An Entrepreneur Whose Paramilitary Security Agency Has Transformed Many Lives

Shea K. Jackson, an artist, serial entrepreneur, investor, wife, and mom of 3, said in a recent interview that she connected with many artists like herself and networked in her local community.

As the co-owner and CFO, she has worked alongside her husband to scale their business to seven figures and expanded their portfolio by opening other businesses.

They literally built their business from absolute scratch. They manifested the success of their company with belief, grit, and hard work. And now, it has allowed them to set themselves up for success 10 times over and expand their growth as serial entrepreneurs, allowing them to show their kids what it truly means to create generational wealth.

Those connections opened doors she honestly did not know existed within the military community. She has also performed internationally with world-renowned vocal coach Cheryl Porter and sang with gospel legend Hezekiah Walker.

As a double minority-owned business that scaled to 7 figures organically (in 2020, during the onset of the pandemic) with NO working capital, NO angel investors, and NO business loans, she and her husband are very proud of the success of their paramilitary security agency, Jackson Protection Agency. 

Her perspective within her industry and entrepreneurism overall is that you create your own environment. You must decide what you want and focus on that consistently to achieve success. Without a clear target of what you’d like to achieve, you can’t make a road map for yourself. And without a roadmap, it will take you twice as long to find your destination. There are one hundred ways to succeed, but you have to follow the path that works for you, not someone else. Make sure to stay true to yourself, no matter where life takes you. That’s her advice to others.

Her biggest purpose is to be a light in her sphere of influence and motivate others to pursue their goals. Her husband has a mantra that she has adopted: “Don’t wait for a great moment, but take every moment and make it great.” Once her husband made his transition out of the military in 2017, they established a paramilitary security agency, Jackson Protection Agency.

Overcoming a lack of financial support, misogyny, racism, and even her own self-sabotaging beliefs were critical to her success. Being a double minority—both black and a woman—as an entrepreneur in any market has its advantages and disadvantages.

She would like to be perceived as relentless, determined, driven, and self-motivated. By raising her children to work hard and follow their dreams, she aims to be an inspiration to them throughout their lives. She plans to be asset to her family, community, and her perspective industries as an entrepreneur.
