Hailing from Jacksonville, Florida, author and motivational speaker, Joshua Caleb Jackson, started his climb to the top of the corporate ladder as a dishwasher. After earning his Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (BSBA) degree with concentrations in Finance and Marketing at the University of South Florida and Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree at Keller Graduate School of Management of DeVry University, this led to many opportunities including analyst, managerial, consultant and directorial positions. Jackson advanced his career in corporate America exponentially through self applied techniques that catapulted him at the age of 26 in increasing his salary by $43,000 in one calendar year. The following year at age 27, for the first time in his life, Jackson reached an income of six figures with his career in corporate America.
Ever since a young age, Jackson has always had a passion for paying it forward and giving back to others. In the summer of 2014, Jackson came up with the idea to write a book that will educate readers on how to achieve their dream job and survive sustaining a successful career in corporate America. He came up with the title of the book, How to Pimp Corporate America and shortly after, connected with an illustrator who drew the character, The Corporate Pimp.
On August 31, 2015, Jackson’s released his manuscript, How to Pimp Corporate America to the public. From that moment on, Jackson appeared on FOX News, ABC News, The Book Circle Online and other local radio station outlets across the nation.
Jackson wanted to reach his audience face-to-face but in an unprecedented way. In December of 2015, Jackson resigned from his corporate job to start his nationwide motivational speaking tour, The Revolutionizing Pimping Tour. Touring for 6 months to 39 states and 88 cities, Jackson motivated and inspired our nation’s youth to achieve success in their career endeavors.
Jackson recently relocated from San Diego, California to Austin, Texas to grow and expand The Corporate Pimp globally. You can find Jackson during his leisure time traveling internationally, eating from a myriad of cuisines, or writing literature underneath a sycamore tree.
