publisher’s note

> So, how many of you are thinking they should have bought some Apple® shares in 2009 at the $80 mark… now in the $500 neighborhood…? Possibly a similar scenario will happen in the housing market. This is America, everything can happen and much faster then you think. Our advertisers are also coming out of the bushes again knowing it’s time to move ahead of the rest! While feedback is always great with our Style Magazines, our incentives to our advertisers certainly helped to get the ball rolling. For those advertisers still undecided what to do, we are here to help and we will work with you to get real results and not only big words… Our 200,000+ month readers will get the message. Winter Park Magazine closed their doors in January 2012. It’s unfortunate to have seen them go. Someone bought the rights to the name, but we all know it will never be the same. We are here to fill the gap. Please refer our magazine to your friends in Winter Park, to add on to our already excellent circulation with thousands of subscribers in that area… Your questions and comments are welcomed! (info@styletome.com) Spring is in the air once again and the seasonality of the weather always seems to remind us that we should enjoy our life each moment of every day. Certainly one of those enjoyable times is to pick up this copy of Orlando Style Magazine with its fantastic Pool/Swimwear fashion shoot, not to forget those great, informative articles and reports.

Body Check

> It feels like just last week we were staring at the scale wondering “but I didn’t eat THAT much pumpkin pie!” The holiday season wreaks havoc on our formerly svelte bodies, and now we’re doing everything we can to shed that weight - fast.

quick meal. Don’t do it! Did you know that the Southern Style Crispy Chicken Sandwich packs a full 28 grams of fat? Not to mention that most prepared foods pack a day’s worth of sodium, causing you to retain more water than the Atlantic.

By: Alexa Cawley

We all know the basics: lots of water, fruits and vegetables, and limiting sugar as much as possible. But sticking to a harsh diet is about as easy as never eating again, and that’s not fun for anyone. We’ve compiled a list of tips and tricks that have really helped us, and we barely knew we were on a diet.

We’re all on a tight schedule. It’s NOT an excuse! Nowadays, barely anybody has the time to whip up a delicious, lowfat meal. The average workday is 8 hours, and that’s a really long time to go without eating a full meal. Snack on clean foods to nourish your body, not something from the vending machine in the hall. When you just can’t manage to get to your pantry, and McDonald’s is taunting you, try going for the Premium Grilled Chicken Club Sandwich, lightly containing just 150 calories, or to completely eliminate meat, try the delicious Fruit ‘n Yogurt Parfait with only 160 calories and enough protein to keep you satiated.

Always drink a glass of water before you eat anything. So often hunger and thirst are confused, and this is because both feelings trigger the same part of the brain. Most of us aren’t getting enough water in the first place, so chances are once we reach that 64 oz per day quota, we’ll feel much less hungry. Be conscious of what you’re eating. You’ve been at work all day. You’re starving. McDonald’s is so conveniently located, and you can’t wait to gobble down your favorite

things that age our beautiful skin. And we don’t want that happening! So load up on all the Vitamin A, C, and E snack foods you can. Baby carrots, sliced mangoes, a handful of almonds and clementines all fit effortlessly into next seasons Prada hobo. Also, vegetables have a ton of fiber making them virtually free foods on weight watchers, so eat up and enjoy! You’ll stay full, and you’re doing your whole body - inside and out - a huge favor. Take a multivitamin. There’s been a lot of controversy about multivitamins lately, mostly due to a faulty study that sent health fanatics into a panic. The bad news: Studies found that some people who take a vitamin daily believed themselves to be more or less invincible, and therefore were eating less of the plant-based foods that ward off disease and keep you trim. Think of your multivitamin as insurance. Women should be getting 25mg of vitamin B12 daily, a vital component of weight loss. B12 converts fat into energy, so if you’re not getting any into your diet, a multivitamin is a great way to alleviate this issue and get your body into motion again.

Be active. I wish I could tell you something different, but you’re just not going to fit into that beautiful, brand new Shoshanna bandeau sitting in your closet without moving your body a little more than you’re used to. Cardiovascular exercise is great and definitely kick-starts your metabolism, but most of us don’t have an extra hour and a half to go for a long jog. Try as much as you can to get cardiovascular exercise in on the weekends, but if you’re pressed for time on the weekdays, buy a pair of free hand weights (5 lbs at least) and do a few repetitions whenever you can. While your pasta (whole wheat, obviously) is boiling, while your coffee is percolating, or while you’re letting your great new antiaging moisturizer sink in. Lifting weights is a proven way to easily boost your metabolism, and who doesn’t want that? Allow yourself to splurge. If your favorite food in the entire world is chocolate, thinking you’re never going to eat it again is a sure-fire way for you to feel discouraged, and the more you hate your diet, the more likely you are to give up. So reward yourself for being the feisty, young, disciplined thing

you are! Every three pounds you lose, allow yourself to eat one of your favorite sweets. Eat only half the portion that you would have in the past, and keep the remainder in the freezer for your next three. Look at that, you’ve just lost six pounds! If this isn’t motivation enough, just check out the swimsuits on the runway. There’s always the old adage “nothing tastes as good as skinny feels,” and while it definitely shouldn’t be tattooed onto your body, there is some truth to it. Remember, cameras are everywhere these days, and for the amount of money you’ve just spent on that luxurious Vix Bia bikini, you don’t want to be the only thing in the picture looking less than spectacular. It’s only March, so you’ve got a few weeks to follow these tips and get in touch with your summer body. Prove to us, and the rest of the world, that you look as good as you feel! See you at the pool.<

Hotel Beaux Arts Miami’s Exclusive Masterpiece By: Dana Damato Read more at: StyleToMe.com

> I felt about one million nerves run wild through my body as I slammed on the breaks of my car and pounded on the horn. My heart was racing, palms sweating, and I was lost because I couldn’t quite pay attention to the Google Map directions on my iPhone. It is mid-afternoon on a Monday and downtown Miami’s traffic is, as usual, giving me anxiety. When I think about going to a quiet, private, and relaxing place to clear my mind, downtown Miami is certainly not the place I’d ever consider. However, I made it to my destination in one piece, the JW Marriott Marquis, and decided, why not give this place a try? I pulled into an exquisite entrance with gold revolving doors, wall fountains, statues, marble tiles, and a welcoming staff. The only twist is, I wasn’t staying at the JW Marriott Marquis, and this is where my story began. As a typical Marquis guest, when you enter the lobby you are immediately greeted by a friendly staff member at the front desk.You check in and make your way to your room.The only difference in my stay was that I was greeted by a staff member who was waiting for my arrival and escorted me to the 39th floor for a separate check in. I wasn’t exactly sure what I was getting into, but I went with it. As the elevator doors opened to the 39th floor I walked towards a private reception desk with two signs on each side of the walls that read, “Hotel Beaux Arts.” I immediately noticed the modern and art inspired décor of the quaint reception area that had a chic and sophisticated European flair. I came to realize that, not only was I about to spend two and a half days in downtown Miami, but I was in an exclusive and brand new luxury “hotel-within-a-hotel.” Located on the 38th, 39th, and 40th floors of the JW Marriott Marquis, the Hotel Beaux Arts is, in fact, an exclusive and ultra-modern private hotel created to inspire and awe. Upon my check in and my “Welcome” glass of Champagne, I was escorted to my 38th floor suite by two staff members who mentioned that this procedure is routine for new guests. After guests check in, they are escorted to their room to by a staff member who will demonstrate and explain all of the room amenities and cater to their questions, needs, and/or concerns to ensure that they are as comfortable as possible. Walking into my room was like walking into a contemporary and technologically savvy oasis. From the endless city and bay views, to the

