IT IS WHAT YOU MAKE IT: HOWEVER SUCCESSFUL YOU ARE OR WILL BE IS DETERMINED BY YOUR INPUT

Store Facade

“Your business, your work.”


is it in you

The Gatorade slogan above is asking the question of do you have what it takes. And that does not have to be sports, it can be anything in life. And since this is the month for business, I am asking do you have what it takes to make your business work over the long haul? Or better yet, what it becomes is solely up to the amount of work you put into it. You want to grow a business into a company that will do big numbers, then you better figure out a plan to build that business. Because you are going to have to have a sound plan over a long period of time.

dreams are just dreams

We close our eyes, and see our small business as bigger than what it is. You open a beauty salon, and want to one day have salons across the country. But what you will do in this one salon will say a lot about how you are going to build your next three. And those four will say a lot about how you plan on building your next five to ten. Because the dream is just a dream unless there is a plan put in place that will be used to execute each and everyday. But without a sound plan those dreams will soon wither away into anger and frustration.

down in the dumps

I have felt this point in my life where I have hit a wall and it is hard for me to get past or over this wall. And this will be a defining moment where you can either sink or continue to swim. And that is why it is important you build from the bottom so you know how to get over this point. And example would be someone who lucked up and became famous from a video on Instagram. Next thing you know they are everywhere. Then in less than a year you never hear from them again. The reason being is that they didn’t build to that point. They got lucky from a video, but then hit a hard time and couldn’t regain. People who climb rarely fall after a hard time because they have been there before.

I am from Racine, Wisconsin where I was raised until I graduated high school back in the year 2006. That entire time growing up in my mother's house, I was a student athlete. My goal was to embark on a general business career or athletics. But injuries through sports stopped a sports path, so I decided upon business with a focus in marketing. While attending undergraduate school at University of Wisconsin-Parkside, I began to write screenplays in my senior year. At first it was for fun, but I quickly learned writing allow me to transfer negative energy into characters I created. This led to a decrease in depressing mood swings, which in turn boosted my quality of life. After undergraduate school in May of 2011, I move to New York City for graduate school. While pursuing my MBA, I continued to write screenplays, but always wanted to write novels as well. I finished graduate school back in the year 2014, but wrote screenplays until I began thinking of my first short film, first First Day Fears. While finishing my fifth feature length screenplay, I started to write my first novel this year. So far, I have finished my first short film and working on my next one (Freedomless Speech), and recently self published my first novel (The Boy Who Could Talk To God) and short stories book (Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Volume 1). My feature length screenplays have been put on temporary hold to finish my short films and books, but I am making good progress on my sixth feature length screenplay. With year 2017 ending, I am currently writing my novel Precinct 86 and Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Vol. 2. I have started teaching myself photography and will pursuing that by summer of 2018, along with my videography, podcast later on, and more research for my documentary.
