Dan Doke discovered his passion for photography as a teenager, eventually turning his beloved hobby into a career after purchasing his first studio in his 20s. After building a thriving business with portrait and senior-photo portfolios, Doke moved his studio closer to his family and began to focus on wedding photography full time. Today, the seasoned shutterbug dangerously overloads his mantelpiece with a wealth of awards and honors, ranging from a membership in the Society of XXV to his status as a Photographic Craftsman from the Professional Photographers of America. Doke’s polished black-and-white and color prints have graced the covers of more than 30 magazines, including Gala, La Bella Bride, and Studio Photography, and his expertise won him a spot in 2005 as a photographer at an inaugural ball for President George W. Bush, where he was responsible for capturing candid portraits of heads of state, governors, lawmakers, and dignitaries. Along with the team of photographers he has personally trained, Dan produces high-contrast, post portraits of families and pets that range from traditional outdoor and studio shots to high-concept editorials.

Anyone who's ever made a new year's resolution knows that it can be difficult to stay committed to the goals you've set. Board-certified hypnotist Tom Nicoli doesn't see this common phenomenon as a matter of laziness or faulty willpower—instead, he finds that our intentions are often undermined by unconscious habits and impulses. At A Better You Hypnosis, it's his job to replace those subterranean forces with more positive ones through hypnosis.

Viewers of Dateline NBC's Ultimate Diet Challenge got a good look at the results of Nicoli's practice in 2004 when he successfully helped a pastry chef shed 40 pounds despite a job that practically demands sipping cake batter. Weight loss is a common goal for his private clients, and he's turned his experience into a set of motivational CDs that got top rating from Shape magazine. But people also turn to him simply to reduce stress and boost confidence. Over the course of several sessions, Nicoli lays the groundwork for them to reinforce their positive new habits on their own throughout their lives.

Massachusetts-made pallets support sleepers with hand tufted construction and fluffy cotton fillings catered specifically to each client's specifications. The company's direct manufacturer-to-customer supply chain erases the influence of bothersome middlemen or arrogant, cigar-chomping mattress barons. Sleepers select from a variety of comfy cushion styles, such as latex, plush top, tufted, or pocket coils, with options for all-natural materials such as Joma wool and layers of thick cotton-knit fabric.
