Meet Jerry Davis

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jerry Davis.

Hi Jerry, so excited to have you with us today. What can you tell us about your story?
My name is Jerry Davis, I was born in Chicago, Illinois November 6th, 1976. I grew up down south in the cities of Jacksonville, Florida, and West Helena, Arkansas. I now reside in Memphis, Tennessee since 2006. I am a father to one son 26 yrs old, who is an Educator and resides in Boston, MA.

I am a former Educator in the public and charter schools of Shelby County, having served in the capacity of Algebra Teacher, Computer Science Teacher, Behavioral Interventionist, Football Coach, and Girls Basketball Coach on all levels of Elementary, Middle, and High School. I am an alumnus of Tennessee State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science in August 2001.

I am also a dual certified Life Coach. I became a self-published author in the spring of 2015 with my debut book “5 Dimensions of A Man” and I self-published a follow-up book ” 5 Dimensions of A Man: Reloaded” in the spring of 2019.

The 5 Dimensions are faith, family, business, love, and self.

It was written essentially to help men realize and make better choices in dealing with those 5 areas of their life from practical, real-life, and biblically inspired views. I also have a blog, Real Life University Archive episodes of my podcast LIFEgistics can be found on Google podcasts as well.

I am also an Entrepreneur with Life & Health insurance and looking to pursue Real Estate soon.

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
Like with anything in life there have been many challenges I have had to face.

The biggest challenge I would say was getting out of my own way, I would see people doing things I admired or possibly wanted to do but unintentionally procrastinate because of other things I had going on in my life. Had an epiphany moment and realize no dreams or goals of mine would happen if I didn’t take a leap of faith and just do it.

No matter if it was financial, relational, or mental, I had to overcome these stumbling blocks and turn them into stepping stones along my journey.

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
I am an entrepreneur who specializes in being an Author, Life Coach, Speaker, and Social Media Influencer, along with being an agent in the Insurance business.

Being a Life Coach, I specialize in helping men figure out a game plan to reach their goals and reset self-esteem, I help men/women in relationships deal with conflict resolution, and also help students ages 12-17 with behavioral issues, self-esteem being a Speaker, I have spoken to youth groups, singles ministry groups, men groups on various topics as well on podcasts.

Being a Social Media Influencer, I post wisdom quotes I label as “BrainDrops” whether it is my own personal quotes or ones said by someone else that help influence people with positivity and practical life lessons. Being an Author, I published my first two books, which can be purchased on, and is working on the 3rd book that is totally different from the first two.

Being an Entrepreneur specializing in Insurance, Life and Health being able to help those in the community who need it most.

I am most proud of being a published author of 2 books, having had the opportunity to speak at different forums and podcasts to shed some wisdom to anyone seeking a better quality of life.

What sets me apart from others, is my unique, unfiltered approach when it comes to speaking or sharing any knowledge that can help someone.

What would you say has been one of the most important lessons you’ve learned?
I have learned that everyone that says they love you may not always support you, be it family, friends, or significant others. I say this in the way you may need support, not in the way they may show it or think you need it.

It use to agitate me, but now I am unbothered by it. I know the man I am and the man GOD is calling me to be, and he will put the right people around me definitely.
