Some parents anticipate the possibility of preterm supportive care, but Meghan and Mark were caught off guard with the unexpected delivery. At Summerlin Hos pital, in a surgery suite filled with teams of doctors, nurses, support services and more, Fynn and Josephine Ladwig arrived weighing under 2 ½ pounds. They were so tiny that they fit into the doctor’s hand, theirs heads the size of a golf ball and perfect fingers, so small they didn’t wrap around a pencil. They gave a welcome cry as they were slipped into plastic bags, placed in incubators, and whisked away to the NICU for an eventual 109 days of intensive care to assist and monitor their growth to healthy, full-term babies.

Just as many businesses around the world that have been hit hard by the pandemic, Vegas truly showed a domino effect due to many businesses and industry’s that rely on each other to succeed, the beau ty industry being one of them. Times like these are a true test to see if business owners have prepared or can adapt to hard times. It was important from the be ginning to start Lash Queen International on the right track by creating an LLC and keeping her financials organized. It was her initial intention to be able to show that her business was profitable to buy a house and protect her financial future. “Putting in the work of creating a legit imate business would ultimately help me to keep it from going under,” Ariane adds. It is very common for many beauty professionals to not claim their income, such as sub-contracted workers that do not keep track of their income and spend ing. This put many of them in very tough situations throughout the pandemic and were forced, in many cases, to find oth er career paths or jobs. The change and uncertainty have made a lot of us feel uncomfortable, but for Ariane, once she adapted to this unfortunate situation, it was time to find ways to use this down time to step back and evaluate how she could improve her business and come back strong. Resilience is built in those who can get through and learn from tough times in life. She is now hoping to help others in the beauty industry to be better self-employed or business owners because a Queen is only as strong as her kingdom. MV

This hasn’t stopped her from taking the next step in creating a brand that offers a line of luxury lash products and training to help other lash artists provide better service. With the launch of lashqueeninterna tional.com, an online store, all her Lash Queen products are available along with registration for artist training and oth er helpful resources. “Once I was able to reach a level of success in my business,

Q.  IS THERE ANYTHING A PATIENT SHOULD DO BEFORE HAVING THE PRO CEDURE DONE?

THE GENERATIONNEXTOF

Q. WHAT IS AIRSCULPT?

CESS AS OPPOSED TO OTHER PROCE DURES RELATED TO FAT REDUCTION?

AirSculpt is a patented and precision-engi neered technology that removes fat cell by cell through a freckle size hole. It is a min imally invasive fat removal procedure that does not use needles, scalpels, or stitches and provides smooth, customized results. Typical downtime is about 1-3 days, and everything is done under local anesthesia, so you are awake the entire time! We need our patients to complete a complimentary consultation, in person or virtually, prior to their procedure.

Q. HOW LONG IS THE RECOVERY PRO-

Q. WHAT GUIDANCE CAN YOU OFFER FOR ANYONE CONSIDERING?

Q. YOU BOTH HAVE YOUR OWN PRIVATE PRACTICES, WHAT MADE YOU INTERESTED IN JOINING ELITE BODY SCULPTURE?

AirSculpt, performed exclusively at Elite Body Sculpture has a new state-of-theart, luxury location in Las Vegas! CEO and Founder of AirSculpt®, Aaron Rollins has entrusted Dr. Nalluri and Dr. Mosharrafa to continue setting the standard in permanent fat removal. I had the pleasure of conduct ing an interview with Elite Body Sculpture on the benefits of AirSculpt® technology, and why it is incomparable in the field of cosmetic surgery. The following is a Q & A regarding this revolutionary procedure.

TT CONTOURING 901 N. GREEN VALLEY PARKWAY, SUITE HENDERSON,250NV ELITEBODYSCULPTURE.COM725.300.066989074

Q. WHAT MAKES SOMEONE A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR AIRSCULPT®?

here's a technological revolution happening in the world of cosmet ic surgery, and Elite Body Sculp ture is at the helm.

Q. WHAT WOULD YOU SAY ARE THE MAIN BENEFITS OF AIRSCULPT®?

There is no need to alter lifestyle before the procedure. It is important, however, to commit to a healthy lifestyle to ensure the best, longest lasting results. I recommend a healthy lifestyle with a balanced diet and exercise regimen and all medical condi tions addressed.

Results! There are many tools to use to remove fat. Among them, there have been some significant advances over the years. Airsculpt ® combines mechanical energy and gentle management of the surround ing soft tissues to optimize fat removal in our patients.

The ideal candidate is anyone with stub born, unwanted fat pockets. We do not have a BMI requirement or weight limit for AirSculpt. If you can pinch it, we can take it! We recommend a healthy diet and exercise to enhance and maintain your AirSculpt results.

Optimal contour and sculpting results with minimal to no downtime, the ability to naturally enhance the breast and or but tock, no need for general anesthesia, and no need for potentially habit medication.

SUNSCREEN

HYDRATE

VITAMINS

It may be an assumption that sunscreen is only nec essary when the sun is blaring in your face during the summer, that is certainly not the case. Sun damage can happen during any month, and yes even when it’s a cloudy day. Use it daily!

MOISTURIZE

As much as vitamins are beneficial for your body on the inside, it can directly translate to your skin health. It’s recommended to gain these vitamins through your diet, so eating well can take care of your daily need, however supplements can also help you hit that goal.

You’ve heard it time and time again that drinking wa ter is incredible for your body inside and out, same as your daily dose of vitamins. But it really can change your skin game greatly during the dry seasons. Never doubt the power of water!

Seems like a no brainer but moisturizing daily can actually save you from developing dry skin through out this season. Ensuring that you apply moisturizer right after a shower, your skin will retain and lock in all the moisture needed to face the weather.

While these tips can help your skin health during the entire year, they are especially helpful after seasonal changes and during especially dry months. Keep your skin glowing and moisturized and you’ll be falling in love with your skin every day!

As we near the fall months (FINALLY), we must remember that skin care can be even more important during the colder months. Not just climate change, but cold air can be a culprit to dry skin and a variety of changes in our skin. Get your best skin through all seasons with these protective skin tips!

EXFOLIATE

FALLING IN LOVE WITH YOUR SKIN

Many may not know the benefits of regularly exfo liating, but it can truly make your skin look and feel better. Dead skin cells building up on the skin can ac tually make it harder to moisturize, so try an exfoli ating cleanser or mask for your face and body- you’ll see much smoother skin below the surface!

If you are struggling to lose weight with hypothyroidism, there’s a lot to consider.

Eating these foods will definitely help you drop weight, just stay mindful and see how your body responds.

As far as supplementing, you do have to be careful with fat burners because you can’t take too much caffeine, but you can lean towards turmeric and apple ci

If you have been doing HIIT workouts, in terval cardio, and training 6 days a week with little to no results then I would say it is time to relax a bit and try superset workouts, walking or steady cardio and adding in an extra rest day to switch it up. Sometimes, we believe going as hard as possible is the only way to go, but that’s not always the best way to burn fat. This is especially true for those who are al ready under a lot of stress so try switch ing things up and see how your results

Things that would normally help with weight loss actually backfire, so I want to break things down nice and easy, so you don’t have to struggle anymore.

24 million people struggle with thyroid disease and only 60% of them know it. A majority of those people have hypothyroidism. That is when your thyroid is performing slow, so it makes it harder to lose weight.

Don’t get disheartened reading this list. You can still have this stuff, just in mod eration. The first few foods I listed are usually a major shock to people, the other half are pretty normal to avoid in abun dance when trying to lose a few pounds.

And of course, I am going to recommend exercise. This is always a benefit, but if you are overdoing it, it can certainly hin der seeing visual results.

