FEBRUERY 2013

from the publisher

VALETINE’S DAY – BCS CHAMPIONS – FREEDOM CLIMB February is for lovers, and the one day to celebrate with your significant other is going to be February 14 – Valentine’s Day! Flowers, jewelry, chocolates or dinner are some of the usual ways to show how much you care. This year, maybe we can look for some unusual ways to celebrate our feelings? One way may be to look up the variety of ways the day is commemorated around the world. In doing my own research, I found this website - www.stvalentinesday. org. I was intrigued to find how many different ways there are to reaffirm ones love. Additionally, the progression of the festival through time was also enlightening. So, however or wherever you choose to observe the occasion, I wish you and yours a memorable time. Speaking of memories, our cover story is about some local residents who will share their revelations on how they met and fell in love. One couple met on a blind date, another on the job, and one even found each other on J-Date, a Jewish dating website. Their stories are interesting and heartwarming. I trust you will reminisce back on how the one you are with first touched your heart. As for Candy and I, it was a long, long time ago, and she played hard to get. In the end, well, I got my girl. The BCS Championship game was in South Florida and brought in a large economic boost to the area. Unfortunately, this may be the last time we see the event here in our backyard, unless we’re selected

Tina Yeager: Going to the ends of the earth to fight for freedom again by some stroke of luck. With other cities building new megastadiums, the competition is pretty tough for the highly coveted title game. Still, the Crimson Tide rolled to its third championship in four years. The Alabama team is showing they are a dynasty to be reckoned with for some time. As for the Fighting Irish, they can be proud of their accomplishment of making it the championship game for the first time in twenty years. Not one preseason poll had Notre Dame finishing anywhere close to a BCS title. Congratulations to both programs. Maybe a team from the State of Florida will be there next year? I’d like to give a shout-out to two ordinary women who accomplish some extraordinary feats as well. Tina Yeager and Jen Klaassens will climb one of the highest mountains in the world to promote a project which brings freedom to women. The Freedom Climb is a symbolic gesture of the struggle for freedom they face every day. From April 9 to 25, 44 women from all over the world will meet in Nepal and trek to the base camp of Mt. Everest and then

summit the neighbouring peak of Kala Phattar. When the climbers stand at the top of Kala Phattar, they will be declaring life and freedom for those who cannot speak for themselves. w w w. T h e F r e e d o m C l i m b . n e t . Godspeed to Jen & Tina. You are both remarkable! Lastly, Lifestyle Publications knows how seriously our readers value their health. Healthcare has never played a more prevalent role in today’s society. We have formed an exclusive partnership with Holy Cross Hospital, to bring you face to face with some of the leading specialists who can inform, educate, and shine a light on the best preventative measures and latest treatments available. The first seminar will be taking place this February and you can read about it in this issue. I wish you a Great February and a Happy Valentine’s Day! As Always, Enjoy the Lifestyle™

NEWS&NOTES KIM L. CAVENDISH, the president and CEO of downtown Fort Lauderdale’s Museum of Discovery and Science, is now chairwoman of something called the Giant Screen Cinema Association – whose mission is “advance the business of producing and presenting educational giant screen and immersive cinema experiences globally.” Since MODS has a popular IMAX theater, Cavendish seems quite qualified. Even more impressive: She’s the first woman to chair GSCA.

Bejeweled vacuum cleaner: Cleans up as it cleans you out Does anything sound more unromantic – and more dangerous to your health – than telling your significant other: “Honey, I bought you a vacuum cleaner as a Valentine’s Day gift”? Except if it’s this vaccuum cleaner. The Special Edition Swarovski HYLA GST was recently declared the World’s Most Expensive Vacuum Cleaner by the Guinness World Records. It features 32,000 black, gray, and white Swarovski crystals that took 100 hours of labor to hand-place. Retail price: $21,900. While three have been sold so far – one in Russia and two in Dubai – only one remains. And it’s in Hartmut Gassmann’s offices in Deerfield Beach. That’s where the Parkland resident operates the national headquarters for HYLA U.S. Gassmann. “It’s not so much for selling,” Gassman concedes. “People don’t spend $21,900 for a cleaning system.” But they do spend 10 percent of that. Gassman is the national distributor for a high-end machine that traps dirt and allergens with water instead of filters. It even comes with a TV-like remote control. “We did this for marketing,” Gassman says. “It’s a conversation piece.” It’s also a conversation piece for Gassman’s 11-year-old daughter Yasmine – that’s her posing with the world record-holder. www.hyla-us.com

Students aren’t the only ones who receive grades. So do their schools. Last month, the Florida Department of Education released its 2011-2012 high school grade results – and 82 of BROWARD’S HIGH SCHOOLS earned an ‘A’ or ‘B’ – compared to 76.3 the year before. All the county’s charter high schools earned a C or higher. Best of all, no Broward high schools received a ‘D’ or ‘F’. Grades were based on,among other things, graduation rates, participation and success in accelerated courses, and postsecondary prep. Facebook is often criticized for ruining your productivity. But one company has made it profitbale for local charities. SETNOR BYER INSURANCE & RISK, based in Plantation, decided to donate $5,000 to the charity that garnered the most votes on their Facebook page. Response was so overwhelming, the firm doubled down – donating $10,000. Half went to Voices for Children (more than 150 votes), while Hispanic Unity got $2,000 (more than 120 votes) and $3,000 was split among other charities. MARK ADLER is the new executive director at Broward Meals on Wheels, succeeding Peggy Miller, who held the post since 2006. The private notfor-profit organization has, since 1985, provided millions of meals and many thousands of hours of nutrition education and in-home assessments in Broward County.

For the ninth year, Taylor’s foundation hosted JT’S PING-PONG SMASH. In December, his celebrity doubles table-tennis tournament was held at Hard Rock Live in Hollywood and attracted a slew of current Dolphins players (Brian Hartline, Karlos Dansby, Brandon Fields, and Anthony Fasano, among others) as well as other sports stars.

