Rising Stars: Meet Marlon Jackson

Today we’d like to introduce you to Marlon Jackson.

Hi Marlon, thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstory.
Born and raised in Ole’ South Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Been in trouble with the law before at a young age. I moved to Dallas in 2010. Started out like anyone else just trying to figure out what to do with their life. Got some welding training after high school then eventually got a trade and joined the Ironworkers union here in Dallas working construction. The close calls and injuries I sustained caused me to reevaluate my life. They told me 30 years of hard labor to retire lol I felt trapped and my body was already wearing down. So I started studying entrepreneurship and real estate. I have two businesses I’m currently in the process of growing. Pressure Washed Exteriors LLC & Mojo Buy’s Houses LLC.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
It has Ups and downs. Being a new entrepreneur is hard especially when you’re coming from a good job and you quit to pursue entrepreneurship or a business venture. Your woman is mad at you and people think you’re crazy.

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
I gained the skill of a welder after high school. Joined the Ironworkers union and worked construction in Dallas. I know how to work for others so when I work for myself I work really hard.

What’s next?
Hopefully, I’ll be a million dollar man in the future. My goals are to keep educating myself to keep pushing my businesses to the next level. I would like to own multi-family real estate in the future and produce big passive income.