“ ceiling-to-floor windows, to the motorized window drapery, to the Ban & Olufsen 55 inch LED flat-screen television, the remote controlled video and sound system installed in the room and much more that I was yet to discover. No wonder they provide a personal escort to show guests all of the goodies in this state of the art “smart room.” Each of the exclusive guestrooms and suites are designed with rich, dark hard wood floors, contemporary art embellishments, luxurious bedding, and my personal favorite, an illy white YI espresso machine (or in other words, illy Aritisto del Gusto Café). The bathrooms are spacious with imported Italian marble baths, a television embedded in bathroom mirror for TV watching while getting ready or taking a bath, and an abundance of Molton Brown bath amenities. Sound like hotel heaven? It definitely was, and beyond! The hook of this boutique hotel that you will rarely find in any other is the iPad. Each room is provided with an iPad that has a specific Hotel Beaux Arts app for guests to use for any and all of their requests. Not only can you surf the web (which is complimentary and unlimited) but you have the option to order room service, make dinner reservations, ring up house keeping, check out all local attractions, restaurants and directions, browse through the salon and spa’s menu of services, and much more. My favorite part was the room service function, which allows you to “see” the food before you order it, so you know exactly what you’re getting. An amenity that is both

convenient and innovative makes for a very satisfied guest. With so many exclusive features to the Hotel Beaux Arts, including it’s very own private lounge and dining enclave, this hidden getaway spot is the perfect place to escape the chaos of downtown Miami. As a matter of fact, I never really found a reason to escape the hotel, nor did I want to. The Hotel Beaux Arts shares 50,000 square feet of pure entertainment and recreation with the JW Marriott Marquis. Located on the 19th and 20th floors is where you will find endless activities that will keep you busy from day to night. So much that NBA teams and professional tennis players from around the country stay here for the 10,000 square foot NBA approved basketball arena that also transforms into a full tennis court. Just when I thought there couldn’t be anymore to this hotel, I turned the corner to find the Jim McLean Golf School that offers personal instruction, golf simulators, putting greens and Pro Shop, a virtual bowling alley, 3D Media Room, Rik Rak Salon & Spa, and a 4,500 square foot fitness center with all top-of-the-line equipment. I was amazed at all this hotel had to offer and that doesn’t include the pool, restaurants, and shops. All of this excitement makes for a very hungry guest, so the first evening of my stay I decided to dine at the hotel’s very own restaurant, “db Bistro Moderne,” an authentic French bistro located right near the JW Marriott Marquis lobby. The db Bistro Moderne offers a traditional French bistro menu

No wonder they provide a personal escort to show guests all of the goodies in this state of the art “smart room.”

with infused with contemporary American flavors prepared by Chef Jarrod Verbiak.The interior design of the restaurant reminded me of a fresh and modern New York City style bistro in a South Beach setting.With all of the delicious menu items, I had to go with the “Tuna TarTare” that so delicious with poached egg dressing, pommes gaufrettes, and watercress. It was so good I needed another one, but I moved on to the next dish, the “Ricotta Cavatelli” with porcini confit, pecorino, speck ham and walnuts, and some warm sugar-dusted madaleines with a cappuccino to end the night. With exceptional service, innovative technology, privacy, state-of-the-art room and hotel amenities, and minutes from Brickell, gorgeous south Florida beaches, malls and nightclubs, there is nothing that the Hotel Beaux Arts was missing to make the stay exquisite. Not only was the stay above and beyond in every aspect but also the experience is one that is unforgettable. The Hotel Beaux Arts isn’t just another Miami hotel. It is an exclusive lifestyle experience and world-class hotel destination that is unique in everyway. The luxurious lifestyle and welcoming hotel staff are ready and willing to make you their number one priority. The Hotel Beaux Arts awaits you.< For reservations: 1-888-236-2427 255 Biscayne Blvd Way Miami, FL 33131 www.Marriott.com/hotels/travel/miabx-hotelbeaux-arts-miami/

Gimme a Break! Spring-Cleaning Celebrity Style

By: Jennifer Marcus Read more at: StyleToMe.com

> Spring is around the corner! Flowers will be blooming, birds will be tweeting, and the weather (in most areas) will shift from the freezing temperatures of winter to warm and sunny days. It’s the kind of weather that makes us want to crack open all the windows and tackle some spring-cleaning. But over in Hollywood, celebrities have a different approach to spring-cleaning. They spring clean their relationships… and lately, there has been a lot of cleaning. Celebrity couples seem to bounce from relationship to relationship. They typically date for far less time than a “non-famous” couple, get married shortly after and then file for divorce before the ink is even dry. Pop sensation Katy Perry and British comedian Russell Brand got a jump on springcleaning and divorced in early February. The two started dating after the MTV Movie Awards in September 2009 and then were engaged by December of the same year. Ten months later, the two had a lavish and interesting wedding near the Ranthambore Tiger Sanctuary in Rajasthan, India with a traditional Hindu ceremony. It was an odd match

styletome.com

from the beginning with Perry growing up in a very strict Christian home and Brand being a former heroine attack and wild man, so many didn’t believe the relationship would work. Those people can now say, “I told ya so.” And not many can even compare to Kris Humphries and Kim Kardashian’s whirlwind romance. Can you even spring ‘clean’ your relationship, when there was hardly a relationship to begin with? The two called it quits in October but are having to clean all the baggage now with allegations flying about their 72-day marriage and if it was even real. The two met in October 2010 and were engaged, married and separated in one year. While Kardashian claims it was a situation where she got caught up in the fairytale of love and didn’t give the relationship enough time before committing into marriage, Humphries claims it was all a sham to make more money. It might have only lasted 72 days, but they will be cleaning this one up for a while. And then there is the Hollywood couples who seem to be going strong for years and


Heidi & Seal

Will & Jada

give us all hope and the belief in love, just to break up in the end citing irreconcilable differences. We never really find out why, but these hopefuls are hopeful no more as they are spring-cleaning their lengthy relationships. One couple no one expected to be springcleaning their relationship is supermodel Heidi Klum and soulful singer Seal. The two have always seemed to be perfectly in love. The two have renewed their vows every year since they were married in May 2005. Klum and Seal have four children together and have appeared blissfully happy and respectful of one another, so when reports came out of the split in late January, the world was shocked. Even during the split, the two are saying nothing but wonderful things about the other. So why the cleanup?

Smith filming a variety of movies and singing and songwriting for her metal band Wicked Wisdom. But somewhere along the way, trouble ensued and another one of Hollywood’s power couples has now fallen.

Another couple we were all rooting for was Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith with their star children Willow and Jaden. The 13-year marriage seemed strong and filled with love. They withstood years of Smith being on the road filming Blockbuster hits like I am Legend, Men In Black, The Pursuit of Happyness and Independence Day and Pinkett

Other relationships that are being cleaned are singer Avril Lavigne and reality TV semistar Brody Jenner, singer Sinead O’Connor and Barry Herridge (who were only married for 16 days), actress Debra Messing and husband of 11 years writer-producer Daniel Zelman, basketball star Kobe Bryant and wife of 10 years Vanessa, Demi Moore and

The longer time passes without springcleaning, the more junk collects. We wonder if that is true for Johnny Depp and girlfriend of 14 years Vanessa Paradis.While the couple hasn’t made many headlines in the past, the two are finding themselves on the covers now. They never decided to get married although they have two children, LilyRose Melody and John Christopher “Jack,” together. Depp once told a source that he didn’t need a ‘piece of paper’ to prove his commitment to Paradis. Well, the commitment for those two is about to be over.

