It began in 2004, in a pocket-sized city squeezed between East Los Angeles and Bell Gardens. The Commerce Casino hosted a No-Limit Hold’em Championship, enticing 251 players to this 5.6 square mile city with the opportunity to win big in the largest cardroom in the world.
Nick Vertucci was one of the 251 players drawn to the tournament. Four years earlier, Nick lost his computer accessories business to the dot-com bubble, and he was still three years away from founding his real estate investment company. On that day, however, Nick Vertucci discovered his talent for strategy after taking home over $7,500 in prize money.
Moonlighting as a professional poker player is not a typical path for real estate investors, but the skills required to succeed as an investor and as a poker player are the same.
Nick Vertucci is an entrepreneur with a head for strategy. Strategy helped Nick survive the dot-com bubble and pivot to an industry where he could thrive, and he’s improved his strategic skills over the past ten years as part-time poker player.
In business and poker, the key is to play both the cards in your hand and the players at the table. A good poker player learns to manage their emotions and keep a level head during big plays, and the same lesson applies when negotiating large business deals. Moreover, in business and in poker, success depends on a player’s ability to adapt and quickly react to the events unfolding on the table.
Nick Vertucci is a formidable opponent. Over the years, he’s played with celebrities and poker heavy hitters, like Don Cheadle and Antonio “The Magician” Esfandiari. And, with more than 10 years of experience under his belt, underestimating Nick Vertucci at the poker table or in business is a costly mistake.
So many people have dreams of financial freedom, but fail to put those dreams into a lucrative practice.

A system and community was created by Nick Vertucci that will allow you to succeed as he did by making millions in real estate.
Nick Vertucci came from an humble beginning. After the death of his father when Nick was ten, his mother struggled to make ends meet, and keep the family fed. Nick was on his own at age eighteen. He sold computers, made a decent living, then married. He is the father of three daughters. His computer business thrived until the crash of 2000. He lost everything except his home. Life was difficult at that time. A friend invited him to a three day real estate workshop which was the beginning of his interest in real estate. He absorbed all that he could at the seminar, then searched for more information on his own.
As his interest in real estate grew, Nick created a system that started to work for him. Using his system of solutions to the challenges in real estate, Nick became a millionaire within a decade. He took his proven system to the people. He wanted others who may have had dreams of being in real estate, to learn what worked for him.

A new survey on performance in workplaces has found out that companies with gender diversity are 35 percent likely to perform better than those without. A company with a gender-diverse workforce can succeed because it is open to new ideas. This is because when both men and women work in the company, they give different perspectives that can help the venture grow.
In the present day employment sector, women experience difficulty when they are trying to reach high-ranking job positions. Susan McGalla, whose efforts to serve in a high-level position paid off, believes that gender discrimination at workplaces can be mitigated through sponsorship opportunities.
According to her, hardworking women should find an executive who can serve as their benefactor. The sponsor’s work is to advocate for women when they are working on crucial assignments. When a woman receives such support, she is more likely to outperform her male colleagues and serve as an executive.
