The Better Golf Academy emerged from a straightforward goal: golf instructor James Pugliese wanted to develop a curriculum that would simplify the golf swing. Though originally designed for children, Pugliese's six-step approach helps golfers of all ages on their path to a straighter and longer ball flight free of upside-down loop. Golfers who learn under his curriculum will zero in on the mechanics for a successful grip, setup, takeaway, backswing, downswing, and finish, shaping their swing in easy-to-understand increments. Pugliese's model has proven so effective that it now has grown into an international, spikey-soled footprint.

Before she was the personal makeup artist to Barack Obama during his campaign for the presidency, Jennifer Bradley was a stage and screen actress who struggled with acne-prone skin. To combat it, she started creating her own skincare formulas that were free of mineral oils, fragrances, and fillers. Those formulas soon became her business, Jennifer Bradley Corporation products, which she now wields as a makeup artist to the stars.

In addition to being touted in the pages of People and US Weekly, her makeup and skincare lines have graced the faces of Michelle Obama, Kelly Clarkson and Pamela Anderson. She regularly teaches clients how to become their own makeup masters during Makeup 101 classes, where she shows them how to cover age spots, contour cheekbones, and create a smoky eye that doesn't induce cravings for barbecue.

The sessions culminate in a full musical-theater production that gives students a chance to show off in front of casting directors. Though students are expected to take their work seriously, no prior experience is required, and applicants don't have to take part in auditions or Pippin trivia contests to get in.
