While some leaders are built, many are born. As an agent of change, twenty-year Army veteran and financial advisor, Carey J. Jackson, IV is best known for his unique ability to engage, enrich and enlighten the lives of everyone he comes into contact with daily. Intentional about leaving a lasting impression on everyone he meets, he is unapologetically on a mission to become the best version of himself—and he encourages others to do the same. Where many people see networking as optional, passive social events, Carey knows firsthand that networking is a righteous, spiritual experience, creating synergy between like individuals who can effect greater change at a faster rate.



Every soldier in the military must complete basic training before he or she can operate effectively in the field. In addition, every soldier carries a field manual, which helps them quickly and efficiently make decisions when situations get complicated or the unexpected happens. Likewise, life itself can feel like a series of attacks, battles, wars and, for many, few wins. When life throws grenades and seeks to destroy everything in its path, one wrong move could literally make the difference between life or death.

In this candid literary work, The Field Manual: Life Lessons for Effective Leadership, author Carey Joshua Jackson helps readers leverage significant lessons learned in order to garner success in all areas of life. A step-by-step guide to discipline and proper preparation, this book positions readers to not only recognize the landmines of life—but how to avoid detonating them altogether.

  • How to apply life skills and lessons learned to experience a fulfilled life

  • How to survive life’s chaotic, unpredictable situations

  • How to avoid ambushes that come to compromise your life’s mission

  • How to make rational decisions as opposed to panicking by your environment
