Part-time Executive Protection

I don’t have the numbers but I would bet that the amount of specialists that are doing protection on a part-time level is as high, if not higher than the men and women that dedicate everyday to protection. Many full-time specialists are either traversing from one company to another or from call to call. That …

One in the same

One of the lessons I learned from my publicists Derbin and Arphelia Cabell of Cabell Publicity is that I needed to make sure that when someone heard, read or spoke of BPI Security they automatically related it to Eric Konohia.  On a local level that was not an issue, however as the footprint across the country was heard and …

EP the modern day JD

Juris Doctor, the degree conferred upon graduating from law school.  For most lawyers the most stressful part comes next-THE BAR.  If they pass then the matriculate into society amongst the other countless attorneys looking for work.  The grind of an attorney trying to find work is almost parallel to that of an EP specialist.  If …
