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.
Plans are underway for the 2018 edition of the Sportsman's MBA, with one edition in Europe this year. We are examining the best location to assist our clients.
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 program 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.
