Taxfyle, a Miami-based tech startup heralded as the "Uber" of the tax accounting industry, is the latest example of how the Sunshine State's tax incentives and today's gig economy benefit South Florida residents, businesses and workers alike. In this episode, Taxfyle CEO and co-founder Richard Lavina explains why these tax benefits are helping South Florida attract, grow and nurture more and more companies like his. We also talked about how Taxfyle works and how users can spend less time worrying about taxes and more time enjoying life. During the conversation we talked about:  The tax benefits of living in Florida? The benefits of starting a company in Florida, specifically South Florida? Is Miami a good place for raising funds as a startup and ultimately a cheaper place to utilize those funds? What is Taxfyle? And how did it become the "Uber of Taxes?" About Richard Lavina: CEO & Co-Founder - TAXFYLE  Upon graduating from the University of Miami in 2009, Ricky went on to work at a local CPA firm in Coral Gables before being hired as an auditor at PwC. While working at PwC, he obtained his Master of Accounting from FIU and was struck by the inspiration to start Taxfyle. Since then, Ricky has taken Taxfyle from a simple thought to a venture-backed startup that has one of the Big Four accounting firms as a client. TAXFYLE, is one of the most downloaded tax apps on the Apple store every year.  It's often described as the "Uber of Taxes" as they have 1300 licensed CPA's available through their app available at any moment to do your taxes.  But they also do so much more. They are the secret weapon of some of the largest accounting firms in the country that want to shed their old school ways and be more modern for our tech centric world.  Those companies use TAXFYLE, their app, their network, and their ideas to change the pace and output of their organization. Taxfyle has gone from a small idea, to a now 40 person full time staff based in Coral Gables, FL.  Founded by two Miami natives, Taxfyle is shaping the future of work by retooling the world’s multibillion-dollar professional services industry, changing how services are delivered and who they are performed by.  You can learn more at taxfyle.com. CEO Richard Lavina is literally leading the charge of the future of work.  A task that used to take months and cost thousands ("taxes") can literally be done in hours and cost hundreds.  It's why TAXFYLE is one of the most talked about Tax apps/companies in the country.

Miami has clearly evolved into a thriving financial center, global gateway, hub for world class arts and culture, destination for education and healthcare, tourism juggernaut, and wellspring of prime waterfront residential real estate ... and yet, until recently, the city’s relationship with the Asian market has been limited. The reasons for this include regional unfamiliarity with Miami, lingering misconceptions of the “Miami Vice” era and the absence of direct flights from South Florida to East Asia. However, key factors indicate the dawn of a sweeping Asian-influenced era in South Florida. How did we arrive here? And more important, what does it mean for South Florida and Miami’s economic growth? J.C. Caceres, President of the Asian Real Estate Association of America's Greater Miami Chapter, joins us on the podcast to explain.  About JC Caceres: For over 24 years, I have been passionate about South Florida real estate. During my extensive career, I have  seen Miami and surrounding areas evolve from vacation destinations to full-fledged international capitals of business, finance, the arts, and culture. Along the way, I have also established one of South Florida’s strongest real estate networks. “Having purchased homes in this market myself, I am always thinking of ways to help buyers successfully take advantage of the ever-growing popularity and value available in South Florida. I believe it’s my ability to see the situation through my clients’ eyes that has helped me create so many customers for life. Before embarking on his real estate career, I spent over 13 years in management at United Parcel Service. There, I worked throughout different centers in the region and had great opportunities to get to know and work with many wonderful people and business owners. As well, I also successfully ran a restaurant's business in Miami for several years. It was during these positions that I perfected my talent for listening to others’ objectives and presenting effective and efficient solutions – skills that I continue to use today with my real estate clientele. “I enjoy bringing people together in situations that can  benefit everyone involved.  When I represent a client, I make the extra effort to completely and fully analyze their needs. This allows me to not only meet their expectations and protect their best interests, but also identify the best-possible properties that may exist through the right kinds of connections. Originally from Bogota, Colombia, I been living in South Florida for a long-time where I am a resident and in the Miami area. My current focus is on residential properties throughout Miami-Dade and Broward and Orlando counties with a concentration on “great opportunities and deals that offer the best return, value, or match for each individual client.” I hold a Bachelor’s degree in International Business and Global Management from Florida International University (FIU) and is a member of the Realtor Association of Miami, the Florida Association of Realtors, and the National Association of Realtors. Whenever possible, I make it a point of supporting the local community through various non-profit organizations as well as local PTA’s for his children’s schools.

