In a world where people are often out for themselves, a few set their sights on making the world a better place and bringing a refreshing change of pace. One such person is Reco Jefferson. A seasoned entrepreneur laser-focused on giving back to his community and empowering others, he is proof that success is possible when you put others first.
With a can-do attitude and an unwavering dedication to his mission, Jefferson quickly made a name for himself in the business world and made it his mission to change as many lives as he could along the way.
As Jefferson explains, most people would say that the American dream is about acquiring wealth and material possessions. However, for him, it’s all about giving back to the community and empowering others.
Jefferson was born into poverty, but that never stopped him from achieving his goals. As a young child, he was always determined to make something of himself. He has become a successful entrepreneur thanks to his hard work and determination.
Today, he runs several highly successful companies—an 8-figure eCommerce automated business he built from scratch, a real estate agency, a coaching and mentoring agency and a digital media agency called Helix Media.
One thing that drives Jefferson most is his desire to give back to the community that has done so much for him. He knows that all successful entrepreneurs should put money back into the community, and he is proud to be doing his part.
Jefferson’s eCommerce company builds and manages automated Amazon Shopify stores for clients. The clients receive passive income for their investments, and Jefferson takes pride in being able to help them achieve their goals.
On top of that, his real estate agency helps repurpose worn-down houses and turns them into affordable housing that caters to low-income families and a few other smaller ventures. Jefferson knows what it’s like to start from scratch, so he wants to help others achieve success.
“I invest in the Redding, Pennsylvania, and Philadelphia areas, renting housing to lower-income individuals,” Jefferson says. He adds that he remembers what it was like trying to find suitable housing while he was a kid. It’s something he wishes nobody should ever experience.
“So, whenever I buy a property, we rehab them from top to bottom and turn them into nice places where people can live. Most of them are good people who deserve a second chance, and I’m glad to be in a position to help.”
Jefferson is a role model for all aspiring entrepreneurs, and his story should inspire others to reach for the stars. He has worked hard for everything he has achieved and is a testament to the fact that anything is possible if you put your mind to it. Thanks to his dedication and determination, Jefferson proves that rags-to-riches stories are still possible in today’s world.
More importantly, he shows that good people still selflessly put themselves in the community’s service and try to make the world a better place.
