Jax Bridges Graduation!
Last night it was my distinct honor to graduate from the #JaxBridgesProgram along with my amazing classmates of Cohort 7! Over the past (3) months, I have felt like I was in a master’s level business course on Entrepreneurship, but I have enjoyed every minute of this immense professional experience! What I have learned and the connections made have been invaluable! I have always been drawn to other entrepreneurs — leaders, those who live by the excellence concept. There is something unique about entrepreneurs — our mindset that says: “There is always more I don’t know, and I’m prepared to make the time to learn;” “I’m willing to work hard, to sacrifice what I want today for the sake of the vision & the good of the team I’m now responsible for;” “Yes, I’m willing to take this calculated risk;” “Innovation & remaining customer-focused drive my ability to compete for the long-haul.” I pray the absolute best for each of you and look forward to having a front row seat view for your inevitable success! If I can assist you in any way, don’t hesitate to call on me. ~K.Jacobs-Armstrong, 12/14/17

Walk To End Alzheimer's
2017 with Team Memory Warriorz
"Fighting for Lasting Memoriez!"
*At KJC we are all about equipping you to live life abundantly & leave a lasting legacy, but I believe I must first lead out in anything I promote! Therefore, I was honored to once again participate in the Walk to End Alzheimer’s — walking hand-in-hand with my father (diagnosed last October)— while remembering my grandmother's amazing legacy. For all those who donated to this organization — which is leading in the fight for a cure, for those afflicted, and in support of their caregivers — I cannot thank you enough!
For those who may not be aware, November is National Alzheimer's Disease Awareness & National Family Caregivers Month. Since its inception in 1983, by President Ronald Regan, the number of Americans diagnosed with this heartbreaking disease has more than doubled today to 5.4 million from 2 million (alz.org). When becoming acquainted with individuals for the first time, and the topic of occupation arises, I am often met with the same question: "What made you want to do that?" My immediate reply is, "Well, truthfully, it chose me..." I then share the story of how my grandmother, Mae Eva Howell, was diagnosed with Dementia (of which Alzheimer's Disease is the most common form).
