2017 Sportsman's MBA

          You're always trying to replace that feeling that you have as a  

          professional athlete, and then you realize after two, three, four

          years that you're never going to replace it. There's nothing that's

          going to give you the same feeling you had jumping on the backs

          of your teammates or shaking hands after a win or any of those

          kinds of things. You're just not going to find it.


          That's when I guess you say to yourself, OK, well, you know what?

          I've been blessed with a time. But now it's a new time. I think

          that's the hardest part for all ex-athletes is just figuring out,

          what can you do? What can you do other than play ball?

This year, John B. Kern International Law launched a program designed to allow professional athletes to gain a foothold on planning and managing their post-competition careers. The average football career is just 3.5 years; basketball  5 years and baseball 5.6 years. Mr. Kern and the Sportsman's MBA co-sponsors believe that more needs to be done to prepare professional athletes for their futures, after they stop competing.


This off-season seminar lasts for five days and allows personalized attention to the specific post-competition career needs and interests of athletes. Registration is limited to 28 seats per session. Spouses are invited to participate.


The first cycle of this intensive program will be held on two continents, in order to allow athletes from around the world to participate. These include:

           * Europe Edition: Aug. 13th -- 18th, 2017 in Salzburg, Austria

           * US Edition: Aug. 27th - Sept. 1st, 2017 in Dallas, Texas.


Focused and small-group sessions are to be held on topics ranging from personal and professional skill development, business communications, industry insights and prudent investment strategies. Participants will gain new perspective on their professional opportunities and potential.


The Sportsman's MBA does not constitute "legal services" or "professional employment" to be delivered by Mr. Kern.  Rather, it is an educational program addressing a decision-making approach to business and personal financial matters that may be encountered by athletes at the conclusion of their athletic careers.
