uBreakiFix CEO Justin Wetherill spoke with Groupon about the importance of protecting your smartphone and the challenges of fixing a phone that has been dropped into a deep fryer.

On the worst thing you can do after cracking your smartphone’s glass screen

“Don’t just put it into your pocket and continue to use it,” Wetherill says. The broken glass can actually cause serious damage to the phone’s inner components and turn a relatively simple fix into a costly repair job.

On the repair process

"Look, this is something we do every day," Wetherill says. "You are not the first person to break a phone.” Collectively, uBreakiFix's highly trained technicians repair more than 20,000 devices a month, drawing from a library of high-quality parts that are tested twice before they ever get used in a repair service. Free diagnostics are a staple at all uBreakiFix locations, so customers understand the problem before any work is done.

On growing his business

uBreakiFix began as a business based out of Wetherill’s living room, and it now boasts more than 60 locations nationwide. “We are proof that the American dream is alive,” he says.

On unusual repair jobs

Wetherill remembers one fast-food employee who dropped her phone into a restaurant’s deep fryer. “It smelled pretty bad,” he said; however, the repairs were successful. Another customer lost his phone in a cement mixer. After some serious effort, the technicians were able to safely recover all of the important data, but the phone died a few hours later. As Wetherill pointed out, “it did go through a cement mixer.” Some miracles just aren’t meant to be.

On the importance of a one-day turnaround time

Repairs at uBreakiFix’s store locations can often take as little as an hour, according to Wetherill. This is a critical part of the shops' focus—something Wetherill personally understands. If forced to choose between spending the weekend without his smartphone or his left arm, he jokes that he would pick the arm. “Of course, this is assuming that there wouldn’t be any pain,” he laughs.

Since 1947, Delian Music has weathered the changing landscape of the music world—a spectator to the heyday of the synthesizer and the rise of music megastores. The neighborhood shop has seen almost as many shakeups as the industry as a whole, beginning with the Blankenship family's impromptu purchase of the shop in 1967 and continuing through moves, competition, and the wrath of landlords. However, having endured all the trials that more than 65 years can bring, Delian Music still thrives as an intimate music shop. Instruments of all styles and makes line the walls and cater to beginner musicians. Practice rooms reverberate with the sounds of experienced musicians administering private lessons. In addition, a library of sheet music allows artists to learn their favorite songs or coat their floors with something they can finally empty their spit valves onto.

Christopher Gosch has filmed more than 25 televisions shows—as well as the first underwater reality show—at exotic locations around the globe. When he isn't crafting professional videos, he draws on more than two decades of experience to snap static images during underwater photo shoots. Before each session, skilled hair and makeup artists make people look like more attractive versions of themselves with waterproof makeup while a professional wardrobe team assembles costumes and props such as mermaid fins, hula-hoops, and angel wings. Once subjects achieve their chosen looks, they dive into a swimming pool with trained assistants, who provide step-by-step instructions while Chris captures maritime memories. In addition to portrait sessions for both adults and children, Christopher also takes watery group, engagement, and wedding photos—some of which can be viewed in his online gallery.

Age-appropriate exercises are woven into the fabric of every activity, including messy art classes, school-preparation courses, and music programs, where kids can safely practice their moves instead of breakdancing in the subway.

Before they were certified Pilates, barre, and yoga instructors, nearly all the staff members at Art of Pilates were professional dancers. Their past athletic lives gave them personal insight into what the body can accomplish, from bending over backwards to outrunning embarrassment about buying the wrong water bottle. During small classes, they now assist practitioners in creating leaner, stronger physiques through core-strengthening Pilates moves, ballet positions, and yoga poses.