When to Work Out Getting in shape is easier when you do it on a schedule BY DAVID SHERMAN

Being a personal fitness trainer for 15 years has taught me one thing about people: They really don’t want to work out. So whenever someone wants to exercise, regardless of he time of day, I encourage it. But in my experience, there are better times of the day to lace up those crosstrainers than others.

we feel better physically and mentally – and next we are hungry from the workout.

I firmly believe that that body is trainable and will adapt if you give six weeks in a new regime. The same also applies for the way that we eat.

NIGHTS Nighttime is crucial to keeping the eating habits under control. A lot of us are night owls and go to bed too late after sitting around the house picking on the wrong food for a variety of reasons. Well, because we got up an hour earlier and exercised, we’re now going to crash earlier and avoid that extra hour of possible nighttime emotional eating.

If you intend to completely change the way you look and feel, it comes at the price of a commitment! That may mean getting up an hour earlier each morning or sacrificing something else that you would have rather done for working out. It means ordering the fruit for dessert over the chocolate decadence. Remember nothing tastes as good as being in shape feels! MORNING Let’s assume the morning workout is a possibility for you. I’ve had many clients who trained before sunrise… just saying. The first feeling we want to start our day? Gpod energy and circulation. How many times have you woken up feeling like you were in a car accident? That lack of circulation causes inflammation. The cure is increasing blood flow through exercise. So now we have worked out,

FEBRUARY 2013 | LIFESTYLEMAGAZINEGROUP.COM

What does hunger mean? It means our metabolism is jump-started and the fat-burning is underway. We have a clear head and we feel great about ourselves. Time to eat. We’re more likely to make a good choice because we feel good and don’t want to ruin that feeling. Then one good choice turns into another – and then we end up having a good day.

Working out at night isn’t bad but just keep in mind that we usually get really hungry after workouts and now you are getting into those later hours where we want to cut down on our calories. Also, a good workout will sometimes give you a blast of energy that could keep you up later than you want. I have been known to clean my whole house after a good workout. Tomorrow we start it all over again. Remember it takes 4- 6 weeks to change and develop a new and positive habit, give yourself that time. Please feel free to contact me at GPSLifeStyle@hotmail.com at 954-649-3283.

Alas A Grand Journey through Amazing Alaska

FEBRUARY 2013 | LIFESTYLEMAGAZINEGROUP.COM


ka

Do you know that over 60% of the visitors to Alaska each year, do so on a cruise ship? It’s certainly the easiest way to see this vast wonderland, however, it truly only is the tip of the iceberg. At SitInMySeats VIP Tickets, Travel & Concierge Services, the travel specialists are known for tailoring and customizing unique and unforgettable experiences to destinations worldwide. Alaska is no exception. So many people have already experienced cruising and are looking for ways to push their expectations when they finally plan their vacation. “We’re seeing a growing trend in our discerning clients wanting more from their destinations, more from their experiences and certainly, more from our team as we create and personalize each vacation” says Laura Hildenbrandt, Director of Travel. Recently, the team at SitInMySeats created a journey for a family looking to experience the true Alaska. The clients wanted a “grand journey” and wanted to take in as much of the landscape and

culture as they could in a period of 12 days. The result was an awe-inspiring trek that allowed the clients to take in the natural beauty, search for Alaska’s famed wildlife and learn the stories behind the sights as they traveled through some of the state’s most stunning wilderness. They visited Chugach National Forest, Kenai Fjords National Park, Kenai National Wildlife Refuge and Denali National Park. The wildlife experience was beyond their expectations. During this adventure, they saw marine wildlife such as sea otters, puffins, harbor seals, Steller sea lions and whales in Kenai Fjords National Park as they coasted past glaciers on their canoes. They saw countless animals throughout the journey, including caribou, moose, Dall sheep and grizzly bears. SitInMySeats also customized an amazing “flightseeing” trip of Mt. McKinley that the clients said there are “no words to describe”! Throughout this journey, SitInMySeats made sure that their transportation and accommodations were nothing short of luxurious, having their guests stay at amazing places such as Kenai Fjords Glacier Lodge, Caribou Lodge and Tutka Bay Lodge. A trip to Alaska can be done so many different ways but the end result will stay the same.....a vacation and experience that will live on in your dreams and memories forever. For more information on Alaska or any other travel destination, please contact SitInMySeats VIP Tickets, Travel & Concierge Services at 954-456-0419/ 866-798-7328 or email Lisa Crawford at lisa@sitinmyseats.com.

Zero to 60 – in Three Years By Brandon Ballenger

R

afael Jorge met his wife Susan when they were both teenagers. But he wasn’t allowed to date her until he got another job. It wasn’t his parents or hers who made that rule. It was Marriott. Rafael and Susan were working at a Marriott hotel in Miami. He was 19 and she was 17. Rafael was a supervisor, and Susan recalls, “I was working at one of the restaurants, and I came up to ask him for change to $100.” Rafael didn’t have change, so he went to the front desk to ask. No one there did, either. What kind of upscale hotel doesn’t have change for $100 bill? “I expressed that opinion, and he didn’t like it very much,” Susan says. But Rafael did like her. “As soon as I met her, I absolutely liked her very much,” he remembers. And they became good friends working 12-hour shifts together. “We had a lot of background in common culturally, and the way we were raised in single-parent homes,” Susan says. But they weren’t allowed to date. “We worked there for three years, and strict hotel policy was: They didn’t allow management to fraternize with staff,” Rafael says. Did he ever consider breaking policy? “I mean, you always fantasize,” Refael admits. “But no, I had always been a company guy and had managers under me who had broken one of the commandments, and I wasn’t going to be a hypocrite.” He dated other girls in the meantime, and they would sometimes drop by work. Susan says she didn’t take it personally – she knew

