  • Texas Skydiving Center
    Cindy Gibson hears a lot of ecstatic exclamations from first-time jumpers—including gratuitous use of the words "awesome" and "amazing"—but one of the most memorable remarks she ever heard came from a woman celebrating her 81st birthday. After landing, Cindy asked her why she waited so long to try skydiving. The woman replied that her husband never let her. Then she cracked a sly smile and said, "But now he's dead." Cindy certainly understands the lifelong desire to skydive. "I don't remember a time when I didn’t want to jump out of airplanes," she says. But growing up, she figured you had to be paratrooper to do it. Then as a waitress in college, she overheard some customers talking about going skydiving, and she convinced them to take her along. The more she went, the more ways she found to improve the experience. With this newfound love and knowledge of the skydiving business, she sought out a parcel of land and a passionate team and founded Texas Skydiving Center. Today, she and her team of instructors lead tandem jumps, static-line jumps, and solo free falls thousands of feet above their picturesque facility. Beyond using equipment and instructional methods that are compliant with the United States Parachute Association's standards, the instructors' claim their chief difference lies in the individual attention they give each client. Groups are kept small so that all are on a first-name basis, and the instructors ask each person what they hope to do in the air. A bunch of flips? Maybe a zen-like float? On the way down, they can even record the jumps with several filming options. An eco-friendly dropzone then awaits skydivers, where chattering guinea fowl snatch up insects, colorful songbirds flit through wildflowers, and a llama and alpaca knit their own wool into a commemorative scarf for each successful skydiver.

  • Lone Star Magni Gyro
    If you don't know what a gyroplane is, you'll find out within minutes of stepping onto the grassy field at Lone Star Magni Gyro. Just look skyward, and soon enough you'll see something that looks like the predecessor to the helicopter (this is, in fact, true). Each two-seater gyroplane is thrust forward by an engine-driven propeller, reaching speeds of up to 115 miles per hour. The gyroplanes at Lone Star Magni Gyro are some of the safest in existence, as the company's pilots and engineers routinely innovate new standards that exceed the requirements set forth by worldwide aviation organizations and Steve the Safety Guy™. So, here's the big question: do you actually get to fly one? The answer is a resounding yes. First-timers can take a gyroplane up—with an instructor's assistance, of course—on a scenic flight, while pilots-in-training can strap in for certification sessions. It's not difficult to get the hang of a Magni gyro, seeing as how it's equipped with modern technology that makes it faster, more stable, and less argumentative than the gyros of old.

  • Aprenda Con Andrea
    What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition? Aprenda Con Andrea was nominated Thumbtack's best Spanish language instructor of 2015 in the Austin area. She will tailor the classes to meet the students' needs (no one gets the same curriculum ). She works 7 days a week and is flexible to students' changing schedules. What was the inspiration to start or run this business? In August of 2014, I quit my medical Spanish translating job with the state to pursue my passion of private teaching. I was teaching as a side job, but started to receive so many requests that I decided to do it full time! What do you love most about your job? I love helping my students succeed. Nothing makes me happier than when I see them go from failing a class to getting A's & B's. I also love working with non-traditional students (people who want to learn for their job or people looking to switch careers).
