K.I.S.S. Dog Training started with a Part-Time job at a local pet store after I had quit my “real” job to become a stay at home dad… That turned into not only a dog training position but also becoming an Area Trainer. As I progressed, I really wanted to help folks in their home and tackle more complicated cases and in 2010 K.I.S.S. Dog Training was born. I use positive scientific based training methods based in learning theory. That means I am going to focus on what you want and reward it vs. always being concerned with mistakes and trying to correct them. Don’t get me wrong there might be times where we will use cause and effect to teach but focusing on what we want seems to make training more fun for everyone…. And if it is not fun for the dog and you then practice will suffer and without practice, you are not going to achieve much… Find out more about K.I.S.S. Dog Training here!

Lance Burnside of Edward Jones – I recently moved my Edward Jones office into Shawnee. I retired after a 24 year Army career, during which I would take time to teach and help my Soldiers with their financial needs. Upon retiring, it was a natural step coming to Edward Jones so I could help more people with their financial needs. This is especially true after seeing how my loved ones are struggling after poor financial planning and I want to make sure no one struggles the way they have.

Mutual Savings Association is a local community bank founded in 1888. As a mortgage lender, they are a portfolio lender that still does land loans, development loans, and construction-perm loans that a lot of lenders have gotten away from handling. Even for the standard primary residence purchase/refinance, they keep the servicing in-house so clients will always deal with the same loan officer throughout the life of their loan and not have to worry about their servicing being sold off to some big bank that they have no relationship with. As well as mortgage loans, they handle all types of deposit accounts, have salaried financial advisors, and have their own in-house insurance agency where the agents are salaried by the bank as well. One stop shopping for your financial needs at its finest! Find out more about Mutual Savings Association here!
