An Example Of Wendy VanHatten's Travel & Escapes Blog

Below is a sample of a post from a favorite blog of mine and published by Wendy VanHatten (also of VanHatten Writing Services). It is a wonderful mix of short talk and beautiful photographs. Here is a link for you to check it out and follow if you like:

San Francisco has more than hills...although the hills are impressive.

And views from those hills are equally as impressive.

Located in the heart of San Francisco's Theatre District , between Union Square and Nob Hill, is the Marine's Memorial Theatre. This historic landmark is a major player in the regional theater scene, bringing New York and regional performances.

Arthur Miller's "The Crucible" and "Death of a Salesman", Tennessee Williams "Camino Real", "Mother Courage" by Bertholt Brecht, and "Becket" by Jean name a few from 1955 to 1965.

From 1967 to 1982 other famous plays and actors appeared on stage. "Long Day's Journey Into Night" by Eugene O'Neill and "The Boys of Autumn" starring Burt Lancaster and Kirk Douglas are just a couple. Many more have followed since then.

This 650 seat theater, built in 1926, originally was home of the national radio broadcasts featuring Jack Benny, Bob Hope, Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra.

Shows, including "Forever Tango" and upcoming 10th Annual Sketchfest bring celebrities, dancers, and actors to the stage. It is definitely worth a stop when in San Francisco. Better yet...make it your destination.

Upward Trend's Company Philosophy Drives Our Business

Upward Trend has two main components in our business philosophy that drives everything that we do. Number one is the foundation that supports all of our services, and it is to help you grow your business. A business that is not growing is surely declining. There is no such thing as standing still.

We help you grow your business by using Internet tools, consulting and networking. Ours is a monthly service that performs all month every month while you are a client, always moving your influence forward and growing with accumulation and expansion. This is the main reason that we developed the extremely popular Trend Setter Package. This package keeps expanding every month, where before we would just build and website and then it would be left on its own by the owner. Now, all we do is the Trend Setter Package.

The second driving force in our business philosophy was borrowed from Anthony Robbins. He called it CANi, which stands for Constant and Never-Ending Improvement. We are constantly improving everything that we do and the products we offer. For example, after launching our Trend Setter Package officially in April of 2010, in October of 2010, we added video to every clients package at no extra charge. Since then we have produced a number of videos and posted them on our clients websites, blogs, social media and more. In addition, this expanded our social media presence by opening a YouTube account for each client to hold their videos. All of that is searchable.

Another improvement happened in the last couple of months where we are now adding custom graphic banners to many of our clients blogs. Here are some examples besides our own blog here:

These new banners improve the branding and the look dramatically and make for a much better overall product and presence.

These two business philosophies are driving our business to new heights every month, and our clients are the first beneficiary.

North Bay Truck Body Is Bob Dias. Bob Dias Is North Bay Truck Body.

North Bay Truck Body in Cordelia, CA (Fairfield) is a super star in truck body companies. I've dealt with a lot of them and have seen many operations, and North Bay Truck Body is in the best category. They are super stars for one reason and one reason only: Bob Dias.

I've known Bob Dias since 1990, when I was the commercial truck manager at Biddulph Chevrolet in Santa Rosa and I was interviewing body companies to choose a main company to use for our truck upfits. So, I called him up, told him what I was wanting and came over to Cordelia to "interview" him to see if he was a fit for what I wanted. Many hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of business and about 21 years later, I still send business to Bob Dias and do it without the slightest hesitation. He is simply the best.

Bob is real. He's no more perfect than anyone else, and he shows that vulnerability sometimes, but it is with the deepest love that I even share that and share it because it helps make him what he is. He is fair. One of the fairest people in business dealings I have dealt with in all my years of business. He is knowledgeable. When I need to know something about bodies, I call Bob. Even when I worked for another body manufacturer myself, I always knew I could count on Bob to answer any question fully and frankly and accurately. I made my decisions based on that input.

North Bay Truck Body is not cheap, but neither are the expensive. They are fair. No matter how you might look at the price however, they build nothing but quality. And, we all know that every company misses the mark from time to time, but this is certain: Bob stands behind what he does 100%. Bob makes it right.

North Bay's specialty is custom flatbed products. That is a wide range of designs and modifications! They excel at custom flatbeds and I could easily show you hundreds of photos of the trucks they've built. If you need a custom or customized flatbed, North Bay is the place to go. North Bay Truck also distributes service bodies, dump bodies and a wide range of other body applications. I'm sure whatever body you may need, North Bay can either build it for you, or tell you a great place to get it.

All of that comes from Bob who has been in the business all his life. I'm proud to call him friend as well as an Upward Trend client, and he is a vendor, or rather I am his client whenever I have need. You cannot miss with Bob Dias and North Bay Truck Body. Thanks Bob!

Call North Bay Truck Body at 707-864-2700 and visit their website at

Wendy VanHatten of VanHatten Writing Services Can Help You Get It Done

As a customer of Wendy VanHatten's, I wanted to give a personal recommendation about her services as VanHatten Writing Services.

Wendy is an editor and can help you put your best foot forward in helping you write and improve articles, essays, the next great American novel, a trade publication, you name it. If it is written, she can be of service. Want your website copy cleaned up and improved? She can help. Have an important written presentation for your boss or important clients? She can help. Want to finally get that book written? She can help. She can do it all and Wendy has helped Upward Trend and Terry Minion as well.

Wendy helped us clean up a 5-page promotional piece with outstanding results. She did it in a few hours and the price was so low I was very surprised. She has helped several of our website clients to help create better copy for their websites. But she can do so much more. . .

