Lux Nail Spa first opened the doors of its Keller studio eight years ago, but it wasn't long before the family-owned business found itself in enough demand to open a second location in Fort Worth. Between the two studios, they offer extensive manicuring and pedicuring services, body waxing, and, most recently, eyelash extensions. But their success is built upon much more than just a service menu––the staff genuinely enjoys meeting, talking, and swapping chili recipes with new people, and pampers clients with little extras including complimentary water, soda, or wine.
All Signs and Tint shrouds cars and houses in blankets of secrecy with their wide range of automotive, residential, and commercial window-tinting services. By applying a thin, gray translucent film to windows, the tinting technicians at All Signs and Tint are able to fine-tune the amount of visible light and UV radiation that enters and escapes any glass-enclosed space, keeping their interiors cool under the harsh gaze of the sun. While automotive tinting prices vary depending on the size and shape of the vehicle windows, today's Groupon will cover the tinting of an average car's side and rear windows with a 30% transparent film. Residential and commercial window tints are also available in several different levels of transparency and reflectivity, a strong combination of which can help reduce energy bills by up to 30% ($3–$7/sq. ft.). All of the window tinters at All Signs and Tint's two locations are certified installers, and can apply tint to cars, houses, boats, and glaring gold mine tunnels.
In 1976, educator, musician, and kinesiologist Robin Wes longed for a children's gym that prioritized personal growth over competition. Unveiled at a time when physical-education classes pushed students to focus almost exclusively on winning, Robin's program was swiftly adopted and is now used in more than 300 Little Gyms worldwide. Robin still pens original music to accompany lessons, which engage whippersnappers aged 4 months to 12 years with gymnastics, dance, karate, and parent and child activities.
Each of The Little Gym's classes introduces simple movements that sharpen motor skills and set brains whirring, allowing kids to progress at their own pace until they can finally build a computer out of macaroni and glitter. Staff members strive to build a base for lifelong social skills and self-assurance with each exercise, including activities rooted purely in fun, such as summer camps or birthday parties, which helped The Little Gym to earn title of #1 Birthday Chain in Parents Magazine.
Gene Olson of Gene's Janitorial Service, Inc. started his cleaning business with just one employee: himself. After years of working in the commercial cleaning business, Gene decided to take the reins and forge his own career path, beginning with a dozen clients in 1995. As he continued to broaden his skill set, including obtaining OSHA certification, he began to receive more phone calls from clients in need of a thorough cleaning service. More than 15 years later, Gene is still at the helm of his cleaning service, personally completing his clients' house, office, or retail cleaning projects, or sending one of his trained family members dressed in his clothes. Their cleaning services range from short, hour long sessions that spruce up living rooms and kitchens, to comprehensive building services that include window cleaning, pressure washing, and floor stripping.
