How Old Is Derrick Jaxn Now?
Derrick Jaxn, the 33-Year-Old celebrity lifestyle coach, is an Alabama Native, a predominantly black state, but was born in Enterprise, New York, on July 20, 1989. He happens to be the youngest of five siblings, all of whom were raised by their single mom after being abandoned by their Jamaican father.
Watching his mother work several low-paying jobs to take care of all her kids shaped Derrick’s life and was part of his motivation to get himself and his family out of poverty. He had his college education at the Tuskegee University College of Business and Information Science. As a college student, he was very interested in sports and played mostly football.
In fact, the 6-feet-5-inches tall student bagged multiple football championship wins for his University. With time, however, Derrick’s interests shifted again. This time to literature, but not before he graduated in 2012 with a B.Sc degree at the age of 23.
While he was still a college student, Derrick Jaxn chaired many non-profit mentorship groups for teenagers. He was a passionate community leader, and so after graduating, due to his stellar CV, Derrick had few problems landing a sales and marketing position in a Fortune 500 company.
At 33, Derrick Jaxn has Accomplished so Much In Less Than 10 Years of Being in the Spotlight
In what we can now refer to as a humble beginning, the relationship guru initially began his coaching career as a simple blogger. Then, he ran a personal blog where he spoke about how people could have better relationships, including all the dos and don’ts. While he had been active since his late teens, he didn’t join YouTube until he was about 21. That was around 2010.
However, Derrick Jaxn’s big break came after he had written his first book. The book, ‘A Cheating Man’s Heart,’ was published in 2013, when he was just a 24-year-old young man. It immediately became a bestselling hit, causing him to release two subsequent books in the series with the titles, ‘A Cheating Man’s Heart 2’ and ‘A Cheating Man’s Heart 3’, with each grossing over a million copies in sales.
From creating a blog to becoming famous off of Instagram, and later, YouTube, you cannot deny that Jaxn is a true millennial who doesn’t hesitate to make proper use of the internet. By the time Derrick was 30, he had made well over a million dollars from both the sale of his books and from his YouTube viewership.
The author and philanthropist got married in 2018 to Da’Naia Broadus when he was 29 years old, and they have two beautiful children together. And despite an infidelity scandal that almost tore their family apart, they are still holding on and going strong.
