Meet Jarvis Jack of King Jay Enterprise in Jackson

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jarvis Jack.

Jarvis, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I grew up in a family of business owners and I have had the pleasure of being exposed to a variety of people and experiences. My parents would often take me on a variety of vacations, meetings, and banquets. All of these played a vital role in my exposure to different cultures and people with successful careers. This exposure caused me to have a genuine interest in entrepreneurship and business at an early age. At the age of eight, I started with an agricultural business. The agricultural business acted as a catalysis for other business ventures. Four years later, I started Jarden Fashions, a small men’s clothing business. At the peak of the business’s success, I had to endure the devastation of losing my father. My father’s death sparked an interest in me for music. As time progressed, this love for music matured greatly which bring me to this present time. For the past ten years of my life, I have been playing and traveling far and near. My musical career motivated me to establish King Jay Enterprise.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
It has always been my mantra that anything worth having is worth fighting for. This statement or phrase causes me to understand that problems are associated with fights; however, if I don’t fight, then I won’t obtain success or answers to my problems. With that being said, I have had obstacles to overcome in my life. The most challenging obstacle that I have had to overcome was the lost of my father. I lost my father at the age of eleven. This was a critical point in my life. I was at that place where my understanding and emotions were expanding. A lot of things that he had taught me before he passed was just starting to make sense. The overall challenge was trying to figure out how to maximize what he instilled in me while still trying to figure out some things on my own. Furthermore, I had to contemplate how to carry out his legacy without compromising the expression of myself and personality. I had to truly evaluate myself and him to find a balance that would compliment the both of us. Though it has not been easy, the lessons that I have learned before and after his death have helped to shape me into the person that I am today.

Please tell us about King Jay Enterprise.
King Jay Enterprise is a brand that is linked to my musical career. The brand is used for marketing purposes and to keep other business affairs in order. This brand allows me to stand out from the average musician. The goal of the average musician is to provide a service and to receive compensation. This brand strives to create a captivating, one of a kind musical encounter. The brand’s motto is that you pay for music, but you invest in musicianship. Through King Jay Enterprise, I have created a well-known image for myself throughout my local city and other parts of the United States. The brand is mostly known for professionalism and skillfulness. I am most proud of the fact that I have created a brand that people respect and trust to provide a skillful presentation of musical excellence.

If you had to go back in time and start over, would you have done anything differently?
It is my belief that in life that only the committed and fittest will survive. I now realize more than ever that success requires risks. Sometimes life and the idea of being successful can be so intense and intimidating that it may cause you to evaluate your own proclivities. However, regardless of how tough it may get you must never be afraid of taking the risks. With that being said, if I had to do everything over again, I would take more risks. I would trust the wisdom that is on the inside and not be overly hesitant to obtain certain opportunities. I have learned that being overly concerned with failure and the unknown can put you in a place of stagnation. This can cause you to become so complacent with where you are that it makes you content with being unproductive. I have learned to push myself to rise above the fear of failure and the unknown. This has caused me to focus more on things that I have control over rather than the things that I do not.
