           American Pool Enterprises is not the only company
           dedicated to being the best it can be. Its landlord, St.
           John Properties, also believes in going above and beyond
           expectations. “They did an excellent job preparing the
           space and making sure things are functioning well for
           us,” Naden said. And that’s what excellence is about —
           expending all your energy to do the best you can, not just
           doing enough to get by.

           “A couple of weeks ago, [St. John Properties] dropped
           off a welcome mat with our name on it. That was really
           thoughtful.” Naden cited other attentive actions by St. John
           Properties as well, including its speedy snow removal during
           the winter season and its regular care of the grass. When

      it makes sense,” said Rick Hogue, owner of GPG. The
      webcams inside the computers allow instructors to
      teach over the Internet. The company also sells instru-
      ments, provides repairs and gives lessons for guitar,
      piano, bass, drums and voice — not just in the United
      States but also to clients around the globe. One of
      GPG’s instructors has risen at 4 a.m. to give lessons to
      soldiers in Korea.

      “We sell everything from beginner to the most expensive
      guitars you can buy,” Hogue said. “We have Paul Reed
      Smith, Taylor, Eastman and other makes, and we make
      our own handmade guitars called Old Dogs with New
      Tricks. High-end is our specialty.” GPG has had
      many notable guitar clients — such as Stevie Ray
      Vaughn and Bob Dylan, just to name a few.

      When asked why the company has been such
      a success, Hogue replied, “Tenacity. Going to
      work every day. Continuing to push the envelope.
      We’re in the shadow of a bunch of giants who
      are more well-funded than we are.”

                                                 Americans are plagued by a chronic sleep disorder

                                                 are insomnia, sleep apnea and restless leg syndrome

Jume Akinnagbe founded Rest Assured Sleep Centers
five years ago, and today, her firm has grown to include
three physicians. The center helps patients overcome their
difficulties with sleep without the use of unnecessary
medication. “We are a progressive company in regard to
the way we treat patients,” Akinnagbe said. “We don’t first
address the problem with medication — we try therapy
first, because you can become dependent on many of the
sleep-disorder drugs.”

“We had a patient who suffered from insomnia and was dependent
on medication to go to sleep,” Akinnagbe recalled. “We put
treatment plans in place, and now, she no longer depends on the
medication. We found the root cause of her problem.”

Rest Assured Sleep Centers, the only sleep center in Arundel
County, is a comprehensive sleep diagnostic facility, specializing in
the treatment of sleep apnea. “There’s a common misconception
with sleep apnea that you have to be overweight. But, really, if you
stop breathing during the night, snore or are chronically tired, sleep
apnea could be the problem,” Akinnagbe pointed out.

Ready to begin? The most important thing you’ll need is
a hammock. It’s a comfortable place to kick back and put
up your feet, right in your backyard. There are some basic
points to consider before buying one: construction quality,
general styling and accessories and care.

Find the Perfect Hammock for Your Zone
Construction is the most important factor because there
are safety issues involved. But don’t stress if you’re not a
hammock expert.

“Pay attention to the weight and amount of rope in the bed,”
says Laurie Rudd, creative director for Hatteras Hammocks.
“The more rope there is, the stronger and the more comfortable
the hammock will be.” Heavy-duty steel-end hardware also
should come with your hammock for hanging safely. Make sure
the structure where you will hang it can hold the weight you
plan to place inside. Most hammocks are made for two-person
lounging with a weight capacity in excess of 400 pounds.

Accessorize Your Way to Relaxation
When it comes to relaxation, accessories are key. With the abil-

up all kinds of opportunities for your zone to move anywhere
that feels right. The most popular and safest stands available
are made of steel and easily assemble without the need for any
tools. Most hammock stands can hold 450 to 600 pounds.

Another popular accessory is the hammock pillow. Weather-
resistant fabrics are used to craft large, beautiful hammock
pillows that accommodate two-person relaxing. Add to                                                                            ing
