I am a 44 years old. I have worked extremely hard againt physical and emotional odds in my life to make a success of my life and career. 7 Years ago I opened a unique business that was a overnight success.
I was able to employ staff and teach them skills, that was inspiring to me as i opened the business only to have a secure income for myself after I lost everything I owned at 32 after a very traumatic event.
Last year I decided to sell my business at a good price because of the instability of my country and the economy.
It turned out I couldn't emigrate as I did not have enough money.
I moved to another City and in good faith bought a business to sustain me. In short I was scammed out of all my money.
I turned to friends and family to start up a new business like I had before, but I am afraid that before it has a chance of success it will fold, as I do not have the capital to sustain the business through the winter and myself, and debt is killing me.
I am starting this campaign, very reluctantly, to help me keep my doors open and help me sustain myself until the business will. I don't mind sleeping in a shack, but I have 3 dogs that I will never part with. They are my family. At the moment I am afraid that I will have nowhere to go or live. I know the business will succeed, I just need help to make it till summer.
A few weeks ago I had emergency back surgery and this has also put a hold on work for me as I am a therapist.
So if you find it in your heart to help fund my future, I will be gratefull.
I promise every person who helps me to donate whatever is raised extra to donate to worthy causes and charities.
I am someone who loves giving and always have, maybe someone will help me now.
This is my last resort and it feels like begging, but if a person has nowhere to go, pride has to take a backseat.
Thank you for reading this, thank you for your time.