there was a policy, and they remained good friends. Rafael says, “I always hoped it would work out between us, but I never tipped my hand and kept my feelings reserved.” That is, until he took a leave of absence from Marriott to start his own business, Sun Auto Tops, in 1979. (It’s now called Specialty Automotive Treatments.) “I opened it up with my life savings of $20,000 and made first payroll on my Visa,” Rafael says. And he asked Susan out on the first day he was his own boss. But he needed help from his father. “I needed an excuse to ask her out,” Rafael says. “My father was flying in from Venezuela, so I said, ‘I need a date that speaks Spanish and would you mind coming along.’” Rafael spoke the language too, but he claimed she was more fluent. “We had dinner with his father, and it was pleasant,” Susan says. “Then we dropped him off and went off to a nightclub in Miami Beach – and had our first kiss on the pool deck.” Rafael says he knew by the second date, “We were going to spend life together.” After a couple months, Rafael called Marriot and said, “I don’t think I’ll be coming back for a while.” Or ever, as it turned out. Now 32 years later, Specialty Automotive Treatments is a family business with 75 employees. “My daughter Cristina runs the wholesale division and my son Rafael Jr. runs the retail division,” Rafael says. “I’m blessed to work with my kids.” And he has Marriott to thank for them.

Everything Under the Sunroof When Rafael Jorge opened his business in 1979, he was in his mid-20s. It was called Sun Auto Tops because that’s all he offered: aftermarket sunroofs. But slowly over the years, Rafael offered more aftermarket items for cars and trucks, until in 2001, he changed the name of the company to Specialty Automotive Treatments. Now he sells just about any modification you can think of for cars and boats – from leather interiors to wheels, tires, electronics, marine audio/video equipment, body kits and custom exteriors. Up until 2008 – when the business opened a $5 million, 15,000-squarefoot showroom on Sunrise Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale – the company sold products only to dealers. Jorge, who also lives in Fort Lauderdale, says working with those dealers was the key to his success. “Once you have a dealership and you show proper service and etiquette and that you can make them money adding accessories, you have a partner for life. We’ve got dealerships we’ve been serving for 32 years.”

FEBRUARY 2013 | LIFESTYLEMAGAZINEGROUP.COM


That’s the Ticket By Brandon Ballenger acque and Neil Scherfer met on a double date – but not with each other. And it wasn’t love at first sight. Neil remembers, “A good friend of mine was going out with her, and he needed someone to help him out” – because Jacque wanted to set up one of her friends. So they all saw a movie together. Jacque says “the relationship didn’t go anywhere after a few dates,” but the four stayed friends over the next few years. Neil and Jacque became gradually closer even as they were attending college 1,400 miles apart. Neil was working on a degree in media management at Arizona State, while Jacque was at Tennessee State for nursing. “We stayed in touch through college and hung out during spring break, summer break, stuff like that,” Neil says. About a year before Jacque graduated, they started dating. Neil says the long-distance relationship was “tough, but we saw each other enough to deal with it.” They racked up a huge phone bill for Jacque’s parents. Fast forward another six months. Neil had graduated, returned to South Florida for work, and was moving out of his apartment. Jacque was on spring break and helped him pack. “He had me going through all these boxes trying to find things,” Jacque says. “I thought I was going to open a box and find the ring.” Nope. “I don’t know why I thought that – way too many movies I guess,” she says. Although she was aggravated, she brushed it off when Neil asked her was wrong. A few days later, just before she had to go back to school, Neil said he had to meet some clients and wanted her to come. “We had tickets to the Heat game and were going out to dinner, and we were supposed meet clients of his,” Jacque says. He showed up a little late, acting obnoxious and short-tempered. He didn’t say two words to her parents. They took off in a rush, and as fate would have it, got pulled over by police just a couple minutes later. “Of course, I was aggravated and thinking he deserved this ticket,” she says.

J

As the cop was approaching the car, Neil asked, “Should I mention that my father’s with the BSO?” She shook her head. Neil rolled down the window. License and registration, the cop said. Let me get it, Neil said. “And by the way, do you know my father Rusty?” Jacque pinched his leg. The cop didn’t care who Neil’s father was and needed to see the registration. Jacque thought the cop was being “kind of a jerk.” Neil handed it over. He went back to his car and came back after a couple minutes. He said there was something wrong with Neil’s license and the car didn’t belong to him. “It’s a company car,” Neil said. You can’t drive it, the cop said. “And then he said, ‘Well, I’m going to be nice. Do you live around here? Are you married?,” according to Neil. If he was married, his wife could drive the car home. “I’m practically married,” Neil said. That’s how he remembers the moment. Jacque’s version is a little different. “He goes, ‘Well [Neil] can’t drive this car. Are you a family member or a wife? And I said I could be his wife with all the shit I put up with,” Jacque says. They agree on what happened next: Neil pulled out a little box and asked, “Will you be my wife?” “She’s like, ‘What the hell?’ – and it didn’t register,” Neil remembers. “I got out and was high-fiving my buddy and she realized, ‘He’s serious.’” “I said, ‘Well, you’re an asshole,’” Jacque remembers. And then she said yes. The cop – he really was one, and he did work with Rusty Scherer – hugged Neil and took off. He convinced her they were already running too late to meet the clients. “Let’s forget the game and just go to Nick’s on South Beach and have a great dinner,” Neil said. “We walk into the restaurant, and I end up seeing all my family and his family and friends,” Jacque says, prompting a genuinely confused question. “What are you all doing eating here?” “She still didn’t click,” Neil says. He had spent three months planning the whole thing with his dad and friends, down to ignoring Jacque’s parents to get her riled up. All except for being late and stressed – that was real. The car got a flat on the way to get her, and he was panicked that timing wit his cop pal had been ruined.

