“Who shall I listen to?”


advice-advice-advice

When earning a living, we have all these questions regarding what to do with money as you make it. And the reply to that is, be mindful of the advice one gives to you. Because in this society we have all these advisers financially, but few who actually know what they are talking about. And one big mistake at times is listening to the people around you. Your friends and family are not always the best candidates to go to for advice. They give you advice based on what they think they know about money. These are not the expert advisers when dealing with monetary concerns a lot of times.

don’t just hear what you want

In the event that you do get some good advice we as people have been known to not adhere because we want to hear the advice that we want to hear. Then the best thing is to not ask someone for their input. Because if what you wanted to hear was right then why are you reaching out for advice. The job of an adviser is not to align themselves with your thought process. Or nurture what you believe to be true with some sort of validation. They give it to you straight and it is what it is. And if you want that ego boost, then go to your family and friends. They will give you the seeds for ego growth.

beware of false prophets

Now, be cautious, everyone with a suit and a tie are not your friends. It’s like the old saying, “If it’s too good to be true, then usually it is.” They promise you all these hopes and dreams with these big pay outs, but then they are not telling you that this is just not how money is made. There is either some fraudulent scheme you’re in, or you’re going to lose your money in this big investment. So know what it is you’re doing because investing in these guys, an you’ll lose money faster than listening to friends and family.

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.
