When Kristin realized that once the eighth-grade school year ended, she and her friends would be parceled out to different high-schools, she knew she had to do something. Since her time-freezing machine was in the shop, she tried the next best thing: she planned, decorated, and threw the most memorable party she could. And she's been helping people make memories ever since.

Like a genial, mind-reading butler, she keeps all manner of events running smoothly, straightening out party favors at baby showers and keeping caterers on task for graduation parties. Her directorial acumen hits a fever pitch with the all-encompassing Bridal Bliss packages for weddings. Starting as early as eight weeks before the big day, Kristin starts laying down the groundwork. She discusses etiquette, allays fears, and draws up timelines and plans. On the day of the wedding, she keeps everyone on track, organizing vendors, coordinating the receiving line, and setting up for the reception.

Penny White’s Golf Academy espouses the methods of legendary golfer Ben Hogan, a lifelong student of the game whose techniques of delayed release and upright swing plane have helped players of every stripe produce sound, repeatable shots. The academy’s sessions cover every part of the golf swing for all age groups, allowing pupils to understand their own technique so they can coach themselves and yell at their reflection in the mirror if they make a mistake. Starting from a flawless preset routine, instructors illustrate how the mechanics of a delayed release coupled with the proper swing plane can lead to higher club-head speed and thus more distance. All instruction takes place either on the range or in the academy’s video golf simulator, a sophisticated bit of technology that further allows the golfer to see the reasoning behind their own methods.
