Now this might sound weird, or selfish to some of you, I have exhausted all other options. I need help to further my education, to take a coding boot-camp and get help getting out of my financial crisis. Some might think "oh he is lazy" and "why should i help him". For starters, I probably had a job in more fields than most, I been Electrician, General Contractor(training), Concession, Tech, Salesman, Telemarketer(most will leave knowing that), I have done plumbing, I have fixed air conditioning, I have done construction, I have also been a bartender and i most recently was a co-founder of a business, later about that
I lost my job a few months ago, and my business months before that, I didn't let losing the business get me down, i got back on my feet and worked hard to make barely anything, just to survive and feed myself. I have been driving the same car since 03 an, while working at my last job, the brakes broke.. The day after this happens, I was let go. I currently have no way of getting around and can barely afford food. I apply to many jobs and get hired, but I have no way of actually getting there. I drove my car using the E-brake to stop, but now the E-brake isn't working anymore.
In the multiple spare time I have at home, I do not just sit around and do nothing. I been studying my butt off, started learning Ruby and HTML and some CSS. I have some knowledge in it, but am far from where i need to be, to make money I have sold almost everything in my room, except my PC, I need that to code and learn. I had a college fund that was going to help me with this, but without my knowledge my family cashed it out and bought who knows with it. I am not here complaining, saying my life is hard, people have it worst then me, I do have a loving family and great friends, but financially I am depressed. I just want to get the money, go to the coding boot camp and get a start in the right path. I will continue to do side job, fixing pc's remotely, until I can make enough to at-least get my car fixed so I can get a job and start saving towards boot camp, any money I do make goes towards food and what bills i have.
Earlier i mentioned, I was a co-founder of a business, well I had a partner and he promised me all these numbers and "great things" I left my current job to go start a business with him and i trusted him, he seemed like a trust worthy guy, I work 8am - 5pm, but was sometimes at the "office" until 11pm, I worked hard and for months, I was in charge of all the tech work and any technical issues we may have. Months after all this happened, he says "we should just take a break" he assured me and my other co-workers "the business is not dead", so i was okay with this, well he started to ignore my calls and e-mails and then i see he got a job somewhere else, after ignoring for a month or so, he finally tells me "I have moved on from the business and you should too".. We made a profit and I didn't see a dime.. He basically took the money and left, it was a lesson and life and while the business failed, at least i tried and worked hard, this is where I actually learned i wanted to code.
So now I am here asking for help, anything any amount will be much appreciated, maybe I can get people who have been where I am right now and understand that sometimes, even the strongest people, need some help. I have said what i feel and i hope whoever reads this, can understand where I am coming from and help me out
P.S. My dad left me when I was little and my mom is a server, so I can't get help from them..
Thanks, any questions feel free to ask
