On the one hand she was perfect for the reality show--young confident gorgeous and a longtime girlfriend to ex-Miami Dolphins receiver (and current Baltimore Ravens wideout) Mike Wallace. On the other hand as noted in the standard release form that reality participants must sign the editing of a show like WAGS (which stands for Wives and Girlfriends of Sports Stars) is at the producer s discretion. Participants may reveal or relate information ... of a personal surprising defamatory disparaging embarrassing or unfavorable nature that may expose them to public ridicule. Not unlike every single day of the 2016 presidential campaign. The first conversation my attorney and I had was about the potential for the show to damage my brand says Cole who aspires to have an Oprah-like TV and online presence one day. But like he said Look at reality stars of other shows. What s the worst that can happen Just don t do anything too crazy. A similar thought ran through my mind--and no doubt through the minds of our creative director Melanie Geronemus Smit and our photographer Eduardo Schneider--as a staffer at Machete Productions fitted us with wireless microphones aboard the luxury yacht She s a 10. Our team while working with Vanessa for a cover and inside feature in the November issue would be part of the storyline for an episode of WAGS Miami. For the first 15 minutes conscious of the microphone clipped to the inside of my shirt I edited everything that came out of my mouth. But at a certain point during the afternoon of shooting at Bahia Mar Yachting Center you forget that senior members of the production team are huddled inside the yacht cabin with headphones monitoring every word that s spoken while we re on the top deck having private conversations about the shoot. Did anyone say or do anything too crazy You be the judge. The episode of WAGS Miami featuring Lifestyle was slated to air Oct. 30 (10 p.m. on E ) but you also can catch this season s shows at eonline.com now wags-miami. As for the photo shoot we think the cover speaks for itself--but trust us there are even more surprises inside. Enjoy the November issue.

For two weeks after the album s release 100 percent of the sales went toward ALS research (the sales of her 2014 album Pure Silver also raised money for the cause) so it meant that much more that The Gold Standards placed No. 1 on the Billboard chart for Traditional Jazz Album. Silver shares more about her album musical influences and fight against ALS with Lifestyle. What keeps the standards relevant Each song can transition into any time period. Through the years many of them have evolved into becoming standards of that decade as well. What s really cool is that the younger generation is listening to these songs. They re listening to Tony Bennett sing them. They re listening to Michael Bubl sing them. It makes me happy to share this music not only with the people who grew up listening to it but to new people who are falling in love with the Great American Songbook. There was a period when you stopped performing. What happened When I had my daughter my second child I caught a very rare bone F or someone who grew up in Mississippi with a sweet twang and a passion for the blues Deborah Silver couldn t be more comfortable with the Great American Songbook. The Delray Beach resident croons the classics on her second album The Gold Standards which debuted in September. It helps that the standards on the 13-song album including a duet with jazz legend Jack Jones ( I ve Got a Crush on You ) were the ones favored by her mother (a former opera singer) while Silver was growing up. But the tracks also speak to the Silver spin --a sultry blend of her influences from bluesy to soul to funk--she brings to all her music. Silver is putting a different but no less personal spin on her quest to disease. I ended up in a wheelchair unable to walk for almost a year. I got to see a whole different perspective of the world. [After recovering] I devoted myself to raising my children so I took [a break] from my career. Children learn a lot of great things in school but I also wanted to teach them about being good people giving back to their community and doing the morally right thing. I always sang to them in bed in fact I would sing the Standards to them. We d be at Mommy and Me classes talking about nursery rhymes and I would start feeling so guilty. I d say I can t believe I didn t teach my children Jack and Jill. And somebody would always make me feel better and say Yes but your children know every song to every Broadway show. How did SLAM ALS come about My daughter Madison (age 17) and I started SLAM ALS. The ice bucket challenge did so well but it just didn t get far enough. We wanted to finally SLAM the door on ALS. We re asking people to do some kind of a video that shows people slamming something. We ve brought in a lot of celebrities. Larry King slammed his suspenders. Tommy Tune slammed his tap shoes. Even Chris Evert slammed her racket. We re just hoping that more people will see this and take it on.

