Caliber Enterprises: Marcus Jackson's 'Suite' Life
November 2, 2012
Nestled right in the mix of Atlanta's popular industry scene is an agency that houses fashion, entertainment, hospitality and event planning planning all under one roof. You can't go wrong with Marcus Jackson at the helm and his list of clients grows everyday.
Marcus started Caliber Elite Consulting at a crossroads. While in corporate America, he hit the "glass ceiling" and he knew he needed to get out from under it in order to grow. He wanted to make sure he could expand his leadership capabilities and give back to others as well. He earned his stripes in the fashion industry while he was signed to Elite Model Management. It was then that he learned what goes on in front of the camera and behind it. As a working model, he was sent to casting calls but he focused on learning as much about the modeling and talent business as he could. He depended on his inner drive and self confidence to ensure he would be successful with this endeavor. In the beginning stages, friends helped Marcus develop his business plan and align his ideas with his vision. He stepped out on his faith and even though the steps were small, he kept going until he was able to make leaps.
Marcus advises anyone who wants to own their own business to believe in themselves and not give up. He states, "be consistent on your path; you have to tread forward whether people support you or not. Have a serious dosage of faith which means you have to believe beyond what you can see. Also know your brand; what are trying to say, do and or be? Lastly, have patience because it may not happen overnight."
When he's not making guest appearances on the hit reality show "Real Housewives of Atlanta" or coordinating a photo shoot, Marcus is busy working on a TV project, articles, and events. He is most excited about the Midtown Tour of Homes coming up in April 2013. His team is planning the event from conception to ending. Marcus also mentors at a community center, spends time out with his clients and plans branding strategies with his team.
Caliber Enterprises simply means a standard above all else. Marcus and his team seeks to be the premier talent management agency so if you are a model or an actor, Caliber should be on your radar. In addition to crafting a plan that leads to a career, Caliber can plan your next event or provide consultation for your next project.