Opus fractionated plasma helps to improve the appearance or com pletely eliminate fine lines and wrinkles, especially around the eyes and mouth, improve acne scars, tighten the skin and dramatically improve stretch marks.

Q: What is the best recovery advice you would give to someone who just received a breast augmentation?

the upper third of the face, can help the frown and forehead lines, low brows, and the appearance of extra skin on the upper eyelids. I prefer to do endoscopic brow lifts because of the ease and noninvasive ness of the procedure which creates natu ral results that are consistently obtained. In certain cases, you can see some subtle elevation of the face and jawline, but in general it is not effective for sagging skin affecting the central face and neck.

Q: What is the best age to begin Bo tox or filler as a preventative measure against wrinkles and fine lines?

A: Protect the chest by sleeping on your back and minimizing excessive upper body movement for three weeks to allow healing of the pocket and to decrease risks for complications. Be prepared for unusu al appearance changes to the breasts as the implants sit high and feel firm. Do not judge results too early as it takes months for the implants to drop and settle into the natural breast pocket.

r. Hayley Brown, surgeon and owner, loves to offer her exper tise to patients and those who have questions before even step ping foot in her practice. We have asked Dr. Brown these thought provoking questions below:

A: Injectables should be considered be fore lines get too deep and are just start ing to appear. Age 30 is a good time to start for most people but because every one ages differently, has different skin tones and habits, individuals in their late 20’s to 40’s typically seek out injectable facial treatments.

A: I would not say that, but it certainly can optimize results of any facial reju venative procedure. A brow lift elevates

Q: Liposuction and fat transfer are continuously sought-after procedures. What are the most common myths you hear about these procedures?

From mommy makeovers to filler, Desert Hills Plastic Surgery Center offers an all-encompassing menu of plastic surgery options to their patients. And questions often arise, from the first initial consultation to surgery day.

30

A: Liposuction improves resistant fatty deposits and the overall silhouette of the individual. It typically does not result in any sort of weight loss or clothing size decrease unless a patient does their part with diet and exercise. It is true if you gain weight after liposuction, it can come back both in treated and non-treated areas. Many people think it helps with cellulite and offers a skin tightening effect, but that is a myth. The skin retraction seen is mostly a function of an individual’s skin tone rather than the surgeon or the tech nology used for liposuction. Although certain thermal heating liposuction de vices may offer some skin retraction, re sults can vary and be unpredictable. Fat transfer can also be unpredictable, as a portion of the fat transfer may absorb re quiring more than one session.

Q: Does filler need to be dissolved be fore more filler is added?

A: Filler is not normally dissolved before the addition of more filler. Syringes are usually layered upon each other for the desired effect and to maintain results. Dissolving filler with an enzyme called hyaluronidase has risks of allergic reac

tions, thinning, redness, and bruising of the treated area, so dissolving product is best suited for unsatisfactory results or complications associated with filler.

WHY SURGERY MIGHT BE THE MOST MINIMALLY INVASIVE OPTION FOR YOU

Q: Dr. Poelstra, what is one example of a situation where surgery may the most minimally invasive option for a patient?

A: “Well, I think, first off, that patients deserve to be educated about their diag noses and the technology we are now able to utilize for their problem. We never out of the gate, as typically, hunremitting due to failure could allow ourto. No large in cisions or soft tissue dissection, as place ment of 4 pedicle screws with the robot now only takes maybe 10-12 minutes and causes only a few tea spoons of blood loss. Traditionally, that process could take up to two hours with lengthy hospital stays.

Do you have a herniated disc, stenosis or other spine condition?

Not on Dr. Hillock’s watch! The doctor has seen promising results in this regard through Osseointegration, as well. The coupling of prosthesis with an osseointegrated con nection anchored into the bone (the fe mur or tibia) is a solution that minimizes, and even has the potential to eliminate, phantom limb sensation for patients.

I UNDERSTAND THAT THE STORY OF YOUR RETURNING TO LAS VEGAS HAD A BIT OF DESTINY TO IT?

I’d like to think that fate played a hand in it but either way it does make for a great

Ha ha yes… I guess I should have thought that through. Once I graduated college, I was accepted at Seton Hall Law School back in New Jersey. So, we packed every thing up again and moved back to the East Coast. Living back there was very tough, it was great to see family and friends, but we had very little money and I was deliv ering pizzas to get by. We were living in a converted two car garage, which was small for a growing family, cold, and not what we had become used to in Las Vegas.

THERE WAS NO LAW SCHOOL IN LAS VEGAS BACK THEN, HOW WERE YOU ABLE TO GO TO LAW SCHOOL?

HELLO AL, YOU HAVE BEEN IN LAS VEGAS FOR 30 YEARS, CAN YOU TELL US HOW YOU CAME TO VEGAS AND OWNING LASSO INJURY LAW?

LASSO INJURY LAW IN

THAT IS AN ADMIRABLE DREAM BUT WITHOUT A COLLEGE DEGREE AND 10 YEARS OUT OF HIGH SCHOOL, IT WOULD APPEAR THAT DREAM WAS A LONG WAY OFF.

You know the lure of Las Vegas and the beauty of living here is tough to get out of one’s system and of course the oppor tunities here are unlike anywhere else. We wanted to move back. I had a friend I dealt craps with whose wife played golf with a Judge and gave out my resume to the Judges in Clark County. Judge Bonaventure, one of the most highly re spected and acclaimed jurists in Las Ve gas, was looking to hire a law clerk and took a chance on me. So, for the last time, we once again packed up the U-Hauls and made the final trip back across the coun try to Las Vegas. I was very fortunate in that one of the first cases I worked on as a law clerk was the infamous and worldwide publicized case of the Ted Binion murder trial. I also was the Law clerk for the Jeremy Strohmeyer re-hearing and the Margaret Rudin “Black Widow” murder trial. Those cases really gave me an “into the frying pan” experience in learning the law. I learned much more than anything I ever learned in any law school class. Later, I would be privileged to be hired by the best criminal defense attorney in Las Vegas, Dominic Gentile, who taught me a lot about defending my clients.

OWNING A ONE HOUR PHOTO BUSI NESS IN NEW JERSEY IS A LONG WAY FROM HAVING A TOP-RATED LAW FIRM IN LAS VEGAS, HOW DID THAT COME ABOUT?

many ways attorney Al Las so is the epitome of what Las Vegas is all about. Giving up on the security of complacency, throw ing caution to the wind, betting it all and winning big in the end. This is what Al Lasso did and it paid off not only for him in winning some of the largest verdicts in the United States, but also for the safety of thousands and thousands of people he will never meet. We recently caught up with Al to discuss his journey from casino dealer to one of the most respected attor neys in Las Vegas.

My journey is a little different than most attorneys. I grew up in New Jersey, in a blue-collar family. My mom was a home maker and my dad a fireman. When I graduated from high school, I decided that college was not for me. So, while I always wanted to be an attorney, I did not go in that direction right away. In fact, I opened my own One Hour Photo business in my hometown.

My brother was involved in a very severe car crash that caused him to be paralyzed from the waist down and I saw firsthand how badly he was treated by insurance companies and even attorneys. I made a vow to myself that I would one day be come an attorney and make sure that none of my clients were treated that way. That I would always take care of the “lit tle guy” like my brother that no one else seemed to care about. 10 years out of high school I decided it was time to follow my dream.