SOLOMON Above the Clouds The lowdown Embraer Executive Jets which bases its U.S. headquarters in Fort Lauderdale has introduced a new interior design for its Lineage 1000E the largest business jet in its fleet seating up to 19 passengers. The details Called the Kyoto Airship the interior has a custom look that resembles a yacht more than an airplane. The plane has door-size windows and skylights that arc from the floor to the ceiling. The idea is to create a flying experience that feels similar to what passengers might enjoy at home (or on their luxury boat). Jay Beever vice president of interior design for Embraer Executive Jets worked with Fort Lauderdale-based yacht designer Patrick Knowles on the concept.

For starters as noted by the American Bourbon Association Kentucky does not have a monopoly on the spirit it can be made anywhere in the United States (although to be fair 95 percent of it is distilled in the Bluegrass State). Also all bourbon is indeed whiskey all whiskey however does not adhere to the strict federal regulations that govern bourbon production. Then there are those who thumb their nose at bourbon s versatility. Some whiskey drinkers are adamant that drinking it any way other than neat is an outright offense to the spirit says Juan Horta sommelier at Council Oak Steaks & Seafood the award-winning restaurant inside Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood. The truth is simple. The proper way to drink [bourbon] is however you enjoy drinking it. At Council Oak which offers an impressive array of top-shelf bourbons (brands like Knob Creek Woodford Reserve and Jefferson s) that means drinking it the old-school way--like sipping Pappy Van Winkle s Family Reserve a 15-year-old bourbon that goes for 80 as part of the restaurant s One Ounce Club (an exclusive selection of high-end spirit pours served 1 ounce at a time that range from 23 to 720). Or it means drinking it the old-fashioned way which thanks to Council Oak couldn t be any sweeter. For its Barrel-Aged Chocolate Old Fashioned the mixology team blends Elmer T. Lee single-barrel bourbon with cr me de cacao--and then ages the mixture for a minimum of 41 days in an oak barrel. The resulting concoction after the finishing touches are added is a dessert unto itself-- but we suggest making it a double treat by enjoying the drink with the restaurant s mousse cake or chocolate souffl . --KEVIN KAMINSKI What s Old Is New BARREL-AGED CHOCOLATE OLD FASHIONED 2 ounces Elmer T.

Liquido Assets THE POPULAR BRAZILIAN ACTIVE-WEAR BRAND GOES HOLLYWOOD BY BECKY RANDEL The Olympic Games weren t the only exciting thing to come out of Brazil this year. Entrepreneur Renata Facchini has introduced Liquido to South Florida with a boutique at 1937 Harrison St. in Hollywood (754.263.2546). It s the first U.S. outpost for the highly sought-after active-wear designer. Liquido began in 2001 in Sao Paulo and quickly generated buzz in the fashion world. In 2009 having developed a passion for yoga Facchini discovered Liquido s soft lightweight high-stretch and vibrant pieces. She decided to invest in the company and it soon gained an even larger cult following. I was searching for something that could handle the sweat and range of motion g required in yoga says Facchini who also is a yoga instructor. Everything I tried was either too restrictive lost its shape or was just ugly. When I tried pe Liquido pants I knew I had found the perfect solution. d Liquido s colorful pieces continue to grow in popularity gracing nue the bodies of Brazil s most fashionable yogis runners and more-- nable which is why Facchini thought it was time to enter the U.S. market. We bring the vibrant colors and soul of Brazilian fashion lors combined with premium quality at affordable prices she says. As for the decision of where to launch Facchini says South o Florida was a no-brainer. The name Liquido is derived from ame water which is essential to life so this area felt like a o natural fit she says. Hollywood [specifically] appealed d to us because of the strong influence of arts and ence culture as well as the strong yoga community. ga Liquido s boutique approach sits well with its customers who gravitate to the Young Circle area. The store carries limited-edition print leggings which have been known to sell out as soon as a new ut pattern is released as well as Liquido s performance wear quido s swimsuit collection and a selection of mala bead necklaces. on Even better for South Florida all leggings and swimwear l pieces offer 50-plus UVA UVB protection and are quickrotection drying.