Johnny & Vanessa Ashton Kutcher, and the couple who were together, unmarried, for 30 years, Jessica Lange and Sam Shepard. What these celebs can be thankful for is that even though they have the attention on them now, it will soon be on the next celebrity split. Hollywood relationships are so interesting to follow because you never know who is going to make it, and, as Heidi Klum would say, “Who is going to be out.” <

over in Hollywood, celebrities have a different approach to spring-cleaning. They spring clean their relationships… and lately, there has been a lot of cleaning.

People to Spring Clean from Your Life By: Jessica Sanchez Read more at: StyleToMe.com

> Cleaning out the closet is pretty easy for most people. Not me. I hang on to clothes the way a cat hangs on to catnip toys. If someone tries to pull them away (because, let’s face it, most of them are faded and don’t fit anymore) my claws come out to snag them in a desperate attempt to hold on to something that might, just might, come in handy some day; perhaps for an 80’s costume party? Because of this I have a walk-in closet full of clothes that I don’t ever wear but that represent the faded memories of skinnier times. In some boxes are merely the memories of poor decisions. So whenever you hear a woman exclaim that she “has nothing to wear!” as she swims out from the back of her closet through a sea of colorful dresses and tops, this is probably why. Most of those clothes are nothing more than stagnant reminders of the body she’s outgrown. Perhaps it is time to let go. Cleaning out the closet of your social life is kind of the same. Everyone has friends who don’t fit anymore but you keep them around because of memories of happier times. You can tell who these friends are because you feel compelled to offer a disclaimer before you introduce them to your new friends: “She was a lot of fun… before she started that job.” Or, “We were best friends in college but… he’s changed a bit.”

Disclaimers are for infomercials, credit cards and the first 10 rows of Shamu Stadium at Seaworld, not for the people in your life who are supposed to support you, uplift you, make you smile and help you move when you’re too broke to afford mov-

ers and you’re not dating anyone seriously enough to feel comfortable asking them to help you move. Just saying.

make/change plans to accommodate the one person who is too damn good for everything.

So take a look at the people with whom you surround yourself and think about why they’re still in your life, if the only answer is because you’ve “known them forever” then perhaps it’s time to spring clean.

The Eggshell - Almost every conversation with this person turns into a puzzling twist on that childhood game “Telephone.” You have to really watch what you say because, as you’ve probably learned the hard way, your words will get twisted and sliced more times than Joan Rivers. They‘ll take something small told to them and leave a trail of white lies that they expand on. You can say something as simple as, “I‘m usually too tired after work,” and it will somehow get translated into, “My job makes me feel like I‘m drowning in a hopeless pit of despair!” Which is what they’ll tell anyone who asks about you. Put a preemptive end to any false rumors by putting an end to these kinds of friendships.

The Vortex of Negativity - This person has an uncanny knack for only seeing the thorns on a rose and they use it to subtly convince you that the things you like and enjoy are pointless, stupid or tacky. But don’t take it personally, they also think their job, their boss, their neighbors, the new restaurant, the latest movie, Disneyworld and tiny kittens with cute button noses are pointless, stupid or tacky. Their negativity can often be sarcastic and humorous, which is why at first it’s unassuming, but be careful, the last thing you want is to start seeing the world through the murky water of their half-empty glass. Being a positive person starts with surrounding yourself with positive people. The Elitist - This person spews a volcano of judgment that is very similar to the Vortex of Negativity only it erupts from their overwhelming sense of self-worth. You have to marvel at their inability to understand that everyone is not, in fact, yearning for their approval. Whether they’re sneering at people who wear white after Labor Day, rolling their eyes at your newest love interest, or lifting an eyebrow at the restaurant you suggested you’ll see how much simpler life can be when you don’t have to always

The Vampire - Since you make more money than them they naturally think you should always pick up the check. Or maybe you’re a great listener so they’re always unleashing a torrent of woes on you. Whether they’re draining you financially or emotionally you can always tell who these friends are because you treat their phone calls and text messages like rental movies, it’s a chore to return them but it must be done. When you call or hang out with them you have to mentally prepare yourself for something that will surely test your patience or wear down your nerves. You’ll eventually start avoiding them all together anyway so why not do it now? <

Indian Flavor DC Design launches India’s first ever Supercar- DC Avanti Read more at: StyleToMe.com

> DC Design, India’s premier automotive design firm has taken a step beyond what it is known and revered for, with its reveal at Auto Expo today, of what is the country’s first ever sports car, the sleekly styled and superbly configured DC Avanti. What makes this a special occasion is that the Avanti is not just a full road worthy prototype but one with production firmly pencilled in! DC intends to go the way of so many Italian carrozzerias (like Bertone, Ghia, Pininfarina and Stola to name four) who not only styled, designed and engineered smashing sports cars but also went on to make them in limited production runs for sale to the general public. DC will be doing just that with the Avanti

styletome.com

which is being readied for a production run beginning 2013 and none other than the legendary India cine genius and informed motoring buff Amitabh Bachchan was on hand to take the wraps off this glorious rolling sculpture. While DC has done some amazing work over the past decade including prototypes for so many of the world’s big name car manufacturers, he has never done a production run of any of his designs, concentrating on one-offs. All that is destined to change with the DC Avanti, a move that adds another dimension to the multi-faceted design and engineering capability that DC Design has built up at its Pune works! Speaking at the launch of the project very dear to his heart (and which he had nurtured for so many years), Dilip Chhabria, the guiding tour-de-force at DC Design said,


toys

“We are extremely ecstatic to present the DC Avanti today and it is a manifestation of not just the burgeoning interest in high end sports cars but also as a calling card for our own capabilities which have now progressed from mere styling in the early days to full prototyping and bespoke one-off manufacturing. Every country which has written its name in the pantheon of automobile manufacturing has invariably distinguished itself with sports cars by its own nationals and I thought that India rightly needs to be in this exclusive club.”

are on par with a larger 3.0-litre engine. Max power will be 240bhp at 5500rpm with a massive 366 Nm of torque developed at 3500rpm helping give it both tractability and thrust. If that is not all, the latest electronics will also help deliver strong on the fuel efficiency front as well. Also the engine and its ancillaries are all Euro 4 & 5 compliant already meaning it would be right even for the export markets but the good thing is that it could also be taken further to the incoming Euro 6 legislation with a slight change in the engine mapping characteristics.

“The Indian market for high end automobiles is on a steep uphill curve as witnessed year-on-year and our focus is at the top end of this rarified niche. The design is completely our very own as is the engineering and also the production process. Type approval and on-road tests would follow soon and we intend to simultaneously set up an all new facility at Talegaon near Pune to build this vehicle,” said Dilip.

Handling all that power and torque from the mid-mounted four-cylinder engine is a six-speed manual gearbox. Again sourced from the Ford Europe parts bin, this transmission is robust and reliable and does all it is tasked with. There will also be another transmission option for those who seek an even higher technological plane with a sixspeed dual clutch PowerShift unit.

