LOVE OR MONEY: WHAT IS YOUR REASON FOR BEING IN BUSINESS

“Do you really like what you do?”


like it or love it

A lot of people go into business with different reasons for why they go into business. Some people go in with the idea that they will make a lot of money. And others go into their business with the idea that they are going to provide a service to people. But what is more important when pursuing a business career? Is it the idea that you are potentially going to make a lot of money? Or is the importance more focused on loving the job? Because there are the upsides and the downsides of both. You can’t say one is more important or less than the other. Because it’s all about why that person is pursuing.

for love

When you love something the money will come. And the reason you need to love what you do in business is because you are going to be going at it for a very long time. So you must really have to like what you do. Because initially there is no money in what you going to be doing. So if it’s all about the money you will give up early on in your pursuit. The idea of money will be such pain because in the paradigm of living the money is so slow, you almost feel like why am I doing this everyday. So for money, there is no gratification, especially in the beginning.

for money

We all love doing what we do when we get a chance to do it. But we also have to be practical in the sense where we need to start generating an income. Money pays for food, utilities, living arrangements, healthcare, etc. You have to realize that money has to be a driver in what it is you do. You’re not running a charity and even then money is important. You have needs, but you also have wants. You want to live comfortably, travel, take part in certain leisure activities. So money has to be a priority; is it number one, maybe not, but it is important. We all love the expression, “If you could live comfortably how you want and do your career for free, would you.” It sounds good, but the dough needed to do that is a lot. And for most, that is not the case.

balancing act

You have to find yourself teetering somewhere between the love and money. And at times you will find yourself balanced to one side over the other. No one is completely on one side and happy. If you don’t have a balance then you get depressed having too little and depressed with so much. And the other thing tends to lose out. So find your balance in business prusuits and go for it.

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.