It s humbling to know the impact I ve made on lives just through spreading a positive message says the 25-year-old. It s a message grounded in the dramatic events that have redirected the Boca Raton resident s journey through life. By her senior year at the University of Florida the business administration major already had designed jewelry for the humanitarian fashion brand OmniPeace she also had launched a popular nonprofit Hello Perfect intent on building confidence in the lives of young women with selfesteem issues. I remember sitting in my apartment and thinking that my life was too perfect she says. In January 2013 Alexa s mother visited Gainesville to celebrate a milestone for Hello Perfect. When she noticed the artery in her daughter s neck throbbing she rushed her to the emergency room. Alexa was going into septic shock. Doctors induced a medical coma that lasted six days. She awoke in intensive care with a tube down her throat and hooked to nine bags of antibiotics. Another deadly bacterial complication set in six months later the result of her compromised immune system. To this day Alexa occasionally deals with the painful effects of autoimmune disease--but instead of hiding it she lets people see her at her worst. Her morning A CHAMPION OF WOMEN REACHES A NEW AUDIENCE WITH HER MESSAGE OF EMPOWERMENT AFTER A NEAR-DEATH EXPERIENCE motivational show on Periscope which started in April 2015 has become a candid cathartic and inspiring video journal. My mission is to empower people to dream big and believe in themselves says Alexa who has 35 000-plus social media followers (her good vibe tribe ). You can t do that without authenticity. I m willing to be transparent and vulnerable I can tell people what worked for me during my darkest hours. People hear that and think if she was able to find some ounce of light while going through all of that maybe I can too. In addition to speaking engagements Alexa spent the past year with event partner Kyle Michaud developing the Women Empower Expo which featured more than 50 workshops and 70 exhibitors. Next year the Expo will debut in Washington D.C. (May) and return to Fort Lauderdale (October). As many as four events are planned for 2018. The gift this disease has given me is that I never take the good days for granted any day I feel good I m making the most of it she says. I m so happy now to be focusing on my passion. Never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined doing an expo that attracts 3 000 people. I only knew that I was meant to speak my truth in front of others. --KEVIN KAMINSKI 32 NOVEMBER 2016 LMGFL.COM PHOTO BY EVELYN ROBLES An Elective MRI CT or PET Can quite possibly save your life.

While the photographer snaps image after striking image of the 27-year-old beauty on the bow of She s a 10 another set of cameras on the perimeter of the shoot captures the action for E Network. Cole s turn as a cover girl for Lifestyle is one of the storylines during a mid-season episode of WAGS Miami the reality spinoff that follows the lives of seven wives and girlfriends of professional athletes. At one point as Cole s designer silk coverup billows dramatically in the Intracoastal breeze her marketing manager can no longer contain her enthusiasm. This is your photo shoot Vanessa she shouts. You own this boat In truth the yacht belongs to Carolyn Plummer CEO of It s a 10 hair-care products. But if Cole has her way she ll have her own luxury vessel--sooner rather than later. When you re on the exact same frequency as people whose lives are headed on a higher trajectory that s when the magic begins to happen she says. I can see [my future]. It s so vivid. I can taste it. For Cole--the mother of two daughters (Maliha 6 and Brooklyn 1) with longtime boyfriend Mike Wallace the former Miami Dolphins wide receiver who now plays for the Baltimore Ravens--the cattiness and confrontation inherent to a reality show like WAGS Miami is a means to an end. She sees the show as the next branding step in a Red-printed dress designed by Shahida Parides available at Shop Famosa Miami Springs 42 NOVEMBER 2016 LMGFL.COM progression that ultimately will lead to her own TV program and a broader audience for The Vanessa Network the online platform she envisions that will offer