Like most success stories, Leader's Casual Furniture didn't start at the top. Founded in a single west Florida show room in 1971, the company now boasts 19 retail show rooms, a 150,000-square-foot distribution center, and an ever-increasing selection of rattan, wicker, and patio furniture. Upon browsing the virtual show room, visitors find rattan dining sets, beds, and entertainment centers as well as wicker tables with stone or glass tops. Custom fabrics and tropical-themed pieces add personal flair to interiors or exteriors, and an online room planner helps customers get a feel for how chosen pieces will fit into their homes.

Twin brothers Tom and Rusty Bolton both have a pedigree in furniture, as both have been managing Wood You Furniture franchises in separate markets since the 1980s. That longtime experience has fueled their love of real-wood furnishings, giving them an opportunity to bring the community long-lasting furniture less likely to end up in landfills as well as the chance for the pair to grow a business together. Their store decorates interiors with sofas, bedroom sets, and accessories made from finely crafted solid wood, shunning the likes of particleboard for sturdy planes of alder and parawood. Bolstered by the design skills and artistic eye of fellow team member Faith, tasteful displays fill the showroom and help customers envision what their homes would look like with each piece inside. Patios and gardens also become inviting venues for backyard barbecues with umbrellas and benches, and kids' playrooms blend utility and whimsy with a selection of tyke-size desks and bunk beds. The store’s furniture and accessories also extend to designs made for home offices, living rooms, kitchens, dining rooms, and secret passages that deserve better aesthetics.

The golfing gurus at Edwin Watts Golf Academy diagnose and correct their students' poor swing and putting habits in an effort to help them improve their shots and lower their scores. In one-on-one swing-analysis sessions, students learn a repeatable swing that eliminates tendencies they may have to slice, hook, push, or pull the ball. A special laser attaches to the end of the player's club and tracks the swing path while JC Video swing-analysis software records the session from two separate angles, lest analysis be thrown off by only looking at the golfer’s good side. Putting analysis employs Tomi technology to measure eight separate parameters of the putting stroke, from clubhead orientation at address to swing path and tempo. After swing and putting lessons, students may access the recordings on a password-protected website, so they can forward videos to friends or sports-documentary filmmakers.