Nursing at Home Best Care was established in 1980 to provide home healthcare and help clients maintain their quality of life. It still does that today, although under different leadership. “It’s a family-owned company.,” Jacque Scherfer says. “My mother and her business partner [Alan Spector] started it 33 years ago,” Now it’s run by the founders’ kids: Scherfer and Marc Spector. The business helps match clients with caregivers at home, in hospitals, or in nursing homes. Services range from baby nurses to post-surgical care to live-in nurse aides and companions who can help with tasks like dressing and bathing. Scherfer’s husband, Neil, is national account manager at CBS Outdoor, where he sells advertising on billboards and transit from the Palm Beaches to the Florida Keys.

Ten days after slamming into a tree in Tennessee, 47-year-old Jim Clark had lost 25 pounds and showed scars running across his ribs.

“I just heard cracks. It wasn’t the tree.” A Broward businessman’s super-healthy lifestyle of triathlons and free diving almost killed him. Then it saved him. BY RYAN CORTES

L

ast July, Jim Clark was on vacation in Tennessee. He’d taken his wife and two children to visit his parents about an hour south of Nashville. Just after sunup on the last day of that vacation , he felt the need to unwind. So he went on a 50-mile bike ride through the mountains. He never finished it. Clark was two weeks away from competing in an Ironman triathlon – a 2.4-mile swim, a 112-mile bike ride, and a 26-mile run that has killed participants in the past. The 46-yearold Fort Lauderdale entrepreneur had finished one before, so a 50-mile bike ride was a leisurely stroll. But only a few miles before he was back at his parents’ home, he saw a large yellow Labrador in his path. Vlark had been chased by dogs before while riding. It can be scary. But this 80-pound beast just followed him with a wagging tail. “All right, buddy, you have to go home,” Vlark said. The dog refused. That’s when he saw the red pit bull. “I remember his eyes,” Clark says. “I remember him looking at me.” The pitbull took off toward them. “With a vengeance,” Clark remembers. The yellow lab scurried toward Clark’s bike, turning the handles 90 degrees. He went flying down the embankment at 25 mph, flipping twice before slamming into a tree 10 yards away. “I just heard cracks,” Clark says. “It wasn’t the tree.” PAIN: THAT FAMILIAR FEELING Pain was nothing new for Jim Clark. As a 2-year-old, he was diagnosed with asthma. At 5, he was diagnosed with Legg-Calve-Perthes, a degenerative cartilage disease – he spent two years in a wheelchair. “I don’t remember ever feeling pity,” Clark recalls. “I was just dealing with it. That certainly does something to your character, I think. Building some tolerance for bad times, it helps you want to strive and do things.” And strive he did. As an adult, he tore up his ankle while water skiing and his ACL while snow boarding. On his 40th birthday, he injured his back jumping on a trampoline

people In June of 2004, Clark went surfing in Bali, Indonesia. This was the tail end of a 15 foot wave he surged through.

In June of 2007, Clark had a biking accident with friends, crashing into A1A’s pavement. His friends followed his ambulance ride and went to tell his wife, Linda. She wasn’t surprised.

with his kids. But the pain he felt after this bike crash was something new. After hitting into the tree, a delusional Clark began patting the ground, looking, hoping, to wake up from a dream. “It wasn’t a dream,” he said. “Figured that out in about 20 seconds.” He didn’t yet know that his shoulder had tears in two ligaments, his hip was cracked, and so were eight “My entire left side was just broken. ribs. “My entire left side was I could feel my ribs banging up just broken,” he says. “I against each other. It was like Jello.” could feel my ribs banging up against each other. It was like Jello.” Crawling along, he made his way up the embankment. Short of breath, Clark collapsed in a heap, his head in the road, his legs resting on the lane markers. Twenty minutes passed before a car came and found his bloodied body. Clark couldn’t talk, other than to mutter the word, “Ribs.” While paramedics rushed to the scene, Clark recalled that the pit bull has disappeared, but the yellow lab was still there. THE WORST ISN’T OVER At the hospital, X-rays showed eight broken ribs and a punctured lung. Clark said his shoulder hurt. “We’re not worried about soft tissue,” a doctor replied. “We’re worried about you living.” He was loaded into another ambulance and rushed to an emergency care unit at Vanderbilt University. His 10-year-old son Kelly arrived and had one question: “Is this my dad? It’s kind of really scary to see. It freaked me out.” After a week, doctors were nearly ready to release him. His brother Duane was flying up to drive him and his family home. On that very day, Clark recalls: Doctor comes in and goes, ‘There’s something we just can’t figure out. You have this mass in your lung sac. This gray thing. We don’t know what it is.’” But it’s near the hear, and he might not survive the surgery. Before he’s wheeled into operating room, Clark writes a letter to his children and stuffs it inside a spiral notebook.

Everything went dark again. “Soon as I woke up,” Clark says, “I knew it was the worst-case scenario.” Doctors found a mass staph infection growing on his chest – MRSA, which becomes more resistant to treatment the longer it’s there. They had to screw titanium plates to three of his ribs so they could get the leverage to scrape off the mass. “Everyone that came in the room,” his brother Duane recalls, “they said he would have a much, much better recovery than anyone else because he kept himself in such good health.” Still, it was a close call. Clark’s wife Linda recalls, “I couldn’t get upset or cry in front of him, because he was being really strong and if I did that, then he would know, because there were moments we didn’t think things were going to go very well, so I had to kind of hide everything.” But doctors had reached the infection in time. On Aug. 10, two-and-a-half weeks


after ramming into that tree, Clark was set to go home. When Clark hobbled out of his wife’s car that day, Kelly remembers, “He looked like he had been in the ocean for a month or so. Just drying out there. It was just scary.” Or as his brother Duane described it, “He looked like a P.O.W. because he had lost so much weight.” When Clark got home, he wept. “I try to look for the why, for the reason. I didn’t see any. There was no white light experience. Heaven’s door didn’t open up and invite me in or shut me out. Nothing like that. I felt like I just needed to calm myself down and get through it.” Nearly six months after his accident, Clark was back to his day job — “looking for deals” as he calls it. He’s a local entrepreneur who has flipped businesses in healthcare for the last 15 years. He was also back to riding his bike. He wasn’t in perfect health yet, but his wife Linda understood. “It’s Jimmy, that’s what makes him happy,” she says. “He doesn’t do anything small. And that’s great. But I think he needs to do it in a way that’s safe – especially