insights into business beauty and bliss. The beauty and business elements certainly are in her wheelhouse. Though born in New York Cole spent her formative years in Dallas and later Houston (where her parents and Wallace s parents currently live). It was there that Cole began turning heads in the real estate world selling residential properties and representing investors and private equity firms. Her rapid rise at a young age led Cole and a partner to launch their own realestate investment company a venture that didn t last. I learned a lot from that experience about trusting my intuition Cole says. There were red flags going on with that company and I ignored them. There s nothing wrong with taking a risk but I was moving too fast and making hasty decisions. I needed to regroup and change lanes. It was about that time in 2013 that Cole moved to Broward County with Wallace the talented wideout who joined the Dolphins that year after a prolific fouryear run with the Pittsburgh Steelers. The two had first met in Dallas Wallace then a senior at Ole Miss was in town for a game against Texas Tech. For about three months after that night he blew up my phone Cole says. He ended up coming back to train at the Michael Johnson Performance Center [outside of Dallas] before the NFL draft. He calls one night and goes I need to see you I ve been blowing up your phone and you haven t White bandage bikini designed by Lana Yakoby lanayakoby.com given me any attention. We went to the movies and to lunch a few times. He finished his training and went back to New Orleans [his hometown]. And I realized that I was missing him. ... We ve been together now for more than eight years. The duration of their relationship gives Cole a certain cachet on WAGS especially compared to women less secure about their own situation. In the debut episode Cole boldly suggests I can teach a lot of WAGS how to keep their man I m really like their modernday Jesus. It doesn t mean however that she s above learning something from the show and her fellow cast members. LMGFL.COM NOVEMBER 2016 43 Black dress designed by Lana Yakoby lanayakoby.com The show has opened me up I ve been discovering more about who I am she says. For example in my personal relationship I don t communicate as effectively as I do in business. Maybe that s a reason why Mike and I aren t married yet. It s not something I ve pressured him about it we don t even talk about it. I just go with the flow. But now that I ve talked about it on the show I m looking at my family life and thinking Vanessa what do you want You know exactly what you want in business. What do you want from your relationship I m seeing growth in that area. Cole admits that Wallace (who doesn t appear on the show) has been nervous about WAGS even though he fully supports her moment in the spotlight. It s a little tough for Mike to swallow sometimes she says. He s [used to being] the man and he has a strong ego. But this is important to me. What happens if we don t work out I don t want to be just another statistic chasing after him for alimony and child support. I want to live my dreams and [at the same time] be in a happy relationship.

NOVEMBER 2016 Kaftan with gold belt and choker designed by Asmaa Benkirane available at Le Beau Maroc Miami 45 Portrait of a Mama Bush I by Mickalene Thomas purchased at Art Basel and part of Good and Horvitz s exhibit at NSU Art Museum ART BY MICHELLE F. SOLOMON MATTERS OF THE Two renowned contemporary art enthusiasts share their collection with a South Florida museum--and gear up for Art Basel Miami Beach There s a large portrait by artist Mickalene Thomas titled Portrait of Mama Bush I that greets visitors when they walk into the Belief Doubt exhibit on the second floor of NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale. It s an imposing horizontal painting created on a wood panel with acrylic and enamel embellished with rhinestones. To hear Francie Bishop Good talk about the time in 2010 when she and husband David Horvitz spotted the painting and then decided to buy it makes it all the more enchanting. We all saw it at Art Basel she recalls remembering that it became quite a competition with another collector who wanted the piece. Good and Horvitz finally purchased it but