PUBLISHER’S NOTE

PHOTO BY RYAN & WOLF

Dear Readers, Let’s step into spring this year with fresh and colorful expectations, filled with excitement of what’s to come from the newfound energy that’s sparking up all around. New fashion trends are making an entrance, markets are jumping, and there’s a rising interest from brand advertisers wanting attention from you, our readers. However, don’t let me forget to mention that we do feel for the people up north who are still starting their daily lives with digging through piles of snow… We invite them all to visit beautiful Florida and enjoy the most wonderful weather to be found. March is here, and we’re getting you ready for the season with all the latest looks for the beach. In this issue, you’ll find the stylish shark attack that’s taking a bite out of the newest trends in swimwear. Famous for sleek, wearable swim collections, this label has a serious knack for sexy bikinis and flattering one-pieces. Let’s also have a look at the real estate market again. As a frequent viewer of “House Hunters International” (HGTV) I have noticed, with a good amount of frustration, that homes and condos all over the world are way more costly than here in Orlando—and I’m not talking about properties in Paris or Tokyo. Even remote towns in the middle of China or South America are serving up higher prices than we do. These deals in the Orlando area are insanely low, and after talking to many realtors, I can tell you that it’s not going to last. Prices are on the rise, so get in now! In the magazine and media world, print is back on top! Luxury brands need print as an advertising channel

and are focused on incorporating innovative ideas into magazine advertising space. A study of luxury magazine advertising ROI by ‘Marketing Evolution’ found that those are the most cost-effective means of influencing consumer behavior at certain stages of the decision-making process, also known as “purchase funnel,” beating out TV and online advertising media. Specifically, magazines dominate two crucial stages: brand familiarity and purchase intent. As trends in advertising and the media continue to change, our appreciation for our advertisers never will. We are grateful to all of our advertisers, without whom we would not be able to put out such a fantastic magazine each month. To our loyal readers, keep the great comments coming, “like us” on Facebook and tweet our stories! Last but not least, a big, heartfelt thanks to my staff for all their hard work. It’s springtime! Get married! Buy a home! Sincerely,

Sven J. Bode Publisher

entley recently announced its fastest and most powerful production model to date: the new Bentley Continental Supersports.

A top speed of 209 mph (336 km/h) and a 0-60 mph time of 3.4 seconds (0-100 km/h in 3.5 seconds) make the new Continental Supersports the world’s fastest and most powerful luxury four-seat car. Similarly, its soft-top sibling, the Continental Supersports Convertible, is the fastest four-seat convertible in the world, despatching the sprint to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds (0-100 km/h in 3.9 secs) on its way to a 205 mph (330 km/h) top speed. Bentley’s mighty W12 engine, redeveloped for the Supersports with new high-performance turbos and engine hardware, and a torque vectoring system create a Continental Supersports as agile as it is powerful. Meanwhile, unique styling cues inside and out give the new model a sharpened athletic appearance highlighting its performance potential. As well as offering supercar pace and a highly focused driving experience, there is no compromise in the refined nature of the Continental’s ride quality. This fusion of extremes in luxury and performance make the Supersports the ultimate iteration of a model that has come to define and dominate the grand touring genre. Wolfgang Dürheimer, chairman and chief executive of Bentley Motors, said: “The Supersports name is legendary at Bentley. From the very first Supersports of the 1920s, to the Continental Supersports of 2009 – and now with the third iteration of this iconic model – it is a name which excites, impassions and thrills. Only Bentley could create a car which blends immense performance and unrivalled luxury in this way.”

