Jacksonville native Janay White, a businesswoman with over 50 Airbnb homes, is the CEO of J White Construction Inc – a construction firm that recently received vendor certification from the state of Florida. The entrepreneur now has a mission to provide first-time homebuyers and single mothers with affordable housing while also reviving areas of poverty, according to Black News.
White has founded a non-profit organization, is the CEO of eight companies, and also owns eight investment properties, including three brand-new houses that were completely built from scratch. Her companies are J White Enterprises, Luigi’s Concrete and More LLC, J WHITE Construction INC, J WHITE Marketing INC, J White Holdings INC, JW Enterprises Unlimited LLC, J White Auto Sales and J White Tax Corp. Additionally, she owns and operates a hair salon, and offers single mothers a special fleet of eight rental cars.
According to Black Business, White went from being homeless and living paycheck to paycheck to becoming an accomplished serial entrepreneur who runs six- and seven-figure businesses. Prior to her success, she worked two jobs every day for ten years, serving as a revenue auditor in UPS’s accounting and finance division from 2011 to 2020 and as a social worker and fraud investigator at the Florida Department of Children and Families from 2010 to 2020.
Today, the entrepreneur is working to help others achieve financial independence and pass on their fortune to future generations.
Currently, White also owns and operates J White Credit University, which teaches people how to use their credit wisely to generate numerous sources of income that result in financial freedom and generational riches.
Her pivot towards assisting people to attain financial independence was born out of her troubles with her finances. She sat in bad credit for seven years after securing a loan of $500 from Vystar Credit Union when she was 18 years old.
However, by age 25, she started rebuilding her credit score and taught herself to boost her scores. Having found the magic wand, White decided to pass on her skill to others who may be in her previous situation and needed help.