“We intend to produce 300 units of the Avanti in 2013-2014 and if all goes well we could ramp up production to go into four figures per annum. Till now DC Design was noted for its design and customization but then we added complete engineering and prototyping to our roster of services and working for the world’s biggest names helped us understand and add to our expertise,” added Dilip. “The Avanti is an ongoing culmination of all that we have learnt and we intend to give a sports car to a select new emerging breed of car buyers who value good taste without compromising on performance and who don’t need to spend a fortune on making the adrenaline flow.” He further added. The Avanti supercar doesn’t reinvent the wheel in the basic process of manufacturing a high tech sports car because in time honoured specialist car production DC Design will be using proprietary parts from various car makers, especially in the areas of drivetrain and suspension. The Avanti would be powered by a specially tuned Ford EcoBoost 2.0-litre four-cylinder, dohc, 16-valve engine. This unit not only features turbocharging with direct injection but also features VVT (variable valve timing) and this helps it to dish out power and torque, which normally

The Avanti will have a light weight but very strong spaceframe chassis using a mix of square, rectangular and round sections to get the best strength and rigidity across the dynamic spectrum. Suspension is in time honoured sports car fashion with unequal length wishbones all around working in conjunction with coil over shock absorbers. Agile, quick and ultra-responsive, the Avanti promises performance and visual erotica at a cost to quality proposition that will be second to none. Hydraulically assisted rack and pinion steering gear will be standard fitment.

::

eter ventilated disc brakes with grippy AP Racing calipers come as OE fitment. The Avanti’s low slung silhouette is pure excitement and is unlike any seen from an Asian automotive entity. Sporting a combination of pleasingly complex concave and convex surfaces to deliver great form, the Avanti is fast standing still with its rippling muscles akin to a wild animal waiting to spring onto its prey. Animalistic yet aesthetic in its essence but replete with fine craftsmanship across the entire vehicle, the Avanti can more than hold its own in its class. DC has already put in place a unique and dedicated self-owned and managed sales and service network in five major metros in the country (Delhi, Mumbai, Pune, Chennai and Hyderabad) and this would only be honed to a fine pitch by the time the Avanti production commences. An additional four outlets would also be opened in the course of 2012. Bookings, on a first-come-first-served-basis will open soon, immediately after Auto Expo 2012 with deliveries scheduled from the last quarter of calendar 2013. The big story doesn’t end here, the feel good theme continuing on the price front as well. At Rs. 30 lakhs ex-showroom, the Avanti would be a stunner in more ways than one and a smile inducer cum big name basher made in India. More announcements on the Avanti and its bespoke customization to owners’s trim and equipment preferences would follow soon.<

Specialists in safety engineering which include the likes of Bosch would be lending their might in developing the latest generation ABS brake systems and SRS air bag technology for the Avanti; ride and handling would be perfected by global experts in this realm and overall body and trim plus final assembly would be done at DC Design’s all new production facility coming up at Talegaon near Pune. The Avanti will be electronically limited to 250km/h and will ride on 19-inch tyres all round. Footwear on the front wheels would be of size 255/3519 while 295/30-19-sized rubber would do duty at the rear. Helping safety and control given the max velocity and acceleration the Avanti would pack in, large 330mm diam-

> With a roster of who’s who in Orlando, Wyndham Grand Orlando Resort Bonnet Creek’s grand opening gala was held on January 27th kicking off 2012 with Orlando’s most influential players and most inspiring families. The celebration included tours of the beautiful new property, tastings from the resort’s three amazing restaurants, which went all out for this grand event. Members of Wyndham Worldwide, including Eric Danziger, president and chief executive officer and John Green, brand senior vice president and the hotel’s general manager, Jurgen Schafers proudly joined in the festivities. The event also benefited the Starlight Children’s Foundation, a Wyndham

Hotel Group’s signature charity that is dedicated to improving the quality of life for children around the globe with chronic and life-threatening illnesses and life-altering injuries. The exotic dreams of every car enthusiast were fulfilled the weekend of February 4th as dozens of luxury automobiles sat with their doors spread and their hoods open just begging to be leered at. The 8th Annual “Cars for the Cure” Heathrow automotive festival kicked off with a bang (or perhaps that was a backfire) at the Colonial Town Park in Lake Mary. This event has become the epitome of luxury car shows. Some of

the most powerful and highly-tuned cars from around the world were set against the backdrop of Colonial Town Park’s quaint shops and awesome restaurants, making it a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon.That combined with the warm Florida weather brought out roughly 15,000 spectators, and to date has raised nearly $100,000 for the American Lung Association. The 2012 Best of Show award went to Nelson Cambata for his Bugatti Veyron.

were served on delicate china at vibrantly decorated tables. The atmosphere was an almost surreal take on Alice in Wonderland with WKMG Local 6 anchor Lauren Rowe taking center stage as the emcee. High Tea and Hats raises tens of thousands of dollars every year for services that help low-income or frail seniors in Central Florida maintain their independence. I’m sure it also pleases hat companies that made hats they never thought anyone would actually buy.

On the evening of February 4th more than 100 guests sat down for what was one of the most exquisite and delectable dinners ever served up at Norman’s Restaurant in the Ritz-Carlton, Grande Lakes. The five-course dinner included ice chilled, fresh Wianno Oysters Duo in flavorful horseradish foam and a Caraway Mustard Crusted Venison that practically melted in your mouth. An amazingly rich Chocolate Mousse presented in a Grand Marnier Crème topped it off. It is easy to see why legendary Chef Norman Van Aken is known around the world as the “Founding Father of New World Cuisine.” To make the night even more perfect each course came with a wine from Hartford Family Wines that was paired perfectly by Master Sommelier John Blazon. But dinner at Norman’s isn’t just about the food; it’s about the experience. Every table in the room is considered VIP seating and that’s how guests are always treated. Yusuf Yildiz, GM and Wine Director of Norman’s has an impressive penchant for remembering names and faces and caters to every guest like they are long-time family friends.

February 18th showcased Orlando’s lavish and ever-growing art community. The Mennello family name is synonymous with a culture of mannered extravagance among Orlando’s high society and this was made apparent once again when the Friends of the Mennello presented their annual gala to benefit The Mennello Museum. It took place at the Ritz-Carlton Orlando. Their lavish entertaining is legendary in Central Florida, and paintings donated from their extensive collection hang in museums throughout the region.

On February 12th the ultimate afternoon tea party took place at the Peabody Orlando. At the 5th Annual High Tea and Hats event nearly 400 people donned their silliest - ahem, I mean, their most stylish hats and tipped them to Seniors First, Inc. This event sets the standard as far as luxury tea parties go. Fragrant teas and moist crumpets

On February 19th hundreds of brides-to-be and weary bridesmaids descended on Park Avenue in Winter Park for an estrogenfueled day of oohing and ahhing over things that the average wedding guest doesn’t even notice, like napkins. Be that as it may, these small details have the potential to ruin an entire wedding worth more than the average home, which is why the Winter Park Bridal Stroll is a very popular event. Dozens of vendors that cater to the kind of wedding favors you never knew existed but now can’t live without lined Park Avenue. It was a wonderful one-stop-shop for any sane bride looking to make the weddingplanning process simple and stress-free. Too bad there’s no such thing as a sane bride.

Downtown Orlando was a cornucopia of see-and-be-seen activity as the NBA All-Star Weekend got underway. Lebron James and Floyd Mayweather took over the Ball Room on Church Street and Sean “Diddy” Combs threw down at the Cheyenne Saloon. But one of the most unique events downtown took place at The Exchange Building and combined a never-seen-before fusion of art and basketball, appropriately titled, “The Art of Basketball.” The exhibition was created by the Public Works Department and curated by Billi Kid. It showcased exclusive works of art that tapped into the talent of leading street and graffiti artists who brought the mystique of urban art to the basketball court - literally; each piece was re-imagined from a section of the 2011 NBA All-Star Game basketball court. Premier Beverage Company of Florida hosted the party and treated guests to an evening of “Jocktails” on Friday, meaning NBA players worked as bartenders and served up drinks (it’s good to know they have something to fall back on if there’s ever another lockout).The proceeds from the three-day celebration went to the Irie Foundation, an organization founded by music man DJ Irie that encourages at-risk youth to explore the art world through after-school programs and scholarships.