Longevity Spinach W H AT I T I S & W H Y YO U S H O U L D B E G R O W I N G I T

They say you are what you eat. This saying couldn’t be any more true for people living with diabetes. When it comes to maintaining normal blood sugar levels, a healthy diet is extremely important. Longevity Spinach, also known as Gynura Procumbens, is a vegetable that has recently become exceedingly popular in the U.S. This plant that was originally found in China, Southeast Asia, and Africa has been proven to have high medicinal value. Lately, people have started to grow this plant in their very own backyards. Due to all of its benefits, it’s easy to see why the plant has gained so much popularity in households all over the world. Research shows that Gynura lowers blood sugar levels and can be used as a successful treatment for diabetes. Specialists have used this plant for over a decade to treat diabetes in African regions. Recently, it has gained much significance in scientific circles. The plant can also help lower levels of cholesterol and triglycerides in the body. Research shows that along with lowering sugar levels, the ethanol extract of the plant’s leaves has anti-hyperlipidemic effects as well. Having low cholesterol levels can protect the body from heart and liver diseases, ensuring maximum health. Another benefit is weight loss, considering the plants fat lowering properties. Evidently, Gynura is the complete health package for a diabetic patient.

By Melanie Silva “Not only is Gynura considered a natural treatment for diabetes and for lowering cholesterol, but it is also great for lowering high blood pressure.”

Not only is Gynura considered a natural treatment for diabetes and for lowering cholesterol, but it is also great for lowering high blood pressure. High blood pressure can cause hypertension, which could be fatal if left untreated. Results suggest Gynura may prevent and treat hypertension by increasing nitric oxide production in the blood vessels. Nitric oxide dilates blood vessels and allows for a smoother blood flow, making the body happy again. Gynura is used as the perfect alternative to taking tablets. Gynura has also become famous for its anti-inflammatory effects. It contains many bioactive constituents, alkaloids and steroids. These steroids and alkaloids found in the plant play a vital role in warding off inflammation. Practitioners have used Gynura to help treat rheumatism for many years. Rheumatism

22

| ORLANDOSTYLEMAGAZINE.COM

is a disease which causes inflammation and pain in the joints or muscles. Because of the anti-inflammatory effects of this plant, it makes perfect sense to use the plant as a treatment for this disease. So, making Gynura a part of your everyday life will allow you to see these effects for yourself! Longevity spinach grows well either in the shade or full sun, but semi-shade is preferred as it tends to grow better. It can be slowly adapted to grow in full sun, so long as the plant’s roots don’t dry out. In the spring, the plant rapidly regenerates from the root system. It grows as an annual vegetable or can be kept potted inside during the winter months. It only requires a slight amount of care and is easily harvested by pinching off the end leaves. There are tons of different ways you can consume this plant. Its leaves have a mild raw taste so they can be crushed and put in smoothies, soups, or teas. They can also be used in sandwiches or in salads as a healthy snack. The most effective way is to eat it raw, but the possibilities are endless. Basically use it any way you would use any other leafy green and you can enjoy all these health perks! As always, check with your doctor before starting any new items into your diet.

CELEBRITY SOUP

Swimsuit season is upon us and I have to ask… whose brilliant idea was it to have spring so soon after the two holidays where we literally gorge ourselves full with great food and wine?! Many of us have to put in hours of work at the gym to get beach body ready, and I can only imagine how much harder that becomes when you start factoring in age and the slowing of your metabolism. Getting older never makes things easier when it comes to staying in shape. That is, unless you’re the following celebs who seem to have access to the fountain of youth (or more likely, an expensive personal trainer). These celebs may be past mid-age, but their bodies can still stun in the sun.

SIZZLING STARS!

By Riesa Pascal

MARK WAHLBERG, 45 YEARS OLD

CAMERON DIAZ, 44 YEARS OLD

JENNIFER ANISTON, 48 YEARS OLD

When he played a bodybuilder in 2013’s Pain & Gain, Mark Wahlberg did a great job of reminding the ladies why he used to be an underwear model. Several years later, he’s still rocking a body that can rival many of his peers and his secret is no secret at all. He simply trains with the same intensity and hardcore dedication that he puts into everything he does. Check out his full workout in detail on bodybuilding.com! Just be ready to make pain your new best friend immediately afterwards.

