It was supposed to be an ordinary day of shopping for Dan Wolt. But at some point between flipping through hangers and carrying duds to the fitting room, a cartoon light bulb materialized above his head. "Buying windows," he said, as the idea alchemized in his brain, "Should be as simple as buying clothes from a local boutique." At the time, Dan was working for a window company dominated by high-pressure sales tactics and long presentations. He could tell customers felt stressed. So after his epiphany, Dan went home and founded Zen Windows, a window- and door-installing business whose signature is its relaxed, user-friendly style.
Barefooted tykes aged 2 and older gambol through Badger Bouncers Playland's rainbow-hued inflatable obstacle course and pause from defying gravity to sprint to the top of a fire-truck-themed slide.

The company trains its crew members in accident prevention and conducts safety inspections to prevent the risk of dangerous conditions such as rooftop roller derbies.
In 1986, Tod Colbert opened Weather Tight Milwaukee, putting his focus, unlike many home-improvement outfits, on bolstering homes' exteriors to improve the living conditions inside. More than a quarter of a century later, the company has helped more than 15,000 clients, and Colbert's concept is still going strong. Clients can replace regular windows with energy-efficient panes that stave off extreme temperatures with multiple layers of reflective coating. The company’s capable technicians can also install doors insulated with polyurethane foam, and roofing that resists ice to keep frozen slabs from sliding off the roof and denting cars or bullying helpless recycling bins.
