Jay Carteré | Jay Cartere |Being Self-Employed Doesn't Mean You're A Bum

As someone who’s pursuing self employment, I have realised that amidst the day to day stresses of running a business, there are also many other negative factors that come into play.

Jay Carteré | Jay Cartere |Being Self-Employed Doesn't Mean You're A BumIt feels as though most of my family assumes I sit on my ass all day watching The Jeremy Kyle Show and Eastenders, while dipping my hand into a bag of Doritos and generally not doing anything productive.

This is far from the reality. But society has conditioned the majority of people to think that the only avenue to success is to work for someone else and suffocate their dreams with a Febreeze-scented pillow.

And if you work for someone else that started their own business, why is it that you believe it’s impossible to do it yourself?

Jay Carteré | Jay Cartere |Being Self-Employed Doesn't Mean You're A BumDon’t let social pressures stop you from chasing your dream. If you believe in it and you work at it, it can usually be done.

Being self-employed doesn’t mean you’re a bum.

About the author 

Jay Cartere

Who is Jay Cartere?

It's a long story, but I'm going to make it short because I respek your time...

I'm a producer, rapper, singer and creative entrepreneur from London.

My musical journey started in 2007 when I decide to spit some lyrics to a grime beat... through a laptop.

That's right, no mic or anything - I was spitting DIRECTLY into the laptop cuz.

It's safe to say things have changed since then...

But, that's not all:

The journey has never been easy...I had to put my entrepreneurial mind to work and figure this stuff out.

I taught myself how to record and engineer my music.

I also had to learn how to film and edit music videos.

How to market, promote, sell and build a business.

Poverty gave me the pressure I needed to develop these skills...

Now I'm gonna share those skills with you...
