SUMMER 2018 Edition,
including an extensive SUMMER CAMP GUIDE!

HAPPY 4TH OF July!!!

I have the honor of being the 2018 Chair of the Key Biscayne Chamber of Commerce. I am very passionate about supporting and advocating for our local businesses. We are blessed to live on an Island with world class amenities, restaurants and merchants. 

As a life-long resident and Realtor on Key Biscayne, I love sharing upcoming events and Interesting activities offered around our community for the residents and frequent visitors of our Island  Paradise.

My father, Federico Padovan, moved our family (including grandparents) to Key Biscayne in 1973. I was raised  on the Island and left briefly to earn a BFA degree at NYU. But my heart was always here so I returned to my Island Paradise home where I am raising 4th generation Key Biscayners with my husband Donnie Hall. 

To read more about me, 
We also have three lovely contributors sharing their insights as well! Please see their monthly articles at the bottom of each newsletter. 
I want to sincerely THANK all of you for the wonderful feedback and interest in participating in our Newsletter 
over the  last 2 years. See you in September!!!

Wynwood Art Walk has become one of the most iconic events in Miami. It takes place on the second Saturday of each and every month.

Craft beer, another phenomenal trend, has its South Florida roots in Wynwood. And there are many things that Wynwood has been a leader in. For the most part, Wynwood is ahead of the curve. As always, Art Walk is free and open to the public. This is not an exclusive event, but an inclusive event. Come as you are. You are welcome.


Guests will enjoy delicious culinary delights and specially crafted cocktails, great music, and will have private access to X Miami, overlooking Miami's skyline while celebrating why Miami is the best!

The Magic, Illusion & Unbelievable Truth of Youth League Sports
Looking at the culture of Youth League Sports and the relationship between adults and children is merely a microcosm of the misunderstanding adults have about what children need. The reasons why parents and coaches are miscommunicating and the impacts of these misunderstandings are exposed in this book. There are valid reasons why we have gotten it wrong for so long. There is layer upon layer of illusions illustrated within these pages that explain why it is we can not see the truth. It is as if a grand Magician is performing the perfect illusion yet the magician turns out to be us and we don't even know it. 

The Magic, Illusion and Unbelievable truth details over 40 assumptions based perceptions, that cause Coaches and Parents to believe they are doing the right and the best thing for children. And the Unbelievable truth that despite the mountain of data, years of science made available to the public that proves that we are not close to doing the right or best by our children, we still due to these illusions, continue to behave in ways that do more harm than help. 

This book details the history of Youth Sports, back to a time when we did do the right and best thing for children, through the period of when we changed our focus and things began to go wrong. It looks at various models used over the past 150 years of youth league sports. And it highlights the ongoing debate between specialization versus diversification. 

We use resources from over 150 sources- research, polls, studies, expert opinions, articles written by the leading experts in child sports interaction. These studies are backed by some of the biggest institutions in the world. From Ivy League schools to the Carnegie Insititute. Michigan State University, George Washington University, and the University of Calgary are merely three of the dozens that have public reports that were used for the making of this book. The Aspen Insititute, the Women's Sports Foundation and a number of US Goverment departments also make up much of the content of this book. This book is NOT opinion based. It is fact-based. And the unbelievable truth is that even with facts, people we still choose to do the wrong thing and even more unbelievable is that they will choose the wrong thing for their children. This shocking almost absurd truth flies in the face of how we would imagine parents behave. As parents, we want the best for our children yet, in general, we seem ill-prepared to be parents and certainly, we are misguided about how to direct our children when it comes to many areas of their life including youth sports. 

The good news is that there are proven effective methods available to us, and we have many examples that go all the way back to the birth of youth sports to guide us. Today there places in the world where massive change has occurred and the results have been magical. A good kind of Magical. 

So come find out what we are doing wrong and how we can do better by our children. Pick up a copy of the Magic, Illusion & Unbelievable Truth of Youth League Sports and help us change our behavior for the better.

