Jess's abilities with a tarot deck aren't the result of some sudden insight—rather, they're from years of practice. She received her first deck when she was 11, and studiously pored over the craft's tomes to learn the meanings of each card and the accompanying layouts. As her feel for the craft grew, Jess found that she no longer needed the books for reference, relying instead on her cultivated intuition. Now, more than 20 years later, Jess uses these tarot-card readings to help her clients settle their anxieties about love, the future, and seemingly portentous bridge tricks. As a bilingual reader, Jess also offers her services in Spanish.

Ten to fifteen minutes. That's all the time it takes for the tanning experts at Simply Sunless to update pallid skin with a beach-ready bronze color—and they accomplish this feat without using wish-granting genies.

They can also supply their customers with specialty lotions designed to enhance and prolong the life of sun-kissed hues. Simply Sunless' tanning team works out of a spa room near downtown Ocala, and they can also travel to homes for on-location tanning.
