I have PTSD and have only been able to do volunteer work as long as it involved animals. I'm tired of feeling useless and would love the chance to open a business that would meet all of my requirements to feel at ease. I wish to open my own party supply store. I already know where I want it to be and there's a house for rent right next to it so it's a perfect spot. I can bring my dog to work with me as costumes would be my main product my dog will be my mascot and show off some of my pet costumes. I'd also have costumes available for rent as well. I would be able to be in costume everyday and I deal with people much better that way. I even volunteer at a nursing home my sister works in by dressing up in costume for the holidays. I'm in my element when wearing a costume. I love party planning and would offer that as one of my services. I already have some companies in mind where I would get some of my products. I get so excited when I think about this. I would also begin donating money back to the community as soon as my company becomes self sufficient. I would also hire other people with disabilities as well because I know how difficult it is in the job market. People will be allowed to bring their dog or cat(well behaved) to the store for costume fittings. I hope also to eventually add comic books to my list of products as some of the costumes are comic themed. Help me get started so my business can grow a into a great part of my community. This is my niche in society I just need the money to get started. The money will buy the property, equipment(steam cleaner, etc.), merchandise, licensing/permits, insurance, hire staff including a business manager to help with things like starting a website, and much more. Please help me make this dream a reality.
