Today we're excited to share a presentation by Jess Birken from MaxLawCon 2021! Tune in to learn more about delegating more effectively.Jess is the former CEO & Managing Partner at Urban Birken PLLC, a boutique firm that specialized in serving the nonprofit community. She has worked with nonprofit organizations for most of her career. Before becoming a private practice attorney, she spent four years inside a national nonprofit organization, Pheasants Forever.She worked her way through law school and had the beginnings of a promising career in criminal law after graduation. However, Jess quickly realized that going to court is depressing! In court, the toothpaste is out of the tube and you're just trying to clean up the mess. Her colleagues reassured her that she would become callous and get used to the grim reality. But she thought that sounded like a terrible personal outcome and decided she needed to change course. Jess really missed the nonprofit sector. As a result, She went back to grad school and earned a Masters in Nonprofit Management. She rejoined the nonprofit sector through her work with Pheasants Forever where her role was a marriage of attorney work and federal grant management and administration. Since that time, Jess has run her own firms and is now the owner of Birken Law Office a firm designed to help nonprofits.1:16 there are some things that suck4:05 you know this drill7:12 the two Bobs from corporate10:02 why is this all worth it14:28 in managing your inbox17:03 it's too weirdWatch the podcast here.Join the Guild: www.maxlawguild.com

Two years in MBA school won't teach you how to double the market's return. Two hours with The Little Book That Beats the Market will. In The Little Book , Joel Greenblatt, Founder and Managing Partner at Gotham Capital (with average annualized returns of 40% for over 20 years), does more than simply set out the basic principles for successful stock market investing. He provides a "magic formula" that is easy to use and makes buying good companies at bargain prices automatic. Though the formula has been extensively tested and is a breakthrough in the academic and professional world, Greenblatt explains it using 6th grade math, plain language and humor. You'll learn how to use this low risk method to beat the market and professional managers by a wide margin. You'll also learn how to view the stock market, why success eludes almost all individual and professional investors, and why the formula will continue to work even after everyone "knows" it. This description may be from another edition of this product.

This was the largest insurance-linked securities conference in the world since our last in Feb 2020, prior to the pandemic.

This was the fourth session of the conference and featured a lively debate on the topic of responsible investing and what that means for insurance-linked securities. The panel discussed the fact the ILS asset class already provides responsible protection and so responsible investment opportunities, but how can this be built on and expanded in the coming years, and also asked what climate and ESG mean in the context of ILS investment strategies. This session was moderated by: Tom Johansmeyer, Head of PCS, Verisk Insurance Solutions.

There's nothing wrong with that. There's plenty of good big shops that you can invest with and get good returns. But if you want to do this actively you're going to need relationships. This is a very relationship driven business and networking is, great. And one way that worked for me at least to network and build relationships was to invest passively with other operators first. [00:00:33] Sam Wilson: Bernard Pierson has been in real estate for 10 years. He started off in development and has since transitioned to full-time multifamily investing and syndication. Bernard, welcome to the show. [00:00:43] Bernard Pierson: Thanks, Sam. Happy to be here. [00:00:44] Sam Wilson: Hey, the pleasure's mine. There's three questions I ask every guys who comes to the show: in 90 seconds or less, can you tell me, where did you start? Where are you now? And how did you get there? [00:00:52] Bernard Pierson: I started in, I used to do food brokering. That was basically, I mean, I had a job out of college for, W2 for one year, but right into, you know, pretty soon I, I quit. I was an accounting job. I was bored out of my mind, so I quit. So I like to say I started off with food brokering, which is kind of like my entrepreneurial path that I took. We did pretty well. [00:01:11] Bernard Pierson: Very transactional. And I figured that out pretty quickly. And that's how I found real estate and ended up partnering with some guys that, great guys, great partners that had experience. And that's how I got into development. And we did some developments in Latin America specifically Nicaragua and Costa Rica. [00:01:29] Bernard Pierson: And I've then transitioned over the last five years or so, just a full-time multifamily investing in the US. Because I found out that there was a lot of risk and a lot of things that I was not thinking about before that Latin America exposed us to basically. So yeah. I think that was around 90 seconds. [00:01:48] Sam Wilson: No, I think that was perfect. Well done. Thank you. Yeah. Food brokering. Can you, that doesn't mean anything to me. I'm just really curious. Can you give me a ten second highlight? What does that mean? [00:01:59] Bernard Pierson: Yeah. So we would source the suppliers and, find buyers for beef. We get coffee, we did sugar. I'm from, I'm a half in Nicaraguan, part Nicaraguan part American. And I, I grew up in Nicaragua a lot of my life. I lived there from like six years old to 18. So I, just know a lot of people, it's a small country. It's a very agricultural country and a lot of food production. So that's how I got into that. [00:02:23] Sam Wilson: Got it very, very cool. [00:02:25] Bernard Pierson: Very transactional though 'cause it was, it was based on finding the seller and the buyer. And as technology, you know, and globalization has grown, the value of being that intermediary is, is not as, as valuable, I guess, anymore. So we used to have a transaction here and there where, and we used to make a lot of money on the transaction or good money. But it was very transactional. We weren't really building a, a sustainable long term business that would work without us being there. [00:02:49] Sam Wilson: Let's jump into the next section of your story there. Developing in Latin America, it sounded like there were some risks or some lessons you learned the hard way. [00:03:00] Bernard Pierson: Oh yeah. There's two reason. I ended up going back to Latin in America. So when I was 18, I came to the US. I lived here for a long time. But when I got back into real estate, there was two things I was looking for. One was partnering with someone who had experience. [00:03:12] Bernard Pierson: So development, in my case, checked that box. My partners or my potential partners at the time had experience developing for many years in, in Latin America. And the other thing was going, in my case, I was going back to Nicaragua, originally, at least at the beginning. And this was home, right? [00:03:29] Bernard Pierson: It was a place I knew a lot of people. I knew my, the area very well. So I checked those two boxes. I was local to Nicaragua and, and I had partners with experience. The part I missed was Latin America can bring money risks that we, we just aren't aware of here in the US and those are specifically going to be politically and, or just political risk. And just the economy in itself is not as robust as it is here. Investments are going to be a lot less liquid. There's just a lot more risk in general. And I did a lot of research into that at that time, right? And I really found out that risk adjusted return, at least for me, or from my point of view or the analysis I did was a lot better in the US than in Latin America. [00:04:15] Sam Wilson: Right. So if I'm hearing you, right, you're saying that there was, you were taking on a lot of additional risk without the additional return that would be involved in assuming that additional risk. Was this something, when you were doing these development projects, is that where you cut your teeth in raising capital and bringing in outside investors? [00:04:33] Bernard P
