Whatz up, babies?
This week’s spotlight is a little different because instead of spotlighting a person or a group of people, I’m shining the light on a product that can benefit all of you. That’s right, I said it! And, I’m proud to say it again—can benefit all of You, in the name of love, once everyone that owns or operates a business is a part of it—and it‘s called the Frost Media App. You may ask, how can this Frost Media app benefit me? The answer is, in this thing called life, one benefit that we do have is called time, and time is very precious and waits for no one. That’s why it’s so important to utilize it well.
So in turn, with Frost Illustrated knowing this, we’re doing our part by having the Frost Media App available for you because it’s a tool to save you time, and in turn, will make your lives a little easier. For the more time you have, the more beauty, love, joy and happiness you can feel and give, if you chose too. Also, never forget about your peace of mind because having it makes your lives a little easier as well. And then, you’ll have more time to smell those beautiful roses, spend more time with your loved ones and spend more time doing whatever you please because you deserve it! And, with the Frost Media App on your Android and/or Apple smartphones and tablets, you’re never alone because it’s only a tap away.
At this time, I’m appealing to everyone that has a business—and I don’t care what kind of business it is because somewhere, somebody needs you and we want you to be available for them in their time of need. A little later in this spotlight, you’ll find out what you need to do to be included. But for right now, I’m going to take you on some journeys to capture your attention by bringing to everybody some real-life situations than can happen, and I’m gonna have a little bit of fun with it and I hope you will too. So get ready, get set, here we go!
#1.) Romantic Situation—Your significant other just called you on the phone and is extremely happy, so they say, “honey put on that red dress that I love to see you in because we’re going to an expensive restaurant and dancing tonight, so be ready when I get there.” But before you can say anything, your phone is disconnected because your monthly fee is too high and you just simply couldn’t afford it. And, you didn’t realize that you could also pay it weekly on some phones. But being the woman that you are, you’re not going to let that get you down! So now, you’re very happy and excited because you feel your relationship has been in the dump lately and maybe this could be the beginning of adding some sparks into it.
So you get up, run to your closet and get that red dress but while you’re swirling yourself around feeling this wonderful joy you realize, you’ve put on a little weight since the last time you wore it and it wouldn’t fit you anymore, so now you‘re a little disappointed. Then you go to the mirror to look at yourself and realize that your hair and nails are not looking the way that you know you like them to, so you’re a little more disappointed. And then, to put the icing on the cake, while you’re thinking about what you could do to get yourself together before your significant other gets there, you hear a little voice that says, “Mama!” Instantly, you stop dead in your tracks because you know now that you have to find a sitter in order for this to happen. But, when the Frost Media App. is the way we want it, you won’t have those kind of worries anymore because we’ll have you covered. This situation targets restaurants, telephone providers, hair stylist, nail techs, clothing stores, daycares and sitters.
#2.) Family and Friends Situation—You’re having a wonderful barbeque and you’ve invited your favorite family members and friends and everybody is having a fantastic time. But somewhere along the way, something went wrong and everyone’s stomach including yours, starts bubbling and you and your guests had to dash to the restrooms. Now your toilets are running over, so in turn, your house is a mess and your guest are leaving, so what are you going to do? Are you just going to stand there and cry, complain, pull your hair out or leave your home as well and say, I’ll deal with this later?
Well, you won’t have to go through anything such as this again once the Frost Media App is in place because you’ll have peace of mind knowing that you don’t have to waste your time looking through all of those numbers in the yellow pages. This situation targets plumbers, contractors, etc.
#3.) Oops Situation—You’re stranded, because you said something to the driver of the vehicle that you were riding with that they didn’t like and so they, put you out. And, for that moment you’re like, so what! I’ll just call my girls or my guys and they’ll come get me because they love me and they got my back. But little did you know, that when you said what you said to the driver, they had already beat you to the punch and texted everybody and told them what you said. So in turn, no one is willing to be available for you but Frost Media App will, once we‘re in place. Then, all you’ll have to do is, scroll down to a taxi cab company and they’ll come and pick you up. It’s not gonna be free but you won’t be stranded anymore and that’s what’s important.
That was fun, so now let’s get down to the real nitty gritty:
