40 Posts of Lent

As you probably know, tomorrow, March 5 is the beginning of Lent. At church this past Sunday we were given a sheet of paper with information about Lent and some suggestions for things to do or not do (the traditional 'giving-up' things) from Ash Wednesday until Easter Sunday. In the Almsgiving section, one item in particular caught my eye. 'I will leave an encouraging or positive comment on a different Facebook page each day of Lent.'

As part of my business, I try to post positive comments for other business people so this is perfect for me. I thought about it a bit more and decided, yes, it's a commitment, but I will do it. So on Sunday afternoon I posted on Facebook that I would do this and if anyone had a suggestion for a page, they should let me know. One person responded and it was at that point I knew this was definitely meant to be. More on that in a minute.

I decided I'd write on all my clients' Facebook business pages (or their personal page if they don't have a business page) - 1 each day - so I made a list. The list filled up my 40 days, as I knew it would. Now what? I want to write on more than just my clients' pages. Ok - I'll do 2 posts per day, 1 on a client's page and 1 on another page. Twice the work but that's ok. It's a good thing.

This is where you come in. If you are my client, you know I will write something on your Facebook page one day between now and Easter, April 20. If there is something you are promoting for your business at this time, let me know and I will comment on it. If you'd like to suggest another page to me, you can do that too. It can be a business or a non-profit organization.

If you are not my client, you can also suggest a page to me. It can be your page or another business or non-profit you would like me to promote.

Now back to the person who commented on my Facebook post on Sunday asking me to post on her page. It was Elise Cantrell, author of 40 Days to Enlightened Eating. How perfect is that? 40 Days of Lent. 40 Days to Enlightened Eating? That is why I said I knew this was the right thing to do. Elise and I connected on Facebook when she was a guest on The Biz Connection Radio Show. I created and update the website for the Biz Connection as well as post on social media about the show and guests. I purchased Elise's book after listening to her on the show. It is a really good book and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to get healthy and learn about good, healthy eating.

The client page was also an easy pick. I will post on the St. Isidore Parish page, my church where I got the idea to do this and also my client - I made and update their website. Easy choices.

I urge you to like my Facebook page (facebook.com/websbywagner) and keep up with the posts I put on the other pages. Please like their pages as well. Let's share the love and support! And let me know if you decide to do this too. Anyone can join in. It'll be fun!

1 St. Isidore Parish   40 Days to Enlightened Eating
  Day 1 of Lent - Ash Wednesday. Covenant to Keep a Holy Lent was handed out at church on Sunday. One of the things I chose is 'I will leave an encouraging or positive comment on a different Facebook page each day of Lent.' I've actually decided to do 2 posts each day on a business page. Today it is here and 40 Days to Enlightened Eating - a book by Elise Cantrell. It's all about eating healthy. You start by getting through your first 40 days. What better time to start than day 1 of Lent! I'm revisiting the book and eating extremely healthy during Lent. I invite everyone to write something awesome and encouraging on Facebook pages or profiles and eat healthy during this holy season. And let me know if you're joining me. The more the merrier!   Day 1 of Lent - Ash Wednesday. What better time to start 40 Days to Enlightened Eating than day 1 of Lent?! I read the book nearly a year ago and found it encouraging and extremely helpful. I had already begun my healthy eating journey so the book reinforced what I was already doing. Had I not begun, I think the book would have been a real eye-opener! I'm revisiting the book and eating extremely healthy during Lent. I invite everyone to jump over to Amazon to pick up the Kindle version and get started today! It's totally worth your time. And if you get started but slip a little, that's ok. You'll want to get back to healthier eating because you feel so much better.

