Karen and her husband set up shop in their garage, connecting new moms and dads to high-quality baby clothes, nursery furniture, and educational toys. They meticulously researched products before creating their own catalogue, and as a result watched their enterprise blossom into a lucrative online business. Today, One Step Ahead employs their own in-house design team responsible for exclusive labels of kidswear such as Cozy Cub winter wear Sun Smarties swimwear and summer gear.
Regular meetings with a Parents' Panel keep One Step Ahead designers in touch with the needs of modern parents. Seeking out their input has led the design team to create products such as a fleece-lined car seat for comfortably toting a baby in cold weather and a hanging closet organizer for managing a child's superhero identities.

Brothers Jason and Mike Baxter grew up with an intense love for muscle cars, leading them to accumulate a few over the years. But enjoying these cars wasn't enough.

From out of these simple guidelines, they started American Muscle Car Rentals.
Sporting a fleet of muscle cars that combine modern amenities with bygone-era flair, Jason and Mike outfit drivers with rides such as Dodge Challengers, Shelby Cobras, and Chevy Camaros. The cars contain up to 580 horsepower and enough clout to upgrade Pluto’s status back to planet.
