Maceo Jourdan – Founder of Canexxia and Retire3 Media
The reason you need passion is that if you don’t, life will eat you up!
Maceo Jourdan, Founder of Canexxia, is a serial entrepreneur with two decades of building businesses by creating great products and great marketing. Through an eclectic career as a budding physicist, turned hedge fund trader, turned marketing executive, turned geometric growth hacker, Maceo has developed an uncanny ability to predict the lifespan of a trend, knowing when to jump on a new idea, when to stay the course, and most importantly, when to get out by selling to a larger competitor or pivoting to a new opportunity. He was the Founder and CEO of Retire3 (R3) Publishing, a company he started with a $25,000 loan and grew to $26 million in just 3 years. His experience spans a wildly eclectic mix of practical real-world experience from the US Army to the cut-throat world of electronic trading. An early pioneer in computerized trading, Maceo built one of the earliest high-frequency trading systems for the S&P 500. He has helped entrepreneurs grow and scale their businesses for the last 30 years and has a knack for making complicated things simple by giving actionable advice.
