Happy Cooking Co. owners and head chefs James and Jael Tanti help students and customers build a bridge between diet and wellness, aiming to prevent dangerous inflammation and maladies through healthy food preparation. The cooks' holistic techniques and toxin-free surgical-steel utensils turn fresh ingredients into medicine, family meals into daily health regimens, and cooking into an extended metaphor for disease prevention and maintaining long-term well-being. Cooking demonstrations and hands-on classes teach students to create delicious recipes such as seven-herb chicken, homemade almond milk, or potato-leek soup, preventing harmful chemical contamination and overuse of oils with Saladmaster cookware.

Pro Tip: Experience as a Personal Stylist for Nordstrom, one of the most customer service centric company.
Founded by experienced stylist and The Fashion Institute of Los Angeles graduate Kelly K. Wilcox, My Style Advisory helps solve the perennial question of "what should I wear?" Rather than bulldozing over their clients' current tastes, she and her fellow stylists aim to make small changes with big impact. They'll work with clients to purge their closets of unflattering pieces, organize clothes, and find styles that fit and flatter their body shapes. They can even head out on shopping trips to fill in wardrobe gaps with essentials such as stylishly casual pieces or sombreros.
In 1965, Popular Mechanics ran a small classified ad for Brookstone, a new catalog company that packed its pages with functional products and detail-oriented descriptions. Brookstone quickly expanded to meet the high demand for its collection of “hard-to-find tools,” and opened the door to its first retail location in 1973. Today, Brookstone’s more than 300 nationwide retail locations allow customers to test-drive its ever-growing lineup of interesting products, which range from Bluetooth-enabled massage chairs to power adapters designed for international travelers and their electronic passports. Staying true to its roots as a catalog company, Brookstone houses an even larger selection of products, each waiting patiently to be shipped, on its website.
Clients entrust their valuables to Baker Fairview Self Storage, and the facility pulls out all the stops in order to keep those belongings safe. A computer-controlled gate greets each entrant, and a closed-circuit television system keeps constant watch over the grounds. At the storage unit—which come in a variety of sizes—the door is alarmed individually, discouraging intruders from tampering with your stuff even if they manage to get past the gate. Owners, meanwhile, can opt for cool basement units and take advantage of the packing and moving supplies available for purchase.
Sometimes extra stuff needs a new home, but it's usually not feasible to build a second, smaller home for the stuff to live in. Fortunately, Long Beach Security Storage acts as an apartment complex for wayward items, offering spaces in a variety of sizes. Security cameras and an electronic gate keep valuables inviolable. The facility even provides a complimentary truck and driver for local first-time movers, precluding the need to roll a grand piano Frogger-style through heavy traffic.
