Matthew Jordan, Owner of J-Enterprises/Falcon4, has been recognized as a Marquis Emerging Leader for their contributions and achievements in the field.
Mr. Jordan is an entrepreneur who is currently the owner of J-Enterprises and Falcon4. J-Enterprises is a company Mr. Jordan did with Amway. In this venture, he expanded his knowledge of networking and marketing other people’s products. His other business, Falcon4, is a system he did with TD Ameritrade, which he put through the Better Business Bureau. He started the business in 2013 with the intention of helping communities get started in stocks and bonds. He helped struggling but promising companies by investing in them and helping them refurbish their offerings and branding. Falcon4 continues to operate at present. In both of these lines of work, he has utilized his skills in business marketing strategy, advertising, and public speaking.
Mr. Jordan first became interested in his field after working in local politics while President George Bush was in office. When President Obama took office, he learned about the Affordable Health Care Act (Obamacare), and became interested in learning more about the medical field and how a program like that can affect people of all socioeconomic classes. In all of his endeavors, he has set out to help others. Mr. Jordan credits all of his family members who were entrepreneurs as the inspiration for his success. They were role models for him as they had their own businesses and companies and taught him how to work and manage his own.
Looking toward the future, Mr. Jordan would like to see the RDU (Raleigh-Durham International Airport) program or the bus system operational in Durham. In terms of Falcon4, he has always dreamed of opening up his own stock market branch with a brokerage firm. Throughout his career, he has always been involved with his community. He has given back by being involved with the American Heart Association, Feed the Children, [Moonlit’ Warriors, and many other organizations, especially ones that focus on helping injured soldiers and children.
