If we were to put anyone under 30 on our future billionaire list, it would definitely be Chance Cessna.
Best-selling author, entrepreneur, and power business coach, Chance Cessna is making money moves, and she's teaching people how to follow in her steps.
Born and raised in Chicago, IL, Cessna is the youngest of three children. Her father, Gabriel Jackson is a real estate investor who taught her the principles of business at an early age. "I always looked up to my dad for inspiration as an entrepreneur. He taught me how to be independent and bet on myself" Cessna says.
Growing up in front of the lights, Cessna has had a career in modeling and acting and has been featured in movies like Jersey Boys directed by Clint Eastwood and featured in commercial campaigns for Walmart. She is also a former pageant queen who was a finalist in the Miss USA and Miss World pageant systems. However, her passion for entrepreneurship began to emerge to new heights and a desire to people discover their God-ordained purpose began to ignite a new fire within her.
A graduate of the George Washington University, Cessna studied journalism and mass communication and minored in theater and dance. She interned almost every semester while in college seeking to learn as much as possible. "I always had a hunger for learning. I figured the more I read, studied, and taught myself the things I believed to be important, the more successful I could become. I also surrounded myself with excellent mentors.”
Success for Chance however has not always been easy. In 2017, Chance found herself homeless and sleeping in her 2005 Dodge Stratus. “It was like one day I had a place and it seemed like life was going well, then within a blink of an eye everything fell apart" Chance shares. However, that defining moment in her life changed everything. “During that difficult season of my life, I had developed an entirely new passion and hunger for success. My faith went to a whole different level. I knew that if God had already brought this far in life, He was not going to leave me. So, I had to trust and stand on His promise," Cessna shares.
When asked for advice to young people trying to make it she says, "Only believe. That is my life's motto. Do not allow fear, doubt, or your insecurities to rob you of your dream for the future. You can do anything you put your mind to. You already have everything in you to succeed. Do not compare yourself with others. Only focus on your goals and doing what your heart truly feels called to do in life."
Chance currently runs multiple online businesses and is the founder of Emerge University, a digital learning community for emerging leaders and entrepreneurs. Her best-selling courses are "Instagram Rich" where she teaches people the strategies of how she grew her Instagram page from 0-30,000 followers in less than 60 days and "How to Make $10,000 in 30 Days."
