“Mind your money.”


started at the bottom

So many people who grow up in poor environments have these dreams of making it in life. A goal that is very broad and ambiguous when you hear the word making it. But there is another side to making it in life. And that side that how do we make money, do all that work to get it, then blow it to the wind. And it’s simple, we think the money will keep coming. We don’t think about tomorrow because tomorrow is not on the minds of people. We make so much money and over time forget about the days of being broke. And that’s when you make the vital mistake. Once you forget, you find yourself back in the place once again.

think first, spend last

There is a saying, “Hey, if you got it, flaunt it.” And that sounds good, but the life that you might be living could all fall apart because it’s not a sustainable existence. You have to think about tomorrow, but that’s hard when you don’t have to think about tomorrow. So many people ask how do you let your spending get out of control. But they have to always watch their finances Image result for broke athletes espnreally closely. They live on the edge of losing everything, so they don’t understand getting and then spending beyond what you have to spend. But guess what, the people spending were the people at one point in time who said they don’t understand why so many people with money go broke.

your mind must be cleaned

If you want to keep the money you earned you can no longer think poor. You have to always keep cleaning out the bad stuff that you once thought was a good idea before you started making money. Because your thoughts at a certain level might be rational to you and everyone around you at that current level, but they keep you in that same position. And you don’t realize your mind needs cleaning until you move to a different level. And then everyone below that point you see their mistakes. And that’s when you think to yourself, “Oh, ok, this is the problem.” Sad thing is, so many won’t understand or listen to you. And they will never leave their position. And if you don’t watch your spending you will be back in the position you worked so hard to leave.

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.
