Create Your Own Destiny

By Kim Burns

Photography By James Corwin Johnson

We are born into this world under our parents or guardians experiences and rules. They care, educate and provide for us the best they can with the knowledge they have earned. The world is full of traditions and rituals, commandments or lessons on the way you’re supposed to live. We may feel bound to follow the teachings of our elders, yet their guidance may not be what’s best for us. When that is the case, it takes a strong person to find their way out of the burden that was placed upon them.

If you were asked the question, who do you look up to?
The answer should be Poonam Maini.

Norm Luppino – Perspectives – Historical REAL Estate

Norm Luppino

The 1950’s Paved the Way for Future Booms

By Norm Luppino

Mention Florida’s Gulf Coast and one immediately conjures images of coastal themed homes, white sandy beaches, and lush, palm-infused tropical landscaping. During the past century, many events and market trends have helped shape the place we know today as Manatee County.

The famous Florida Land Boom of the 1920s introduced the first “skyscrapers” and transformed “Bradentown” from a small dot on the map to an emerging metropolitan city. In the 1960s, the proliferation of mobile home park communities popularized this area as an affordable designation for retirees from the north who desired an active but casual lifestyle. Beginning in the late 1980s, an influx of golf courses and upscale planned communities helped attract a more lucrative buyer to the area. Read More

Welcome To The New La Dolce Vita Section!

La Dolce Vita means the sweet life. I want to share my view of what the sweet life means.

By Kimberly Burns, OTR/L, CLT

Ism: Denoting a system, principle, or ideological movement or denoting a pathological condition. Your choice.
Kimisms – Live your life

You have a choice in life, you can choose the sweet life or the bitter life. Learning to navigate this world takes a great deal of self-confidence and knowledge to make it through. Being able to enjoy life with what you have now is the way to attaining a feeling of contentment within yourself. If you are fine and content where your life is now, you have made a commitment to maintaining that lifestyle. If you want to get ahead “You have to make a bigger commitment to yourself” states Tony Fitzgerald of Movement Mortgage. I want to get ahead and am ready to make a new commitment. Are you? Read More

Fall Inspired

By Becca Z. Towery

As a Worth New York Stylist and the Founder of We’ve Got Style I am often asked about seasonal looks & trends.

This season I am excited to bring to Sarasota the Worth New York Fall Collection, inspired by travel, prep schools, and soft textures. Worth New York channeled Amelia Earhart’s military vibe to take a worldly trip, borrowed rep stripes from the boys, and knitted the softest cables in this collection.

What happens when strong meets gentle? When tailored modernity mixes with soft & pretty, and Tea Rose bumps up against Navy and Moss? When structure plays with flow, and throughout there’s an homage to the power and the pleasure of pearls? It becomes magic with Worth’s Pearls of Wisdom collection. Read More

Your Doctor Told You To Do Yoga – Now What?

By

(L) Kimberly Burns, OTR/L, CLT

and

(R) Cheryl Albright OTR/L, RYT-200

Some physicians are now prescribing or suggesting yoga for all sorts of medical conditions. That’s appreciated! But now what? Do they have recommendations or will you be left on your own to find one? Most won’t really know how to explain yoga other than to have their patients go for stretching and strengthening. It’s also likely they won’t know where to send them and it’s possible they think all yoga practices are the same. How is the patient supposed to know how to safely treat their body with Yoga if they are not instructed by medical professionals?

The moment someone hears the word Yoga, thoughts of twisting and bending come to mind. If you are in pain and seeking comfort, twisting and bending are not in your visions of healing. Unless you have selected the slow, restorative practice class, walking into a typical Yoga class can be putting your body at high risk for further damage. Read More

Introducing Colleen Quinn At COCO Salon

By Colleen Quinn

Photography By Amanda Kastor

If you are looking for clean hair care without the sacrifice, look no further than downtown Sarasota. COCO Salon is the area’s newest destination for fresh styles and sparkling color without the chemicals.

I’m Colleen Quinn and I started my journey with clean hair care products over 10 years ago in my hometown of Grosse Pointe, Michigan with my own health in mind. I knew I had found my calling as a hair stylist but I didn’t want to pay the price for it later in life after a long career working with chemicals every day. I started researching alternative color and product lines that marketed themselves as clean, and effective. Most did not live up to those claims. They were missing the shine, dimension and grey coverage my clients deserved. For a color enthusiast, that was not going to cut it. Read More

My Internship Experience

By Crystal DaCorta

This summer, I was fortunate to join the team at Real Exclusive Magazine as an intern for the health section of the magazine. Before starting, I knew I wanted to learn how to incorporate my passion for health in the modern communication field, but lacked a feeling of direction. When I found this opportunity at the magazine I felt like I found my calling and could finally start gathering meaningful work experience that could help me choose a future career path. With this internship I was able to learn much more about health in general, as well as how to apply it in a work setting.

My experience with the magazine offered me my first real taste of the work force that I could picture myself involved with in the future. I learned valuable lessons from various projects and plan on utilizing that information in my future career path. Not only did this experience allow me to learn about the company itself and how it works, but also about myself and my own work ethic. Read More

Money Flows Across Borders

By Patricia Tan

The U.S.A. and the U.S. dollar have long been considered safe havens for capital from around the world, and our real estate market has been a beneficiary of that money flow. We see money fleeing political instability in its own country, or simply being invested here for a return. The strength of the U.S. dollar in international markets does have an impact on the rate at which money flows across our borders. A weak dollar tends to attract foreign investment, while a strong dollar may encourage prof-it-taking and repatriation of funds.

Canadians represent the largest group of foreign real estate owners here in Florida. Many buy winter homes simply to escape their harsh winter months, while others purchase rental properties to diversify their investments. Between 2007 and 2010 the Canadian dollar, supported by a strong commodity-based economy, regularly traded at or near par with the U.S. dollar, and this encouraged record levels of Canadian investment here in Florida. The currency landscape today is much different with the Canadian dollar worth around 75 U.S. cents. Read More

2018 Florida Annual Senior Living Conference

“The Carrots And Sticks”

By William Henry, PhD

As a first time attendee at the Florida Senior Living Conference, I learned a great deal about the latest industry wide issues from the presentations and direct interviews with many of the presenters. Many of these experts are colleagues from the legal profession we serve as architects, engineers, and forensic design experts. These are the summary of my takeaways.

THE LOOMING WORKFORCE SHORTAGE IN THE SENIOR LIVING INDUSTRY

The 2018 Senior Living Conference, held from July 23rd through the 25th in Ft. Lauderdale, addressed the looming workforce shortage. The focus of the conference was on staff recruitment to the industry, proper training, and staff retention. Complicating the scarcity of available qualified staff is competition with other medical support industries. Competing for staff to manage and to provide medical support services to senior living facility residents partially derives from acute care facility employers such as hospitals, surgical centers, and even large-scale nursing home chains. Apparently, the senior housing industry has just begun to compete for recent graduates of colleges and technical schools in the nursing field. That is surprising to most people in the construction industry who have bemoaned the labor shortages and hit the recruiting path to campuses long ago. Read More