They say age ain’t nothing but a number and Cameron Diaz seems to be the living embodiment of that fact! Although it’s easy to assume she’s always been the health conscious superstar she is today, Cameron would be the first one to tell you that this isn’t the case. It was only after she quit smoking and was cast in Charlie’s Angels at the age of 26 that Cameron began to embrace a healthy lifestyle. Today she loves the gym and if she could give you just one tip for a healthy life, it would be to drink lots of water. Take a look at her #1 New York Times bestseller, The Body Book, for her complete guide to becoming happier, healthier, and stronger.

Jennifer Aniston is at the top of every list whenever people start talking about Hollywood’s ageless celebs. With a body and face that looks the same as it did in her 20s, I’m not entirely convinced she’s fully human. My doubts aside however, Jennifer’s tips for maintaining that great shape include a very disciplined diet and workout routine. She works out five days a week, and each session is a combination of cardio and stretches. As a result, she says she feels better in her 40s both physically and mentally.

CELEBRITY SOUP

Celebs over

CINDY CRAWFORD, 51 YEARS OLD

This supermodel has never lost her supermodel shape and she credits that to nothing but good old-fashioned workouts and “clean” eating. In 1992, Crawford released the Cindy Crawford: Shape Your Body Workout video and it’s incredible to see how little has changed nearly 30 years later. In an interview with Shape, Cindy spoke of her secret to looking ageless, saying, “I do think all the years of taking care of myself have added up. I don’t smoke, I have exercised for over 25 years, I use sunscreen, and take care of my skin… But probably the most important thing is to be living your life with gratitude. When you are grateful, you can’t help being happy.”

40 with rockin’ beach bodies

DWAYNE “THE ROCK” JOHNSON, 44 YEARS OLD

It may be cheating to include a professional wrestler in a list of stars with great bodies, but I think you’ll forgive me after admiring Dwayne Johnson’s rock hard beach body. To look the part for 2014’s Hercules, Johnson elevated his training significantly and bulked up by using a six-days-on, oneday-off schedule for six months, As one of Hollywood’s highest paid celebs with a starring role in Baywatch being released this year, it only makes sense that Dwayne would be in such incredible physical shape (I mean c’mon, they don’t call him “The Rock” for nothing). I don’t know about you, but I’ll definitely be at the theater on May 26th to watch Baywatch and reap the benefits of what he sowed at the gym.

JENNIFER LOPEZ, 47 YEARS OLD

Staying in shape has never been more important then when your job consist of donning skimpy outfits and dancing across a stage in front of thousands of your biggest fans. That pressure might be too much for some, but for Jennifer Lopez it has resulted in her being in the best shape of her life. Her advice for making the most of a workout is to stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water, especially before hitting the gym. Daily exercise, sensible eating and a desire to stay healthy and happy are the things that will keep this superstar looking beach body ready for many more years to come.

By Samara Halperin

It’s no secret that wearing workout clothes has become a trend more commonly worn in places other than the gym. Throwing on a pair of yoga pants just seems so easy when running to the grocery store or trying to catch a plane. It has become a social norm to see people wearing workout clothes almost anywhere. Let’s talk about those places where wearing any sort of athletic attire is definitely something to think twice about.

Yoga Pants

DO’S & DON’TS

Going anywhere work related in yoga pants may cause some stares. Even if it is a casual setting, wearing clothes that were originally made to sweat in may not be the best idea. Also, wearing pants to work that are known for making butts look good may send an uncomfortable message, which can lead to some awkward interactions. Let’s be honest, yoga pants make us look good. They are slimming, comfortable and come in a lot of trendy styles. As great as they are, a first date may not be the best place to show off the newest workout wear looks. Then again, first impressions are lasting impressions, and if you want yours to be how active you are, then by all means. Just make sure you are not headed to a really fancy event. It would be very uncomfortable being the only person standing in Dr. Phillips Performing Arts Center in the newest Lululemon style. Not exactly the idea the designer had in mind. Dressing in athletic clothes outside of the gym has become so popular that it has coined the term “athleisure” clothing. If the rumor is true that just putting on workout clothes

“Let’s be honest, yoga pants make us look good.”

