My name is Dan and I'm 36 years old. I would describe myself as being a workaholic and motivated type of person, always seeking new challenges.
I have been in a relationship with my actual partner for over 12 years now and we're currently living in Portsmouth, UK together with our 4 years old son.
For the past 6 years I have been working as a taxi driver in Portsmouth, UK. Right now, I'm about to start my own company but the money is getting short and I would like to kindly ask for your generosity in order to fulfill my dream.
I am dedicated man who always liked to exceed all expectations. Being a taxi driver I had the opportunity to meet people from different backgrounds and cultures and understand their needs. Through my business, I would like to offer them the comfort and care free feeling that everyone's looking for when traveling.
So far, I have managed to purchase 4 cars for the purpose of my business. Three of my cars are estate (wagons) cars for bigger luggage compartment and the 4th one is a top of the range saloon for our future business travel costumes. All cars are provided with free Wi-Fi onboard.
Having used my skills and the help from my best friend who is an IT expert, we have managed to build a great website which is crucial for this type of business. There is still a lot of work to be done but we are confident that it will be up and running in a month time before the start of the holiday season.
Currently, working with me, I have 4 hard working and enthusiastic drivers who always showed dedication and professionalism through their attitude. Together we sum over 18 years of experience in this trade.
Although I have put a great amount of time and effort, as well as all off savings into this business, I am at the point now where I still need some extra financing in order to achieve my business goals. The money that I will hopefully raise will be spent wisely as shown below:
-£160 on local authority licence fee
-£600 on drivers branded uniform (8 T-shirts, 8 shirts, 8 pair of trousers)
-£800 on business cards, flyers
-£200 on stationary
-£1000 in website optimization & Google Ad
-£900 on Facebook Ad campaign (£30/day for a month)
-£1680 on office rent (6 months paid in advance at £70/week)
I truly believe that we offer a genuine choice for people requiring a professional service for private car hire in Portsmouth and South Coast area. Our aim is to treat our customers as we would like to be treated ourselves, with respect, professionalism and respect their privacy.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for supporting my project, a challenge that became my way of living in the past few years. All your help towards this will be greatly appreciated.
As Winston Churchill used to say: "We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give" and we want to give the best to all our customers.