That is very true, but that did not stop me. I was 28 years old, and I knew it would take 7 years to complete my dream. I figured, I am going to be 35 either way, so I could be doing the same thing I am doing, or I could be an attorney helping people. I decided to sell my business, sell my home, and move to Las Vegas where I could learn how to deal craps and be able to go to school full-time while working in a casino at night full-time so I could make a living. That is what I did, packed up the family, enrolled in dealers’ school, became a craps dealer, and went to school full time at UNLV. I even worked as an extra in movies such as “Casino” to make additional money while in school. Only in a 24-hour town like Las Vegas does that opportunity present itself.

OK, THAT IS STILL A LONG WAY FROM BEING BACK IN LAS VEGAS AS AN ATTORNEY AND WINNING ONE OF THE LARGEST JURY TRIAL VERDICTS IN HISTORY FOR A SLIP AND FALL CASE.

I was selected to be Judge Bonaven ture’s Law clerk, we had no money to get back to Las Vegas. Basically, we had spent everything we had getting me through law school. The move back would be cost ly. I just could not ask family and friends, without who we never would have made it that far, for anymore help. At the last minute, I had entered my name in a New York Radio station contest.

WE FIGHT FOR YOU

Many people think it is the money and do not get me wrong, I am very happy that my clients will be taken care of for the rest of their lives. However, to me, it is knowing that the home improvement store has changed their watering polices all over the country in an attempt to en sure that no one else will suffer the brain injury my client did. It is also to know that HOA’s everywhere will now inspect their swing sets monthly to ensure that the metal parts are not rusted out and in danger of collapsing, saving young chil dren from severe head injuries. That is truly the most satisfying thing about be ing a trial attorney and I will continue to always fight for my clients like they are family.

It was a contest where if you heard your name on the radio, you had 20 minutes to call in. Once you called in, thirty-six of us would meet on the beach and pull a key out of a fishbowl. Then each of us would have a chance to start a Jeep Wrangler, if your key starts the Jeep, you win two Jeeps. A month later, I found myself on that beach, the 21st in line, as everyone in front of me tried to start the Jeep with the key they had pulled out. With no one in front of me having started the Jeep, it was my turn. I prayed for my key to work as I turned it in the ignition and after a couple of coughs and sputters, the Jeep started, and I won the two Jeeps. We took those winnings and used it to get us all to Vegas and start my legal career.

FINALLY, WHAT IS THE MOST SATISFY ING THING ABOUT THOSE VERDICTS?

The attorneys at Heidari Law Group are fighters, and there are several other factors that make them different from other law firms. First, they are not a trial-only firm. They are involved in the process from A to Z. Also, they are not a personal injury "mill." Firms like that get a case and pass

Heidari, the principle of the Heidari Law Group, was inspired to practice law because he wanted to have a positive impact on the rights and civil liberties of his clients. To understand what drives him, you have to consider the entire story. Like so many other exceptional people, attorney Sam Heidari started as an immigrant to the US. His passion was sparked by what he had seen happen to others around him as a boy. Growing up in a country which by his own admission had a justice system which pales in comparison to what we have here in the States, he felt a responsibility to help oth ers at an early age.

Heidari Law Group, P.C. for being a beacon of hope for the infirmed, and a champion for the rights of those who are suffering. Simply put, Heidari Law Group puts the "personal" In personal in jury representation. It is no wonder then, that Sam Heidari is one of our Top 100 Law yers and one of the Best of MyVegas 2022. We thank them for their diligent service.

For those looking to hire an attorney, Heidari advises that one should do their due diligence. "If the attorney is practicing in the field of personal injury and charges you a consultation fee, that's a red flag for me," states Heidari. While this approach isn't unethical, personal injury clients are often unable to work, dealing with expen sive and accruing medical bills, and are under great psychological pressure as well. The last thing they need is to have to pay a consultation fee up front to speak to an attorney. It is this protective "watchdog" mind state and commitment to best prac tices that makes Heidari Law Group one of the fastest growing law firms in Nevada, with a track record of recovering millions for their clients.

Attorney Sam Heidari started out doing business litigation. However, this did not fulfill his urge to make a difference in the lives of individual citizens. The hallmark of their service is "competent and ethical lawyering." The people that Heidari Law Group services are injured, hurt, or had their personal rights infringed upon, and Sam Heidari feels that helping these people is his true calling.

it off to another firm to handle the litiga tion if, and when they drop the ball. Not the Heidari Law Group. They take a case, and if it needs to be litigated, they handle the litigation from the drafts of the lawsuits all the way up to the final judgment after tri al. This is a massive undertaking but they take the phrase "protecting your client's interest" very seriously. They pride them selves on the 3 D’s: Diligence, Determi nation, and Dedication. According to Sam Heidari, these three words encompass the core values of Heidari Law Group, P.C., in the courtroom, the conference room, and out in public.

So, what's next for Heidari Law Group? They have multiple trials starting in both Nevada and California, and their lawyers are already in that "full-court press" mind state. Also, they will continue to look to wards expansion to be able to bring more of the competent, ethical representation from which they have become known. They already serve clients in Las Vegas, Sacra mento and Orange County, but they never take their eyes off the ball regarding when and where they can protect the rights of the

With a background in family law, estate planning, and criminal defense, as well as experience with workers’ compensation, Joel Hengstler became a partner of THE702FIRM injury attorneys in 2021. Attorney Hengstler has handled thousands of personal injury matters, exclusively representing injured parties. THE702FIRM In jury Attorneys have three $3,000,000 settlements, and consistently receive referrals from other pre-litigation attorneys. This makes them the “lawyer’s lawyer”, in effect. According to Attorney Kane, “We take cases that other firms would turn down because they’re too complex or they don’t see a way to win. But we find ways to resolve them.” Perhaps, this is yet another factor that makes them different from the others.

With this vast expertise, THE702FIRM Injury attorneys are the ones to call. Along with Attorney Kane, attorneys Bradley J. Myers (the other principal of the firm) and Joel Hengstler (who was elevated to partner by Brad and Mike in 2021) are involved in the case pro cess from beginning to end with their clients, and that includes all case prep as well. It’s assuring to have the support of attorneys like Bradley Myers, who handles injury cases of all magnitudes, but primarily focuses on catastrophic injuries and wrongful death for THE702FIRM Injury Attorneys. This includes motor vehicle acci dents, insurance bad faith, slip and fall, wrongful death, dog bite, and product liability cases. Attorney Myers previously worked with insurance companies as well. Needless to say, he’s a valued asset when litigating, and he has been one for 18 years and counting.

One factor that makes THE702FIRM Injury Attorneys dif ferent from other legal practices is the leadership. One of the principals, Michael C. Kane not only has prolific legal experience, but a degree in biological science. This gives THE702FIRM Injury Attorneys an advantage. They have access to a wealth of knowl edge regarding the injuries sustained by their clients, as well as the quality-of-life experienced while, and after their clients recover. It’s kind of difficult to fool these attorneys if you’re on their radar. Attorney Kane used to represent the insurance companies himself. He first worked on the defense side of the aisle, and the irony is that he went from representing the “big guys” to standing up for the “little guy”. Therefore, he has extensive experience with the way insurance companies structure their defenses, what loopholes they seek to use, and many other tricks and tactics employed by the in surance companies. I’d rue the day that I would have to face these attorneys in court if I was one of these corporations.

Well-rounded attorneys, great service, and desirable results. These are the hallmarks of a great firm. We celebrate THE702FIRM Injury Attorneys for protecting us from the greed of the bad apples in the insurance industry, and being there for us as a source of support in our most trying times. We can hardly wait to see what's next for this firm

A lot of that is done in the courtroom and takes a very specialized expertise.

Christopher S. Connell, the Managing Partner for Connell Law, is as passionate about law as they come.

