Mark Jackson II grew up in New Orleans and ended up in Oklahoma City by way of the Air Force. During his time in the military, he had the opportunity to live in Japan for three years before being stationed in Oklahoma, where he decided to stay indefinitely.

Because Mark still wanted to serve his country, he became a civilian Department of Defense employee. He also took the opportunity to go to college, which he hadn’t been able to do earlier. He also made the courageous decision to start his own business, which he’ll discuss in this episode.

Mark’s strength and area of expertise lies in ageless energy that’s rooted in being financially successful and free of the constant stress of debt. As you likely know if you’ve ever been in debt of any kind (whether from a home, a car, credit cards, medical issues, or even going to college), owing money is something that hangs over your head and is constantly present as a stressor in your life. Imagine the energy and freedom that could come from removing this stress!

As we discuss, though, not all debt is necessarily a bad thing. This comes up as we discuss my very recent real estate transaction, as you’ll hear about in our conversation! In addition to talking about financial freedom, Mark and I discuss topics including affirmations, indecision, and the powerful fact that regardless of your age or race, your character can trump all stereotypes when someone meets you.
