ST65: Stephen Interviews David Lowe

Welcome to Success Talks hosted by Stephen Dela Cruz. Today Stephen interviews David Lowe the creator of Qwerky Co-living a tech startup connecting likeminded individuals, to be able to live and work together. Originally the idea came from a pilothouse serving eight entrepreneurs but soon they realized that they could serve so many more people!

 

            David was born in England but ventures over the pond at the age of thirty-two to Austin Texas, where he started a company called Uber Pong, a ping pong based company. Within a year Uber Pong was making custom paddles for different distributers, and within two years started to host a celebrity Ping-Pong tournament.

 

                        The hardest part of starting this new business for David was having to start from square one after moving. Not only that the process of being able to live and work in the U.S. took around a year for him. Starting over has made starting new businesses hard for David, because you really have to start from scratch while creating your network.

 

            While David does plan to stay in San Diego for a while, him and his partner are already thinking about being successful and helping others, especially focusing in Tijuana. Visualizing that Qwerky is already a success allows David to build backwards instead of building from the ground up. This visualization helps him and his partner think of their destination not just the problems at hand.

 

            What sets Qwerky apart is David’s plan to really build a co-living community by focusing on bringing together likeminded people.

 

David’s best advice for those looking to move to San Diego as an entrepreneur is,

  1. Immerse yourself in the culture
  2. Never stop learning
  3. Get out and see San Diego

ST53 : Stephen Interviews Joshua C. Jackson

 

Hailing from Jacksonville, Florida, author, motivational speaker and career coach, Joshua Caleb Jackson started his climb to the top of the corporate America ladder with little to no guidance. After earning his Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (BSBA) degree with concentrations in Finance and Marketing at the University of South Florida and Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree at Keller Graduate School of Management of DeVry University, this led to many opportunities including analyst, managerial, consultant and directorial positions.

After spending 10 years in corporate America and successfully increasing his yearly salary by $43,000 in just one year, Jackson came up with the idea for his book, How to Pimp Corporate America. By combining his experiences with those of friends and family, Jackson has created the ultimate guide to success in corporate America. Since the inception of How to Pimp Corporate America, Jackson has been featured on ABC News, FOX News, and other media outlets discussing self-taught philosophies mentioned in his book in greater detail. In 2016, Jackson successfully completed a nationwide motivational speaking tour, The Revolutionizing Pimping Tour to 39 states and 88 cities in 6 months inspiring thousands of youth to achieve success in their career endeavors.

On January 9, 2017, Jackson established physical presence of The Corporate Pimp nestled in downtown San Diego at WeWork. Jackson is dedicated to expand his business through the pillars of his business: Career Coaching Consulting, Career Educational Development, and Career Workshop Facilitating.

Jackson currently resides in San Diego, California. You can find Jackson during his leisure time traveling internationally, eating from a myriad of cuisines, or writing literature underneath a sycamore tree.