Tom O’Brien ®

Realtor , ALHS, CDPE Watson Realty, Heathrow Read more at: StyleToMe.com

> After years of explosive steady growth in Central Florida, few Real Estate sales people anticipated the tremendous challenges the market would confront after 2006. Even fewer Real Estate Agents come equipped with a background sufficiently diverse with the wealth of business experience needed to manage through such a crisis for the benefit of their customers. After the Real Estate “crisis” of the past five years, this business has been transformed forever. With the rapid rise and evolution of Social Media and the emergence of multiple “on-line” Real Estate search engines, today, merely putting up a “For Sale” sign, listing a property in the MLS, and offering a little “in-print” advertising yield little or no success. Real Estate sales have been transformed forever, and like any other business, adaptation to change has become a mandate for survival. After decades of running and then selling his own business with annual sales upward of $25 Million, in 2000 Tom O’Brien and his wife Nancy relocated to the picturesque Village of Lake Forest, Illinois. Nancy recalls “Tom and I had both grown up in New Jersey and had always been reluctant to move our kids, but once they were grown up and Tom was offered the position of Vice President for the world’s # 2 Cardiac Device Manufacturer for the 10 Midwest States, we decided moving to the Chicago area might be an adventure- so we moved!” Two years later, in 2002, having established a reputation as an agent for change, Tom was again asked to re-locate, this time to

Florida, and tasked with turning around the Southeast Area which had perennially been the Company’s weakest U. S. market. (Tom’s own personal experiences with those two “Corporate Relocations” would later prove invaluable in helping future customers deal with the excitement and anxiety of “Relocation.”) That turn-around came quickly! As Vice President with over 150 sales and technical direct reports, Tom’s area soon was generating nearly $200 Million in annual revenue and within a year was ranked the Number 1 area in the Country establishing an unrivaled streak of similar top performances over the next five years! Shortly thereafter, having spent decades in Medical Sales, but always on the lookout for new opportunities,Tom immersed himself in identifying a “second career”. “Since I was a child, my parents had always stressed the value of Real Estate as a solid investment, ‘they aren’t making it anymore!’ my Dad would like to say; but now with the downturn in the market, I found I had become the proud owner of several pieces of deflated “once solid” investments!” A thoughtful and easy going man, not the sales personality you would expect, Tom notes “because of the Real Estate downturn, by default, at this point in my life I gravitated toward Real Estate to minimize my own personal exposure to risk. Fortunately, during my tenure as an Officer of a Fortune 500 Company, my daily interactions in the Executive Suites of both external and internal CEOs, CFOs, and COOs had sharpened my business skills, honed my negotiation skills, and provided

me with the wealth of business experiences and unparalleled skill set enabling me to excel in the field of my choice.” Professionally, Tom has earned the coveted Real Estate designations of Certified International Property Specialist, Accredited Luxury Home Specialist, and wanting to fully understand the market in which we find ourselves, Certified Distressed Property Expert and Foreclosure Specialist. He also serves on the Grievance Committee for the Orlando Regional Realtors Association which is tasked with reviewing and making recommendations on allegations of violations against the Realtors’ Code of Ethics. On a personal note, a lifetime member of the National Association of Eagle Scouts, Tom enjoys any and all Outdoor activities.

The IRS & Tax Law by Mark L. Horwitz > The IRS contends that the tax system is voluntary however, it prosecutes those who intentionally do not pay taxes.

An IRS criminal investigator is required to identify himself when interviewing a person under criminal investigation and to tell that person of their right to have an attorney present and that anything said may be used in a criminal case.

The Law Offices of Mark L. Horwitz - A Professional Association

While the amount of tax due is part of a criminal investigation, it is not the primary factor. The criminal investigatorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s primary purpose is to determine if criminal charges can be filed.

17 E. Pine St. Orlando, FL 32801 407-843-7733 www.mlhorwitzlaw.com mark@mlhorwitzlaw.com

A person often learns of a criminal tax investigation when investigators appear without an appointment for an interview. The

investigators routinely plan the questions after doing a preliminary investigation. Often the unannounced visit will result in an interview without the benefit of having an attorney present. Any mistake or mis-recollection of facts can be interpreted as an intentional false statement which will factor prominently in the governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s contention that the taxpayer acted willfully to evade tax laws. Mistakes or perceived lies increase the chance of criminal prosecution. When an individual speaks with an investigator the following may happen: the person may make a mistake when questioned about events that occurred years previously; the investigator may not understand the answers correctly or may make a mistake in taking

notes; or on rare occasions, an investigator may falsify the report. It is interesting to note that the IRS investigators do not usually record the interviews. While there may be various reasons for not recording an interview, one reason is that at a trial, a defendant will be faced with what the investigator claims was said, rather than what was actually said and recorded. The law recognizes that anyone dealing with the IRS has the right to an attorney. Dealing directly with the IRS without a lawyer experienced in criminal tax matters poses significant risks that can result in the increased likelihood of criminal charges and may increase the risk of losing oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s freedom.<

Spring Break Isn’t Just for the Kids By: Gary C. Sain President and CEO, Visit Orlando Read more at: StyleToMe.com

> We tend to think of spring break as an option only for school-age children and college kids. But I’m willing to bet most adults would also appreciate a getaway during these warm and sunny months, albeit one that appeals more to our sensibilities. Meaning fun and sophisticated options that allows you to relax, recharge or simply to just let off some steam. Not surprising, in Orlando you can experience just about any activity your heart desires without the hassles — and additional expense — of jumping on a plane. Plan a long weekend escape or take the week off at one of the numerous luxury hotels in Central Florida. Like Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa at the Walt Disney World Resort. You’ll experience the Victorian elegance of a forgotten era, including the AAA Five Diamond-winning Victoria & Albert’s restaurant. The resort provides a

Gary Sain

sunshiny vibe with a white-sand beach and two pools, and you can even rent a 52-foot yacht for the ultimate in privacy. But maybe you just need an intensive relaxation session. Something that will rejuvenate both mind and body, allowing you to emerge ready to take on the world. I would suggest spending a few hours at the Mandara Spa, which mixes Balinese and Indonesian healing traditions with North American influences.The spa, located within the Loews Portofino Bay Hotel at Universal Orlando Resort, offers a variety of unique treatments including the signature Mandara Four Hands Massage and the Balinese Massage. Any or all of these stress reducers are highly recommended. For some, a round of golf is all it takes to disconnect from the daily grind and enjoy one of life’s most challenging pleasures. While Orlando is home to more than 170 courses, the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club Orlando, Grande Lakes is one of our premier examples of style and service. Designed by two-time British Open Champion Greg Norman, it blends water hazards, strategic bunker placement and demanding greens in an atmosphere reminiscent of a private course. The Caddie Concierge program — which provides expert attendants who offer course strategy, place food orders and even make dinner reservations — is a nice option.

