Q&A with Dennis Mitchell, Owner

What makes your business stand out?

I have been a Golf Teaching Professional since 1997, and have taught PGA, LPGA, scratch handicappers as well as beginners to help them achieve their maximum potential.

What inspired you or the owner (if that?s not you) to start or run this business?

I have taken many lessons from the top instructors in the USA and realized that I have much knowledge to share with others about the game I am so passionate about.

What is the best reaction you?ve ever gotten from a customer?

"Thank you for making this game so enjoyable, I have struggled with the information from others but you have made my learning process simple and easy to enjoy."

What?s your favorite part about your job?

Watching students from not being able to make consistent contact with the ball and in a few hours being able to hit quality shots that bring a smile to their faces.

The staffers at A Runner's Mind don’t just sell the shop’s precision athletic gear; they use it, too. Avid runners themselves, they prime visitors for efficient jogs or invigorating sprints with an array of apparel and hands-on training sessions. They help customers find their new sole mates with professional gait analysis, taking measurements and scrutinizing steps ranging from slow walks to full-speed runs before suggesting potential shoes from makers including Asics, Mizuno, Saucony, and New Balance. The shop also stocks equipment, helping customers stock up on water bottles, reflective vests, Nike, and The North Face running gear. In addition to hawking sportswear, the shop’s fitness experts devise 15- to 18-week training plans through their ARM Academy program, helping runners meet personal goals such as completing their first 5K or outrunning the world's slowest cheetah. The family-owned shop's commitment to running extends beyond its walls and into the local athletic community, with staffers often offering assistance at track meets and high-school events throughout the area.

Food & Wine magazine has drawn editor-in-chief Dana Cowin's expertise of all things edible for 17 years. The monthly publication introduces readers to unique ingredients and up-and-coming chefs, as well as home-entertainment tips and wine-pairing advice. Restaurant reviews suggest new eateries to try when you don't want to dirty your dishes or attempt to pronounce “worcestershire sauce,” and articles about international food provide constant culinary inspiration.

"Travel + Leisure is a celebration of travel," says editor-in-chief Nancy Novogrod. Browsing the magazine's table of contents reveals the truth of this statement; an affection for the road shines through in articles about domestic and international destinations, tech tips for sightseers, and glossy photos of stunning locales. Writers bring to life seasonal festivities around the world and weigh in on the best hotels, resorts, and wax museums with unobservant guards. Themes covered include adventure vacations, eco-travel, and kid-friendly trips.

For Books Inc., it's been a long road, and if you trace the lines back to its origins, it's California's oldest bookstore. After striking gold?literally?back in 1851, Anton Roman set up shop as a bookseller. Although the shop moved, was sold, burned down, changed hands again, and was rebuilt, the spirit remained intact, and today, multiple locations of the indie bookstore have sprouted up across The Golden State. Staff members keep the shelves lined with classic and contemporary tomes in all genres, and a myriad of book clubs help keep the love of literature alive. They also run a vibrant event program featuring author events and readings where patrons can enjoy an experience they can't download.
