Growing up the 7th of 9 children in a poor household, to having his first job at just 11 years old, to stealing in the streets of Portland, Oregon, Jerry will be the first to tell you that NOTHING came to him easy. Tune in to this MUST-LISTEN conversation, as Jerry shares what kept him sharp in his youth, his current style and approach to business, and how a neighborhood beat-down became a transforming event that changed his entire outlook and perspective on how he navigates his life... that he STILL applies to this day.
Jerry shares how he went from absolute NOTHING, to owning over a dozen business, employing more than 10,000 workers, and achieving total sales topping $450 million. He's a true testament to the possibility of what one can achieve if you take FULL ACCOUNTABILITY for yourself, OWN your actions & decisions, and REFUSE to play the victim.
He's had (and continues to have) an incredible journey, and wants to share what he's encountered, all the ups and downs, with those who are tying to forge their own path.
