MAKING SOME GOOD MONEY: WHAT DOES IT MEAN

“A lot to me, not much to you.”

I live in New York City, a place where the income is so different from the rest of the country. But also the cost of living makes things also different. And with that said, we must have the conversation that talks about real money versus low income. And we have to understand what is a lot to some might be little to others. For example, $60,000 per year is not much in New York City, but a lot in Wisconsin where I come from. Then again, I am a single man with no children, so even in New York City $60,000 is good money in New York City for me.

Are you a parent? If so, then you know that children and be quite expensive. And they are the ones that determine if you make real money. Now, at certain amounts of money, we know is amazing. Like athletes and entertainers, but most people are not them. So you have to look at life through a rational lens. And why is it so expensive to raise? It’s because you have to take into consideration neighborhoods, schools districts, clothes, food, health, etc. And that is something that can drive up any cost when looking at income.

Now, here is the part where you can anticipate where you can see how much you can afford. Not just cost of living, but also where you can see what amenities the money can afford you. Because no one just wants to work and survive. We all have wants on top of needs. Just make sure you know what you can afford. Because anything beyond that point is living above your means. Then you find yourself in a weird predicament.

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.