makes people feel more fit, then it makes entire sense why so many people wear the same garments for a Sunday brunch as they would to exercise. It completely validates ordering that extra side of bacon. We won’t tell anyone if you don’t actually head to the gym after. Although there are certain places where wearing a full workout outfit is not the best idea, there are some really easy ways to turn a pair of leggings into a very stylish and dressy look. Boots of any kind always make leggings look dressed up. Adding a comfortable, loose sweater or jacket makes for a trendy outfit. Any type of long shirt or tunic is another way make your workout pants become chic pants. Cropped leggings with Converse and a basic shirt make a casual look without giving the idea that the gym is your next stop. There are plenty of places where workout clothes are completely appropriate, but don’t forget about the items you had in your closet before gym clothes took over the fashion world.

ORAH ONES By Courtney Caggiano

THE SINGER MAKES US FALL IN LOVE WITH JAZZ AGAIN WITH DAY BREAKS

If someone were to ask if you like jazz, Norah Jones would probably come to mind, and once again you would feel slightly more cultured than your current car radio presets make you feel. She’s the crossover artist who brought jazz back into our vocabulary, the moody singer who made us slow down the rhythm of the day with her sultry vocals and gentle piano over a quiet glass of wine. Who could forget her 2002 breakout hit “Don’t Know Why” and the lonely sound of that breathy voice singing us a new song that stood out in the crowd of contemporary music? On March 8, you can hear all of those Norah Jones standards that made you a fan from the very beginning when she takes the stage at the Bob Carr Theater for a night of music and memories. The nine-time Grammy Award winner will be performing her various classics from the past decade and a half as well as songs from her most recent album, Day Breaks. This album is somewhat of a montage of her musical roots, but it is not faint of souvenirs from the genres with which she has played and the roads she has travelled over the years. Since her 2002 album, Come Away with Me, Jones has wandered along many highways and byways of music, stretching herself further than her jazz piano standards and experimenting with new sounds album after album. In 2006, she tested the waters of country music with her side project, The Little Willies, and she gave alternative fans unexpected material with her electric guitar-driven “Happy Pills” album, Little Broken Hearts, in 2012. Not a stranger to stepping out of her comfort zone at the piano, Jones even learned guitar for the album, which gave her new perspective to find uncharted songs outside of the jazz genre that had yet to be written.

48

| STYLETOME.COM

But with Day Breaks, perhaps Ms. Jones has returned to her favorite place, the jazz arrangements that she calls home—but this time, Ms. Jones is wiser for the wear. Day Breaks is a picture of a grown-up Jones who has come full circle, an expression of true, unrefined jazz music of the likes one would find in smoky New Orleans bars nearly a century ago. Once again behind the piano, Jones seems comfortable and capable, making everything from jazz piano riffs to heartbreaks look easy. She slides around the keys effortlessly and rambles about lost love with contentment and understanding. Like a dreamy singer shaken awake from her sleep, this older and wiser Jones sees faded love more as a simple fact of life rather than a pitfall that must be avoided. Her single “Carry On” reveals a sadly satisfied songstress who knows it is much better for two old lovers to continue their own paths than to worry and wonder about what might have been. Her latest album also features instrumentation by some of the most recognizable jazz musicians from her Blue Note Label, as well as her own take on throwback songs from Horace Silver, Duke Ellington, and Neil Young. In signature Norah Jones fashion, her sensitivity to the nuanced nature of jazz makes it quite difficult to decipher between the original tracks and her covers. Although Jones began her career as jazz-crossover artist, Day Breaks shows off even more of her repertoire of jazz arrangement and melodic creativity than her first albums.

GLUTES Tightening your glutes is a workout that your passengers will probably not even notice. Try to keep your legs approximately shoulder width apart and squeeze your glutes as tightly as you can. Each squeeze should be about five seconds. Repeat this exercise ten times. SHOULDERS There are a couple of ways to work out your shoulders while just sitting in your car. Shoulder shrugs may make you feel a little ridiculous, but it is a great way to exercise your traps. Simply pull your shoulders up to your neck and told it there for five seconds, and then release.