Yet others need a bit more of an adrenaline charge to really feel free and completely disconnected from responsibility. If you selfidentify, then consider going for a thrilling 50-mph ride on European-style, electricpowered karts at Orlando Grand Prix. The indoor 70,000-square-foot facility includes a quarter-mile racetrack as well as a separate drift track. You can choose from a variety of races. And groups of friends or business associates are welcomed to come and test their skills. However, there are those traditionalists that equate spring break with the beach. Period. For these sun-and-sand types, there are numerous beaches within an hour’s drive east of Orlando, including Daytona, Cocoa and New Smyrna. Or you could check out the state’s west coast beaches in St. Petersburg and the aptly named Clearwater. And if it’s the arts that get your passions running during the spring, a must-see is the 53rd Annual Winter Park Sidewalk Art Festival on March 16–18. More than 225 artists from around the world participate in this juried show.The three-day event also features great jazz and eclectic food, all within the quaint surrounds of Central Park on Park Avenue in Winter Park.<

Don‘t Miss the beat

> Orlando is in for quite an intense night of music on March 31; one of the longest and strongest running bands, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, is set to take center stage at our very own Amway Center at 8:00pm. The rock sound with its hints of punk music as well as hip hop will have the crowd moving and singing right along. Business men in Armani, housewives with their old band T-shirts, college students from the classes of ‘83-‘12 will all enjoy the vibe of this truly rockin’ band. Since the creation of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, realigning has commenced, some changes have been made, though the same goal has remained constant: create good music. With a long history, such as these rockers have had, it should come as no surprise that it’s been a ride like no other.

Don’t Miss the Beat... … of the Red Hot Chili Peppers By: Megan Hyde Read more at: StyleToMe.com

In the early 1980s a few high school buddies decided it was time to form the band they dreamed of being. Anthony Kiedis, Hillel Slovak, a fellow name Flea and a drummer named Jack Irons began their legacies. Improvisation and devotion incredibly present caught on among music fans. What was to be one show initially became many once the crowd heard what these guys had to sing, rap and break out on the guitar and drums. By 1984 the Chili Peppers were signed and on their way to success. Unfortunately not a lot of things are easy and plans don’t stay intact. Due to other musical obligations, Hillel Slovak and Jack Irons said farewell to Anthony and Flea. As timing would have it, the band was building a strong fan base primarily through MTV and it was not ideal to have to mix up what was just becoming known to followers. Auditions were held; new members joined the ranks and on went the journey for the Red Hot Chili Peppers. A few guys, including both Slovak and Irons rejoined at different times because it was just too much talent not to. Overall, a handful of great musicians have been associated with the Red Hot Chili Peppers and each brought something different and captivating to those listening. Riding the waves of good and bad success is a given for a career in entertainment.These guys know that. Despite random hardships here and there, every name ever affiliated with the RHCP gave their all and their best towards the words, the notes, and the collaboration. The intense level of devotion from each member is resulting in one of the highest tributes

a musician can earn. In December 2011, the Red Hot Chili Peppers received word they are to be inducted into the Class of 2012 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Previously in the running for this honor a couple times prior, this is a super sweet achievement. At present the band is set for another world tour. Longest running members Anthony Kiedis and Flea, Chad Smith who isn’t far behind them having joined in 1989, and Josh Kliffhoffer who got aboard in 2009, will take the stage. With that unchanging, never wavering, psychedelic, rock & roll, funk sound ever alive, the band is embarking, igniting excitement as if it was the first time anyone heard of them. Devotees did not even flinch when the guys had to reschedule a few dates due to Anthony Kiedis foot surgery. Multiple injuries over a lengthy period of time made this unavoidable. The crowd will still be there; they just have more time to prepare for the phenomenal show these Hall of Famers are bound to put on.

Visiting Orlando? Scan this with your Smartphone.

With a long history, such as these rockers have had, it should come as no surprise that it’s been a ride like no other.

The connection between the band is very much in sync and fans are loving them more than ever. They have over 15 million Facebook likes, numerous smart phone applications, countless memorabilia, and their show happening in The City Beautiful- Orlando is sold out! Not to mention countless other stops are as well. There is something to be said for the length, strength and consistency of the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Despite a handful of creative restructuring of members since its conception, the music associated with the Red Hot Chili Peppers stays exactly the same: GREAT.That is why they have remained a favorite, exhilarating, and classic band of contributors to the art of music. <

Wealth management (it’s about your future...) > In today’s volatile world economy, this term has suddenly taken on new meaning to many of us, especially those who are either new entrants into the world of retirement or those planning to do so in the near term. Unfortunately, many have seen huge portions of their nest eggs disappear after years of paying their dues by ‘toiling in the fields’ and building a financial asset base. We constantly hear that Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid are all going broke and our complacency toward assuming our government would never let us down has really thrown us a curve. Bank savings interest rates are next to “0” so we can no longer look to monetary appreciation from that sector; the Stock Market has become nothing more than a roller coaster, with huge daily stock price swings testing our cardiovascular well-being. The fact is that our basic layman’s knowledge in executing our individual financial planning objective no longer holds water... Despite all that has occurred, we still need to figure a way to survive and provide for whatever future it is we have remaining and if we’re smart we will look to the experts to help us manage our finances...we just do not know enough of the many options that are out there which can be applied to our specific economic needs. We must first determine our objectives. What is it we wish to accomplish? For some, it might be funding a child’s education; others may need to address retirement planning and the security of a fixed income annuity; still others can be concerned with the ramifications of tax law as it applies to income and estate planning; higher risk takers might be seeking aggressive growth opportunities in bonds, equities and/or emerging market investments. It goes on and on. In this issue we feature a select group of professional financial planners and all are well versed and educated in every aspect of Wealth Management. Please do your homework to ensure that whomever you choose to help plan your financial future is someone with a proven track record and who will give you the personal attention required for making you feel protected and secure.<

For the past 10+ years the traditional stock and bond investment portfolio has not worked for investors. The risks have far outweighed the returns. For people in retirement or close to retirement the results have been exceptionally disappointing. Large endowments such as Harvard, Yale, Stanford and other Ivy League Institutions have successfully used a different strategy to significantly outperform the stock market and reduce risk over the past 1, 3, 5, 10 and 20 year periods. The Endowment Model Strategy utilizes different investments and asset classes that are not connected to the stock market. This more versatile approach has proven to maximize returns and reduce risk while keeping the individual investor’s retirement goals on track. These types of investments have been largely unavailable to the individual investor until recently. The individual

Special Promotional Feature

investor has had limited investment choices, been making decisions on old and outdated information and had been mostly relegated to the old stock and bond model. Now, the individual investor can get access to institutional quality assets that are not necessarily connected to the stock market. They can now make better decisions with new and current information to take advantage of better opportunities. As Endowment Model Strategy experts, Scott and Tom create investment and retirement plans for clients that take advantage of these opportunities. YOUR SUCCESS IS OUR SUCCESS

Retirement represents a major financial transition in life. It is not unusual for someone retiring at age 65 to live to age 90 or even longer. You should consider that you may need your nest egg to potentially last 25 to 30 years. Nothing will have a greater impact on the quality and success of your retirement plan than choosing the right advisor. It is important for your financial professional to have a complete overview of your financial picture. The right advisor needs to understand how your retirement assets are integrated and have the ability to manage your income taxes, life and long term care insurance and estate planning. The advisory team at Cramer & Rauchegger focuses on clients who are retired or close to retirement. Scott and Tom are true specialists and professionals. The advisory team of Cramer & Rauchegger creates and implements individualized retirement plans incorporating income needs, estate planning goals, risk tolerance and tax strategies. The advisory team has built a successful practice that is built on the strong foundation of long term personal relationships. “Our clients are our family and our greatest advocates. Their success is our success!” Scott was recently featured on the Bloomberg TV show “Taking Stock” to speak about the very strategies espoused in this article.

> In some respects, Karen Flynn is a lot like other successful financial advisors. She serves a variety of professional clients. She has two grown children. And she likes to snow ski and scuba dive. But for many local business leaders, that’s where the similarities end. To Orlando’s movers and shakers, Karen Flynn is a welcome bit of calm in an otherwise stormy financial world. “I specialize in working with business owners,” says Flynn. “I want to help them avoid mistakes and anticipate future needs to make their wealth work for them.” Business owners look to Flynn to help them manage various investment vehicles in their company’s qualified plans, such as defined benefit, 401(k) and profit-sharing plans. She works hard to help her clients navigate the complex conditions that may affect their plans’ effectiveness. After all, she’s serving a larger purpose. Not only does she serve the business owner, but she has to consider the financial well-being of everyone connected to the plans.