2 Fox Valley Wellness Center   Exchange Bank Coffeehouse
  Day 2 of #40postsoflent - My 1st appointment with Dr. Meress and the team at Fox Valley Wellness Center-Midwest Hyperbarics was almost a year ago. I found them on the web because they were doing a weight loss program and I couldn't lose a pound no matter what I tried. I thought I was eating healthy & should lose weight if I stayed away from desserts and junk food and carbs. Turned out I couldn't do their weight loss program but instead Dr. Meress said 'no wheat, no dairy, no sugar, no eggs'. I stopped eating all of them for 3 months. I also learned I was allergic to those foods and a few others so now I avoid them most of the time. Dr. Meress also tested my thyroid function and put me on medication for that. Headaches, skin problems, achy joints and menopause issues are all gone when I eat properly. Down 40 lbs. and so many other issues fixed, I continue with the much healthier way of eating. Do I stick to it all the time? NO! But as long as I'm good most of the time I feel much healthier. It amazes me how the food I was eating was causing most of my problems.   Day 2 of #40postsoflent - I'm not even a coffee drinker and I love to go to Exchange Bank Coffeehouse. Great food and drink (cappuccino for me), great service, great people. I work from home so I often use the coffeehouse for a meeting place. With free WiFi when we need to look at a website, it's  a great place to go for a little business meeting or just hang out. I love the vault! Hope to meet you there one day. 

3 Focus Physical Therapy   Novo Counseling
  Day 3 of #40postsoflent - We'll stick with the healthy theme today. Most people go to a physical therapist after an accident, injury, or surgery. I started going over 3 years ago and continue as needed for the tight muscles in my back and neck caused by too many hours at the computer. While I was chatting with Peggy Huhn (owner of Focus Physical Therapy, LLC) about the content for her website, I realized she could probably help me. I'm really glad I did their website because I really didn't know much about PT before then. If I would have even thought it was an option for me, I probably would have thought it was too expensive. It's not.   Day 3 of #40postsoflent - Another post on the healthy theme but this time it's mental health. When I first met Dione Gisch several years ago I didn't really know what a psychotherapist is. Now I understand much better what Dione and her associates at Novo Counseling do. She is passionate about her work and helping anyone who seeks counseling. Check out her specialties at http://novocounseling.com

Find more info about Karen and her classes on her website   Day 4 of #40postsoflent - Dr. Boll and I connected on Facebook over a year ago. He later was a guest on The Biz Connection Radio Show.

It turned out to be an all-day event with aide from many area fire departments. The oldest building on campus was a total loss but nearby buildings were saved thanks to the dedication of so many fire fighters.

29 Margaret Potratz - Shaklee   Better Life Chiropractic & Wellness
  I'm stopping by my sister's profile to say I got my Shaklee Basic H last Saturday. I mixed up a 16 oz. spray bottle with 3 drops (yes - only 3 drops of Basic H) and used it to clean off the glass on our pellet stove. It worked great! We usually use a really smelly, nasty (full of chemicals) spray that is made specifically to get all that grime off. I usually end up coughing from the fumes. I was amazed when the light mixture of Basic H actually did a better job than that nasty stuff. Yippee! Time to get rid of the smelly stuff. Contact Margaret 'Peg' Potratz for more info about Shaklee and their awesome cleaning products. They also have a great supplement line.   Stopped by another healthy place on Day 29 of ‪#‎40postsoflent‬. Today I'm at Better Life Chiropractic and Wellness with Dr. John Reitz. Good health begins with the spine. If you haven't learned that yet, you better talk to Dr. John soon. Check out his Facebook page and give him a call.

30 Classic Comfort Sandals   Lake Street Cafe
  Day 30 of #40postsoflent - Now that it's feeling like spring in Wisconsin I'm getting anxious to wear my Classic Comfort Sandals. When I stepped into these sandals, I knew immediately they were unlike any others I've ever owned. But when I wore them a while and stood in them for an extended period, I truly began to understand the comfort. They fit and contour to my feet perfectly! The red ones are so pretty but I love multi because I can wear them with so many colors. No worries about size ordering online. Just choose your normal size. They will fit. I'd recommend these sandals to anyone. As the website says 'thank your feet by slipping on a pair' - that says it all! Make sure you check out their website and order a pair today. You won't be disappointed. Day 30 of #40postsoflent takes me to LAKE STREET CAFE in Elkhart Lake. Excellent food and both casual and formal dining await you at Lake Street Cafe. They also have an extensive wine list so stop in for a fine dinner, a light lunch or simply a drink at the bar and enjoy.