I am originally from Canada and when I first decided to become a lawyer, I sent law school applica tions for the schools with the best aver age weather temperatures. I got into law schools on both coasts but UNLV offered me a scholarship and so I came to visit the school and fell in love with this city and the people here immediately. I love the small town feel with big city ameni ties that Las Vegas has to offer – there is no other place like it on earth.

I’m not sure how many practicing lawyers really choose to become lawyers – I’m starting to think that they were just born that way. You hear people all the time talking about how good they would be as attorneys be cause they love to argue and I’m always glad that those people never end up ac tually doing law. Being a lawyer is about representing people. The best lawyers I know are skilled negotiators who focus on getting the best results for their clients, they are not people that enjoy argument for its own sake. At the end of the day, this is a people business, and helping people is my main priority each and every day.

Attorney Laura Payne has the right combination of experience, dedication and compassion.

When pursuing my undergrad at UNLV, I majored in journalism and worked at the school newspaper and radio station. One of my favorite things about that experience was interviewing people and learning about the issues they were facing.

My reply is always the same: “You aren’t bothering me. I work for you, and if you have a question, never hesitate to call or text me!” I treat every client as though they are my only client.

t’s not something anyone likes to think about, but statistics indicate that most of us will be involved in an accident at some point. When that happens, anxiety can really kick in. We’re constantly bombarded by billboards, commercials, and ads for personal injury attorneys in Las Vegas—what should you look for when choosing representation?

What sparked your interest in becoming an attorney?

What legal services do you provide?

I grew up here. It’s where my family and friends live and where I am raising my three sons. I’m just as passionate about our community as I am my clients. I sup port several youth sports leagues and volunteer frequently with community outreach charities. When I am not work ing or attending my sons’ baseball games, you’ll find me practicing yoga, skiing or riding ATVs. MV

Attorney Jonathan Weber has experienced many approaches to the attorney-client re lationship in his 21 years of work at larger Las Vegas firms, small firms, defense and plaintiff’s firms, in litigation, mediation and in pre-litigation. And no matter the law firm, clients need answers to their ques tions and concerns, details of progress, and an overall view of how their case is going. Personal attention, paired with timely and consistent client communication is a stan dard he holds himself to as a personal-inju ry solo practitioner in an increasingly com petitive arena dominated by billboard law firms with million-dollar ad campaigns and slick media slogans.

“I don’t think there is a more diverse, yet close knit group in all the world. All drawn together for the love of the sport, the love of the road, and a love of the freedom of being on a bike,” Jared states, regarding his love for the motorcycle community.

his event inspired Jared to do the same for others, ultimately graduat ing with a music degree and entering law school. After three years of train ing in litigation at a major law firm, Jared started representing personal injury victims and came to the realization that this was his calling. After representing one motorcycle rider, over the years Jared represented more and more riders and became friends with many of his clients, eventually buying a Har ley Davidson of his own.

Most law firms employ an army of legal assistants and paralegals that effectively “wall off” the handling attorney from actu ally speaking to clients. (Try calling a large law firm and ask to speak with an attorney – at best you’ll talk to a paralegal who can’t give legal advice, or just be transferred to the attorney’s voicemail - that’s it.) Jon athan takes calls directly from his clients and reaches out proactively. Direct commu nication regarding case status gives Jona than’s clients the level of personal service they need and respect they deserve. It’s the difference between simply being a number, and having your needs taken seriously. It’s Jonathan’s personal service for his client’s personal injuries. MV

Jared says the freedom of the road is like nothing else, but the dangers are very real. No matter how tough and skilled you are, being on a bike causes you to be vulnerable to external forces beyond your control. To promote rider safety, Jared actively supports riding seminars and regularly offers scholar ships to accident scene management cours es. One important case the firm has coming up involves motorcycle riders and their civil rights. Jared and his team have taken this case to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, only one step below the United States Supreme Court. The ruling of this court will affect all Nevadans and help protect their rights.

Jared is not just about protecting the cycling community. The team is hoping to resume providing free wills as a service to local se niors, which has been put on pause due to the COVID-19 shutdown. The team at Full Throttle is also co-sponsoring with a lo cal rider and driver’s education foundation MATTRS, hoping to encourage drivers to be more aware of motorcycle riders and help riders find greater safety on the road.

Jared Richards wasn’t always interested in law as he is today. Originally focused on his music career, Jared sang in musicals and operas, planning to get his masters and PhD. in music. Until Jared’s family suffered a tragic loss in his final year of college. His uncle, a lawyer, stepped in and acted as a crisis manager for the family.

But there is an advantage to managing your own solo law firm: you know your clients very well, and they know you.

For several years, I had the opportunity to work with a large homebuilder and sell multiple product lines across the Las Ve gas Valley. I consider it a huge value-add when you can speak to the processes of a New Construction Build. It’s extreme ly important to set expectations with surrounding build timelines, deposit re quirements, design options, lot premi ums, incentives, and be able to navigate builder’s individual purchase agreements. Buying a brand-new home is an amaz ing experience but can be overwhelming with the amount of information a client has to absorb. It’s a lot of decision mak ing up front and in the majority of cases, you’re in contract 9-12 months before closing, so it’s important to stay engaged throughout the process and keep a con sistent dialogue. I always strive to set my clients up for long term success and make sure they don’t “over-content” the home, so they are in a strong equity position amongst the neighborhood.

advise all my clients to ensure they have exceptional photography, Matterport tours, drone shots, home videos and vir tual staging/regular staging if the home is vacant. It doesn’t matter if the home is $200k or $12 million, a consumer will spend 30 seconds or less viewing their property online. Your photos and listing verbiage need to highlight the features and benefits that make the home unique, and create a proposition for a buyer that’s intriguing. It’s also important that sellers understand who they are marketing their home to. Is it a lifestyle buyer? Family buyer? Active adult?

“No limit” is his motto and he welcomes the opportunity to inspire others to reach their goals. George shared some insight to what has contributed to his success over the years. “What I find is the big gest mistake people make in their career is they're afraid to ask for the business.

here is nothing stronger than the power of motivation. MYVEGAS has seen this power come to life within Jared Weiss, a local real estate investor and owner of Motion Properties, who has remained dedi cated and motivated since a young age. There was nothing he couldn’t do once he set his mind to it, and along the way, realized that the real reward in success is being able to give back and serve.

After remodeling, Jared thought it would be important to let the whole world see the newly remodeled pink home. When Muhammed sadly passed away, the funer al procession drove by the home and the people were so grateful to see the same color it was when he was a child. Jared recalls, “Thousands of people came and dropped flowers and saw it, and I felt so proud that it wasn’t left how it was

After the pur chase of his first home, he started to fix up houses to later sell and flip for prof it. There was so much potential in some older homes that just needed some TLC to get it to a good selling point. Jar ed enjoys the process of the remodel. While it started with just one house, it began building into a business model for Jared, expanding from one house at a time to thousands.

Your surroundings or upbringing does not define you. You are defined by your fight and grit.”

Jared shares his experience of seeing Mu hammad Ali speak during Black history month with Mike Tyson, while he was a student at UNLV. He remembers being moved by his inspiration and attitude, and felt that they had much in common, believing that anything is possible and can be done if you put the work behind it. When he saw Ali’s childhood home in shambles, in that moment, purchasing the home in Louisville, Kentucky and remodeling it to its original 1940’s glory would be the right thing to do. It would be the chance to let not only the neigh borhood kids, but the whole world see where the greatest of all time came from. Proving to Muhammad’s fans that, “Your surroundings or upbringing does not de fine you. You are defined by your fight and grit,” as Jared says.