“My clients are busy, successful business owners who don’t have the time for the intricacies of investing, but have fiduciary liability,” says Flynn. Flynn believes that managing retirement assets was a good fit for her conservative nature. It’s her pragmatic approach to investing that has served her clients so well – an approach long cultivated over her entire career. Flynn is a registered investment advisor and a Certified Financial

Planner™ (CFP®) professional. But even earlier in her career, as a trained paralegal, she learned the importance of careful planning and thoughtful decision-making. “I’ve always wanted to make a difference,” says Flynn. To help make the greatest difference she can, Flynn seeks partnerships with people she can trust. For example, when she advises her business-owner clients on issues such as family succession or exit planning, she turns to Pension Investors Corporation of Orlando. The independent company specializes in retirement plan services and helps to keep her clients compliant with all ERISA regulatory requirements. Using her own expertise and the experience of trusted partners, Flynn helps growing businesses leverage a generation of knowledge to weather their financial journey. “I want my clients to enjoy confidence, control and independence,” says Flynn. When Flynn isn’t tending to her clients’ well-being at the office, she’s probably checking on the well-being of her two grandchildren, Sophie and Alex. She also shares her time with local not-for-profit initiatives including, most recently, getting “locked up” at the 2011 Lock-Up to benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association.< The Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards, Inc., owns the certification marks above, which it awards to individuals who successfully complete initial and ongoing certification requirements.

> Wealth Management professional Tony Keena takes it personally.The “it” in this case is a client base that includes high net worth business owners and executives as well as entertainers and professional sports professionals. Keena, a partner in the respected Altamonte Springs financial consulting firm of Estate & Business Planning Group has, since 1995, been engaged in helping his clients understand the challenges of managing, growing and preserving their financial assets. “Some of my clients are well known individuals who prefer not to be treated like celebrities,” Tony says, “but as people who, while they have financial goals and objectives, also have families to protect, dreams to be realized and values they hold dear. My job is to see and help the individual behind the famous face.” Keena, a Wisconsin native who did military service in the Orlando area and returned after college, bringing with him a background in finance and economics, said he initially engages new clients in a personal conversation about them as individuals. When the conversation gets around to their financial goals and objectives, he discusses issues like safety, liquidity and risk. During early discussions, Tony focuses on four key areas: Wealth Management – customizing a comprehensive plan that coordinates their investments, tax minimization and insurance strategies. Trust Management – helping clients maintain wealth over a lifetime and leave a legacy for future generations. Estate & Business Planning Group 305 Douglas Ave. Altamonte Springs, FL 32714 Office 407-389-1122 Tkeena@estateandbusiness.net

Asset Protection – assisting clients in protecting assets from loss due to unnecessary income taxes and unforeseen misfortunes such as disability or long-term illness. Retirement planning is also discussed.

Estate Planning – allowing clients to pass their assets to whom they want, and the way they want, while minimizing estate taxes. Along the strategies for estate planning is charitable gifting. Tony says that the more wealth a person accumulates, the more options, obstacles and challenges they face. While your financial life remains complex, a skilled financial advisor can greatly simplify the management of it. Regarded as an authority in the wealth management industry, Keena was recognized for his leadership last year when he was named a Five Star Wealth Manager Professional.The award is based on the results of a survey of 93,000 high net worth households and 2,000 financial services professionals in the Central Florida area. Survey recipients were asked to evaluate wealth managers they knew through personal experience, and to evaluate them based on certain criteria. Only wealth managers with five or more years of experience were considered. When Tony and a new client are first getting to know each other on a personal level, it’s not surprising if the subject of sports cars and racing is mentioned. Tony’s sports clients include both drivers and collectors of rare cars, and his vacations are often timed to coincide with the big car shows around the country.

John Pinkley/Achievement Financial Group of Raymond James ® Read more at: StyleToMe.com

> What is your style? Whether it’s fashion or finance, we all have our own style. And when it comes to your money, finding an investment approach that fits you is very important. Certainly if the last 10 years or so have taught us anything about investing, it’s that “set it and forget it” doesn’t work. The variables that move investment markets one way or another change faster than ever so a nimble and decisive strategy is a must in today’s environment. At the Achievement Financial Group of Raymond James, we recognize that it’s difficult at best and impossible at worst to accurately predict when and why investment markets do what they do. So instead of guessing and hoping for the best, we focus on what direction various markets seem to be moving in and set our investment mix accordingly.

John E. Pinkley, CFP®,CLU® CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional Chartered Life Underwriter Associate Vice President, Investments

The investment “ingredients” we use include six broad asset classes: • Domestic Equities (U.S. stocks) • International Equities (developed and emerging) • Fixed Income • Commodities • Foreign Currencies • Cash At any given time, the fundamental forces of “supply and demand” will move these asset classes up or down. We determine how strong demand is for each asset class relative to the others and allocate investment dollars from strongest to weakest. As demand ebbs and flows, we adjust the investment mix to reflect the new strength and weakness rankings.

Of course, we recognize that this investment style isn’t for everyone. To help us determine who would be a good fit, we begin with a thorough discussion about goals, objectives, experience, time horizons and resources.

Past performance is not indicative of future results. Investing always involves risk and you may incur a profit or loss. No investment strategy can guarantee success. International investing involves additional risks such as currency fluctuations, differing financial accounting standards, and possible political and economic instability. These risks are greater in emerging markets. Commodities are generally considered speculative because of the significant potential for investment loss. Commodities are volatile investments and should only form a small part of a diversified portfolio. There may be sharp price fluctuations even during periods when prices overall are rising.

Synergy Financial Solutions Common Sense Read more at: StyleToMe.com

> OSM – What is common sense investing? SFS – Common sense says that if you stop losing money you can create and preserve wealth. If you have holes in your financial bucket, it will never get full no matter how much money you pour in there. If you have even a small leak in your gas tank (investment losses, paying interest and fees) and you have to continually stop and pay tolls (taxes), will you ever reach your destination? We all finance things. If you can keep 90% of those finance costs in your savings account, how much wealthier would you be? Even if you pay cash you are still financing. By paying cash you interrupt the compounding cycle and forfeit earnings on those dollars. You are forcing your dollars to work that much harder because they have to start over at zero again and again, every time you take money out to buy something. If you never stop earning on your investment how much wealthier would you be? OSM – Why isn’t everyone doing this? SFS – It is easy to miss something you are not looking for. We are taught that government sponsored retirement plans like 401k’s and IRA’s are the best way to save for retirement because they defer taxes. The reality is that they only delay the tax and more importantly, the tax calculation. For example if you put $1 in your 401k or IRA and it grew to $5 you will pay taxes at an unknown and probably higher tax rate on the $5, not your original $1 investment. You will repay all the taxes you saved in the first 3-5 years that you begin taking distributions. We ask why anyone would sign up for that plan once they understand the math.