En este episodio Alicia Cervera Lamadrid, una de las broker mas influyentes en el mercado inmobiliario de Miami, nos habla del el estado actual del mercado y las perspectivas a futuro de nuestra ciudad Miami.  Sobre Alicia Cervera Lamadrid: Alicia Cervera Lamadrid nació en La Habana, fue criada en Miami, y viene de una familia cuyo nombre familiar es sinónimo de lujosos terrenos. Creció en un ambiente de bienes raíces ya que ambos padres estaban en este negocio (Alicia Cervera Sr. fundó Cervera Real Estate, la primera empresa inmobiliaria de Miami que se especializa en ventas a desarrolladores). Cervera Lamadrid se unió a la empresa de su madre a principios de la década de 1980, donde, con el tiempo, dejó su marca representando lujosos condominios como The Imperial, Villa Regina y Bristol Towers en la famosa Brickell Avenue. Ocupó diferentes funciones y aprendió el negocio desde su base. Aunque haya ingresado al mundo de las propiedades de miles de millones de dólares debido a lazos familiares, fue su visión para los negocios, su capacidad de innovación y su trato personal, que la mantuvieron entre las mayores protagonistas de la industria. En el año 2000, después de varios años de representar exitosamente a los desarrolladores más importantes de Miami, Related Group invitó a Cervera Real Estate a unir fuerzas. El resultado fue Related Cervera Realty Services (RCRS). En solo diez años, bajo el liderazgo de Cervera Lamadrid, el corretaje inmobiliario de servicio completo vendió más de 14.600 unidades, representando más de $6,8 mil millones. Cuando el mercado comenzó a cambiar en 2008, Cervera Lamadrid logro que sus equipos cerraran ventas a desarrolladores por un valor superior a $720 millones.  En 2011, Cervera Lamadrid fue nombrada socia directora de Cervera Real Estate y, junto con el liderazgo de la empresa, encabezó el esfuerzo de expandir la base de la empresa. Apasionada por las propiedades inmobiliarias, Cervera Lamadrid continúa predicando con el ejemplo, satisfaciendo las necesidades de los clientes desarrolladores y asistiendo a los socios en transacciones individuales y mayoristas. Hoy, Cervera Lamadrid supervisa ventas inmobiliarias de pre-construcción y de “General Real Estate” que exceden los $4,5 mil millones.

Paulo Bacchi CEO da Artefacto conta a Mariana Lima como foi sua decisão de mudar para os Estados Unidos, o que isso significou para o crescimento da empresa, e para sua vida pessoal. Paulo Bacchi: Mais do que o sucesso, comemorar os 40 anos da Artefacto é homenagear o trabalho feito em equipe. É celebrar este aniversário junto com todos os colaboradores que fazem parte da nossa história. Gente que vence as dificuldades, que supera barreiras, que vibra quando abrimos uma nova loja ou lançamos uma nova coleção. É festejar ao lado de parceiros, arquitetos, designers de interiores, paisagistas e clientes. Gente que esteve e está ao nosso lado durante todo esse tempo. Nosso sucesso está baseado no trabalho em grupo, tal qual uma orquestra. Isso é o mais importante. Fazer 40 anos é ter orgulho de conservar nosso DNA em desenvolver produtos feitos à mão, como diz o nosso nome: Artefacto. E, ao mesmo tempo, nessa jornada, de se renovar e ser reconhecida pela qualidade de nosso mobiliário. De ser uma marca brasileira, com identidade própria e padrão internacional, integrada no mundo contemporâneo. Desde que assumi a direção da Artefacto, reservamos para esse momento de comemoração o lançamento de uma coleção 100% sob minha curadoria. Esse foi o tempo que levamos para fazer uma renovação total de nossa linha de produtos. Uma coleção essencialmente moderna, baseada nas experiências de vida que as pessoas têm: um pouco do cubismo italiano, do chique francês, da delicadeza das linhas asiáticas, tudo misturado com o nosso tempero brasileiro. Uma coleção feita para pessoas que vivem em um mundo globalizado, de gente que tem um repertório internacional e que leva essa experiência para dentro de casa. Uma coleção renovada, com design atual e novas técnicas de produção, mas que preserva a manufatura com o uso de fibras naturais, o algodão, o linho, a lã… Produtos mais elegantes, mais delicados, mais confortáveis. Tenho orgulho de estar à frente de uma empresa brasileira que exporta mais do que produtos: nós da Artefacto vendemos estilo. Nos últimos 15 anos consolidamos nossa marca na Flórida. E isso é muito importante neste momento em que comemoramos 40 anos de história: o de levar brasilidade mundo afora. Parabéns Artefacto!

Nearly 60 years since she and her husband fled Cuba amidst political turmoil and arrived penniless in Miami, visionary real estate pioneer, Alicia Cervera Sr. – otherwise known as the “Queen of Brickell” and “Grand Dame of Miami Real Estate” – shares, for the first time, the 7-keys to selling pre-construction that have powered her success for five decades.     For those of you who are not familiar with her, Alicia is the founder and chairman of Cervera Real Estate and has participated in every Miami real estate cycle since she founded the company in 1969. Alongside her daughters, Veronica Cervera Goeseke and Alicia Cervera Lamadrid, the Cervera name has exclusively represented and sold more than 115 condominiums across the region – representing billions in sales – and revitalized neighborhoods, including Brickell, downtown Miami, Edgewater, and Miami Beach’s famed “South of Fifth.”  Alicia is credited for pioneering the modern-day model for development sales and marketing, having opened Miami’s door to the global broker community, and in the process, single-handedly proved that the American dream is alive and well here in the “Magic City.” For these reasons – in 2016, the Mayor of Miami declared October 18th “Alicia Cervera Day in the City of Miami,” proclaiming that “no woman has had a larger impact on the development of Miami since Julia Tuttle founded the city in 1895.” October 18, 2018 marks the two year anniversary of this special date and the eve of Cervera’s 50 year anniversary, which finally helped us wrangle Alicia onto the show for a rare and candid interview that proved to be equal parts inspirational and insightful.
