Third & Lennox


Clean With Envy: Spring Cleaning Gets a Makeover Thanks to Third & Lennox Warning: Reading this is going to make you immediately think of all those places in your house that may or may not be so clean — like that chandelier in your foyer,
the inside of your kitchen cabinets, behind that hutch in your dining room, and underneath your bathroom sink. Oh, your oven — how’s that looking right now? And while we’re here, what’s going on in your pantry, closet and basement?
So, you’re going to feel a bit of dread and then you’re going to feel lifted (almost exhilarated) by the sheer thought of Third & Lennox, a boutique professional home detailing, organization and styling service that takes practical perfection to the next level.

Patty MacKinney and Lara Duffy, this in-demand service will make sure every last square inch your home is sparkling. Don’t need the whole shebang? Third & Lennox offers a popular refresh service too. Also sought after for their Instagram-worthy

Square One Credit Management 


Our Mission at Square One Credit Management is to Empowers Every Individual To Achieve The Credit Scores They Deserve & Enjoy A Lifestyle Of Greater Opportunity.​

We are more than credit repair; we are dedicated to helping you develop a healthier relationship with your credit by empowering you with the knowledge on how credit works and how to build positive credit while we repair any derogatory remarks. Our focus is on you, your story, and your determination to make a change. We want to help you to make a significant, long-lasting lifestyle change that can give you access to your financial dreams.

Lifetime score improvement is more than just removing negative items on your report – we’ll repair your credit history, and we’ll do it better than the rest – but we’re focused on the story behind that credit score and helping rewrite it to reflect who you are today.

Living on the Smile Side of Life

In 2010, Noreen Braman, who had already reinvented herself after a contentious divorce-was reeling from a corporate downsizing, dealing with a economic recession of historic proportions, and facing her own midlife issues. Soon her skills as a strategic communications professional, humorist and performer would send her in a new direction.

By the end of that year, she became a certified Laughter Yoga Leader, had her mind blown at a conference called “Can Humor Save the World” and studied the Psychology of Laughter (Here’s an article by the teacher of that course) at Rutgers University. She added certification in Laughter Wellness, studied the Science of Happiness through  UC Berkeley, joined the Association for Applied & Therapeutic Humor (AATH) and has been presenting laughter for the health of it through her Smile Side of Life Laughter & Happiness Club presentations ever since. She continues to add to her knowledge base through continuing education and certifications, workshops, conferences and seminars.

Noreen credits Dr. Paul McGhee’s book “Humor as Survival Training for a Stressed Out World” as well as Linda Richman’s “I’d Rather Laugh: How to Be Happy Even if Life has Other Plans for You,” for helping her understand the importance of humor and laughter to all humans. With the physical and emotional health benefits that come with humor, laughter and mindfulness, Noreen deals with her fibromyalgia and thyroid disease with humor, reminding us all that yesterday’s problem can be today’s funny story.

Noreen is an Instructor at the Osher Lifelong Learning Center at Rutgers, and has presented laughter and other well-being habits to groups of all ages!






The Credit Dude – Clean Slate Credit Solutions

Clean Slate Credit Solutions was founded in February 2010. We have helped hundreds of people achieve the creditworthiness they deserve and changed their life by making their dreams into reality. Whether it was buying a new home, getting approved for an auto loan, raising their credit score or removing negative items from their credit report, we have a proven track record to help them achieve their goals.

After successfully helping hundreds of people fix their credit, we saw an increasing need from business owners who were desperately looking for financing for their business and not being able to find it. We are able to help business owners with not only building their business credit, but help them structure their business so that they are fundable in the eyes of the lender, and when done correctly, having bad credit will not be a factor or prevent you from getting approved.