34 Westward Consulting Wet Planet Whitewater Rafting & Kayaking
  My 2nd post on Day 34 of #40postsoflent is a contrast in emotions from my 1st post today. My 2nd daughter Andrea just announced her engagement to Aaron Morris.

My heart has been aching for Curt's wife Melissa and their families since Leah told me the tragic news 3 weeks ago. Today family and friends, some normally hundreds of miles apart, will come together to support Melissa. This post is my way to send my heartfelt thoughts and prayers.

 Day 35 of #40postsoflent - I'm stopping by the Nordic Heaven Greenbush USA (Northern Kettle Moraine Nordic...'s page to ask you guys to stop praying for snow! I know you love it but it's April 14. The Greenbush Ski Club puts in a lot of time on their trails each winter and they take great pride in the trails in the Kettle Moraine. Check out their website for more info about the club. http://greenbushusa.com Day 35 of #40postsoflent takes me to St. Nazianz and Miller Sprayers where my son Tony is a test engineer. He really enjoys his job and the people at Miller. In 2012 Miller was creating new marketing materials to promote their NITRO 5000 series sprayers. They came out to our farm to take several photos which are now featured in their brochures, on their website, and in magazines seen worldwide. Notice the cover photo above - that is one of the pictures taken on our farm. We have famous corn!

36 Greenbush Fire Department Enchanted Florals of Elkhart Lake
 Day 36 of #40postsoflent - I'm at the Greenbush Fire Department. The website is a work-in-progress but it's worth checking out. Don't forget to come out this summer to support the fire fighters at their annual picnic and auction - June 21 & 22. They work so hard to organize this event which helps them purchase new equipment w/o further burden to taxpayers. Day 36 of ‪#‎40postsoflent‬ - I'm at Enchanted Florals of Elkhart Lake, LLC owned and operated by Craig and Mary Forstner. With snow on the ground again this morning, I'm wondering if spring will every get here. It's a great day to stop by a place that has pretty flower arrangements all year long. Whatever your needs - wedding, prom, Mother's Day - give them a call.

37 Lakeview Landscape & Design Get Dinner on the Table
 Day 37 of #40postsoflent - I know we are back to winter in Wisconsin but if you got spring fever last week and need help with your landscaping or any type of yard work, give Tim Schweitzer at Lakeview Landscape & Design. You want to get on their list now because you know they will be super busy as soon as spring decides to stick around. Make sure you check out the bottom photo on their website - it's really cool! My 2nd stop on Day 37 is at Christa Wilson's Get Dinner on the Table LLC. Christa has turned her love for cooking into a great business. She will come to your home and cook several meals so you can concentrate on your family and still have a healthy, filling meal to put on the table. She has package deals available on her website.

38 CORSPAN - Corporate Speech Pathology Network Pourvino Wine Bar
  Day 38 of #40postsoflent - CORSPAN is a great non-profit organization for Speech Pathologists. Founded by Katie Schwartz, CORSPAN connects speech pathologists with their peers and potential clients throughout the U.S. and worldwide. They also mentor new pathologists and share information on their website. On Day 38 of #40postsoflent I'm stopping at one of the newest businesses in Plymouth - Pourvino Wine Bar. There will be a ribbon cutting at 5:00 today with Plymouth, Wisconsin Chamber of Commerce & Visitor Center at Pourvino. I'm planning on stopping in to wish Frank and Sally Maydak luck with their new biz.

  Day 39 of #40postsoflent - I saved Exotic Tans and Spa featuring Salon Connection until the end because we are working on a new website for the salon. It's not quite done yet so you'll have to check back soon. In the mean time, check out the current Exotic website. They offer all typical salon services as well as tanning, massage, and ear candling. Owner Shelly Schmitt has put together a great business. She's always trying new things to improve her business and serve her customers better. Day 39 of #40postsoflent - It's not too late - stop in at Olivü 426 - Sheboygan Store for those last minute Easter gifts.