As we speak, Wendy is helping me get a book written and completed that has been on my agenda for several years and it is finally coming to fruition thanks to Wendy. I asked Wendy if she wouldn't mind ghost writing a book with me and she agreed. We record sessions on a digital recorder, she takes that, puts it all together, we make changes and additions, she cleans it all up and out comes a finished product. In fact, we are writing two books, one right after the other on the same subject, and in addition to that, she is helping Upward Trend with a complete employee manual and a company internal piece for the owners.

I couldn't be more pleased with each and every interaction with Wendy. She makes it all so easy for me, and her fees are so reasonable, I'm thinking of lots of projects to get accomplished! Whatever your written project needs, large or small, Wendy can help. Take it from me and my personal experience. Give her a call and discuss your needs today! You remember. . . that book that you've been thinking about for the last ten years. . . she'll help you get it in print!


Thursday, January 13, 2011 Is Upward Trend's New Trend Setter Package Client

Upward Trend is pleased to announce a new Trend Setter Package client:

Here's a bit about MemoryFly from their website:

What is MemoryFly?

MemoryFly is a place to write Memorials, share Memories, and place photos of loved ones, friends, anyone important to you that has passed away, whether from the past or present. MemoryFly will then store that information in a permanent, personal web site.

MemoryFly offers a place to share memories, photos and life experiences for all to see...
for generations to come.

The Memorial you build will exist on the Internet permanently. This provides a place where children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, and so on can come to read about the lives of their ancestors in first-hand accounts and see photos shared by family and friends over the years.

MemoryFly allows you to associate different Memorials with each other which provides your visitors the chance to view information about other family members or friends, and learn about their lives as well.

Who We Are

Thank you for visiting MemoryFly. My wife and I created MemoryFly after my mother died in 2006. At that time I realized when we pass on, very few of us are remembered beyond our immediate family. If there is no real information about who we are and what we did, our memories simply fade into the photo albums and future generations only know us through the words of those who may remember something about us.

MemoryFly is a place for everyone to share stories and life accounts of those important to them and pass that information along to all future generations. Anyone can post new Memories at any time to any Memorial. When a grandchild, great-grandchild or anyone is curious about their family roots they will be able to read first-hand accounts of the lives of those relatives.

We believe death shouldn't be shrouded in sympathy and sorrow, but a cause for celebration of the person and life you knew. Make Memorials, build family trees, and most of all share with family and friends the lives of those most important to us all. MemoryFly was built on the idea that as human beings we would like to be rememberd forever, and MemoryFly offers us the chance to never be forgotten. Let us know how we're doing.

Mark Bernard

Founder of MemoryFly

...Let Your Memories Fly ™

They Don't Get Any Better. . . Than Paul Brown

Shopping for a car or truck can be a real challenge, especially when it comes down to actually buying it and hoping you are talking to someone you can trust and be on your side. I know that feeling.

Let me introduce a friend and as good a guy as you'd ever want to meet who can be of great service to you when you need a car or truck. His name is Paul Brown and he is the Commercial/Fleet manager at Larry Geweke Ford in Yuba City and has been at the same dealership for a long time. Since I was a sales manager in the car business for many years, I would call Paul Brown a superstar. He has a huge repeat customer following and there is good reason for that. He takes great care of his customers and makes sure they get the best price and terms possible. Not only, that, he is extremely knowledgeable, so he can answer your questions with authority. Heck, when I have questions, I call him!

Paul is a family man and a leader. He is president of the Nor Cal Ford Truck Club and has been since its inception many years ago. He works for a dealer, Larry Geweke, who is also as good as they come, also a family man, community supporter, and runs a very successful business enterprise. These are just some of the reasons that Paul Brown is an excellent choice.

Next time you're thinking about a new or used car or truck (especially a Ford, but they also have Toyota, Scion, and Kia, as well as getting you whatever you want), call Paul Brown at 530-682-7693. Tell him Terry Minion of Upward Trend suggested you call. After all, I am one of his customers too! Forget about the distance if you're not near him. He delivers vehicles all over the state! Visit Paul's blog too.

She received her Doctor of Optometry degree from UC Berkeley School of Optometry and was given the Primary Care Excellency Award in 2008. Following graduate school, Dr. Ho completed her residency at the Fresno Veteran Hospital where she managed glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, age-related macular degeneration, urgent care referrals from ER and Primary Care physicians.

Dr. Phuong Ho's goals are to provide thorough and comprehensive primary care and contact lens services to patients of Solano Eye Specialists.

In her spare time Phuong likes to learn foreign languages, play basketball, and travel. She looks forward to providing quality eye care with a personal touch to patients in the Solano area.

My name is Tom Jackson, Owner/Operator of Vacaville Electric. I have been an Electrician for 15 years and have hands-on field training in Residential, Commercial and Industrial electrical work. When I was 19 years old, I took over a friend's job doing Residential electric work and have been in the Electrical industry ever since. After a few years of Residential work, I wanted to learn something new and switched to Commercial work. A couple of years later, the location of the company's work started moving too far south.

At that time, I made the decision to join Local 180 and to work locally. I was sworn (organized) in as a Residential Journeyman. After a couple years, I challenged the Board and tested out for Commercial Journeyman.

The last five years have been spent working in the Napa Valley, doing Wineries, Caves, Restaurants, Shopping Centers and Custom Homes. Last year I decided it was time to bring my experience home and begin the last company I will ever work for. My experience includes everything from Design to New Construction, Existing Construction, Remodels, Tenant Improvements and Service/maintenance of existing systems.

In July of 2009, I started Vacaville Electric. We are Locally Owned and Operated. I was born and raised in Fairfield, and have been residing in Vacaville for the last 10 years. My family is a part of this community and we are here to stay.

Vacaville Electric stands behind our work. We will get the job done right and in a timely manner. Customer satisfaction is important to us.