The same dollar doubled every year for 20 years but taxed each year at 27% for this example, will only grow to $57,665. No matter the tax rate, it is quite obvious how detrimental taxes are to wealth creation. OSM – Who can benefit from your plan? SFS – We do not know anyone who would intentionally invest even $1 in a plan that would result in a loss or cost them extra taxes. We show our clients a safer, more efficient way to reach their goals. Common sense investing principles are universal. They work for young married couples, business owners, single parents, folks in their 50’s and 60’s, seniors and everyone in between. OSM – Any closing thoughts for our readers? SFS – Our plan in a nutshell: • Never pay interest on purchases to 3rd party – keep it in house • Never forfeit interest earnings by paying cash and continually restarting the com pounding cycle • Never pay a penny more in taxes than is absolutely necessary • Reduce or eliminate investment losses by using strategies that guarantee growth and principal protection Meet the common sense investment girls; Nina K Avery, CFP ®, Certified Financial Planner ™ professional, director of planning and investments and founding partner of SFS. Nina has been in the financial services industry for fifteen years.  In that time she has worked for big a Wall Street firm and a smaller regional firm and bank.  Krista Inochovsky, director of marketing and business development, founding partner of SFS and full time mom.

OSM – Why do you focus on taxation?

SFS – Taxation is the most misunderstood and the biggest destroyer of wealth. Understanding taxation enables you to keep more of your money. For example, $1 doubled every year for 20 years that is never taxed will grow to $1,048,576.

Spring

is in the Air By: Alyssa Thomann

Read more at: StyleToMe.com

> Good riddance cold weather, the first warm days of spring have arrived! It’s time to open up the windows and smell the rosesbut not so fast. Springtime brings us sunshine and flowers but with beautiful spring comes ugly allergies. Don’t lose hope though; there are a number of ways to combat your pesky allergies. From medication to household habits, these remedies will allow you to enjoy the season rather than suffer through it. First things first, if you take medications to control your seasonal allergies, start taking them early. Spring pollen season starts much earlier than people think. Generally, pollen starts filling the air as soon as the weather begins to warm up. By starting medications in early March rather than late March, you can keep your symptoms under control as spring progresses. Know your over-the-counter medications. If you have mild seasonal allergies, both nasal sprays and oral over-the-counter antihistamines can effectively manage

styletome.com

your symptoms. If it seems effectiveness is wearing off, try periodically switching to other brands so your body does not become tolerant of the medication. Just as you should start taking your allergy medication early in the season, the same applies to your daily life. If you have plans to be outside in the afternoon, make sure to take your allergy medication at least 2 hours before heading out.This will give your medication time to get into your system before the pollen does. Be aware of pollen counts. If you’re going to be working outside, consider planning your outdoor work for a day when pollen counts are expected to be low and it is not so windy. If you have severe allergies, consider wearing a protective allergy facemask when mowing the lawn, raking leaves or washing the car. To minimize allergens circulating through your home, keep your doors and windows closed whenever possible. Get an air purifier

or a high-efficiency furnace filter and be sure to change it every spring and again in early summer. Be sure to change your air filters in your home often and keep all bookshelves, vents and other places where pollen may collect clean. For some, when spring rolls around, it is not so pleasant to “wake up and smell the roses.” However, with these simple tips, your spring will seem a lot less miserable and a lot more beautiful. <

Improve LongTerm Returns With Patience & Focus By: Tony Keena Read more at: StyleToMe.com

> As we look back over the first decade of the 21st century, we can draw one undeniable conclusion – it was a bear of a time for investors. Major market declines from 2000 to 2002 and then again in 2008 dragged equity returns well below their long-term averages. But research will show that, as disappointing as the markets have been, the average investor has fared far worse. As defined by Dalbar, the average investor refers to the universe of all mutual fund investors whose actions and financial results have been restated to represent a single investor. This approach allows the entire universe of mutual fund investors to be used as the statistical sample, ensuring ultimate reliability. Caught in the emotional cycle of investing, many investors continue to pull in and out of the market, abandoning long-term strategies, and paying the price with less than optimal returns. A study of investment behavior by a major investment research firm underscores the point. DALBAR compares the long-term returns (up to 20 years) of equity fund investors against the S&P 500 Index, which represents a buy-and-hold strategy. In every year since 1998, the average investor has significantly underperformed the index. And although the gap between the two has narrowed in recent years, average investors continue to hurt themselves with their investment behavior. How can we improve our behavior in the coming decade, especially in the light of continued volatility? While we can’t say for sure where the markets are headed, the volatility in the recent past should not surprise us. Coming off a major rebound in 2009, a moderate pullback was to be expected, at least until the economy can sustain a long-term recovery. But as we remind investors time and again, focus less on market behavior and more on your own behavior. The research shows, market timing doesn’t pay. Let me mention several strategies that have served investors well for generations; diversification, dollar cost averaging, and patient and consistent investing. (Dollar cost averaging includes continuous investing regardless of price levels. Although its goal is to

styletome.com

lower the investors average portfolio cost, it does not assure a profit and does not protect against loss in declining markets). When others in our industry began to question these time-tested practices, we did not. Nothing that has happened throughout this recent market cycle has eroded our faith in the value of remaining fully invested – in all markets – and focusing steadfastly on longterm goals. Do you remember the heady years from 1995-1999 when it seemed the market could only go up? Fueled by the dot.com boom, investors flocked to speculative investment options in record numbers. Upbeat and confident in their investment acumen, they focused on the upside, ignoring risks and inflated prices. When the bubble burst in 2000, it wiped out significant wealth and investors learned a hard lesson. In the 2008 bear market, we saw the opposite happen, as skittish investors sold their investments or moved to cash in equally disturbing numbers. Confidence was shaken by steep decline, investors grew anxious, many abandoning well thought-out strategies. Even though stock prices were at record lows, investors looked for someone to blame. And while investor sentiment has improved measurably in recent months, many still let fear be their guide. Get the picture? Timing is difficult and impatience may erode returns. Picking a strategy for each of your goals and sticking with it – assuming your individual circumstances haven’t changed – is often the most viable strategy. < This material represents an assessment of the market environment at a specific point in time and is not intended to be a forecast of future events, or a guarantee of future results.

best friends > Here in Florida, swimming is essential to keep cool in those brutal summer months. The heat can be sweltering, and that’s without a heavy fur coat. For our beloved canine companions, the upcoming and inevitable torridity can make them miserable, which in turn makes us miserable as well. We love our dogs, and want them to be as happy and carefree as we can possibly make them.

We hope these ensembles make the upcoming months that much more enjoyable and fun for you and your pup! If you’ve got one of the more courageous comrades, there are ostentatious bikinis, swim trunks, and tanks to perfectly complement their personality. If you’ve got one of the more cautious canines, a float coat is the perfect solution. Luckily, dogs are mostly colorblind so your shy pooch will likely forgive you for the Lily Pulitzer inspired bright pink and green life jacket.<

While most dogs absolutely love a dip, or more likely ‘jump’ into the water, there are some that may be petrified. Possibly some of your dogs, like mine, run around the pool barking until you get out of the pool because they think you’re in an immense amount of danger. You might love

nothing more than to take your ally to that boat party you’ve just been invited to, but don’t want to make your number one watchman feel insecure. Luckily, Funny Fur carries a plethora of life jackets and “float coats” for your pup. Just slip one on for the day, let them get used to being elevated and not having to paddle their way through terror, and watch them finally enjoy the heat-relieving water with you. Remember that if your dog is afraid, keep him in shallow water until he feels safe and comfortable. While he’s familiarizing himself with the sensation, reward him for being so brave.

Allowing your dogs to swim is not only a way to keep them happy, but a way to keep them fit as well. Swimming is a great resistance exercise for humans and canines alike. So if your friend has packed on the holiday weight just like its owner, consider letting him doggy paddle his way to fitness. Thanks to companies such as Funny Fur and Poochie Heaven, your dog will never need to take the naked plunge again. Offered in a wide array of styles, there will never be difficulty organizing that ‘fun’ date at the beach, except for how to manage all that sand in your car!
