The Sylvester family had bartending in its blood. Whether it was Uncle Mickey holding court with 40 years' worth of regulars or Tony Sr. mixing one of his signature Skip and Go Nakeds, they exemplified the easy grace and no-nonsense craftsmanship found in a true barman's barman. That dedication to well-poured drinks carried over to Tony Jr., who has spent the last 35 years training mixologists nationwide through the curriculum of his ABC Bartending Schools. Taught behind fully functional bars, his courses educate students in topics ranging from drink recipes and equipment setup to flair moves and alcohol awareness. His schools also emphasize employment; after graduation, students can take advantage of a nationwide job placement service to land gigs in Miami nightclubs, Las Vegas casinos, or the bar cars of Chicago's El trains.

Fred Astaire's highly experienced instructors instill clients with the subtle elegance of waltzes, fox trots, and tangos. Private introductory lessons teach a choice of over 20 styles during 40-minute sessions, as individuals or couples dance over the basics of ballroom dance, dance-floor etiquette. Group classes encourage amateur dancers to test out their skills with fellow frolickers during 40 minutes of sashaying and socializing. By the end of their introductory education, students whirl and waltz through the studio's spacious dancing environment with more confidence than the Lord of the Dance at an Irish nightclub.

Q&A with Onuora Amobi, CEO

Describe a time your services really changed a client's life for the better.

Working closely with a friend of mine, I was able to help them create the online business of their dreams and live a lifestyle of financial independence. The owner of the six-figure site?www.lasvegas-how-to.com, has complete financial independence and is able to travel and live life to the fullest because of the principles learned on learnabouttheweb.com.

Sometimes it's all about the little things in life. What supplemental courtesies do you include with your main services to leave clients with a smile on their face?

We provide coaching and tutoring to make sure our clients don't get overwhelmed with all they need to learn about starting an online business.

When and how did you first develop a passion for your work?

I developed a passion for helping others learn about online business when I started building websites over 10 years ago. I swore that if I ever became successful, I would build a resource to help others become successful as well.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?

This is really exciting and life changing for those who are able to grasp the principles being taught on the site. It could take the student from employee to employer. It changed my life that way, and I hope it can help others the same way.

Students at Fast Lane Traffic School take online and booklet traffic-violator courses to improve their driving skills and records. Fast Lane Traffic School makes it easy for drivers to take a court-mandated traffic-school course by using straightforward, easy-to-understand instruction, colorful graphics, and cartoons.

After completing the DMV-approved program, students have two chances to take the final exam and can expect a completion confirmation email upon passing it. Passing the exam is a way for drivers to potentially mask any points on their driving records. A high number of points on a record could result in higher insurance premiums, as well as loss of driving privileges and deep disappointment from dogs who just want to go for a ride.
