Miami - Not Only For the Young and Beautiful

There are many reasons people flock to Miami. The weather is to die for, the culture is diverse and it is just -- well, cool. Some of the biggest celebs have been drawn to the region, from the rich to the notorious: Gloria Estefan, Jennifer Lopez, Madonna, Rosie O'Donnell, Hulk Hogan, Lenny Kravitz, Matt Damon, Sylvester Stallone, Robin Gibb, Shaquille O’Neal, and fashion icon Gianni Versace.

Before O.J. Simpson became a full-time resident of Lovelock Correctional Center in Nevada, he ran off to Miami when he was no longer welcome in the tony Brentwood neighborhood on the west side of L.A.

The only other place that seems to have as many celebs is L.A. But Miami is said to be more accessible than Los Angeles. In fact, Barry Gibb of music group Bee Gees fame also lives in Miami and is said to be quite welcoming. Although… that could be because he comes from the U.K.

For us regular folk, Miami can be quite the pricey excursion. And the same holds true for businesses. That's why so many firms choose to have virtual offices. No longer are they just cloud services. Today, you can get much more since they include physical locations like in prime downtown Miami where offices start at only $55! If you have any idea what real estate costs down there -- and renting commercial or residential space - you know that's a bargain!

And look what you get for that - a hotsy totsy address with a receptionist - not just a mail box where stuff is dropped off. And you can use private day offices from as little as $10 to $35 an hour. Conference rooms start at only $25. And you can come for a tour in person before you sign on the virtual dotted line.

Makes it real easy to play big shot, doesn't it? Like the rich and famous say: “Fake it till you make it!” So what are you waiting for? Come play in Miami - it's a great tax write-off!
