We are going to use this space to talk about some of the things I see from my seat behind the mic on Thursdays at 5 p.m. on 880 AM.
While my business focus is real estate, my radio show gives me a chance to interact with people from across the business and social spectrum. This month I want to focus on three of my recent guests that are truly important to South Florida: Gil Dezer, Lauren Book and Dr. Ashwin Mehta.
Gil is a second-generation developer from Sunny Isles Beach Florida. He has perfected the super-luxury condo niche. Gil has developed some of the most extraordinary condominiums in Miami. His concepts allow him to attract some of the wealthiest buyers in the world.
He has joint ventures with some of the world’s most recognized super luxury retail brands: Porsche, Armani and Hyde Hotels. He has joint ventured with some of the biggest brands in the development world as well – Trump and Related Group. Gil also has a great sense of humor and searches for adventure every year when he participates in the Gumball 3000 Road Rally.
Lauren Book is simply an everyday hero for all of us. Her daily crusade to help protect children has taken her all over the world. Recently named one of L�Oreal’s Women of Worth, Lauren is an example for the worldwide community. Lauren was molested by her housekeeper for years, and her message now is that 95 percent of child sexual abuse can be prevented by education. Her story and message is one of strength and inspiration. I look forward to again supporting Lauren’s Kids Walk in My Shoes 2014 and working with her in the community to present her ideas to South Florida’s youngest and most vulnerable residents.
Dr. Ashwin Mehta is a blessing for us all. As Medical Director for Integrative Medicine at the University of Miami’s Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center, Mehta brings together medical concepts from across the centuries. His emphasis on mindfulness adds to his effectiveness. Dr. Mehta is on the cutting-edge of medicine. He combines empathy and creativity to bring people back from the brink as they recover from cancer chemotherapy and other tough medical situations.