Jared opened his own real estate compa ny called Motion Properties, noting his constant motivation to stay in motion. In Jared’s eyes, no means yes and stop means go. And he has always been this way, it’s how he was made. But it’s got ten him where he is, so we’d firmly say it’s working for him. “It’s how I’m able to stay

Regardless of the industry in which one participates, the one thing that connects us all is that we are all con sumers. As consumers, we all have the realistic expectation of great service. Drawing from his own experiences with this, Nate Strager is empathetic to the plight of both the buyer and the seller, and is determined to provide just that, excellent service. There is a huge differ entiation between the brand of service that Mr. Strager offers, and that of other realtors. “It doesn’t matter if I’m listing a $300,000 condo or a $3,000,000 house, I treat every client as luxury,” submits Nate. One way he accomplishes this is by absorbing the costs of such things as maid services, landscapers, profession al photographers, aerial overlays, and even the drones themselves. He also provides virtual staging and 3D tours for his client’s properties, and this is all done out of his own pocket. This “skinin-the-game” attitude is something on which Nate Strager prides himself. What’s more, Nate also has two market ing teams who will market your proper ty via social media, and other channels as well, which all but guarantees the proper exposure for your listing(s). Mr. Strager will even go so far as to throw housewarming parties for his clients, with the only motive of providing them with an extraordinary experience, and nothing less.

By Daryl K Jones

We congratulate realtor Nate Strager as one of the trailblazers of real estate and foresee great innovations coming from his camp, as they work to revolutionize the industry with their redefinition and embodiment of service.

Even though the company is called Lux ury Estates International, it is import ant to note that Nate deals in all things real estate, at every price range. These offerings include everything from single family homes, condos and townhomes to multifamily homes and even land deals. The “luxury” in Luxury Estates International is only indicative of the level of treatment that his clients re ceive and does not symbolize or reflect any one specialty or price point, as Nate is not one to be pigeon-holed or limited in his endeavors. Mr. Strager also makes himself available to his clients twen ty-four hours daily and answers his own calls despite having several staff mem bers at his disposal. This allows Mr. Strager to provide a much-needed per sonal touch that is essential in not only the real estate industry, but in business as a whole. Yet another feather in the cap of Nate Strager as it relates to the provision of service excellence.

F

or 18 years, Nate Strager has been successfully helping his clients receive the best possible advan tages in their real estate transac tions. From residential to commercial, Mr. Strager has used his expertise to give every potential property owner the kind of service that is usually reserved for only millionaires. Born in Long Beach, Cali fornia, Nate Strager moved to Las Vegas around the age of five. Being a resident of the Silver State for that long gives him a unique perspective of not only the mar ket, but the people who comprise that market. This is partly what drives him to adopt the business model that he has im plemented for over a decade.

SERVICE IS EVERYTHING PERSONIFYING THE DIFFERENCE WITH NATE STRAGER

So, what’s next for realtor Nate Strager? Currently, Nate is making plans to ex pand his brand into the San Diego, Cali fornia market. Luckily for them, the peo ple of the Golden State will be receiving the same opportunity to work with Nate Strager as those in the Silver State.

Philanthropist and owner of Rhythms Event Center, Nate Strager is a rare breed of realtor. He’s constantly exploring ways to add more value to every situation with which he is involved. Nate Strager built his business with Luxury Estates International primarily on two core values: “Service is everything” and “You deserve great service.”

The requirements, at that time, did not “assure” the investor that once they purchased a property, they would be ap proved with proper permitting, and other requirements. As a result, she elected to stay out of that area of practice, UNTIL a faithful client shared with her, who and how, he was operating a success ful Airbnb with. Finally, she found her new Airbnb partner.

Beginning in 2013, Patty had people be gin to approach her wanting to “invest” into the Airbnb market. Since she is al ways committed to “complete” under standing of a topic, and awareness of the subject responsibly passed through to the client, Patty dove in, head first, to in vestigate this newly developing platform and communicate the information to the clients. “I had extensive conversations with city and county officials, obtaining the requirements for my clients, the steps they’d need to take in order to create a successful and “legal” Airbnb investment operation,” she said.

We have very strict noise and property care agreements and with our own con cierge services and maintenance, our properties are kept in pristine condition. Every property is unique to the next but having a complete support system in place will allow you to maximize your return-on-investment portfolio. Our partnership and commitment to owners and investors goes hand in hand with our success. With the right investors and the right property portfolio, our company supports everyone’s investment.

t the helm of a unique Airb nb model, she has joined with a partner whose system of management has never before been executed with such dynamic results. Combined, they skillfully harness the real estate ownership side and the extensive Airbnb operations, proving they have what it takes to “generate and anchor” huge results for their clients.

With her skill set of buying, selling, and identifying real estate for clients, as well as negotiating and “landing” the properties for her clients, coupled with her partner’s understanding of the Airb nb world, they work together like peanut butter and jelly.

When it comes to mastering the real estate market, encompassing luxury real estate, high-rise, new homes, and Airbnb, Patty Linson has what it takes to pull it all together.

In addition to more money moving into RE investment because of inflation, the cost of building homes, for example, increas es dramatically. Construction costs are a factor of both materials and labor. Does anyone think either will be cheaper in the next couple of years?

The best piece of advice that I can give any property owner to avoid this costly mistake is to set up a Living Trust. Most of our estate plan is to live forever. Es tate planning is the only way to protect assets, reduce tax obligations, and avoid probate. Only about 5% of property own ers have their real estate protected in a trust. Not having your property in a trust is like filing a civil lawsuit against your own estate, with the government left in charge.

he only thing crashing now, or the near future, is the value of the dol lar. Because of that, and other fac tors, real estate values in Las Vegas will continue to increase. Even though home prices in town have increased over 30% in the last 2 years, I predict they’ll continue to rise almost 1% per month for 2022, barring another black swan event.

This leads to builders not being able to keep up with current demand and growth, adding more pressure on prices. There were less homes built in the last 10 years than any decade since the 1960’s. Babies are being born faster than homes being built. CNBC published an article stating, “The U.S. is short 5.24 million homes, an increase of 1.4 million from the 2019 gap of 3.84 million.”

in-house profession al staging offers clients the ability to have their homes professionally staged, whether they are vacant or occupied. Some agents might say, “Why bother? It’s a seller’s market. It will sell if we just throw a sign in their front yard.” That is true, but at Reside, the goal is not to just sell the home. The goal is to sell the home for the maximum amount in the shortest amount of time. Having a home profes sionally staged has proven time and time again, that it works. Homes sell faster and for more money when staged. With Re side Luxury, staging is incorporated into the agreement, so that no outside costs are incurred.

What else does Reside Luxury offer to ensure their clients are completely sat isfied? They also provide professional photography, drone photography, virtu al tours and digital floorplans, because, obviously, first impressions matter most when it comes to selling a house. When Reside Luxury’s listings are profession ally staged and photographed, they’ve just increased the likelihood that more buyers will be interested in scheduling an appointment to view the home in person, and of course this increases the chances for more offers to be submitted!

Reside Luxury is a concierge-driven bou tique real estate agency that is constantly striving to offer their clients more than anyone else.

A common topic discussed on Las Vegas Real Estate Now with Harvey Blankfeld is Wire Fraud. Blankfeld warns that there are “bad guys watching (your emails) at all times.” He brings awareness that these criminals watch and wait specifically for real estate transactions to be made. “They mimic the escrow company or the lender to encourage you to send a large wire off to them.” Blankfeld strongly sug gests that the way to combat this type of fraud is to “make the phone call,” mean ing call your lender or escrow company to verify that these new instructions are

According to contributor John Ingram of Prosperity Home Mortgage, the show is to serve as a tool for those looking to make decisions on real estate. Harvey Blank feld and his contributors including Mr. Ingram, actively enjoy educating people on the industry and sharing the reality of what changes are happening.