the other collector persisted and approached them. He wanted to buy it from us I finally said OK. Then it ended up that he said he didn t have the room in his collection for the painting. So now Portrait is one of the works that Good and Horvitz treasure. Good is a teacher and an 46 NOVEMBER 2016 LMGFL.COM David Horvitz and Francie Bishop Good artist best known for her photographs but she s also a painter and multimedia creator Horvitz is an attorney entering his sixth year as chairman of the board of governors at NSU Art Museum. Together they have amassed a collection of about 800 pieces of contemporary art. Recently they announced a promised gift of 100 works to the museum 70 of which are on display there through the end of January as part of Belief Doubt Selections from the Francie Bishop Good and David Horvitz Collection. Art is part of the couple s life. In 2006 they created Girls Club a nonprofit organization that provides exhibition and educational space to support local female artists. There are exhibits too in a beautifully rendered industrial space between Andrews and Northeast Third avenues designed by Fort Lauderdale s Margi Nothard of Glavovic Studio. Next door is Good s personal art studio. The Girls Club name arose because the couple s art collection focuses mostly on female artists. At one point I looked around and thought What we have is mostly women and we should focus on that. We didn t really plan anything it happened organically Good says. Horvitz adds One of the things I m most proud of is that as much as we are collectors it s not our ambition to create our own museum. It s our ambition to support local entities and places like the NSU Art Museum. It s a passion and it leaves a legacy. Good says she spends as much time as she can trolling the galleries in New York. Much time also is spent preparing her own work for exhibit. Comus a collection of 70 works on canvas of media-saturated paintings created from high school senior yearbooks of the artist and her mother from 1942 and 1967 is now showing in Lafayette Louisiana it will be on display at the David Castillo Gallery in Miami beginning in February and then at the Coral Springs Museum starting in June. Horvitz recently has started collecting civil rights-era photography and has a collection of photos of actor Paul Newman. He was a friend Horvitz says. When Art Basel takes over the Miami Beach Convention Center (Dec. 1 4) the couple are ready to be immersed. They say they approach the international art fair differently. For Horvitz it s a chance to see a lot of different works. I like to see everything in one place he says. I like the buzz and I like the people. It s also a place to step back and see what the gallerists think the trends are--what might be popular because it changes from year to year. For Good it s about being an artist. I go in 80 percent as an artist and 20 percent as a collector she says adding that she covers all 500 000 square feet of exhibition space and attends the show for all five days (including the VIP preview set for Nov. 30 this year). N by Amy Sillman part of Good and Horvitz s collection LMGFL.COM NOVEMBER 2016 47 By the Light by Shinique Smith Satellite fairs during Basel Week are scattered throughout the area bringing crowds to see one of the world s largest gatherings of contemporary art. Most of these events have shuttle service to and from the convention center. Beyond Basel IN MIAMI BEACH We almost always buy from the galleries that we know and trust and who are showing the artists I ve been following. But occasionally we re surprised. While they sometimes walk around the show in a group Horvitz advises against it. You go with another collector and they want to look at the stuff that interests them she says. It s like going on a group tour you re only as fast as the slowest person. Then there s the question of the challenge that modern and contemporary art poses to many viewers because of its lean toward abstraction and away from more representational art. If I were going to give advice to someone it would be that they should go slowly through a contemporary art fair or exhibit. If the art is going to have any effect you have to look at it. A quick run through doesn t do it WHEN Dec. 1 4 Horvitz says.

