VoyageLA | Hidden Gems: Meet John Bradley Jackson of CSUF and Titan Angels

CSUF Entrepreneurship Director John Bradley “JJ” Jackson with his dog, Zorro

CSUF Entrepreneurship John Bradley “JJ” Jackson was recently interviewed by VoyageLA in a wide ranging interview that covered a lot of topics, including:

  • Entrepreneurship
  • Loss
  • Letting Go
  • Ethical Dilemmas
  • Overcoming Crises

It’s a great interview and you should take a look. Here’s just one of the interesting parts:

I have learned that life is very uncertain. Obvious, you say? Yes. Some challenges are very predictable, while some are unforeseeable. Yet, they all appear on your doorstep. One can choose to embrace these challenges or battle against them. The latter path may only create resentment based on my experience. Instead, I have learned to welcome my challenges and leverage them to make a better life for my family, friends, community, and myself. While not always easy, that is the plan. My personal and professional challenges are not unique. I am sure many of you have faced them or will soon. Here are a three of the challenges that I have faced.