“I was hired by Western Title as a sales representative. In 1989, I moved from Western Title to Chicago Title Agency of Las Vegas, and I purchased the company, which a few years later became United Title of Nevada,” recalls Jeff Harris, regarding his experience in the title and escrow services industry. After much hard work and many long hours, he retired in 2018 to spend more time with his golf clubs and his family (he’s a proud grandfather of five little southern Nevadans).

She began with the compa ny in 2017 as Director of Operations, and by December 2020 she had already been listed on Forbes 30 Under 30 in Energy.

Alexia Cooper’s resolve to be the best version of herself that she can be, fully translates in the way that Bell Solar does business under her leadership. She ex presses that integrity is the number one core value for both herself and the com pany. “We say what we mean and do what we say we’re going to do,” explains Alex ia. The company’s mission, “Rewiring the world to build a sustainable future for generations to come,” signifies that the focus is not only on the “now”, but more importantly on the future of alternative energy resources.

These are the core values of Bell Solar & Electric Systems, as set forth by its CEO, Alexia Cooper. With her “Just Focus and Do It” attitude, she has revolutionized not only the space in which she operates, but also the way business is done in general.

In the words of Richard Branson, “If you take care of your employees, your employees will take care of your customers.” This is a tenet of business that is not lost on Alexia and may very well be the reason the company has maintained a high regard in the re newable energy space.

3. Clean, visible stripes around your parking spaces and easily iden tifiable pavement markings can improve safety in your parking lot. Drivers will experience less confusion, and pedestrians will be able to identify the safest route between their cars and your en trance. When you need to re paint your markings and stripes, ask you contractor to check your parking lot design to ensure that traffic flow is optimized to elim inate congestion areas. It would be best if you also asked your contractor to verify that your de sign meets ADA requirements.

Your parking lot’s overall condition, the age of the pavement, the amount of maintenance it has received since its in stallation, and the traffic your lot receives can affect the type and frequency of the procedures it needs. However, parking lot maintenance companies typically recom mend the following.

If you do not maintain your asphalt pave ment, it will deteriorate at an accelerat ed rate. The sun can dry out the binder holding the pavement together, cracks will form, and potholes can develop. The foundation can become destabilized, and an unstable foundation can lead to alligator cracking, larger potholes, and deeper cracks. Your parking lot will have a shorter life and require costlier repairs. However, there are other potential conse quences if you neglect your parking lot. The safety of those using your lot can be impacted, and you could find yourself as a defendant in a lawsuit if someone suffers a personal injury or damages his vehicle. You could lose business if customers or tenants find your parking lot unwelcom ing, and your reputation as a responsible, caring company could be tarnished. Fur thermore, if your parking lot layout does not fully comply with the ADA require ments for safety and design, you could possibly be sued or fined.

1. Apply sealcoating once your new pavement has fully cured, then repeat the procedure every two to five years. Sealcoat blocks the ra diation from the sun that leaves asphalt faded and dry, and it can retard the progress of automotive fluids that can create soft spots in the pavement. Sealants can also restore the color of the pavement.

WHY IS PAVEMENT MAINTENANCE IMPORTANT?

4. Remove piles of sand, gravel, or trash that can damage or stain your sealant. Oil and other petrochem ical spills should be thoroughly cleaned as soon as possible; they will be easier to remove while they are fresh. As petrochemicals will eventually penetrate your seal ant and reach your pavement, you should not let these spills remain for more than a few months.

Well-constructed asphalt pavement has a luxurious dark color that is aestheti cally pleasing and a smooth, even surface that provides excellent safety features. If the pavement is engineered correctly and receives the maintenance needed, an asphalt parking lot can last for up to 30 years before it needs a significant re pair or reconstruction. However, parking lot maintenance companies know that a neglected pavement can fail in as little as eight years if it receives no maintenance. It can fail within 15 years if it only gets a little care on a haphazard schedule. Although asphalt is an economical pav ing choice, it is always less expensive to maintain your parking lot than replace it. Furthermore, a poorly maintained, di lapidated parking lot can leave you with other potential costs.

A: Everyone is beautiful! Beautiful is the courage to be yourself. That’s the true beauty in my opinion. As the photogra pher, it is my responsibility to recognize that in my clients and convey it into an actual image.

A: Huh, thank God there are still many to cross off! I believe you should always have some challenges lined up in your life! Not circumstantial, set by you! Do not stop challenging yourself in personal and professional development through out life. As my good friend Scott used to say to me when I was just starting, “Sky is the limit.” In the near future I would love to do a wedding photo and video ses sion in Alaska or on Mount Kilimanjaro, and more locally, Sequoia National Park.

Q: Photography, Videography, Photo Studio and Photo Booths. A one-stopshop by the looks of it. How much is this a decision-making factor for your clients when they decide to book your services?

Q: Do you shoot B&W photography?

Q: What are some big-name companies you worked with?

132 EXPERIENCED PHOTOGRAPHER WHO’LL MEET YOUR NEEDS MEET NIKOLA WITH LV PHOTOGRAPHY

Q: What makes LV Photography different from other photographers?

Q: The photo shoot you still want to do. Something that would push your limits as the artist and the photographer?

MYVEGAS had the chance to sit down with Nikola Prvanovic, the owner, photographer, and videographer of LV Photography, and learned all about his love for photography. We asked him some burning questions that our readers were dying to know, see his answers below!

A: It is a big factor for sure! Imagine your big wedding day is coming up or your tech company is part of a convention at the Las Vegas Convention Center, you have to book all three services from different vendors. Three different vendors, person alities, locations, meetings, emails and text correspondences and work styles. It can be a bit cumbersome. When the opportunity presents itself that you can commission all three services with one studio, where all three teams work in uni son and with one goal, there is little to think about. It’s usually just, are you are available for our date?

A: Besides wedding photography ser vices locally and outside of Vegas when I can, my studio also provides wedding vid eography and photo booth services. Ad ditionally, I’m available for commercial photo shoots, portraits, headshots, senior photos, family shoots, or even fitness or modeling photo shoots. We strive to pro vide a genuine and positive experience paired with top quality work. I encourage all who read this great magazine to Goo gle us.

A: Yes. Absolutely. I believe that the B&W photography gets under the skin, you get to really see the person. But I do enjoy shooting both.

Wherever you want gorgeous, authentic photos, you can rely on Nikola Prvanovic of LV Photography. Throughout his years photographing, Nikola has captured hun dreds of events. With his experience, he can make suggestions on the best light ing and locations and is happy to suggest makeup and hair artists, florists, venues, and hotels for your wedding celebrations.

A: Well... to skip the long story and not fill the article alone just by answering that one question: I would say that my love for photography was born through people that have influenced me throughout my life and sustained by all that inspires me!

Q: As a photographer, how do you make sure that the person you want to shoot looks beautiful?

For all your photography needs, contact LV Photography at 702-741-5763 or visit nikolalvphotography@gmail.comLVPhotography.com.

A: When Amazon opened their facility here, we recorded and photographed the grand opening. We have also completed commercial photography work for Mi crosoft and many other companies. I’m looking forward to seeing the Las Ve gas Convention Center reopen and start working with new companies and our regular companies on big productions.

Q: Let’s start with the most important question. How did you develop an inter est in photography?

Las Vegas Judge was booted off the Clark County Family Court Bench back in 2014. He ran again for the Family Court Bench and was defeated once again in 2020. Now he is making one more desperate at tempt in 2022 for the Las Vegas Justice of the Peace Bench. This judge appears to be seeking security in the (PERS) Public Em ployees' Retirement System of Nevada.

