This Month's Program:

We have been told business is a zero-sum game. For someone to win, someone else must lose. But this often leads to a cutthroat rivalry amongst professionals. Bitter and needlessly acrimonious, it not only hurts competitors, but it also makes things tougher for the end client/customer.

Now, what if there was a better way?

This is the promise of Coopertition. Employing a beneficial positive sum mentality, it demonstrates the beauty and mutual advantage of benevolent collaboration—amongst collaborators for the benefit of all.

Knowing today’s professionals are running 100 miles an hour in every conceivable direction trying to be all things to their stakeholders, the content is chock full of sagacious advice—yet written in pithy, punchy chapters so you can absorb the info on the go.

Structured from A-Z with each letter representing a key insight, it presents memorable and instructive stories illustrating the concept of reaching across the aisle to work with one’s ‘rival’—especially when the result is better service for the customer/client.

Undoubtedly, we live in an unprecedented age in which all bets are off. Thinking innovatively and disruptively is a requirement to not just survive but thrive. Accordingly, the most forward-thinking professionals know they must get comfortable with being uncomfortable. What’s more, they need to understand the old ways of doing things just won’t cut it.

Staying ahead of the competition requires rethinking the concept of competition itself. This book makes the compelling case that in our bold new reality we must think bigger and differently, finding ways to make love—not war—with ones’ enemies, thereby better serving our customer/clients and winning the game in novel ways that once seemed unthinkable.

Written for today’s professional, this book on breakthrough cooperation will help you rethink how you do business for the benefit of all—but especially you, dear reader.

DTP Berkeley Chapter Leader

Jason Russell
Financial Advisor

I have 30 years of a diverse professional life in international markets. As a 'serial entrepreneur' I built successful small businesses which included bars and restaurants in Prague, an export and distribution business in India; a franchise of English language schools for children in Italy; and finally a real estate investment company in Florida.
Each chapter of my professional life presented its own challenges and opportunities and contributed in profound ways to my ability to assess situations, listen with great care, identify pain points and provide real, tailored solutions. As an Edward Jones financial advisor, I have found my calling.

I take the time to get a clear understanding of what's important to my clients, then use an established process to build personalized strategies to help achieve their goals. Finally, I partner with them throughout their lives to help keep them on track. Many of my clients seek to achieve their financial goals through investments which are in alignment with their ethics. To that ends, I work deeply with my clients to build portfolios suitable to their financial goals while incorporating ESG investing principles (Environmental, Social, and corporate Governance).

While I welcome the opportunity to meet with anyone who has questions and/or concerns about their financial life, and to seek mutual agreement if we are a 'good match' of client and advisor, I also focus on two major demographics:
--Early to Mid-Career Professionals seeking to design a 'work optional' lifestyle who may have irregular streams of income (small business owners, real estate agents/real estate investors, sales representatives, etc.)
--Late career households which are approaching or already living in retirement with concerns about maximizing their investments to live a full life in a tax efficient way, not outlive their money and leave a legacy for their loved ones and/or charitable causes important to them.
