Neighborhood children doing yard work for money to spend on candy is classic Americana, but for Michael Ackerman Jr, the actual work ended up being its own reward. Michael's grass-mowing hobby transformed into a full-scale lawn-care company in just a few years, after he got the word out by passing out homemade fliers and staging a town-wide game of telephone. When the buzz about his business amplified, he managed his growing list of clientele with the help of his new business partners, Michael Sr and Connie, his parents. As a team, they now tackle yard work of all kinds and have added snow removal, irrigation, and landscape lighting to their core lawn-care services.

At Fremont Laser MedSpa, Dr. James Kojian is as one of the first doctors in the Bay area to utilize this new laser treatment, and Fremont Laser Med Spa has treated more than 18,000 clients of every skin type, including more than 3,000 iLipo and Cavitation patients for fat reduction. He oversees a team of laser technicians, registered nurses, nurse practitioners, and physicians' assistants as they administer FDA-approved beautification services that keep skin looking youthful. Dr. Kojian draws on his experience in the fields of anti-aging and longevity as well as aesthetics, calibrating his arsenal of lasers to target everything from wrinkles and rosacea to unwanted hair and rebel spacecraft. Fat-liquifying lasers safely circumvent the skin to liquefy fat cells, aiming to let the body flush them away for a potential loss of inches.
For more than 35 years, Tropical Designs has installed lush, equatorial ecosystems in Wichita's homes, offices, and high-rises. A team of horticulturists, interior designers, florists, and builders pool their brawn and brain power to transform lackluster spaces into photosynthetic pleasure domes, a process they call interiorscaping. Florists work with clients to draw up arrangements spilling over with high-quality natural plants and silk housed in a vast array of containers, available for rent or purchase. To keep spaces fresh and give armchairs something to gossip about, the blooming change out program replaces bedraggled fauna for in-season, flowering bromeliads, orchids, or other fetching specimens.
