As a young man, Jermaine became a young entrepreneur and sought out to become his own boss. At a very early age he enrolled in entrepreneurship classes alongside junior high students and developed superb desktop publishing and artistic design skills. While in these classes, Jermaine created coffee mugs, key chains, and posters for many buyers in school and in the local community. These creations allowed him to place first in the school business fair and led to him placing 51 out of 100 among Youth Owned Businesses in America by his sophomore year in High School. These early accomplishments catapulted Jermaine into the arena of public speaking. Jermaine began to share his story of success around the country. These speaking engagements allowed him to be featured in several publications and media outlets.

THE WHITE TABLECLOTH EXPERIENCE
The White Tablecloth Experience is an afternoon of motivation, demonstration and fine dining that teaches young men the basics of etiquette. Each guest will learn how to use proper table wear, the different courses of meals and the proper way to sit at the dinner table. Each young man will also be taught how to tie their own neck tie.
THE CHICAGO GENTLEMEN’S BRUNCH
The Chicago Gentlemen’s Brunch is an afternoon of elegance for the sophisticated male. Each year socially conscious men gather in an exclusive venue to break bread and have candid conversations about health & wellness, physical fitness, male grooming and how to give back.
