Sherwin Brown

Hello everyone: I am Sherwin Presley  Brown  
Thanks for visiting my web page:

I have been an entrepreneur since I was twelve years old. 

As a matter of fact, that was the age that I moved out of my Mom and Dad’s two-room shack (“cowshed” as the villages bullies called it). There were eleven of us living in there, and it was just too crowded. At age 12, I started my own business, was on my own and self-sufficient. I remember that age 11 was the last time my parents spent money on me or gave me any resources. A year later, I started to help my Dad to take care of my Mom and other eight siblings, and I have never looked back !  


I currently have four books published: Please check them out on the tab above:  “Books”  or  Download an ebook copy now. (My Books are sold worldwide)

Jamerican book

Born on the island of Jamaica in dirt-poor poverty, Sherwin Presley Brown was blessed with the personality, great work ethic, and positive attitude that rocketed him to unimaginable heights of success. Through the support and guidance of hard-working parents and siblings, Sherwin is living proof that honest effort and great expectations are truly the path that will lead you anywhere you want to go.

 The second of nine children born to Thomas and Joyce Brown, Sherwin realized his boyhood dream of coming to the United States in 1982. He graduated from the prestigious University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, Minnesota, in 1986 with a BA in accounting; not bad for a kid who grew up in the jungle and didn’t own a pair of shoes until he was fourteen years old. Mr. Brown became a US citizen in 1988, and went on to distinguish himself as a successful investment advisor.

 In 2000, after working for only three years with one of the largest insurance and brokerage firms in America, he became the top producer among its 3,000 nationwide representatives. Impressive by any standards, but especially when viewed through the lens of his provincial Caribbean background where even the poor people in his home village of Greencastle, Jamaica, looked upon his family as poverty stricken. Sherwin’s story is the stuff of dreams and is an inspiring rags-to-riches tale all unto itself.

Sherwin Brown and Family

 Despite his successes in corporate America, Sherwin was not satisfied with a stable, well-paying job and opted to flex his entrepreneurial muscles by developing his own investment models and methods. After three years, he realized his business philosophy differed too significantly from that of his partners, which subsequently led him to found, as sole owner, the aptly named financial services firm Jamerica Financial, Inc.

 Sherwin currently coaches, writes, and speaks to people about how to improve and safeguard all aspects of their financial portfolios.

Jamerican: The Gift of Poverty is the third book by Sherwin.

His first book, Safer 401(k) Investing: How to Protect All Your Investments from Wall Street Greed and the Government, was published in 2012.

He also co-wrote a children’s book, The Next Door Neighbor Cats with the Funny Names, which was published in 2014 and is available in print and as an eBook.

His other books, Why Do We Eat Animals will be published in July of 2014 and  The Lies of the DOW, will be published in late 2014.