One of the breakout stars of Bravo s The Real Housewives of New Jersey since its 2009 debut the 44-year-old mother of four daughters (Gia Gabriella Milania and Audriana) with husband Joe remains a devoted family woman. The author of four cookbooks also is as passionate as ever about her kitchen concoctions. And as Tonia Ryan the owner of Inance boutique in Pompano Beach can attest Guidice continues to possess an impeccable sense of style. (Giudice who s a fan of the brand will appear Nov. 4 at a grand-opening event for Inance s new women s clothing store at 1324 S. Federal Highway.) But as chronicled in this year s New York Times bestseller Turning the Tables other aspects of Giudice s life have changed--and in dramatic fashion. Starting in January 2015 Giudice served 11 months in a Danbury Connecticut prison after she and Joe were convicted on federal fraud charges. (Her husband began serving a 41-month sentence in March.) During the time away she kept a diary that became the tell-all memoir released last February. In addition to sharing details of her prison stint--including the strip search upon her arrival the maggots in her food and the sexcapades that went on in her cell (in which she did not participate)--Giudice looks back on her life and opens up in ways her fans have never before seen or read. Giudice took time to reflect on some of those revelations with Lifestyle. Between the yoga and between just what s happened to me I am a different person. It s not worth it to let other people affect me. That s how I feel now. I d rather just walk away. What have you learned about yourself as a result of the book and people s reaction to it I m proud of who I am and I embrace my life. That s what makes me so strong. I know I ve inspired a lot of people. I ve had people tell me that they were going through a hard time and I helped them get through it. Maybe I had to go through what I went through to help other people with their hardships. Are you cooking differently because of your lifestyle change I still cook my pasta and my Italian dishes. But I am trying to make everything healthier. I try to bake instead of fry. Sometimes I ll use brown rice instead of white rice. I m starting to use coconut oil which is better for you. So you re not doing the popcorn balls--with melted candy bars--that you discovered during your time away No But those were so-o-o-o-o good Those were my favorites. When did you begin to understand the impact that Real Housewives would have on your life I guess when my extended family came on the show-- my cousins my sister-in-law. I knew then it wasn t fun and games anymore. In the beginning I did the show for fun. And then it started becoming something ugly. That s not what I m about. To me family is the most important thing. But I guess you can t control other people s actions. Why was it important to you to write Turning the Tables Everyone thinks they know me from the show but that s just a part of me. I wanted to let them know more going back to my childhood. I wanted people to understand my background how I was raised. I wanted to peel the onion for people. Hopefully after reading my book people have a taste of who Teresa really is. What s the best part of having this kind of celebrity To tell you the truth I haven t really had a chance to enjoy it yet. We started the show and it was all new to us. Then my family came on the show and then all the legal stuff happened. I guess the best part was being able to write my books sharing my recipes and story with the world and becoming a New York Times bestselling author four times. I have such amazing fans and I m so grateful for them. One of your personal revelations while away involved the discovery of your inner Zen. How has that changed you I tried yoga here and there but I never understood its true meaning and what it can do for your mind. Yes it can make your body look amazing but it s [more than that]. So I started doing yoga and meditating--and I just love it. It keeps me grounded and very calm. I love the way it makes my body feel but I love more how it makes my mind feel. While I was away I did take a step back. I had time to analyze everything in my life. I had raised four children--two of my babies were 16 months apart-- and then the show came about. I was caught in this whirlwind there was a lot going on. And I had a lot of negative people around me. What is your relationship like with Andy Cohen (the entertainer and author is an executive producer of The Real Housewives series.) In the beginning I wasn t sure about him. It was hard for me because I was taking everything personally. But I realize that it s his job [to stir the pot] from time to time. I get that. Now I love him. Do you see yourself