After a day of fishing in 2010, Clark settled in with his two sons, Dylan (left) and Kelly (right).

when you have a family and you have to be around.” One of his best friends, Mike Bush, the owner of Pivotal Fitness in Fort Lauderdale says that after doctors told Clark he needed to stay on the couch and gia nweight, Clark snuck into the garage at odd hours to pedal on his stationary bike anyway. “That’s totally Jimmy’s mentality,” Bush says. “He’s not supposed to run? He’ll run. When he wears out the cartilage, he’ll stop running.” LIFESTYLEMAGAZINEGROUP.COM | FEBRUARY 2013

stop suffering from migraines Kody was a chronic headache and migraine sufferer who was on a daily regimen of pain medicine. After his very first treatment, Kody headaches disminished significantly.

no pain no drugs no needles

Ever since I can remember I had headaches. When I was a teenager I noticed my jaw was locking and clicking. My parents took me to all kinds of Doctors and I had many scans,and MRI's. No one could find out why I had this terrible condition. Each Doctor would put me on another medication to control my pain. I found Dr. Kodish two months ago and I am very thankful. Since I began tru-denta therapy I am pain free for the first time since I can remember. I feel like I can go on trips and be normal again.

5TH ANNUAL FANCY JEANS PARTY BENEFITING THE JESSICA JUNE CHILDREN’S CANCER FOUNDATION The Jessica June Children’s Cancer Foundation (JJCCF) will host its 5th Annual Fancy Jeans Party sponsored by The Wasie Foundation and presented by Premier Beverage on Saturday, February 23, 2013 from 6 to 10 p.m. at Passion Nightclub at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. Proceeds from the event will benefit children fighting cancer in the tri-county area. Chaired by Jen Klaassens, Vice President of Programs for The Wasie Foundation, and produced by Ana Vento of Events by Vento Designs, the Fancy Jeans Party will feature live interactive entertainment, surprise appearances, a “Best Dressed Fancy Jeans” contest, a raffle including a 2013 Fiat car plus two more extraordinary prizes, and a fabulous silent auction. Dance the night away while enjoying tasty delights and an open bar, courtesy of Premier Beverage. Melissa Gomez, an adorable 4 year old fighting Leukemia, has been chosen to be the 2013 Fancy Jeans Child Honoree. Due to Melissa’s fragile medical circumstances and frequent hospitalizations, her mother had no choice but to give up working in order to become her fulltime caregiver. Her father works as a self-employed taxi driver which the past year has earned little income in an unstable market. During this dreadful time, JJCCF has provided emergency financial assistance to cover the family’s basic human needs so they can focus on

The Jessica June Children’s Cancer Foundation also invites local businesses and individuals to support the Fancy Jeans Party through sponsorships, in-kind donations or program journal advertising. 100% of the proceeds from Fancy Jeans will fund JJCCF’s Emergency Financial Assistance Program benefiting families in crisis fighting childhood cancer. The signature event has raised over $385,000 to help these families in crisis meet their everyday basic human necessities such as food, shelter and medical treatments. Fancy Jeans sponsors include The Wasie Foundation, Premier Beverage, Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Passion Nightclub, Chris Evert Children’s Hospital, Florida Panthers Foundation, AutoNation & Maroone, SIDES, Miami Children’s Hospital, Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital, Bacardi, Holland America Line, American Airlines, MSC Cruises, Dacha Storani, Broward Bank of Commerce, Alan G.

18 Literary Feast Turns 25 MARCH

» Hyatt Regency Pier Sixty-Six » 6pm » LiteraryFeastOnline.org

Celebrates Books & Their Sensational Authors For those who love to read, the 25th Edition of the Broward Public Library Foundation’s Literary Feast is “a classy conference that really knows how to connect readers and authors, while providing an incredible fundraiser to support local libraries,” according to Hallie Ephron, a former Literary Feast author. Ta k i n g place between Friday, March 15, and Monday, March 18, 19 fascinating authors, among them best-selling writers Dave Barry, Bob Spitz and Tess Gerritsen, will speak with South Florida booklovers, donors and students at five events, including the signature fund-raiser, A Night of Literary Feasts. “A Night of Literary Feasts takes place on Saturday at the Hyatt Regency Pier Sixty-Six on Saturday. It starts at 6 p.m. with a fabulous cocktail party, silent auction and book-signings with all the authors, followed by intimate dinners with one or two authors in private homes and upscale restaurants,” said Broward Public Library Foundation Executive Director Dorothy Klein More. This year’s Literary Feast has a twist – an in-depth look at the works and life of legendary

