The commercial space used to serve as a battleground exclusive only to middle-aged entrepreneurs born with a silver platter. But over the years, a growing number of go-getters have proven that people of all ages can secure a coveted spot at the top of their target industry so long as they go all-out in translating their dreams into reality. Among today’s young power players whose impressive portfolios prove a testament to the power of perseverance and passion is Jordan Baxter. Currently enjoying a position at the forefront of multiple industries, he sets an example for aspirants to follow.
A real estate mogul, marketing expert, nightlife authority, and mentor, Jordan Baxter climbed his way up from humble beginnings. Given his long list of achievements, it could be easy to jump to the conclusion that he grew up with the privileges that are often credited for the success of countless well-accomplished personalities. But this Arizona-native came from a middle-class family supported by parents who were trying to obtain financial freedom by working multiple jobs. He witnessed very early on the value of hardwork by seeing how his family had to work their way, never having anything expensive and such, just to make ends meet. At sixteen, he entered the workforce as a stock boy in a grocery store. It was by clinging to a clear-cut vision of success, pouring his heart into every endeavor, and facing every challenge head-on that this now-renowned figure reached such an incredible stature.
For nearly a decade now, Jordan Baxter has stood at the helm of Pandavent, a highly trusted nightlife entertainment company committed to bringing to life anyone’s dream party. Founded when he was nineteen, the event company quickly became a reliable bridge between clients and their needs, may that be in the form of party buses, charter buses, school buses, DJs, celebrity talent, famous artists, security, nightclubs, event venues, art galleries, restaurants, and more.
On top of spearheading a six-figure event planning venture, the 27-year-old self-starter is also making bold moves in the real estate scene and has plans of gaining a more solid foothold by adding an Airbnb empire to his name.
In carving a path toward the summit and propelling his brainchildren to great heights, Jordan Baxter learned how critical three things are: passion, perseverance, and people. For this Arizona State University graduate, grades can only make so much of a difference on whether one can succeed or not in the long run.
“It’s not always about your grades and how smart you are,” he shared. “It’s about your passion, your drive, and how bad you want something. It’s about who you surround yourself with and how well you can retain good relationships with the people you meet.”
Without a doubt, Jordan Baxter has snagged a load of accomplishments under his belt, but he shows no sign of slowing down. This purpose-driven powerhouse, who is balancing his time between running his ventures and mentoring young entrepreneurs at ASU, aims not only to expand his reach in the business world in the years to come but also make a difference in communities by starting a non-profit for the homeless.