Continue this motion ten times. After, try some shoulder rolls forward and then backward for ten seconds each. THIGHS To work out your thighs while in the car, squeeze your legs together as tight as you can, and then release slowly. Make sure to leave just a little bit of tension between your thighs the entire time. Repeat this exercise about ten times.

workout that can be done anywhere. Just lean your head to one side and lightly hold your head there for about 20 seconds. Do the same thing to the other side. Then lean your head forward trying to get your chin to touch your chest. Hold it there for about 20 seconds. Finish this stretch by gently rolling your neck in each direction a few times. ARMS After driving for a long period of time, stretching out your arms is a great way to

release tension. Place your hands on the steering wheel and push forward, allowing your arms to extend as much as they can. ABS Working out your abs is another workout that your passengers probably would not notice you doing. Just tighten your stomach muscles and hold it for about ten seconds. Repeat this for several times. Make sure to breathe in through your nose and breathe out through your mouth.

If you choose to exercise while operating a moving vehicle, please be aware of the potential dangers. Use common sense. We do not encourage exercising while the vehicle is in motion. Always remember to never take your eyes off of the road at any time while driving.

DROP OF FOAMED MILK ESPRESSO 60ML

The macchiato is an important feature of Italian coffee culture. It’s basically an espresso (served in a demitasse cup) with a small amount of foamed milk on top. There is another type of macchiato called “latte macchiato,” which is a cup of hot milk with a shot of espresso. Today, you can order it with many different flavors, and you can even have it iced (which also makes for a “pretty” drink).

Traditional cappuccinos, along with espressos and lattes, are all traditional Italian coffee-like beverages with the combination of espresso and steamed milk. Cappuccinos consist of half frothy steamed milk, half espresso. Most cappuccinos now are sweetened, flavored, and often made from a concentrated mix, although they still share the same frothed milk and coffee flavors like the original cappuccino. This drink can also be iced.

STEAMED MILK 120 ML ESPRESSO 60 ML

This drink is one of the more complicated drinks to prepare. The flat white consists of a double shot of espresso combined with micro-foamed milk that is heated consistently all the way through. The drink is served a little bit cooler than a cappuccino. The flat white has a velvety texture that remains consistent while you are drinking it.

Many people believe that espresso is a dark, bitter, almost burnt-flavored roast of coffee, when in fact espresso is not a roast at all. It’s a method of preparing the coffee. The coffee is grounded finely and is tightly packed into a “portafilter”. High-pressure water is then forced through the grounds and extracted in small, concentrated amounts. Why do you think it’s called a “shot?”

56

| STYLETOME.COM

SERVE TO YOUR LIKING ADD MILK/ FLAVORS

It is not your typical “iced coffee”. Cold brew, also called cold water extract or cold press, is coffee that’s brewed with room temperature/cold water for several hours ( 12 to 24 hours! That’s crazy! ) Then the coffee concentrate is ready to be prepared to order. Just like any other coffee, water or milk is used, and it can be served hot, over ice, or blended with ice and other ingredients. Yum!

Lattes are probably the most common drink ordered by people. “Cafe Latte” means “milk coffee” in English, and that’s pretty much what it is. A good portion of the drink is steamed milk with espresso shots to liven it up, usually topped with about 1/2 inch or so of foam. You can add as much espresso shots as you like, along with having it flavored.

HEALTH & BEAUTY

When it comes to applying makeup, there is plenty of controversy on the most effective way to make your skin look natural and smooth. The infamous Beauty Blender sponge is no doubt the most popular applicator. However, how different is it from any of the other name brand sponges or the $3 sponges that can be purchased at a drugstore?

Blender Splendor By Samara Halperin

“Other popular brands for these blending sponges, such as Real Techniques, do a very similar job to that of the original Beauty Blender for a much lesser price. So, what’s the difference?”