FEBRUARY 2013 | LIFESTYLEMAGAZINEGROUP.COM

author Edith Wharton, who was born 150 years ago. Even though she died 75 years ago, and she mostly wrote about turn-of-thecentury American society, she is considered one of the most influential writers today. Four writers, all Wharton experts, will be part of Literary Feast: Jennie Fields, The Age of Desire; Irene Goldman-Price, My Dear Governess: The Letters of Edith Wharton to Anna Bahlmann; Francesca Segal, The Innocents and Richard Guy Wilson, Edith Wharton at Home: Life at the Mount. Other Literary Feast events include: LitLUNCH!, March 15th, the kickoff luncheon at the Hyatt Regency Pier Sxity-Six Pier Top restaurant; LitLIVE!, March 17; a free day of author talks, book sales and signings at Nova Southeastern University’s Alvin Sherman Library; and “Feast’s Night Out With Dave Barry,” 7 p.m. March 17 at the Hyatt Regency Pier 66. March 18th is Novel Day for Students, where the authors talk about their books and the craft of writing with thousands of Broward County high school students, culminating with the announcement of the winners of the annual Short Story Contest. “Literary Feast is so important to the Broward Public Library Foundation’s mission to support Broward County libraries’ programs and services,” said Library Foundation Board of Directors Vice Chair Joseph Goldstein, who is serving as Literary Feast 2013 Co-Chair with his wife Mary. Some of the authors and their books include: Ace Atkins, The Lost Ones; Kim Barnes, In the Kingdom of Men, and local author, Around Town Newspaper publisher Patrick G. Mascola, Hell on East Rock. Title Sponsor is The Friends of the Mount, Edith Wharton’s Home, and Presenting Sponsors are Maroone, an AutoNation, Inc. company and Nova Southeastern University. Visit www.LiteraryFeastOnline.org

Optimize It, They Will Come BY BRANDON BALLENGER

Exults CEO Zach Hoffman never heads to the office without his 3-year-old Boston Terrier, Kop. And while his recently expanded Fort Lauderdale headquarters has a “living room feel” and a poker table, his job isn’t all fun and games. “When it comes to a day in my work, I’m fully involved and make sure my clients feel serviced,” he says. That might mean sitting in a video conference call with a company offering an online education system to help them develop a marketing strategy, or offering tech support on ExultARC, proprietary software that he calls “the backbone of our Internet marketing platform.” The software gives clients around-the-clock access to reports and trends in their online marketing. “It lets them know how [search] keywords ranking, and where visitors are coming from, and gives them information they can use for other forms of marketing,” Hoffman says.

60

FEBRUARY 2013 | LIFESTYLEMAGAZINEGROUP.COM

“We’ve very transparent on the reporting side and keep clients engaged,” he adds, which is a big part of the “value proposition” the company offers. It also does website design, social media marketing, and brand management. Hoffman started the business in 2005 as SEO.cc. (The name changed early in 2012.) Fresh out of the University of Central Florida with a degree in finance and economics, Hoffman was helping his father’s dental practice with online marketing, managing affiliate marketing websites (basically, paid online referrals) and figuring out AdWords, the service that keeps Google flush with cash. He saw the value of that kind of marketing – and capitalized on it – but realizes not everyone does. Search engine optimization, among those who’ve even heard of it, sometimes gets a bad rap. “We definitely see there’s some confusion, and some people don’t get the promise someone might have issued them in the past,” Hoffman says, alluding to scammers. That’s why his company emphasizes transparency and measurable results, along with how important it is to update your website. “What’s funny is for most of our consumers, their cellphone is newer than their website. Some people built a website five years ago and think that’s going to serve them well today,” he says. But you have to keep up, he explains: “Some people get left behind if it’s built Exults on static HTML, which is an older 1120 Federal Highway coding standard, and haven’t moved on to a content management system.” Fort Lauderdale Older sites may not display well on 954-763-1130 newer computers and mobile devices. “It’s not as friendly to a user as you exults.com could be,” says Hoffman.

Driving Hard Bargains For those looking for online marketing help, here’s Zach Hoffman’s advice... 1. It’s not all virtual. “Being able to meet and see the physical location is very effective to make sure they’re legitimate. In our industry if a company’s not answering the phone or you have to dial a few numbers that’s sometimes a warning sign there’s nobody really there.” 2. Demand tangible results and updates. “Ask about their reporting platform, what they plan to report and the frequency. You should get measurement on a milestone basis and know they can communicate what’s getting done. ” 3. Look for a focus on mobile. “A few years ago the rate of people accessing the site [by phone or tablet] was 3 to 5 percent and it’s now 15 to 30 percent. It’s a high value situation where you want to have a mobile website with touch access to a phone number, maps, bill pay, or directions.”

WEIGHT-LOSS RESISTANCE DR. KENNETH WOLINER Board Certified Family Physician 9325 Glades Road, Suite 104 Boca Raton, FL 33434 561-314-0950 holisticfamilymed.com

Jessica had a purpose for her consultation with me. “New year, same old resolution – get the weight off.” Tired of being overweight, she wanted to fix her metabolism once and for all and to be thin. “So what have you tried in the past,” I inquired. “Dr. Woliner, what haven’t I tried you mean.” Jessica continued, “I fall for whatever quick weight loss scheme that comes around [1]. You know, ’30 lbs, 30 days, $30’.” “How’d that work for you?” “Well, it wasn’t $30. Somehow they got me to sign a contract for over $2,000. And you know, I would have gladly paid that if I only got results.” “I can assure you that I will be honest and upfront with you. A patient has to have faith in her doctor.”

“That was probably my problem. I never really saw a doctor. Even at the so-called medical clinics, the doctor was only there for 3 hours a week and the girl that works up at the front desk was the one doing the consultations, dispensing me my HCG, and selling me other pills.” “The Sun-Sentinel ran an expose on HCG diet clinics showing how they offered more hype than help [2]. On these crash diets, you might lose some weight, but you’re also likely lose your hair, develop life-threatening heart arrhythmias, and gain the weight back [3].” “I’m done with fad diets and clinics that focus only on weightloss. I need a doctor to look at all of me, and find out why I have a weight problem to begin with.” “I’m not just a doctor who could prescribe appetite suppressants; I’m a board-certified family medicine physician with a degree in Nutrition from Cornell. I prefer to look at the causes of weight gain, and treat them instead.” I proceeded with my 80-minute new patient exam, “You’re looking rundown. Thinning hair, fatigue and muscle spasms. You know, constant dieting can cause CENTRAL HYPOTHYROIDISM, low iron, and

