Corporations — Breach of contract — Jurisdiction — Minimum contacts — Trial court incorrectly concluded that foreign corporation had sufficient minimum contacts with Florida to justify the exercise of personal jurisdiction based on finding that foreign corporation sought out resident corporation’s brokerage services, conducted substantial communications with resident corporation for purposes of receiving brokerage services, and partially performed its obligations in Florida by making payments in Florida — Evidence did not establish that contract between the parties was a contract for services — Although foreign corporation routinely contacted resident corporation, routine contact, in and of itself, is not enough — Foreign corporation must have actively monitored resident corporation’s procurement of goods on foreign corporation’s behalf and/or otherwise engaged themselves in resident corporation’s procurement of the goods
