The sound engineers at Strongside Studios usher singers, dancers, and musicians of all ages into the spotlight at their professional recording studio. They foster a relaxed recording environment, welcoming groups and solo artists in their soundproof booths to lay down R&B, hip-hop, pop, rock, and country tracks. And they'll even help folks with no recording experience create a Christmas album or record a steamy Valentine's Day song to present to their loved one. Kids get into the mix at birthday parties, during which each party-goer gets to records the song of their choice. To conclude the festivities, they unite the group to harmonize for a recording of Happy Birthday, which all the attendants take home on a CD to play for their parents or to sell boot-leg copies of on the playground.

They also welcome folks to use their space to get fit, as they offer fitness classes including boot-camp and Zumba, whose high-energy dance moves might prep a budding music-video star.

Although Rajendra Hariprashad was in the Marines, his most trusted weapon—the one that launched him into private enterprise as a business owner—was not a rifle, but a 1998 Mitsubishi Eclipse. During his four years of service, he taught students behind the wheel of his own compact sports car. When he was discharged and went back to New York, he shelved law-enforcement career ambitions and opened Ena's Driving School.

Today, the school teaches road safety to new and seasoned drivers alike. Along with prelicensing and defensive-driving classes, instructors lead motorcycle, CDL truck, and CDL bus lessons. Rajendra's business savvy and entrepreneurial acumen have won him press in Forbes, Fox Business, USA Today, and other media outlets. He even partnered with truTV's Impractical Jokers to prank students who were behind the wheel for the first time. Afterward, several neighbors and new customers called to inquire about classes and how to fit a spring-rigged banana-cream pie into the glove compartment.

Rajendra's law-enforcement career continues to remain on hold. "I'm lucky," he says about his driving school and other business ventures. "This is fun. I want to be in the open road."

During hands-on lessons, students of all ages take the wheel to practice parallel parking and find a parking space that's not in the middle of a monster-truck arena. Students satisfy the state's pre-licensing mandate with five-hour courses that span topics such as driving within the transportation system and developing appropriate habits and skills. Those who enroll in the school's defensive-driving course get 10% off on any insurance purchased in New York for a period of three years.

During open paint sessions, participants choose a piece of pottery from the overflowing shelves that line the room, using stencils and paints to add their own personal touches to plates, mugs, and figurines. Pottery classes let students delve into the intricacies of clay shaping, with instructors teaching their charges how to bring forth new objects from shapeless lumps of clay, and how much paprika to add to play-doh before it’s edible. After finishing their sculpting, pupils learn how to paint and glaze their works, creating unique keepsakes from start to finish.
