I’m Broke Baby

They say in order to solve a problem you have to acknowledge the problem. So here I am, and I am broke. Not Money Making Mitch broke but can these three eggs in my fridge last me until next paycheck broke. I’m so broke I asked the city bus driver for a ride, told him next time I got him. In a matter of months I went from just over broke to broke. Guess I was never far from a financial shortage because I’m right back.

I had the belief that I was in control of my finances. My bank account statements shoot down that belief like an unarmed black man. The reckless spending on food, liquor, and ladies has caught up with me and my money. Do you blame a young dude for trying to live a good life filled with pleasure? No, but I do blame myself for not having enough discipline to put the pleasure to the side for a moment or two. Young Sweet Jones is looking down at me shaking his head right now. I could hear his voice saying, “Stop all that tricking. Purse first, ass last.” Meaning business over pleasure.

Now I got to work on a solution to this personal crisis and making sure that I do not go back to broke once I’ve solved it because being broke sucks. My solution is a hustle or side hustle. A hustle where I can use my skills and talents to generate an extra source of income.  Either a hustle I find or one I create. Something that does not seem like work because I work already and I don’t like that place. Plus getting a hustle would be a great opportunity to learn how to hustle because Lord knows I do not know how to hustle properly.

A Year On The Job

Well, I spent a year at my current job. That knowledge made me think. I should be at the level in my financial life where my money level is I Got a Couple Dollars. Not just over broke. I’m supposed to be Big Boss K yet I’m out here being You Got A Spill To Clean Kilien. Forever grateful I got a job. It is times where I enjoy being there. The people are nice too. It’s just career-wise I could do better. Would be great to have a career that I enjoy the lifestyle, get paid well, and still get time for myself. My excuse for not finding this career is that I want to get into too many careers. Never been a quitter but I quit with the excuse-making.

Fell Into The Nine to Five Trap

Yo, I just got free from this hypnosis. This whole time I thought I was Full-time hustling but I am full-time slaving. My job is a trap. It’s a false hustle, and I have been giving more time to it then to hustling. 

The blame is on me. I got addicted to their money. Slaving for wealth on a wealthy white man dollar. The pay at my job is below my personal minimum wage too. Explains why I frequently have financial shortages.

Don’t get me wrong for I am grateful for what I make. I rather self-employment. Being the boss is better. Let’a not for get I’m a hustler. I just refuse to be broke something this job ensures doesn’t happen. Literary Hustle is a great hustle but it doesn’t get me paid.

The rapper Jeezy said, “You Gotta Believe.” So I’ll start believing self-employment is going to work out better for me. Also that the payout will be a whole lot better than the checks I receive from working the nine-to-five trap.

So I am starting a travel agency. Our Literary Hustle Travel Agency. Our services are traveling to the beautiful island of Haiti this December thru February.  For the great price of $3500 USD you will be able to experience the Haitian Culture, taste the finest Haitian Cuisine, and experience nightlife like no other Caribbean island. If you like the sizzle I accept bitcoin, cash and gift cards.

Got to free me of this nine-to-five trap. I’ll be on the winning end if I get fired or leave.

The Professional Driver

I am back. The Literary Hustler the known front runner. Here to give you the best writing I can give you at the moment. I’ll start off by letting you know it’s all good, man.

I recently learned how to drive a manual transmission. It took me long enough. Can you believe it, I am a professional driver who did not know how to drive stick shift. But not often am I asked to drive a manuel. It’s mostly automatic transmission.

I do recommand everyone to learn how to drive stick shift. To me its fun. Also it’s driving, and driving is engaging. Maybe, or maybe not, I’ll reach that age where I don’t want to drive no more but for now my foot is on the gas.

Like I said I am a professional driver. If you are paying right, get ready for the drive of your life. I do accept bitcoin or cash. I’m nothing like your average driver. Sometimes you get Hoke Colburn, or Frank Martin (heard he calls himself Shaw now), or Brain O’ Conner but in the end you get me. I only know that I am good at what I do, and if somebody tells you the same they’re telling the truth.

Novice Humorist

Like any great writer, I am starting off as a novice. That means I don’t know if my writing is funny or not. I’m just equipt with a positive mindset. So I only believe what I am writing falls into the category of humor. Plus as they say, anything worth doing is worth doing poorly at first. Besides me saying I am a humorist nothing really qualifies me for the job. I could say I’m a funny muthafucker but you all don’t know that, and I only think I am funny because people love to say I am, especially the ladies. The compliment from the ladies usually comes in a flirtatious tone after the love tap. Also, the world is filled with funny people. I think most people living will get the remark, “you’re so funny.” Let’s not forget the internet. and how it is fueling everybody who has an inspiration to be a comedian. I guess I am part of the dime of dozen. All I say is hop on Twitter to see the millions of people using their 240 characters to generate a laugh. If I had twitter I probably would be among that mass group of people.

