    I got this achievement on the first mission by Joe's Apartment (Going Out of Business). I used a non-upgraded car, fairly standard speed. You'll need grenades and molotovs, which you can buy at Harry's and Giueseppe's, respectively.

    "Just a tip, there are actually molotovs inside the garage where you blow up the cars. They are on the right of the door if you're facing into the garage." - Thanks MEETSP1NNER

    Start the mission, follow the red line and at the turn into the yard, do a Drift. Then gun it and follow the line straight - you should get a few Velocity points, then hit the ramp for a Jump. Turn left after landing and get a Vehicular Kill on one of the enemies by your objective, then spin the car and hop out behind it.

    They'll be 3 enemies and 3 or more will come out after you destroy the cars. In no particular order, get an Explosive Kill (grenade), Burning Kill (molotov), regular Kill (a firearm kill without a headshot), Headshot, and a Melee Kill (do this one on the last of the first 3 enemies before destroying the cars so no one else is shooting at you).

    Go inside and blow up the cars for Demolition, then go outside and get other score actions you didn't get on the first 3 enemies. Then just go hit the safe zone for the achievement.

    (Please note that this is just to give a general idea of how to get this achievement - feel free to alter it. For example, if you don't get a Velocity bonus at the beginning, before going to the safe zone grab a fast car and hit a long strip of road)

    Dingus McKahStealth Kill also works if you don't wanna buy grenades. Instead of running over the first guy just stealth kill him from behind.

    JooeehInstead of Getting Grenades or if you having trouble with the stealth kill you can start a fight with an NPC and do a Melee Finisher

    Here is a way to get 3 easy achievements right after you finish the witness level. Your first mission will be to destroy cars in a warehouse. This is the mission called "GOING OUT OF BUSSINESS" Its outside of Joe's apartment.
    This method will net you the following
    - Jack of all trades.
    - Driftin Daddy O
    - Jacked Jumper.

    Before you start, you need to buy grenades and molotovs cocktails from Giueseppe and Harry. Check your map for their locations.

    Start the mission. Go to the warehouse area. There will be a stretch of road right before the actual warehouse. Its more like a parking lot or something, not a real road. To get the DRIFT, You can start from the fence at the back. Go about 20 mph and start pushing the left stick right and left. If you do it right, you will get the "Driftin daddy O achievement". Just make sure not to hit anything even if you are over 200 or it wont count. Now, hit that straight away to get the VELOCITY, keep going fast and hit the ramp ahead to get JUMP, this will give you the "Jacked Jumper" achievement. Once you land, there will be an enemy there. Run him over to get VEHICLAR KILL. There will be 3 enemies coming at you now. Kill one with your grenade for EXPLOSION, kill one with your molotov for BURNING. Run up to the last one and MELEE him with B. Run into the warehouse and blow up the cars for DEMOLITION. Back outside, 5 enemies will come at you. 3 from the left and 2 from the right. Kill one with HEADSHOT and one just normal KILL with firearm. Finish the mission by going to safe house and you will get "Jack of all trades" achievement. If you are having problems with the difting achievement, go to that achievement for an even easier way to get it" There you have it folks, 3 easy achievements right from the first level.
