We started the show off with Amy Pedersen and Jennifer Daniels, co-founders of the Marietta, based shapewear firm Slimpressions. According to Amy and Jennifer Slimpressions is a "flab-u-less" line of everyday shapewear designed to slim a woman's arms, back and midriff. Slimpressions' garments create an illusion of weight reduction boosting confidence while sculpting the top half of a woman's body. These two moms said they came up with the idea because they needed a solution to tackle their own flaby, flappy arms.

Next up we had on Gary Valvo and Mike Carney, owners of Mr. Handyman's 300th franchise in Peachtree City. Gary and Mike invested in the full-service home repair and maintenance franchise after realizing the demand for reliable and affordable maintenance services in the Atlanta area. They felt that as more homeowners decide to stay put during this sluggish real estate market that the demand for quiality home improvement services is greater than ever before. Gary explained that in today's economy more and more homeowners are investing in monor repairs rather than do large scale remodelling projects or buy a new home. And with people busier than ever they just don't have the time to do things themselves any more. So Mr Handyman helps its clients shrink their nagging to-do lists. To learn more about Mr Handyman please go to their website www.mrhandyman.com and find the franchise nearest you. Mike and Gary are in the Coweta-Fayette area.
