A love for golf pulses through the veins of the Mims family, owners of Sunset Golf Club. In the age when the jeep was invented, Mount Rushmore received its finishing touches, and the first paper airplane flew into outer space, C.B. Mims's professional golf career was blazing a trail through such PGA tournaments as the 1941 U.S. Open. While her brother slammed tee shots with the fellas, Bettye Mims Danoff, a touring professional, set out to create a brand-new league for the opposite sex, and in 1950, became 1 of the 11 founding members of the LPGA. Their passion for golf and C.B.'s passion for architecting playing grounds led to the birth of Sunset Golf Club.
Greens management and club selection eventually infused in the Mims DNA, filtering through two subsequent generations that continue to own and operate the nine-hole course to this day. Fifty years of course management saturated with passed down know-how gifts the clan with comprehensive golfing knowledge used to maintain 3,350 yards of bunkers, water hazards, and bermuda-grass greens.
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.
After playing as a defensive back for Texas A&M, Angel Rivera III joined AFL, AFL2, and IFL teams such as the San Antonio Stampede and the Dallas Knights before injuries eventually forced him into retirement. But then another chapter of his life began, and his love of the game led him to begin training local athletes. In 2010, he created All Out Sports Training to help high-school, college, and professional athletes take their game to the next level. Angel’s team of sports nuts empowers football, baseball, soccer, and basketball players by whipping them into shape and developing their sports-specific skills. The fitness team uses programs such as the Speed, Agility, and Quickness training, which gets participants racing through speed ladders, doing box jumps, and donning speed resistance belts.
The trainers also help non-athletes reach their goals through programs such as bridal boot camp, which is designed to boost self-esteem, tone bodies, and give brides more energy for the traditional 50-yard dash down the aisle. During personal and couples training, the trainers might get their clients hefting dumbbells, jumping rope, or straining against resistance bands, all depending on their individual goals.
