Known as the consummate entrepreneur, Andrew Jackson was recently a “Teacher for the day” at Heskett Middle School in Bedford, Ohio. Speaking to a group of about 50 students, Mr. Jackson provided them with valuable and inspiring lessons that will help them in life.
“Too whom much is given, much is required,” is one of Jackson’s favorite quotes. Certainly, he gives back! His participation in The Mentoring Network program is just another example.
Alright, Jackson is not exactly cooking in the kitchen, but he is sharing his ingredients for successful business operations to help aspiring entrepreneurs take the next step.
Following in the footsteps of CNBC/ LeBron James “Cleveland Hustle” which first aired in 2016, the “Cleveland Chain Reaction” Project is being produced to create jobs, investments, and wealth in Cleveland’s neighborhoods while providing opportunities for ambitious entrepreneurs to benefit from the financial resources and tutelage of seasoned business owners.
The “Cleveland Chain Reaction” project aired and hosted by FOX 8 News in the Morning Reporter, Kenny Crumpton involved the partnership of the Cleveland Neighborhood Progress (CNP), the Council of Smaller Enterprises (COSE) and GlazenUrban.
Andrew Jackson saw this program as one where he could continue his community involvement by influencing the outcomes of aspiring entrepreneurs. One of the businesses that he and his partner Fred Geis selected was Claude Booker’s Sides To Go, a restaurant with southern flair that features tasty barbeque and a long list of accompanying flavorful side dishes. As Sides To Go menu expands, so will its locations as the team expects to open other restaurants statewide.
