals that actually fit my fat feet for $2 at another small thrift store — how fun is that?)
3) Remember Publix will take any other grocery stores’ coupons! Take advantage of their “loss leaders,” those buy one get one free deals they have at the front of the store, and sometimes the other discount areas have good bargains. Also consider joining a price club — I like BJ’s myself (they take coupons, too), but Costco and Sam’s can be equally great.
4) Buy coupon books for fundraisers, especially if there are three or more places you go to. The book will likely pay itself off within a week or two if you shop and go out like I do. (Check carefully for the coupons online — they don’t always work.)
5) At the 660AM website http://worl.mediawebconnect.com/ offers 50% off deals on local North Orlando restaurants on their website.
6) Sign up for Skype — I just called Korea for 2 cents a minute — I’m not kidding!!! It is usually free for calls within the US. We don’t use long distance phones anymore internationally or domestically. The service and connections are excellent!
7) Compare travel rates with www.ytbtravel.com/ against Expedia, Orbitz, AAA and others. You may save a few ten dollar bills or much more! My husband Ben not only booked his flight to Korea the day his father passed away last week, he still got a cheaper rate with YTB than the airlines offered for “emergency situations,” using YTB. Also, if you are going to book online, stay up and book between midnight and 2am — rates for airfare often drop a bit during this window.

Most importantly, just ask! Very often sales people will work a discount in just because you asked or offer a referral. One tip I’ve gotten from Dave Ramsey that I like is to respond with a sales price by saying, “That’s not good enough,” especially if you are able to pay in wonderful cold, hard, cash for a high ticket item (car, appliance, etc.). As an example, if you want the nowhere-else-to-be-found, portable, lightweight Redema Ottoman Footrest, at www.redema.us because it is great for working those long hours with feet under your desk at the computer and traveling, just e-mail me and ask for what the specials are. Well, since you asked, I’d tell you if you buy two and type in “Oviedo” in the coupon code you’ll get an automatic 15% off. But, if “that’s not good enough” — contact me at admin@redema.us. I’d love to discuss getting you an even better deal if you can help me promote the product. Just ask!
