There are good tint jobs, and bad tint jobs. Your car deserves a good one. That's what Cen Cal Tinting specializes in.
Owner Daniel Macias has been on his own for a little over a year, and has been providing excellent mobile window tinting services to clients all over the Fresno-Clovis area. He uses the most reputable vendor in the industry to source the film for his jobs, and has implemented an extremely precise instrument for cutting exact measurements to place on each car.
I'm sure you've seen a bad or outdated tinting job before. Daniel and I talked about all the different ways a tint job can go wrong- bubbling, discoloring, etc. If it's true that your car represents you, the tint job should be done well.
That's why Daniel keeps his work top quality, to make sure each customer is extremely satisfied with the results for the lifetime of the tint job. There's even a variety of different types of tints that can be installed as well, from the traditional dark tints to even some lighter ones that can deflect more light.
If you've got a tint job that either wasn't done well or needs to be replaced, he can also do window tint removing- a job that should only be done by a professional. He explained that it's quite a complicated process, but a professional like him can get it done faster and with less headache.
Window tinting is a great value, but a lot of us are unable to go to a shop, and leave our car or wait. That's why Daniel has taken his business mobile. If you can't get out to go get your car tinted, he can come to you!
Right now, he's offering 15% OFF to any 559 Review readers. If you're in need of a tint job on your car, go check him out and mention that you heard about his business here.

Now is the perfect time to pick up a new hobby, and what better hobby to pick than music? Music is always a great thing to learn, and the piano is one of the most classic instruments around.
Fresno now has an official Piano Coach as well!
In fact, today I spoke with Shannon, the Piano Coach herself, and learned about her background in music and her passion for teaching the piano to people of all ages.
She provides lessons for everyone both virtually and in her home studio. That means that even with the current coronavirus restrictions, you can still make time for your piano lessons provided you have access to one at home. It's a great way as well for her to help people beyond the Central Valley as she has students all across the country. So if you know someone who wants a good piano coach, they don't even have to live in Fresno!
Shannon has been playing piano since her early childhood, and has been teaching it since high school. She has experience working in a music academy as well. With all that experience under her belt, coining the nickname "The Piano Coach" is definitely warranted. If you're looking for a great teacher to start learning a new instrument, you've now found one!
You can find more information by following her on social media, where she shares interesting facts and stories related to music and loves to interact with her followers. Her Instagram handle is @the.piano.coach, or you can find her on Facebook by clicking here.
If you're thinking about scheduling a lesson, or have always wanted to learn the piano but have never gotten around to doing it, she's currently running a promotion. If you book an appointment before the end of March, you'll get 50% off your first lesson!
So don't wait, get your half off lesson and start learning to play the piano taught by The Piano Coach!
School may be cancelled until after summer break, but parents are already looking for the best preschools around for their kids to attend this fall. For parents in the Clovis area, taking a look at St. Peter Precious Lambs Learning Academy will be a must.
It's a brand new preschool opening up near the newer Clovis developments south of Community Regional Hospital and it boasts a great program that is sure to satisfy both parents and kids!
St. Peter will provide flexibility with both half and full day options depending on the parents needs, and will have very affordable and competitive tuition rates that are sure to pique your interest.
The preschool was established by St. Peter Lutheran Church and its facility will be attached to the church's campus over at Temperance and Gettysburg. St. Peter is a member of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod, and the preschool's curriculum has been developed from the synod's early childhood education blueprint. It will combine a faith based focus common seen at Fresno and Clovis Christian Schools, with all the necessary elements of general early childhood learning.
The director, Karla Opperman, brings many years of experience in early childhood education and development. Her passion for teaching means your kids will be taught by someone who truly cares about delivering a positive environment for learning to young minds.
2020-2021 will be the first school year it is officially open and they are taking applications for enrollment already! If you'd like to learn more, or get your child enrolled, contact them at (559) 291-1601.
A website is currently being developed as well and is planning to publish within the next two weeks, along with social media pages on Facebook and Instagram.
If you'd like to find a preschool for your child that provides a clean, positive environment, a solid educational philosophy, all at a great rate, then check out St. Peter!
As our general population continues to age, in-home care providers like Lenity Solutions are high in demand. Finding a provider for these services that approaches their job with care and compassion is highly sought after, and Lenity is top-notch.
Lenity has been serving the Central Valley for just over a year, but they've grown quite a bit over that time. It's a testament to the quality of service they provide to their patients and their family.
With a team of over 30 care givers spanning across the Central Valley from Merced to Tulare providing quality, they provide in-home caregiving services to elderly and disabled individuals. This ranges from help with day-to-day activities including running errands and going to doctor's appointments to companionship and one-on-one activities in assisted living facilities.
The caregivers come out directly to their patients, either in home or at a facility, and are available at a wide range of hours including 24/7. It's up to the client's needs and preferences, which makes it a flexible and customizable service.
This flexibility in providing services is made possible by the 3 owners of Lenity Solutions who each have over 20 years of experience in this field. With that comes industry leading knowledge that allows them to create a model that works for the patients, and train their caregivers to provide only the most excellent service.
Finding a caregiver service for a family member, friend, or loved one is never a task to take lightly. You want to make sure they get the best care and attention, and Lenity is a great source for finding just that.
If you or a loved one is in need of in-home caregiving, you'll definitely want to reach out to Lenity Solutions.