being more cautious about the people you bring into your circle Absolutely. I had a lot of bad people around me. Are you looking forward to the day when the show ends I m living in the moment. But I hope the show keeps going. LMGFL.COM NOVEMBER 2016 51 HEALING OUR HEROES with treatment to improve brain health BY MICHELLE F. SOLOMON R etired Staff Sgt. Geovanny Arroyo spent five years in active duty with the U.S. Army first with the 505th Parachute Infantry Regiment (part of the 82nd Airborne Division) and then in Iraq with the 124th Infantry. When he returned to Florida he remained with the U.S. Army Reserves until 2012. For a few years after his retirement Arroyo says he was reckless. I drank a little alcohol the Deerfield Beach resident says. Well I drank a lot of alcohol. I was drinking six days a week. I was trying to readjust but I was also feeling indestructible. I had survived a few ambushes I survived an IED [improvised explosive device] and a lot of close calls. So to come back and die in a car accident didn t seem like it could happen. Arroyo also was plagued by headaches anxiety and sleep deprivation. He always seemed angry irritated and annoyed. Numerous doctors told him that he was neurologically and physically in perfect condition even though he felt otherwise. So Arroyo turned to The 22 Project a nonprofit organization based in Delray Beach (support22project.org) founded in 2014 by Alex Cruz and his wife Erica to provide medical treatment for injured veterans and active-duty service members. The Cruzes who own Southeast Medical Imaging in Delray Beach began donating their imaging services after being approached by retired U.S. Marine Lt. Col. Antonio Colmenares in 2009. Colmenares had been working with veterans who had been receiving hyperbaric oxygen therapy treatments. He wanted access to brain scan images that could document the impact that the treatments were having on veterans brain health. The Cruzes scanned the brains of the first group that Colmenares brought to them. Within a few weeks the same Gulf War veterans returned--and the images of the brain were dramatically improved after the treatments Alex says. It was so encouraging. The treatment commonly known as HBOT delivers medical-grade oxygen to a person s pulmonary system while they are inside a pressurized chamber. It is used mostly to promote healing of wounds. It is considered a holistic treatment--one that encompasses the patient physically psychologically socially and spiritually-- when used for neurological disorders and is not currently considered a necessary medical treatment for neurological problems. Insurance coverage is uncommon for the treatments or the brain-imaging scans so far HBOT isn t standard care for veterans with brain injuries. In fact a study from the Department of Defense and Veterans Affairs says hyperbaric oxygen is ineffective at treating concussion-related injuries. But after undergoing 40 treatments through the 22 Project Arroyo couldn t disagree more. Within the first week and a half I felt more energetic he says. I could sleep better the sleep was deeper. I felt that I wasn t as irritable. The treatment runs for 40 days five days a week. Brain imaging scans track the progress. When we saw how much it was helping the veterans we decided to find a way to fund the treatments Alex says of the impetus behind The 22 Project. The Cruzes of Boca Raton hope to offer full services for Gulf War veterans with traumatic brain injuries. They have partnerships with physicians and psychiatrists for evaluations and they ve partnered with treatment centers in South Florida to provide HBOT and other therapies that improve cognitive psychiatric and neurological brain function. Veterans apply for a grant from The 22 Project to obtain the treatments. We want to be able to get this to more people Erica says. Two West Point cadets Adrian Shanahan and James Callan canoed 2 320 miles on the Mississippi River to support The 22 Project this summer. They were determined to raise the profile of the treatment. They received almost 12 000 through their GoFundMe page-- which happens to be the approximate cost of a full 40-course treatment. So far The 22 Project has funded treatment for 13 veterans over the past two years--but countless more are interested. And with good reason. Regrettably 22 veterans commit suicide every day Alex says referring to an often-cited figure taken from a 2012 VA study based on research between 1999 and 2010. They served our country and protected us and now it is our turn to serve and protect them. Our hope is to prevent other servicemen and women from being counted in this very sad statistic. As long as we have the funding we re willing to treat veterans. They deserve it.