This same Judge presided over a case of a divorce and custody battle between a Veteran and his wife of 18 years with two children. The Veteran had limited income, yet did his best to fight for fair custody of the children and to compel the Judge to en force the custody and visitation orders that were in place. The mother kept denying the Veteran his fair time with the children, costing the Veteran thousands of dollars in legal fees to appear before the Judge, to ask him to enforce the orders and to hold mom in contempt. The Judge refused to hold the mother in contempt and the mother continued to refuse contact between the Veteran and the children, causing severe depression and financial problems for the Veteran. Orders of the Court must have bark and bite and not be a “toothless tiger.” In a case like this, when a litigant knows that they will not be held accountable for their actions, it is no wonder that people enjoy the “Kangaroo Court” put in place by this Judge. After countless motions that were never enforced by the Judge, thou sands of dollars in legal fees, and depres sion from not seeing his children, the Vet eran committed suicide. RIP brother.

Our mission is: To educate, organize, and awaken our veterans and their families to select, support, and intelligently vote for those candidates who would help create a better world, to protect ourselves from our government(s) in a culture of corruption, and to be the political voice for those in other groups who do not have one. Veter ans In Politics claims sole responsibility for this story.

Further misappropriations from this Judge include violating the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act, Discrimination against a US Ma rine Veteran. The point is Clark County can sure do better and this Judge has got to stay gone! He is a total disappointment to the Bench and every member of our US military past and present!

Veterans In Politics International (VIPI) with overwhelming evidence declares it a fact that this Judge is no friend to our US Veterans he has earned the thumbs down based on the years of incompetence on the bench. This is because of his unfair treat ment of litigants, especially US Veterans. The Judge once ruled that a 100% Service Connected Disabled Veteran is “willful ly” unemployed, despite the fact that the veteran was deemed unemployable and housebound by the Department of Veter ans Affairs after years of medical exams, , and evaluations by doctors and Whilespecialists.the evidence submitted during the trial had nothing to do with the employ ment status of the Veteran, this Judge took it upon himself during the ruling to go beyond the scope of the evidence and rule that the disabilities were for “carrying guns and military equipment in the Army,” and had no relevance to civilian life or the ability to work, therefore the Veteran was willfully unemployed and the basis for his decision to deny modification of financial obligations that put the Veteran at risk for

Check your mind to make sure it is filled with positive thoughts related to the vi sion of how your mate looks. Examine to detect the presence of whatever it is that is holding you back.

Bring together or into contact so that a real or notional link is established. Watch your vision become a reality. Start at tracting who you want.

your declaration, say, “I am the one who determines and decides who I want to at tract into my life.” The infinite has given this to you and it is up to you to deter mine this. According to your acceptance of this belief be it done unto you. How much are you willing to accept? You have the secret sauce inside of you to start at tracting, setting your intention sets the tone for the attracting of who you want.

“Experience dating from an expanded conscious perspective.” - C. Regi Rodgers

Who do you see yourself with? Decide who you want to attract. You must con nect with your intention to have them, then you must believe that you will re ceive what you ask for. Pour all your energy and concentration into seeing it becoming a reality. Everything you want will happen, but it will happen at the right time. You must keep believing. I want you to see, hear, smell, and touch the mate you’re looking to create. Make it as real as you possibly can, feel them as if you have them already. Add as many details as you can, focus on the end result of attracting who you want. Consider that thoughts are things, and that thinking in a certain way can create concrete changes and attract to you what you desire. Everything that you are ready for is ready for you.

Everything begins as a thought that turns into an idea. All of the material things in your life are manufactured out of the ideas of your mind. Developing an orig inal and creative idea requires thinking. We are constantly broadcasting through our thoughts what we are attracting in our physical realm. A manifestation is where your thoughts and your energy can create your reality. The first thing to do when manifesting is to take a look at your thoughts and feelings. If you are constantly being negative, then you are going to attract negative energy. Your personality becomes your personal real ity. You are the one who determines and decides who you want to attract in your life. I want you to affirm this. Make this

START ATTRACTING WHO YOU WANT

Regi’s “SECRET SAUCE” to attraction:

The secret sauce is within you. The term “secret sauce” has come to mean the thing that you do that makes you unique. But first, you must determine what makes you unique.

Step 1 - CLEAN

Everyone serves their own individual idea of what they desire. You must be clear, and specific in regards to what you want to attract. There is a consciousness on the individual level and each one of us has our own concept of what we formu late by way of an idea in our mind. You relate to your own individual concept of what you want to attract. Once again, you determine what you want to attract by CLEANING, CREATING, CHECKING and CONNECTING. When you recognize this secret sauce, you then understand this power that you have within you. You can attract to you who you want.

iscover the thing in you that would cause someone to be attracted to you. Do you real ize that you are a magnet? You can attract a conscious partner. You will become the source to what it means to attract what you want. It’s nothing magi cal, it’s just understanding how to attract your conscious mate on a spiritual and energetic level. Please note, you have the secret sauce to fulfilling what you desire. You must be deliberate and you must be intentional. This secret sauce can become the power of your imagination. As much as you can see yourself attracting who you desire, you will attract them. As much as you can feel yourself having them, you will have them. Let your imagination ex pand, this becomes your secret sauce.

Do everything possible to clean and de clutter your thoughts so that you can do everything possible to achieve what you desire.

Step 3 - CHECK

Step 2 - CREATE

Create the vision of what your mate looks like. Bring it into existence.

was always something his family did all together, although like most parents, they did most of the work. From digging in the ground to playing with lady bugs, planting seeds and harvesting the vegetables, Michael remembers it as a positive experience in his life. Today, he loves devoting time to the things that take time to flourish. In his own home, he has grown 3 generations of gardens in his space, over nearly 20 years. He has even made the incredibly fertile dirt that fills the gardens via composting yard waste.

in various aspects of ac counting, construction, fast food and even being a paperboy as a young man, the mix in Michael’s life experiences gives him a unique ability to see both sides of most issues, challenges and solutions. In gardening planting next to a wall might give you shade, but it might also radiate plant killing heat, and the same might be true for your business.

“I feel like when I help my clients grow, it is something we grew together,” says Michael. Growing anything, from a garden to a business takes a plan, patience and hard work.

No amount of success can make up for failures in your health and home. Be Better at MattersWhat

The bathroom in a condo I was renting had the most awful showerhead. It came with three settings: bearable, rip your skin off water pressure, and barely a driz zle. I chose the bearable setting most

Be Better at MattersWhat

was the bearable setting proved erratic. The nozzles spewed water in ran dom directions, including out onto the bathroom f loor, and up into my eyes. Most sprayed at a normal forward trajec tory, but a few went rogue.

There is space for venting. It’s when the venting devolves into consistent grum bling that it crosses a line. Once we start “venting” as often as anyone will listen, we’re doing something else. If we revive the same frustrations over and over only to feel frustrated, it becomes pointless. Stressing doesn’t make anything better. Complaining has never changed a con dition, remedied a single problem, or re paired any damage. It doesn’t even make us feel better. In fact, complaining often makes us feel worse. More upset. More irritated. More defeated. Less powerful. With an assist from Amazon Prime ship ping, a new, more precise showerhead was sitting on my doorstep about six hours after my epiphany. I hooked it up and took it for a spin. The water ran down my back in flawless streaks. Immersed in familiar but since forgotten bliss, a fitting quote popped into my head to accompa ny the lesson of which I’d been reminded.

The situation made me think about how we do this in life with issues of greater consequence. How we so often gripe about things within our control while taking no action to address the matter. Futile fussing becomes second-nature.