The Beauty Blender was what started it all. The way it applies foundation and concealer leaves a smooth face without any streaks. Other popular brands for these blending sponges, such as Real Techniques, do a very similar job to that of the original Beauty Blender for a much lesser price. So, what’s the difference? For a sponge blender, the Beauty Blender brand absorbs the least amount of makeup and maximizes the amount being applied. It is a soft, fuzzy material that is egg shaped with a pointed top. The top makes it easy to apply around eyes, while the wider end blends in larger areas of the face. The softness allows the sponge to bend in any way while making sure there are no streaks. Real Techniques is a makeup brush and applicator company that came out with their own sponge. Similarly to the Beauty Blender, their makeup sponge is soft and applies the makeup very smoothly. This blender, however, has a very different shape. Also having a pointed top to easily apply makeup around the eyes, the Real Techniques sponge has one flat side and one rounded, egg-like side. The flat side is great for patting makeup and first applying it, while the rounded side does a great job blending in the makeup. Another way to apply makeup is a flat, oval-shaped silicone sponge which has very recently become an internet fad. It was originally created by Molly Cosmetics but is now a popular product among several makeup companies. This product is great for anyone whose biggest pet peeve is losing some of their makeup inside of their sponge. This silicone makeup applicator absorbs absolutely no makeup, allowing the product to go a long way. A lot of people feel the silicone material does not blend in the makeup very well and leaves streaky marks around the face. Before any of these fancy sponges came about, women have always used the basic white, triangular sponge that comes in huge packages. With these being a fraction of the cost, why would anyone purchase any other makeup applicator? The biggest difference is that the material of this type of sponge absorbs a lot more of the makeup, causing it to be used up much faster. These types of sponges are also very challenging to clean, explaining why they are commonly purchased in large packages. These different types of makeup sponges each have their pros and cons. Whether softness, ability to blend, absorbing of makeup or cost are your big concerns, there are plenty of options to apply makeup for anyone who can not handle the idea of using their hand.

Signs Your Pet Has

Seasonal Allergies By Melanie Silva

AS SPRING SLOWLY APPROACHES, it brings

a terrible side effect: allergies. Did you know seasonal allergies affect our pets just as badly as they affect us? Here are four signs your pet could be suffering from seasonal allergies: CONSTANT SCRATCHING

If your pet has allergies, their skin will become very itchy. For dogs and cats, their allergies more often take the form of skin irritation or inflammation, a condition referred to as allergic dermatitis. Pets will most likely start scratching excessively due to the itchiness, and they might even bite at certain areas of their bodies. They may also rub themselves against some surfaces like the carpet, furniture, or wall. IRRITATED SKIN

As a result of all the itching and scratching, your pet’s skin may become extremely irritated. Just like humans, pets can break out in rashes if they’ve been exposed to something that they’re allergic to. Pay close attention to the areas around their paws, as well as the belly. If you notice any red, irritated skin, it’s most likely a sign of allergies. CONTINUAL LICKING

If you suspect that your animal has seasonal allergies, it’s best to have them examined by your veterinarian as soon as possible. You could also try to relieve your pet’s allergies at home by giving them frequent baths, vacuuming your floors, and cleaning your pet’s paws and coat after being outside.

If your pet is constantly licking parts of their bodies, it could be that something in their environment is bothering them. Your pet will do anything to try to reduce itching, including licking their skin. Unfortunately, biting, licking and scratching can cause open sores and scabs. Sores can become infected, which can result in making your pet even more uncomfortable. RUBBING EARS FREQUENTLY

Pets with allergies also tend to have problems with their ears. The ear canals could become itchy and inflamed, as well as infected with yeast or bacteria. This may lead to hair loss around the ears, head tilting, or constant ear scratching. For cats and dogs, symptoms of ear infections include scratching, odor, discharge, redness, swelling, and crusts or scabs.


