Once Upon a Pimp
In August 2014, Joshua Caleb Jackson was sitting in his apartment in Burbank, California thinking of an idea to help people achieve success in their careers. Jackson recollected when a close college friend of his, Samuel Mejia would always show his admiration of Jackson's career by using the term 'pimp' in a congratulatory tone such as "You're big pimpin', Josh!" This was the birth of an idea. An idea that would change Americans view on how they strive for career growth. The idea was How to Pimp Corporate America, the title that Jackson coined in August 2014 for his first book.
In September 2014, Jackson was advised that his brand should be similar to a mascot but reflect as a public figure. The notion of 'pimping corporate America' alone spoke volumes but having an additional edge to it would appeal to the masses. That was when Jackson had another idea come to mind! This idea birthed the illustrative character, The Corporate Pimp.
On August 31, 2015, Jackson released his self-published book, How to Pimp Corporate America and received notoriety of his work via television and radio interviews with FOX News, ABC News, Smack Urban Radio and The Book Circle Online.
On February 8, 2016, Jackson started his nationwide motivational speaking tour, The Revolutionizing Pimping Tour to 39 states and 88 cities. The purpose behind Jackson's tour was to promote his book and brand to middle school, high school and college students through his motivational speaking presentations. Jackson provided tips in each presentation that helped students understand the importance of personal and professional development. Jackson ended his tour successfully on November 18, 2016.
In January 2017, at the dawn of the new year, Jackson relocated to San Diego, California. On February 1, 2017, The Corporate Pimp, Inc. moved from on tour to a physical office location nestled in downtown San Diego, California. After Jackson realized that his company can grow and scale better in Texas, on January 29, 2018, Jackson and his team announced that The Corporate Pimp Headquarters will be relocating to Austin, Texas on March 1, 2018. Since then, Jackson has acquired space for working in Austin and a studio to create content.
Jackson continues to work diligently on ideas to expand and grow his business exponentially with a purpose and focus on educating individuals to attain success in their career endeavors.
