My name is Raneeta Gill. I am a woman and a entrepreneur. I got into this business that provides affordable luxury cruises for my customers and normal people to experience life and to create wonderful memories that we make possible. It could be a old uncle and aunty couple renewing their vows in the sunset or charity cruises for orphan children experiencing a nice cruise with us. Beautiful memories that puts a smile on every passengers face when they've experienced the cruise with us and gives me a purpose because i can make people happy.
I have been in this business for the past 3 years. I am a woman who has been told that what i am doing is crazy and that i will never make it through. It's been a uphill but i'm not giving up. I am writing today and getting this Go Get Funding a chance is because i've ran out of options.
I am a person who fights against all odds and persevere to achieve goals, the old school way. But lately i have been put in such a predicament that i am losing hope and here i am seeking for help from other entrepreneurs, business women and women who believe in being a strong woman and have hope in women.
Why do i need the funds and a investor is because my business partner decided to walk out on the business and has given me limited time to buy him out. I cant raise the funds overnight and i have used all my money to drive the business and grow it as much as i can, but its still insufficient. I manage to secure new customers and etc, but i will not be paid as soon and i'm on a deadline. If i do not buy him out, I will lose the only boat that i have now and my business that i have worked so hard for all these years will be gone.
I am in a stage now where i am in need of funds and i have tried everything, loan applications and seeking for investors that always seem to have a agenda that is not professional and expects that a woman would spread her legs to get funded for something she believes in. I walked out of that meeting feeling angry and degraded, disappointed, frustrated and at that point i wished i was a man. Is it because i am Indian, because i am in asia, because I am a Woman?? It should not be this hard because i am a woman!! I am being very honest about my experience and i never ever thought that in my life i would ever share such information on any platform, but here i am.
I have less than a month to raise this funds, hence creation of this Go Get Funding Account. I hope that this goes out to everyone who believes that a woman is capable to do more and all women who believes that a woman should not be taken advantage of to get a funding for a business that she believes in & worked so hard for.
Having Faith and hope. Please visit my facebook page to see what we do and why this is so personal and important to me:
