Have you ever needed a chiropractor but didn't know who to trust?  I hurt my back seriously in 2015.  That is a major problem for someone who does what I do!  So, I needed a helluva chiropractor. I found him: he is Dr. Angelo Marinakis.

He is the owner/operator of Active Life Chiropractic.  He helped me get my back working right again.  It took a long time because it was a serious injury, but he is amazing, talented and competent.  He is also a dear friend now, since not only is he a great doc, but a great human being.  He also trains dogs.  Ask him about animal chiropractic as well.  You'll be amazed like I was.  Did you evenknow there are animal chiropractors? Yeah, that was news to me too.  BUT, they exist.  And he is one of the best. 

Here is a link to his website: https://www.activelifechirotx.com/

When we remodeled, we had to get some tile work and some new carpet.  We used Carpet Stop on a recommendation from a friend.  What a great suggestion!  They are located on Anderson Lane in Austin.  Loved their work!

For all my insurance needs, I use Phillip Moreno at Liberty Mutual Insurance.  Forget all the Geico and other insurance companies, I saved over $1100 when I switched from Allstate to Liberty Mutual.

Phillip and I are alumni from the same great university: SWTSU!  Go Bobcats!  

Phillip is very personable, a stand up guy and very knowledgeable and helpful to me whenever I need insurance help.  I can't say enough good things about him!  You can click on the link above, or call Phillip at: 1-512-258-1267 x56236 (Direct).