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos says your personal brand is what people say about you when you re not in the room. While you can t always control what others say or even think you can certainly affect a person s perception of your professional skills especially online. With the saturation of and reliance upon the Internet and social media there is a wide variety of ways to enhance your reputation and personal brand. they search specific keywords. SEO is an important aspect of a marketing campaign if a potential client hears about you but can t find you online it s usually a deal breaker. 3. Get involved While it requires more effort than a simple Google search getting involved in a community organization connects you with other movers and shakers whom you might otherwise never meet. Examples of groups that cater to different audiences include local alumni associations Account Executive Boardroom Public Relations 1776 N. Pine Island Road Suite 320 Fort Lauderdale 33322 954-370-8999 BoardroomPR.com KELSEY DEAN 1. Actively promote yourself Don t be afraid to use your own social media accounts in equal amounts for your professional self-promotion and personal use. Your posts should reflect who you are as a person and as an expert in your field so don t be embarrassed about sharing professional wins or advice in addition to personal photos and commentary. Your brand is strongly tied to your personality and social media is an easy way to reach an audience of potential referrals or clients. Note Avoid being too sales-y. Remember that people connect with people and if you seem insincere your connections will be less likely to trust you. 2. Google yourself and your business Run an online search of your name and or your company. If you can t find what you re looking for or don t like what you see consider investing in a Search Engine Optimization (SEO) campaign. This will help search engines such as Google guide users to your website when nonprofit organizations and professional mentoring groups. Many of these organizations meet monthly and don t require a large time commitment but can be fulfilling personally and professionally. I am actively involved in certain groups and have found that the University of Florida Alumni Association s Broward Gator Club the Leadership Broward Foundation and the Public Relations Society of America s local chapter are three very different groups putting me in front of a variety of professionals with little overlap. The more you do the more you connect but even joining one group is extremely valuable. Building your personal brand requires effort and patience but the result can yield significant benefits. You ll be searchable and recognizable both elements that can lead to new business.

With scores of dive bars burger joints and seafood shacks nearby a place such as Hardy Park Bistro beyond its quaint-yetobscure design easily sticks out. Hardy Park Bistro is the progeny of internationally trained chef owner Philip Darmon and his wife Jessica Rossitto. Located near Florence C. Hardy Park it s the dining spot downtown Fort Lauderdale long needed--a laidback restaurant serving upscale eats. In this case it s a fusion of American Mediterranean and southeast Asian flavors. I always wanted to open a restaurant Darmon says. But I just didn t know what kind. I get really upset when I see chefs who spend 20 or 25 years getting really good at something and then going and doing something totally different. All that knowledge goes wasted. I knew I didn t want that. In the last 15 years Darmon transitioned from cooking in luxury restaurants in his native Australia to journeying the open ocean on megayachts as a chef. Summers in the Mediterranean and winters in the Caribbean became routine for Darmon. In 12 years he traveled the globe and rubbed shoulders with some of its most successful people. I come from an average family Darmon explains. So to be able to pick these people s brains was phenomenal. Through working with many Americans during my time on yachts I learned that they are really positive people. I just love that. As Darmon discovered a love for American culture he also began to call Fort Lauderdale home. Since the port city is one of the world s biggest yachting bases Darmon spent most of his downtime in South Florida which is where he met Jessica. I didn t get to go home to Australia much he says. But I d come to Fort Lauderdale every so often. Jessica and I both love it here and we understand the community well. Life as a yacht chef was grueling Darmon says. Most days he d work about 17 hours leaving little time for anything else. He searched for a new challenge and decided that he wanted to merge what he learned at sea with his dreams on land. The result is a restaurant heavily influenced by Darmon s culinary past featuring an infusion of dishes and ingredients that have piqued his interests over the years. It s Philip Darmon prepares crisp-skinned salmon with ratatouille and spinach. also one with a revolving menu options change weekly often with a smattering of new dishes that even his most loyal customers don t recognize. It s an evolution he says. It keeps it interesting. I hate being tied to [a menu] for three months. But there are two dishes that always remain The H.P.B burger and the chocolate mousse. The burger is stacked with a slice of cheddar cheese crisp onion and a smear of homemade tomato chutney. The mousse is made from scratch too with a touch of pillowy cream on the side. We re in America you need a burger on the menu he says. And the mousse is just delicious. Darmon and his team pride themselves on making nearly everything in-house. They peel and slice each potato to make a day s worth of French fries and they create ice cream and sorbet concoctions to complement dessert. The product you make from scratch is far superior than what you get from a can he says. We also have an open kitchen so our customers can watch us the whole time. We don t hide anything. Recent dishes include beef tartare with a single fried quail egg grilled corvina drizzled with arugula pesto and a broccoli leek and gorgonzola dinner. Broward County s food scene is just starting he says. It s getting better but doesn t have decades of knowing good food either. It s exciting being here.