REAL ESTATE ART OF THE DEAL

In Triple Net Lease Investing, 50% of the value of the asset is driven by the real estate. While the other 50% is driven by the quality of the tenant and the lease that binds them to the real estate. If you desire a long and lucrative run in Triple Net Lease Investing, you need to master the art of successful due diligence analysis. This is achieved by carefully evaluating the following:

• Evaluate the real estate: Remember

Investing in Real Estate By Hooman Hamzehloui

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! • Evaluate the tenant: Seek the highest qualified tenants with the best financial statements. • Evaluate the lease: The lease must be clear and concise. It should have teeth to hold the tenant accountable to their commitment with a substantial security deposit or have personal or corporate guarantees. It must have 2%-4% in annual rent escalations to keep up with inflation. For more detailed information on evaluating the real estate, tenant, lease and all other due diligence analysis, please email me at hooman@ mastersrealty.com.

Over the last few issues we’ve talked about Orlando’s white hot commercial real estate market. We’ve also discussed a few of the high risk/high rewards deals that some of our clients have recently taken advantage of. In this issue, I want to discuss the benefits of Triple Net Lease Investing AKA “NNN” deals. This is one of the most popular type of commercial real estate investment. The NNN stands for Net, Net, Net. You will hear some refer to it as “Triple Net” deals. THE PERFECT DEAL

Triple net lease investing is when a investor buys a free standing building that is leased to a tenant. Triple net deals can be as close to perfect as a deal could get. Investors of all skill level often gravitate to these deals because they provide stable cashflow while the tenant pays for the real estate taxes, all the insurance, and all maintenance of the property. BENEFITS OF A TRIPLE NET DEAL

• no management responsibility • longterm lease with annual rent escalation • stable cashflow • great tax benefits specific to real estate

When you subtract the $19,164.53 mortgage payment from the monthly base rent payment of $36,106.25, you’re left with a monthly positive cash flow of $16,941.72. That figure will go up 3% annually while the tenant pays for the real estate taxes, all the insurance, and all maintenance of the property. Under the deal’s annual base rent timeline, the investor will have broken even in 10.3 years. Then the owner/investor will go from making $16,941.72 a month to making $48,523.32 a month because there will no longer be a mortgage on the asset. Over the life of the tenant’s lease, the owner/ investor will have collected $8,058,343.41 over 15 years without spending a penny on ownership costs. Regardless of the size of your investment capital, there is a Triple Net Lease Investment out there in your price range. With benefits like these, it is easy to see why Triple Net Lease Investments are often the most valuable player of an investor’s investment portfolio.

IN THE KNOW

Losses Due to Bad Advice From Your Broker?

I’ll See You in Court! (Well, arbitration...)

A

t the time this article was authored, the Nasdaq closed at record highs that haven’t been seen since the Dotcom Bubble in 1999. Wall Street doesn’t seem to be bothered by the onslaught of breaking news from Washington – or, more likely, the market is trending upward due to the anticipation of “shifts in fiscal policy that will stimulate growth and perhaps raise earnings” per Federal Reserve chief Janet Yellen (as reported by money.cnn.com). Some strategists are taking a cautious approach, however, opining that the market may be overdone and is subject to correction in the near future. This could lead to substantial losses for those heavily invested in the current bullish market.

72

| ORLANDOSTYLEMAGAZINE.COM

Generally, investors hire financial advisors, brokers and brokerage firms to make sound investment decisions for the investor. The relationship between the advisor and the investor is much like that of the attorney and the client: the client trusts in the financial advisor’s knowledge and acumen in the industry, therefore a fiduciary duty flows from the advisor to the investor. Traditionally, the investor will work with the advisor to identify his or her investment goal, and the advisor will make recommendations and take action to further the goals identified. Seems easy enough, but oftentimes advisors make investment decisions with their clients’ funds that may be motivated by their own financial gain. Perhaps the broker, encouraged by the bullish market, makes several risky investment decisions for a client who has a financial goal of long-term, low risk gains. Perhaps that broker was wrong, and ends up losing a substantial amount, or maybe even all of that client’s money. What then? Does the investor have recourse to recoup the losses in this hypothetical? Yes, recourse exists. Typically when an investor signs a contract with a broker or brokerage firm, the contract contains a mandatory arbitration clause, which requires any dispute to be resolved by and through the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (“FINRA”). Investors should familiarize themselves with the possibility of pursuing recoupment of losses resulting from potential mismanagement of funds by his or her broker or financial advisor. There are many ways in which a financial advisor can be held responsible for mismanaging investments, but most claims fall under the “Breach of Fiduciary Duty” cause of action. In the event of a potential Breach of Fiduciary Duty

