“Blessing in disguise.”


no pay for experience

You want to go off and make a lot of money one day, fine. But when you first start out, there is generally no money to be made in your career endeavor. But when you are dealing with a generation that wants things now, then you are going to have problems in building. You need to understand that no pay could provide you with the skills and connections to do more in life. But when all you can see is what is right in front of you, then you sometimes kill your blessings.  So know that everything does not come in the form of a check.

you have nothing to bargain with

When you are a younger age you don’t have anything to negotiate with. You can’t just walk in and make demands like you have been doing it for so long. You have to be doing this for some time in order to make a consistent income. Consistent income takes time where you have to do not only build your income elsewhere but build your dream on another time. So you have to have a full time job and this gig that may not pay much if anything. And the idea of doing something for free kills people. Only thing is that you have to do it for free because there is nothing to be made off your ideas. So you have to work extra hard.

its a marathon

Understand that we all have a start. And if you want to be anywhere in life, you have to willing to deal with what comes with being in the position. You have to understand how each of the moving parts work. You are in such a rush to get to where you have to go, but why. You want to try to learn all the moving parts around the job. You don’t just get the job and make money. Understand what others around you do. It will make you a better person in your career.

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.