(reposted from Summer/2017)

Summer is Here...
As kids, we all looked forward to summer break. It was a time to not be scheduled and to just relax. As adults, unless we are teachers, we do not live life in semesters. We do not necessarily have 10 weeks off of work. Take the time this summer to decompress even if you job doesn't end on June 21st.

With longer days:
Take time after work to walk the beach.
Try a new activity: golf, yoga, art class, martial arts.
Make plans with friends after work since the schedule is lighter with children out of school or away at camp.
Visit Miami museums.
Cook those meals that take too long on a school night and dine with your family.
Find a night time activity with your children, such as game night or movie night, since there is no homework, and their bedtime may be later.
Whatever it may be, take some time to relax and recharge over the summer. Many work schedules are a bit lighter, the days are longer, and the feeling is more relaxed during the summer. Enjoy it!

Perspective v. Circumstance

How are you living your life? If you're allowing your circumstances to navigate your perspective you've got it all backwards. Indeed, our perspective dictates our circumstances.
     This is a concept we often have difficulty wrapping our heads around because we are used to living in a reactive state. My life sucks, therefore I am unhappy. My life is wonderful, therefore I am happy. Energetically, however, it doesn't work that way and once we master that concept we begin to enjoy our lives in delicious and unprecedented ways.
     You see, the universe always mirrors back to us in experience whatever lens we decide to put on. Regardless of the situation at hand, if we make the effort to look at life through a lens of optimism, by law of attraction, better circumstances magnetically come our way. We unequivocally experience what we perceive so flipping around our thinking can render favorable and satisfying results.
     Make it a point this summer and beyond to give yourself the gift of a new pair of sunglasses that help you live your life according to a sunny outlook. You have nothing to lose except conceivably a better experience altogether. Summer is a great time to reenergize and refresh the soul. You will savor life according to whatever viewpoint you choose. Make it a bright one!

Your Part in Changing the World
I wake up often and I'm shocked over the words, sentiments and engagement of humans on social media. More than ever before, I don't understand the world as it currently stands. In an apparent view of ripped apart chaos held by fragments of humanity, it's the best time to set an intention to unify and form a stronger community.
With so many women on the forefront of so much these days, I am honored and proud of them all. What an amazing time we live in, in contrast of the days when we had no vote, no say and no voice. I think about the decades of women fighting for what, in daily form, we take for granted.
I wonder what they would say about women now in 2018. I wonder if they would be happy to see so many women serving in greater ways and leaving their impacting mark. I wonder if they would smile seeing women helping one another in business with embracing arms.
In retrospective thought and towards the other end of the spectrum, I wonder if they would shudder and cringe as to the way some women continuously judge other women.
Each barrage of negative comments from women to other women, breaks down the fiber of what our past sisters worked so hard to achieve. Each time a woman chats negatively about another woman for what she wore, how she danced, how her hair looked, a bit of our feministic soul dies.
As we gain more traction in breaking society imposed glass ceilings, I would love for us to commit to simply not engaging in conversations that bring down other women. If it is a statement that doesn't lift up another woman, does it need to be shared internally and externally? Where is community and unification in that behavior?
With the election, religion, race and economic differences at the hot spot of conversation, let's remove the blanket of differences and focus on the component that unifies us. Whether we are white, brown, tall, not so tall or wear a hijab, we are still one. Whether we have three kids, no kids, 5 cats or no dogs, we are still one.
Let's focus on the beauty of us all as a collective representation of the love that still exists in this world. As we reach out to one another more than ever before, it will inspire others do to the same. It starts with you.

We invite you to visit  daily for the best advice and inspiration. Be sure to connect with your local FemCity community and attend one of our FEM Marketplaces, too [a.k.a. Girls' Night Out Events]. We know firsthand what it's like to be in business for yourself, and the kinds of bumps you might encounter along the way. FemCity was specifically designed to make your journey less turbulent and to help you "have it all" (insert your own definition here).