electrolyte imbalances. We should check for all those. “Since you’re fasting today, we can do a KORR INDIRECT CALORIMETRY test to measure your metabolism [4].” Jessica’s metabolism measured at “minus 18% less than normal” and blood tests confirmed that her thyroid had shut down (normal TSH, but other thyroid tests abnormal) [5]. “Your low magnesium can cause those muscle spasms, and even though you’re not anemic, your iron isn’t adequate to grow hair or keep your energy levels up [6].” “Is there a way I can jumpstart things?” “I won’t make the false promise of a pound a day, but you’ll see results pretty quickly. My diet suggestions will make it easier to get adequate protein in each day, causing your metabolism to recover, but until that happens; we’ll need to prescribe T3-based thyroid medication. We could also do iron injections to give your hair raw materials to grow again [7].” 3 months and 20 pounds lighter, Jessica was very upbeat. “The way I’m going, this is one New Year’s Resolution that will be easy to keep.”

TURN BACK THE CLOCK IN MINUTES! “OFTEN A 1 TREATMENT WOW” ….THE DEEP, FRACTIONAL CO2 MICRO-ABLATIVE LASER The newest advances in Laser Technology have revolutionized “Gold Standard” CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing!! With another new technology Upgrade, we now offer “Multi-Pulse” a Deep CO2 Microablative laser that can safely and precisely remove outer layers of damaged skin and penetrate via millions of microthermal zones to reveal the underlying skin and create brand new skin which is softer, smoother and often dramatically, younger looking. It also stimulates the regeneration of healthy skin underneath (called “Laser Skin Renewal”), for a dramatically youthful and beautiful appearance! This superlative skin resurfacing – rejuvenation procedure will reverse years of sun damage, wrinkles, scars and many other skin imperfections in just minutes. When compared to other forms of laser treatment, the new “Deep” CO2 micro ablative is the new “Gold Standard” for rapid and optimal enhancement in as littleas 1 treatment! Our patients, ranging in age from 13 to 81 say that “The micro ablation removes sun damaged skin and makes it fresher looking; the second part called “bulk heating” improves collagen and elastic fibers deep down that improve deep to moderate wrinkles”. It’s also great for removing all types of scars, safe anywhere on the face, body or hands and we are even using it on stretch marks. By fractioning the laser beam into microscopic beams, a specific portion of the skin is left unharmed, which is more conducive to healing. This fractional method enables cells

to begin healing within 24 hours and the comfortable downtime can be adjusted to fit your busy schedule for 3 to 7 days – versus two months with the original CO2 laser. “The new “Non-Surgical Laser Facelift or Eye Lift” can take years off a person’s appearance and give them better looking skin than someone many years younger,” noted Dr. Aguilera. Our other popular cosmetic procedures include Botox, Dysport and Dermal fillers to replenish the volume of fat loss and bone loss on the face. Fillers take care of the volume and folds while the laser takes care of the skin’s texture, tone and elasticity. Dr. Shino Bay Aguilera is in fact, #1 in Sculptra Aesthetic Treatments in the entire USA!! No one treats more patients with Sculptra Aesthetic and is a Platinum level Top Injector and Physician Trainer for all the major injectables! Dr. Aguilera has trained thousands of physicians and is extremely knowledgeable about the concepts and applications of skin laser and cosmetic injectable technologies.

FREEZING FAT FASTER: 60-MINUTE BODY CONTOURING Skin Center 6550 North Federal Hwy., Suite 330 Fort Lauderdale, FL 33308 (954) 903-0332 SkinCenter.com

For over 35 years, Roger H. Stewart, MD has been a pioneer in cosmetic dermatology and skin cancer treatment, employing state-of-the-art technology in his East Fort Lauderdale practice. He was the first in Broward to offer CoolSculpting®, performing over 1000 procedures to date. CoolSculpting is the ultimate nonsurgical body contouring treatment. Safe and FDAcleared, CoolSculpting naturally removes stubborn body fat bulges without surgery or downtime. Developed by Harvard scientists and featured in dozens of national articles and television segments, CoolSculpting’s unique patented procedure uses a targeted cooling process that kills the fat cells underneath the skin, literally freezing them to the point of elimination. Precise temperature control and CoolSculpting technology ensure only fat cells are frozen while the skin and surrounding tissues are protected. There are no knives, no suction hoses, no needles and no scars. Each treatment lasts one hour – the same time you might spend at the gym. After your CoolSclupting treatment, you can typically get right back to your busy day. The

12 FATAL MISTAKES YOU CAN MAKE WHEN SELLING YOUR BUSINESS!! Selling a business is not easy. Each deal has its challenges and nuances. That is why I love what I do, and know how valuable our service is at Transworld. Do you think you place an advertisement somewhere and the perfect buyer will call? I wish it was that simple. While many entrepreneurs build a successful business through vision, excellent management skills and sheer hard work, most do not have a thorough understanding of the complexities and factors that are present in the deal structuring and business selling process. Plainly said, “It’s a jungle out there, and you need a professional tour guide”! Here are some of the most common pitfalls when trying to sell your own business:

buyers takes your eye off the ball and leads to lower profits and market value. All buyers will seek the latest P&L statement just before closing. If sales and profits are down, the buyer will most likely try to give you a major “haircut” on the selling price.

1. FAILURE TO MAINTAIN CONFIDENTIALITY If you let the “cat out of the bag” too early it can be dangerous! If employees know that you are selling and changes are coming, they may quit or become less productive. Competitors may use this information as a selling tool against you. Vendors may not continue to extend you favorable terms. Make sure all potential buyers sign confidentiality agreements prior to meeting with you.

4. FAILURE TO SECURE QUALIFIED BUYERS Knowing how to qualify a buyer is critical. We can help you pre-qualify each buyer to avoid a negotiation that is doomed to fail. This saves you time and money. The best buyer is one that will close, not always the one with the most cash!

