BE WHAT YOU MAKE YOURSELF: IN THE ERA OF SELF EMPLOYMENT A CAREER CAN COME FORM ANYWHERE

“Writing your own check.”


create your role

In America today, you are more than any other time able to write your own check. You can choose your own role and be your own boss. As a matter of fact, over the next few decades, more than half of working Americans will have some sort of self-employment income coming into their households. And this is necessary considering so many jobs that we have come to know and love are heading overseas to underdeveloped nations. The reason being that it’s cheaper to make the product over there because more people and the raw materials to build are cheap as well. Now what Americans have to do is come up with another income more passive to subsidize our living. But it’s not as easy a you think.

the climb to a dollar

If you want to make another income, you need to really hone in on a craft. You don’t just go outside and start making extra money. You have to work at something then go out and build from there enough to money. And the reason being is that it is very hard to consistently make money in this country. Because there is always the threat of competition and falling of the creative wagon. People want consistency you may not be able to bring to them. So go out and learn and learn then build. This is where people give up and quit because they want it now.

f u money

Ever hear of something called “fuck you money.” Most people in America will never know what this is like. Hell, in my position, I don’t have it. But F-You-Money is vey broad and ambiguous. You don’t need to be rich. The average person will be homeless in just a few weeks if they lost their job today. And this means having some sort of cushion of side money to hold you over is important. That is where F-You-Money comes into play. Doesn’t have to be much, just enough to last you until you find more work.

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.