During the pandemic, Bavarese made the decision to close for two months to refine the menu, to ensure he can still provide the same overall experience through a changing world and dynamic. Now a din ner-only restaurant, with a shortened menu, guests can still expect the same incredible service and freshness. A 35year restaurant industry pro, and owner of several restaurants over the years, Ba varese believes in quality over quantity.

When dining with Limoncello, you can expect freshness from the pasta to the prime meat, and everything in between. While fresh doesn’t always mean healthy, in Limoncello’s case, it pretty much does.

Giuseppe, who also developed Prosecco Fresh Italian Kitchen in the southeast area, is the kind of restaurateur that Las Vegas strives for. Requiring only the best ingredients, the highest quality beef and poultry, and the most traditional meth ods of cooking for their signature dishes, it is no wonder that Limoncello has re ceived such praise after two years.

After developing and opening Prosecco to full capacity, he and his wife sold their shares to build a more structured and refined setting with private rooms in Li moncello Fresh Italian Kitchen.

THE TRUE TASTE OF THE SOUTH

John soon realized that not a single BBQ restaurant around the valley resembled the true Southern roots of home. He de cided it was time to take his mobile smok er/grill to the side of Russell Road, in a hardware store parking lot with his dad and brother to put the true taste of the South in everyone’s mouth. The first day, the team sold 3 sandwiches. The second day, they sold 7 and continued to grow their business, deciding to open their first brick and mortar location in 2012. Shortly after, Rick Harrison and his father became regulars at the restaurant, eventually of fering them a partnership in the plaza next to Gold and Silver Pawn Shop.

The moment you walk through the door of any of their three Las Vegas locations, you are met with genuine Southern hos pitality. The meats are smoked with Hick ory wood and prepared with the “low and slow” process, and you can taste the love and effort put into the mouthwatering meats at Rollin Smoke. Some of the most famous dishes at the restaurant include the Fried Catfish, Beef Ribs, and Smoked Meatloaf. The diverse menu and home made sauces cover a range of palates, es pecially the BBQ craving ones.

Serving delectable barbeque is not the only astounding act that John and his team bring to the Vegas community. At the Highland location, they have a special menu where a portion of the proceeds go to “Critical Care Comics,” an incredible

In the next ten years, there are exciting plans of expansion to bring their BBQ and southern love all over the United States. They also offer sauces and rubs on the website, as well as catering services for 10 to 10,000 people. Stay tuned as they con tinue to keep Rollin’! MV

John had no idea that his once small mo bile smoker/grill would grow to this ex tent, and continuously expand. Winning numerous BBQ competitions, receiving national recognition in the top 16 Hottest New Barbeque restaurants, recognition as Top 20 best Barbeque restaurants in the country, being featured on channels like Food Network, Discovery Channel, and many more are just a few of Rollin Smoke’s accomplishments over the years.

The moment you walk through the door, you are met with genuine Southern hospitality.

better than a perfectly cooked cut of meat, and Pampas has that down to a science. Their most well-known cuts of meat include the picanha, which is their top sirloin seasoned with kosher salt and cooked slowly with its fat cap over an open flame, so it bastes naturally while it’s roasting. The result is a tender and flavorful cut of beef. Along with their quality selection of meats you will also find an endless buffet of sides and salads. Among them, make sure to try the pão de queijo, also known as Brazilian cheese bread, which always comes fresh from the oven. Don’t forget to take advantage of their full bar, with traditional options and Brazilian classic cocktails.

Maybe the most instagramable place since Café Lola, the Halloween Emporium has only been open for a couple of months and has already taken over influencer profiles as the place for all things horror and, well, tea. The bright orange sign and friendly ghost mascot may have caught your eye on Fort Apache Rd, or you’ve seen highlights on social media, but however you find out about this place, know that it’s definitely worth checking out. When I noticed it on my way home after work, I nearly swerved right into the parking lot and checked it out myself. Thankfully, I grew some patience and waited to fully review the experience with my partner in crime.

On one very chilling afternoon, in the middle of summer, Laura and I arrived at our next day out in Vegas. When you first arrive and open the door, you are greeted by an 8-foot-tall skeleton and something to look at in every single corner. There is literally so much to look at that you could probably spend an hour in here just circling the room over and over, because maybe you missed something the first time. From decor to collectibles, ghost hunting equipment to costumes, there is so much for your eyes (and wallets) to

uch more than a circus actually, Lost Spirits Distillery made its appearance in Las Vegas as an attraction for those that love to be entertained, and liquor lovers everywhere. And isn’t that what Vegas is all Bringingabout?together cirque, burlesque, and the love of alcohol, Lost Spirits Distillery has quickly become a destination for everyone’s Friday night. And ours was up next. We were scheduled for the 7pm entry and made sure to be right on time. You first line up to get your tickets checked, you’ll receive your boarding pass and then you’re off to the races. Which also means, you get your first taste of alcohol.

TICKETS

Now this is a distillery, so prepare to have some serious drinks in your hands. I’ll be the first to say that the drinks served are not your everyday cocktail, but I did make sure to taste all of the drinks presented to us. With the ticket choice that you select, you will have a certain number of drinks included which are all 90 proof and above. Their website and their rules strongly discourage pregaming before and driving after your visit.

On your journey around, you also will find plenty of space to sit and relax and enjoy the next liquor drink on your tour, and maybe snap a few photos for the memo-

ries. Normally, during a cirque show, you wouldn’t have the opportunity to talk with your party about what you’ve just watched, but that is more than possible here at Lost Spirits. In fact, this is the perfect spot for a date, as you’re slowly drinking more, you’ll have more than enough to say between each show.

A circus from the outside, and much more on the inside, Lost Spirits Distillery is one of the most immersive experiences you can find in Vegas. An almost underground circus, maybe the lost spirits are referencing more than just the alcohol? That’s for you to find out!

Basically a show tasting and a drink tasting in one, your experience is self-guided, so enjoy your freedom through countless rooms of performances and shows unlike anything you’ve seen before. From snake charmers to mind readers, you will be constantly entertained without a doubt. Called a “full blown cirque show” just without the seats, you’ll find yourself within feet of some of the best performers in the world.

RESID3NCY is a lifestyle hat brand dedicated to making people feel proud about either where they are currently living or from.

WHY VEGAS?

Our design team sets the direction for which cities are launched and where we go next. We won’t launch a city unless we are absolutely in love with the design/city logo. We pride ourselves in providing great service and quality products. So, it’s very important that our growth plan reflects that. We want people to feel proud and comfortable wearing our products.

WHEN DO YOU SEE THE BRAND OPENING A LOCAL STORE?

I think the first goal is to partner with retailers throughout the US so we can have our products showcased in their respective stores. This will allow us a broader reach and enable us to service more customers.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LOCAL HOT SPOT?

WHO KNEW?!

Our goal is to pull on heartstrings and touch people and cities. We want to make people feel excited about repping places that they keep near and dear to their hearts, but doing so in style and through fashion.

RESID3NCY overall is currently in 12 US Markets, but all the owners of Resid3ncy, Angelo Iseppi, Andrew Rivas and Zach King, have ties in Las Vegas. It has always been a special part of our lives in some way or another. Very proud to see what this city has become, and the direction in which Vegas is going.

WHO IS YOUR DREAM ENDORSEMENT?CELEBRITY

My favorite local spot in Vegas is Drai’s Nightclub. Not only because of the music, but I feel they do a great job with their various artist residencies. They have a wide range of artists constantly coming each week, and you can literally see the crowd reacting and enjoying themselves. I think they hit a market that was underserviced, which was what we are trying to do at RESID3NCY!

For 2022, we have 4 cities identified that are launching... Phoenix, Pittsburgh, Jacksonville, and Cincinnati!