claim against one’s financial advisor, it is important to remember that claims must be filed within six (6) years from the date of the transaction or occurrence; what constitutes a “transaction or occurrence” depends on the factual circumstances of the case. Obviously, claims relating to mismanagement of investments are highly complex; often times quite a lot of money is at stake. Don’t assume arbitration is like a mediation: Phil Snyderburn, a veteran securities attorney with Snyderburn, Rioshi and Swann, emphasizes that binding arbitration is indeed an adversarial proceeding, with “each stage of the process requiring execution and highlevel decision making processes, weighing costs and benefits and anticipating consequences.” Based on statistics published by FINRA in 2016, 61% of all claims were settled during the arbitration process, meaning the investor/claimant most likely walked away with some form of recoupment of loss in exchange for the dismissal of the case. It’s only reasonable to assume the cases that are settled are handled by experienced securities arbitration attorneys; to proceed without one – for either the broker or the investor - would undermine the chances for a fair outcome. Arbitration is much more affordable than litigation, which is yet another benefit – particularly to those who may have already suffered losses due to trigger-happy brokers. And hey, not all brokers are bad, but when the transaction seems contrary to the investment goal discussed, it’s always wise to look a little deeper – FINRA has your back.

SPOTLIGHT ON THE LAW Special Promotional Feature

There is No Right to Privacy in Social Media The use of the internet and various forms of social media such as Twitter, Facebook, Snapchat as well as text messaging have impacted not only personal relationships but also employment, dating, and criminal laws.

Mark L. Horwitz

I have seen the adverse consequences as a result of people sharing information through the various forms of social media. Jobs have been lost due to employers, supervisors or customers viewing communications thoughtlessly sent to friends, coworkers or customers via text or email. People often use these forms of communications instead of talking on the phone or in person without considering the permanent nature of emails and text messages. There are major differences between verbal communications and messages in our modern media. When we speak with each other inflection, sarcasm, and non-verbal forms of communication impact the message and put a message into context. When sending an email or text message, even if something is meant in a kidding manner, it may be perceived differently than intended. When viewed by an employer, the email may cause the sender to be fired.

Sending pictures or comments to friends with the understanding that the communications or pictures will not go any further is dangerous. Anything sent over the Internet or on social media is not going to disappear and may be shared with others whom the originator did not intend. People send pictures of themselves in various compromising positions to friends via email and social media. The sending of a picture which reflects an individual under 18 years of age may constitute

a crime even if it is sent or shared by a person who is under 18 years of age. Often tragic consequences result from sending embarrassing or compromising photographs. People must remember that emails do not go away and that they may come back to embarrass the originator or even subject a person to criminal investigation. Posting your whereabouts on social media can have unintended consequences. Hackers or others with access through friends may determine that an individual is away from home. The unscrupulous may use information to plan a burglary of a home knowing that the owners are out for the evening or on vacation as seen by their posts. The bottom line is that everyone should assume that whatever is posted can be viewed by others now and will remain available forever. You should establish rules as to what to post, and what not to post, on social media. One rule should be no emails or posting if you are mad, upset or otherwise unable to properly appreciate your comments. Failure to do so can be a potential source of embarrassment or worse. There is no right to privacy in anything posted or shared on the Internet even if sent to an individual who is a close friend or spouse. As Benjamin Franklin said, three people can keep a secret if two are dead. Today, however, the secret is available to all via the Internet.

At an elevation of 184 feet above sea level, Mount Dora is Florida’s equivalent of a mountain top town. With a population of approximately 15,000, Mount Dora evokes that quiet and comfortable “Southern” charm and hospitality of a lakefront community nestled amongst the gentle hills of Central Florida.