Literary Hustle #3

I see my habits for my job is changing. I am caring for getting every last dime I signed up for at my job. Yes, I work a job but it’s nothing like my hustle. My job is okay. It’s like every other job in America. I mean Literary Hustle is a job but it’s a job I like. This job is a job-job. Like punch-in, punch-out, set schedule and wasting all your skills and talents for minimum wage. The reason I am working this job is that I thought I was falling off. I am the type of nigga that will work a job before I fall off. These are decisions a modern man has to make. I am the type that enjoys the life of having paper in my pocket. Aristotle once said, “Money is a guarantee that we may have what we want in the future.” So that money is here to ensure that I can afford what I want in the future. I am also the type of nigga who seems to be around a bunch of people who ain’t got it. Yet I love those people because they are my family.

Literary Hustle #2

I think I am the only person who is excited about bitcoin. Well I know I am part of a small niche of people who believe in bitcoin. Most people think it is a Ponzi scheme, a scam, or another bubble threatening to cause financial loss to those invested in it. I don’t think that. My thought is that bitcoin is really the currency of the internet. A form of money that is powered by the internet and lives because the internet runs; meaning the only way to stop bitcoin is to shut down the internet. I doubt shutting down the internet will happen especially as the world gets more and more connected to the web. The problem with the bitcoin is that people are not willing to sacrifice the old for the new. The old being government issued bills, debit and credit cards, and checks. This new form of money is completely decentralized. It is not controlled by anybody but the person who owns the bitcoin. Which means if I own 1000 bitcoins, those 1000 are controlled by me and only me. In addition, this form of money keeps you anonymous. So snoopers will have no idea what you do with your money. The concept of cryptocurrency is also hitting the mainstream media. In the ending of the year 2017, the bitcoin was hitting highs of $18,000 and more that gave it public attention. As I write this the value of one bitcoin is $13,000. The wizard of communication, Mark Zuckerburg, is also accepting the bitcoin concept. He plans on releasing his own form of cryptocurrency for his platform Facebook. His coin will be called Libra. The irony of this new coin is that the Winklevoss twins – the ones who sparked the inspiration for Facebook – are major bitcoin investors and own a bitcoin exchange called Gemini. It could explain why Zuckerberg decided to make his own rather than accept the one already available. Not doubting Facebook’s new crypto because Facebook dominates the internet. But I think it is right to accept Bitcoin and join the movement to revolutionize the way we use money. I accept bitcoins. If anybody wants to make a payment to me in bitcoin go head. I am still thinking of a hustle to make bitcoin because as the world continues to move in this direction it is going to be possible to make purchases with bitcoin from almost anywhere in the world. So you should be thinking about this change too.

Literary Hustle #1

I try not to lie. I said I was going to provide weekly content and I failed to do that. I have no excuses but this is still new to me. I am improving because I am back with another post. Since my first post, I have been busy with one of my hustles, and I took a trip to San Francisco, California.

My hustle is my hustle. Still not doing something I love but I am making money. If you don’t hustle you don’t eat. My next hustle is going to be better than this hustle. Now I am saving up to get a new home. Don’t think I am bragging it just my living situation needs a major upgrade. Saving isn’t my strong habit but I am getting better. Constantly working on improving my financial habits. Right now work on making this hustle experience better.

I took a 6-hour flight from New York to California. The beautiful city of San Francisco is completely different from any city I been too. It was a relaxing feeling, and the relaxing feeling came before I took a pull of the weed. First time in California. I also planned to visit Oakland because the black population in Oakland is decreasing. Want to visit it while it’s still a black city. One of the black cities a person like me want to see. I am the type of person who likes fun and entertainment when I come to your city too; and all that means is have music, fine women, food, and liquor, and a nigga will enjoy himself.

Now I want to be a physicist so I’m going back to school. Yeah, I’m an enroll into college to get me a Physics degree. I heard the sky’s the limit so why not. I got to see Elon Musk reason for this burst of wanting to become a scientist. I want to be able to talk Physics with him. I read Albert Einstein theories but a nigga like me understood nothing Einstein wrote on. Elon Musk also tells bad jokes. It’s basically him saying things in a sarcastic way. Don’t get me wrong his jokes do generates laughs.

Literary Hustle Introduction

Hello Internet, and welcome to Literary Hustle! My name is Kilien D. St. Jacques the owner of this blog here. Literary Hustle is an outlet for getting my writing out to the world. I am a literary hustler. You may be asking what is a literary hustler? Well, it’s a cool way to say, a writer. That is what I am, a writer, but I am a hustler too. I’m literally hustling my writing.

Literary Hustle is here to bring entertainment for readers. I have proclaimed myself as a humorist so most of my writing will have humor in it. If you fail to laugh at my writing don’t blame me but blame your sense of humor. I will be consistent with the content, posting at least once a week. Content that will be uploaded will be jokes, stories, things that get me mad and other things. So I am asking for you to share if you like the content.

A little bit about me is that I am tall, dark, and handsome. I am a magnet to money, money loves me. I also like to flirt with ladies and tell a lot of jokes. I was awarded a class clown during my time in high school. I did go to university to pursue a journalism career but dropped out after three semesters. Although I say I am a writer I want to be more than just that. Figured if Benjamin Franklin can be more than one thing I can too. Two life goals I don’t mind sharing: to live the best life I can live and to make a lot of money. If I make a lot of money off this blog I’ll like to thank you in advance but that is not my focus with Literary Hustle.

In my best Curtis Mayfield rendition, I’m your pusherman. Enjoy!
