Whether they are expanding their business network, learning a complicated new process, or trying to get on a first-name basis with their mailman, many professionals wish they had a stronger memory. With Planet Freedom's online memory workshops, the brain training takes place at the student's leisure. Exercises include efficiency lessons and other memory-boosting practices.
Planet Freedom's memory videos were created by its president, Tom Weber. A professional speaker with more than 12,000 presentations under his belt, Tom has a strong sense of which techniques work and which don't. But teaching to him isn't only about effectiveness—it's about fun. An avid scuba diver, mountaineer, gorilla trekker, and Ironman racer, Tom loves taking risks and expanding his own horizons. He brings a similar sense of adventure to Planet Freedom, which often reflects his unique blend of seriousness and fun.
The people at Network Entertainment Studios spend a lot of time at musical performances, dance recitals, and sporting events. It's not that they're just extraordinarily popular or have huge extended families—they're there making sure that the people who are having their big day can remember it in clear audio and video for decades to come. The company started with one camera, one actor, and one director, and at first the founders came together with the goal of creating web series, and to create an online presence for artists and businesses. They still find time for their own creative work, but they've expanded to serve local businesses with animated promos, musicians with music videos, animated promos, explainer videos, and artists' live performances. From storyboarding to sound effects, the staff provide in-depth guidance at every step of the way to a work of moving art.

In Italian, sentieri Italiani means "Italian paths"—something with which Daniela Cavallero is very familiar. A native of Italy's Piemonte region, Cavallero imagined a place where she could bestow the rich heritage and language of her homeland upon the citizens of her new home in Chicago. She spun her vision into a reality, summoning a squadron of fluent Italian speakers to lead Sentieri Italian's language and culture classes. During each lesson, these well-versed instructors strive to teach pupils of all experience levels more than just language skills—they also give them a thorough rundown of Italian culture and history.
The team also spreads its wealth of knowledge of all things Italian beyond the classroom. To prep travelers for annual excursions to Italy, staffers devise detailed cultural training to ensure travelers know basic phrases and can quickly catch leaning towers. They also arrange regular cultural and dining events and organize a trove of services, including translations, genealogical studies, and assistance in procuring Italian citizenship.
Sara McIntosh—the master cobbler behind the Chicago School of Shoemaking—draws on more than 35 years of experience in her craft. Among the things that make the school unique is that they teach their own version of the out-stitch shoemaking technique. Preferred by artisans who prize sustainability over industrial methods, that approach adapts easily to smaller shops with very few elves.
Sewing machines and wooden tables await eager hands inside the school. While an exhaust hood keeps the air fresh, students work away at footwear ranging from moccasins and sandals to desert boots. Instructors also teach leather-working techniques that produce stylish jewelry and handbags.
After years of research and exercise, Dr. John Spencer Ellis felt he'd hit upon a premium fitness formula for producing athletes. Inviting Kelli Calabrese, a master trainer, to help him develop a curriculum, the two pooled their exercise knowledge—which amounted to 45 years of industry experience and 35 fitness, nutrition, and lifestyle certifications. From this wealth of training and education, they created Intense Mixed Performance Accelerated Cross Training, or IMPACT Fitness Boot Camp.
Their formula requires that each workout begin with a sports-conditioning-style dynamic warm-up, before proceeding into speed, agility, and quickness training, which allows patrons to more effectively chase cars down the highway. They then challenge students with full-body-strength conditioning, which focuses on all the muscles versus only the muscle group you want to train, and a high-intensity session of cardio training. Though the formula always remains the same, the exercises vary from session to session. One day, patrons might heave medicine balls and sprints, the next, they might jump rope and stretch TRX bands.