Buying a home is one of the biggest decisions you'll make in life. It goes without saying that you want to make sure the people that help make it possible are the best in the business.
With The Martinez Team, you won't have a doubt in your mind!
Owners Gracelyn and Frankie go above and beyond to make sure their clients' home buying or selling experience goes well. They told me stories about mowing the neighbors lawn before showing a home or taking pictures, touching up paint jobs, and more.
I had never heard of a real estate team that was that invested in a quality customer experience. They're really passionate about making sure their client's get a great deal, and it shows.
Frankie told me his team's focus is placed so strongly on providing great experience specifically because of how big of an investment the home buying or selling process is for a client. Most real estate agents never take the time to get to know their clients so well, and even fewer go to such lengths to take care of every step in the process.
Rather than having their attention on churning business through the pipeline, they want to make sure quality is at the forefront.
To do this, they've put together a great team. In addition to other local agents, they also have Ed and Monica who take care of the photography and marketing. They make sure they're able to provide everything they can under one roof so they can ensure a great process.
Servicing clients all over the Central Valley, they can help you whether you're looking to buy or sell- and their team is growing too!
With 10+ years of experience in real estate, they not only bring a client-centered approach to the table, but industry knowledge and expertise as well.
Not only that, but they're some of the nicest people I've had the pleasure of meeting! Very kind, welcoming, and generous. It's great to see such people serving others in our community.
If you're looking to buy or sell in the Central Valley, check out Martinez Team Realty!

According to ABC 30 Fresno, a shelter in place order was issued by the City of Fresno starting midnight Thursday and running through March 31st.
That means people will only be able to leave their homes for essential services. However, quite a few businesses are still allowed to operate so this network can still provide support for anyone who needs it.
If you're in that group that's listed, participate in the support network through this blog and let us know how we can continue to support you despite everything that's going on.
We're here for local businesses throughout this challenging time.
You can find the link to the article here: https://abc30.com/society/fresno-issues-shelter-in-place-order-starting-thursday/6024865/
Due to the coronavirus outbreak, certain public health measures have been enacted by Governor Newsom to help stop the spread of the virus before things get out of control.
Those measures, as good as they are for keeping infection rates down, have negatively impacted locally owned businesses in the Fresno community by forcing them to adjust their hours, go to take out or delivery only, etc.
These local businesses need our help. We need to rally together to and support them in whatever way we can.
That's why I'm forming a support network through this blog.
You can join it by visiting this website regularly to check out featured businesses, and by liking and participating in the Instagram and Facebook pages.
If you're a business, the following things are open to you:
Share this as well if you have connections or live in the Fresno-Clovis area.
If you own a business, like the pages and participate so we can help you out.
This does not cost any money. This is bigger than that. It's about community.
These are difficult times, but we'll get through it together. Let's #support559!
As an entrepreneur, I find myself often feeling out of place with most people. Entrepreneur’s have an extreme, almost obsessive passion for what they do, and spend hours working to make their dream a reality- something a lot of people don’t really understand.
I didn’t feel that way talking to local entrepreneur Glory Salas though. She’s got the mind of an entrepreneur through and h through, and she’s using it to build an Isagenix empire.
Isagenix is a company that sells nutritional/dietary supplements and personal care products, and they have loads of people who use and attest to the effectiveness of their products.
Glory told me story after story of people who’ve been positively affected by using Isagenix, coupled with a change in lifestyle that they’re newfound energy and health afforded them. Not only that, but there are a lot of people who have improved their lives professionally through the Isagenix team.
What seems truly special about the experience Glory and others have had through Isagenix is the level of support and a life changing career that the organization offers. Glory told me how her life has been positively affected through the support and mentorship of her team members even through some of the toughest moments of her life.
Glory herself has a team of over 200 people all over the United States that are helping her carve out her own empire within the Isagenix brand. She works hard because her dream is to build a better life for her family.
We talked at length about what separates the mind of an entrepreneur from the rest of society. Entrepreneurs pour every ounce of themselves into their work. in the end, they not only see the essence of themselves reflected in their results, but are satisfied in the fact that other people benefit from their effort.
Glory’s biggest satisfaction in her work is that she gets to help people make a better life for themselves. That’s about the best feeling there is.
If you’re looking to feel better, lose weight, get more energy, or turn your life around, you might want to check it out.
