THE AVENTURA TENNIS GUYS
Contributed by The Honorable Bob Diamond
According to medical experts, exercising regularly, maintaining social relationships and engaging the mind, leads to a longer, healthier life.

Youngest member of the Aventura Marketing Council…….3 year-old Ben Cohen
Talk about starting them early! AMC member Yoav Cohen (Genesis Media) was so pleased with his membership in the Aventura Marketing Council that he decided to invest in a membership for his 3 year-old son, Ben. “Ben has already been around the world and is very astute for his age. He loves accompanying me on business trips, so this was a natural!” said Yoav.
So does that mean that Ben, dressed in his suit and tie, will be attending AMC meetings? “I just may take him to one or two meetings! I believe parents have a responsibility to not only introduce their children to our world of new technology, but to also understand the importance of meeting people –face-to-face—and developing a personal working relationship, ” noted Yoav.
With Ben’s membership, the AMC can now say that “…..we have members from age 3 to 90!”. Ben is a pre-schooler at Hochberg Preparatory School at Beth Torah, and is about to begin piano lessons. Dr. Linda Marks, Director of the school, said, “Ben, the youngest child in his classroom, is already exhibiting natural leadership skills. At Hochberg Preparatory School, we work to develop all of the strengths of a child like Ben. Because he is dynamic, bright and inquisitive, we look forward to watching him through his school years, and beyond, as he grows into a dynamic young adult!’
