Attorney Todd Levine Shares What He Wishes He Knew Earlier In His Career

Attorney Todd Levine is a Miami area attorney who specializes in complex legal cases involving property disputes. He has represented people in the real estate industry such as property developers, property managers, lending institutions, contractors, sellers, and buyers.

He says knowing what he knows now he would have become known earlier in his career for his legal specialty. Todd Levine says that if you can quickly find a legal specialty that you love and become the go-to specialist for it you’ll have clients coming to you rather than the other way around. He learned this eventually but feels it really would have helped out if he had this information from the start.

When preparing for a case he always writes an outline of any brief or legal argument he will make the case for. Like being an author an outline helps to collect thoughts in an organized fashion. It also helps him get to the points he will be making in a logical, clear, and concise manner. He can spot any holes in his legal arguments and prepare to address them in the briefs he will file.

Todd Levine says that like in any customer-facing position an attorney needs to be very attentive to what their clients are saying. He really does care about his clients and how their legal cases will be resolved. He makes himself available to his clients by responding to them within 24 hours at the latest. It is this attitude that he credits for helping him get most of his business through client referrals.

He is one of the co-founders of Kluger, Kaplan, Silverman, Katzen & Levine P.L. Todd Levine says that like just about every other industry technology increasingly plays a role in how efficiently and productively his law firm can operate. They use mainly Eclipse and Westlaw at their practice.

Krishen Iyer: Digital Marketing Challenges Facing Marketers and Consumers

Krishen Iyer is the CEO and Founder of Managed Benefits Services which he founded in 2016. He initially named the company Quick Link Marketing, which he later rebranded to focus on the health and dental insurance companies and service providers. Krishen Iyer is a graduate from the San Diego State University, with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Public Administration. As a digital marketer, Krishen affirms that both the marketers and the consumers face challenges with digital technologies.


While the consumers face compatibility related issues and challenges of how to use various devices, marketers face different problems altogether. With the rising popularity of voice command recognition, marketers have to work an extra mile to promote their products. Different products associate themselves with various advantages. This may vary according to color, durability, cost and other distinguishing factors. When a consumer orders a product online, the user account keeps records of the product and produces the same brand when the consumer orders in the future. The user can only change the brand preference if they prefer another brand based on the distinguishing factors.


Krishen Iyer’s experience growing in multiple marketing companies was a critical factor in developing effective strategies to influence markets and even launch his own marketing company. Besides giving consumers the general overview of a product’s features, Krishen Iyer advises companies to research their target markets, identify consumers’ needs and then make a product that satisfies that need. The company must also be in a position to make the consumers choose their product by specifying how different it is from the other products in the market. Marketers must find ways to appeal to various markets lack of which the competitors get the lead. When selling products online, marketers should also be cautious about the appearance of their product. For instance, with a group of shoppers in need of a glass cleaner, some will recognize the color of a product as the distinguishing factor.

Whitney Wolfe-Feminist of the Dating Scene

     From the very beginning of her business career, Whitney Wolfe has been a promoter for bettering peoples lives. At the age of 19, she started making a difference for areas effected by the BP Oil spill by selling bamboo tote bags. A small kindness turned into a blossoming non-profit organization called, “Help Us Project”. Her continuing need to help others took her to Southeast Asia where she dedicated her time with orphans. Eventually her business decisions led her to start a dating app with a special purpose.

A Movement of an App

Whitney Wolfe doesn’t view Bumble as just another dating app, but as a movement. A chance for men and women to treat each other, to view themselves differently, and to view dating in a different way. Finding your perfect match is as easy as swiping right or left. But this time, the women are in control. When there is a mutual attraction, it’s a match. However, it is up to the women to make the first move. With a countdown of 24 hours before the match expires, it doesn’t leave much time for worrying or over thinking.

Beauty and the Bumble

The purpose of Bumble is to empower women. In Whitney Wolfe’s observation, she sees that most bullying for girls happens through social media. In wanting to start an open conversational app which let girls converse freely, she was reminded that her expertise was in the dating industry. So she created an app that could do both. Be a successful dating app yet at the same time promote feminism.

Success it’s Finest

Elle Magazine named Whitney Wolfe as one of Elle’s Women in Tech in 2016.

Also, in 2014, Whitney Wolfe was named one of Business Insider’s 30 Most Important Women Under 30 in Tech.