2. FAILURE TO CONTINUE TO RUN YOUR BUSINESS It is important to maintain your business at peak operating capacity. If you try to sell your business yourself, you may have hundreds of buyers call you, and most are “tirekickers”. The time wasted with these

3. FAILURE TO USE PROPER NEGOTIATING TECHNIQUES Poor negotiating techniques can cost you considerably in terms of selling price, terms and other opportunities. You shouldn’t have to be the “bad guy”, an intermediary can best negotiate for you. Many times a deal will fail to close because of poor negotiation and communication skills between the parties. Pro-Athletes (most anyway) understand the importance of a skilled negotiator. Bottom line is you need one too.

ANDREW CAGNETTA Certified Business Intermediary CEO, Transworld Business Advisors Offices Nationwide 954-772-1122 www.tworld.com

quarterbacking your deal to the end zone. 6. FAILURE TO PLACE THE PROPER VALUE ON YOUR BUSINESS A business has value to a buyer because of its anticipated earnings from its established resources, and has demonstrated a successful track record. Proper evaluation is crucial, enhancing the chances of selling. You need to have the right price, so as not to scare off potential buyers while at the same time, maximizing your eventual price. It is a proven fact that an intermediary can sell your business for more! If you can’t wait until next month for Part 2, email Andy for the whole article at ac@tworld.com

5. FAILURE TO MOVE THE DEAL ALONG A good deal is like fresh fish. The longer they sit around, the more they stink. While you focus on running your business, we can be there on a daily basis LIFESTYLEMAGAZINEGROUP.COM | FEBRUARY 2013

Cafe de Paris Celebrate Romance and the Love of Food

ining on French food in a café that offers an intimate ambiance may be the best way to begin– or reawaken– your love of food. What could be more romantic than a café adorned with sparkling lights, candles, and cabaret piano music playing in the background? The French are in love with history, culture, art, wine – and this is translated into every taste of food that is offered during your dining experience. An intimate evening is guaranteed when you stroll into Café de Paris. Owner Louis Flematti acquired the café in 1962, and much of his success over the last 50 years is due to a consistent presentation of both food and service. Chef Carlo, Pastry Chef Jean Claude, and Patricia the piano player are part of the longterm familiarity that keeps regulars returning. A beautiful Bougainvillea tree, given as a gift to Louis by a local patron who has since passed away, remains at the entrance of the restaurant. French food is for sharing. It is sensual. And sharing over candlelight

makes this dining experience very Parisian. Begin with Coquille St. Jacques, which is classically served in a scallop shell. This creamy dish of scallops, shrimps, and mushrooms is baked to crusty perfection. The Escargot Bourguignon, dripping in butter and garlic, will inspire bread-dipping. And if you love Duck Foiegrass and toasted Brioche, your taste buds will dance with delight over this rich, buttery, and delicate appetizer served with fresh cranberries. What’s better than appetizers that leave you lusting for more? Entrees that are perfect proportions wrapped with love and accompanied by wine offerings chosen by Louis himself. Consider the Beef Wellington. The filet mignon is wrapped in a firm, flaky crust accompanied by bordelaise sauce, vegetables, and a potato au gratin. Veal Oscar rivaled the beef. Topped with crabmeat, the plate was delicately complemented with asparagus, mushroom risotto, and a dab of hollandaise sauce. One should also consider the Chicken Crepe Princesse. This truly

Sauté shrimp in light butter, remove from the pan. Discard the butter, sauté carrots, mushrooms, garlic and shallots until soft, add salt and pepper to taste. SAUCE BEURRE BLANC 1 Cup White Wine 1/2 Cup White Vinegar 1 Cup Heavy Cream 1/2 LB Soft Butter Juice of 1/2 lemon Reduce white wine and vinegar by half, add heavy cream, and reduce by half again. Add soft butter with a whisk, add lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste. Combine vegetable and beurre blanc together. Place rice pilaf on center of plates, arrange 4 shrimp around, scoop beurre blanc and vegetable onto the shrimp and sprinkle chopped parsley on top.


traditional crepe is filled with chicken and mushrooms and is touched with a light velouté sauce. The sauce and term velouté is from the French adjectival form of velour, meaning velvet and is exquis! The Dover Sole also deserves mention and is light, flavorful, and touched with crumbs that dust the plate. A moment is taken between tastings to appreciate the romantic view both inside and outside leading to the street of Las Olas. The café offers several choices for seating to enhance your dining experience. The sidewalk area has cozy bistro style tables that are lit under an expansive awning, and inside, there are several intimate alcoves and four separate dining rooms. A full bar, a spiral staircase, and a grand piano are all part of the main dining rooms character that simply adds to this lovely French bistro. Dessert is absolutely for lovers at Café de Paris. I devoured the fruit tart filled with pastry cream and topped with fresh fruits with little option for sharing. The cheesecake with raspberry sauce was luscious, and the Key Lime pie was scrumptious! There are wonderful desserts offered for two, which include Baked Alaska, Cherries Jubilee, Banana Foster and

Crepes Suzette. Complete your meal with a cappuccino or one of the many exotic coffees offered. While you may not have had an aperitif such as a Pernod or Campari perhaps a digestif, an after-dinner drink, is your fancy. A taste of Grappa or Drambuie will warm you and prepare you for a lovely after dinner walk on the boulevard. Café de Paris has live entertainment seven nights a week. Early dinner

specials are served from 5 to 6 p.m., and the café is open for holidays as well. Visit www.cafedeparislasolas. com or for reservations or special events, call (954) 467-2900 or e-mail lecafedeparis@bellsouth.net. Café de Paris 715 Las Olas Boulevard, Ft Lauderdale Florida, 33301 Tel: 954 467 2900
