Hello everyone,

My name is Jake, I'm 24 and am an entrepreneur. My business is still in the planning stages, but is coming together. As of right now I am working full-time in car sales and part time in real estate but my true passion is owning my own chain of businesses.

I became a licensed real estate broker, in Oregon, back in April, 2015. I began working full-time in car sales in mid September, 2015. Weather car sales or real estate, my passion is in business and sales.

I worked as a police officer for a little over a year before realizing that there was much more that I wanted to do. I don't like feeling limited in my ability to set and accomplish goals.

I went to college for 2 years and studied criminal justice and business. However, I do not believe that success can be taught in our current education system. I believe in order to be successful, you must have an imagination, persevering spirit and common sense.

I enjoy traveling and fishing. I measure success by time enjoying things, not by how much money is in my bank account. However, in order to have more time, you need a stream of revenue. Therefore, that is the reason I am working to create a chain of businesses.

This community could help me grow and begin my business by giving me constructive criticism and feedback on my plans and ideas.

I look forward to working with all of you!


Jake C.

Thumbs up Welcome aboard!

Hey Jake, what an energetic interesting intro. I am a kindred spirit with your view on money and enjoying your work. I am a fan of the sentiment "Do what you love and success will follow."

My biggest enemy is that I enjoy so many things

I am looking forward to your ideas and adventures.
