Keeping you in the loop on products and deals you may not have heard about.

Top o' the mornin' (or afternoon, depending)! I have had a carpenter at my house for the past three days. He talks to himself nonstop and he's quite entertaining. This morning as I was leaving for work, he told me the job would be done today and I could do a jig on my
new landing when I get home. I told him I would. I hope you do a jig when you see the ideas included herein. Oh and to your left, you'll see my goofy buddy Chris Ruvo. Goofy as he is, he brings some great advice for you from Don Sanders about how to make $100K a month. Enjoy this edition and send your feedback directly to me at: firstname.lastname@example.org. It may be published in a future issue of Advantages magazine. For free information on products featured in Advantages, click here: www.advantagesinfo.com. Kathy

You've Got a Fresh Mouth. The Pitch: Tess Oral Health (asi/90916)introduces personalized dental-health kits that are great for sales meetings, wellness programs, health fairs, travel clients, sleep-away camps and more. They are available for adults, teens and children. A clear bag with a business card pouch includes your choice of any toothbrush personalized with your client's logo and information, floss, timer, toothpaste and travel cap. You can customize the kit with more or fewer items to fit your budget. It comes preassembled and personalization is also available on the bag, floss and timer. For options, click here: http://brushesfast.com. The Bottom Line: The whole kit 'n' caboodle.
The Vibe The Pitch: Did you catch The Beach Boys on the recent Grammy Awards show? Not sure if they lived up to Deadmau5, pronounced “dead mouse” (I asked my kids, “what the heck is this?"), but they sure did have some good vibrations going. So does this item from Jornik (asi/63549). It's the Vibe vibration speaker. You plug it into an audio device and stick the self-stick speaker to any (preferably hollow) object and voila! Your music comes in loud and clear. Pricing starts at:10; $22.50. To get a load of Deadmau5, click here: http://www.youtube.com. To see exactly what I'm talking about as far as the speaker goes, click here: http://jornik.com/node/1398.
Glitter Bug The Pitch: Self-adhesive crystal and glitter tattoos from Rogen Studio (asi/82705) will lively up any party (I'm writing like my inner Bob Marley now). They are reusable too. Just stick them back onto the backing sheet. These are also fun for dance and spirit teams, sporting events, concerts, team meetings and more. Click here: http://rogenstudio.com. And for further info, contact the supplier at: 888.997-6436. The Bottom Line: Shine on.
Any Which Way Cut Loose The Pitch: Talk about a multi-tasker. Pinnacle Designs (asi/78140) brings you the Paracord (item PW-Wristbands). The way they describe it, it's a wristband with an adjustable strap. But that's not all (don't I sound like that Sham Wow guy?). It can be worn, unraveled and used as a boating rope, dog leash, fishing line, shoe and boot lace, mountain lion leash (say what?), material to start fire, a clothesline, tourniquet, trail marker and more. It's made from military-grade paracord.Pricing starts at: 150; $10. See it here: http://www.pinnacledesigns.com. The Bottom Line: It really does it all.
