I am the Co-Founder and CEO of ChickAdvisor Inc.

ChickAdvisor was born out of the frustration I had when planning my wedding with Alex (the other founder) in late 2004.

I am originally from Winnipeg and moved to Toronto a number of years ago. I was researching online for hair salons and spas to get my hair and makeup done for our wedding in Winnipeg, but couldn't find any reviews. Many of the salons didn't even have proper websites. I was not prepared to trust just anyone with my hair and makeup on such an important occasion, and certainly not without a good recommendation!

I complained to Alex about the lack of available information and reviews and he said, "Well why don't we just build something like that?" That casual conversation led to the launch of ChickAdvisor.com on September 2nd 2006.

In January 2017 we launched our men's community XYStuff.com and in the fall of 2017 we launched FamilyRated.com.

'Hello Ali.'
Hoping that you, and your family, are all doing well, & in great health, happy, & living your dream!!

*I read what you wrote, about how ChickAdvisor came to fruition!!*
(which I found to be very intriguing)!!*
It can be very frustrating, for a bride to be, when she's looking for the Perfect Hair/Makeup 💇Salon ... to be *The One!!* That helps her, to look & feel 'her best,' ... On the most important, & Special Day of her Life!!
"I myself, went through something very much the same, in preparation for my wedding day Ali!!
That being said, (I can totally relate)!! The frustration, of not being able to find a proper review, on a Salon/Hair dresser, to do my hairstyle, mani/pedi for my wedding day, felt horrible!! (to say at the least)!!
Which brings me to, what I wanted to say, & thank you for.

Here goes, ... "Being a member of ChickAdvisor, is a very rewarding & exciting experience for me!!
In more ways, that I could ever possibly describe to you Ali!!"
*It has continued, (over a few years, as a member), to bring me great joy, happiness, excitement & many positive experiences!!*
This website, is something that, continually gives many women a chance to ask question (woman to woman), mother to mother, sister to sister, & so on!! In a safe, & Very respectful environment!!
*Offering Women & their partners, a chance to try something that they normally wouldn't, (or couldn't) due to their finances, and other variables!!*
Chances to discover beauty products, that come from stores, online & offline too!!
Places to chat, "🚺 chick to chick!!"
Read reviews on products, all across the board!! Giving them the information that they wanted, &/or needed!!
*I could go on, & on, (LOL), but I don't want to write a small novel here!!*
"This Social media platform, that you've created, is "Top Of The Line,"
and I just wanted for you to know how incredible it really is!!!"
Please know, that you have done something that is "truly magnificent here Ali ... & Every single time I am on this site, when finished ... I feel really good about who I am!!
"Which keeps me coming back for more!!!"
Signing off, (for now Ali).
Your ChickAdvisor member, acquaintance, & hope to become a friend.
Sincerely yours,
Tracy-Lee Ferriman xo ✨💜✨
 Thank You
