Hello Everyone, Thank you for taking the time to read my post. I'm not here seeking help for a rare disease or some catchy invention. I'm just a regular guy with extraordinary talent who needs some financial assistance. Just over 2 years ago, I was laid off from my job in Corporate America. After all my dedication and hard work though chose to downsize and I was amonst those that were let go. Instead of hanging my head low or being discouraged, I decided to start my own business. With an intital investment of $2,000 I began a carpet cleaning and hardwood floor restoration company. Business was off to a slow start but began to increase as my customer base grew. Over a 2 years period, I have invested $7,500 into the business. It's very hard to remain relevant in a highly competitive market. Professionalism, promptness, education, advertising and proper equipment are needed to do so. I have alot of those bases covered and currently enrolled in an Entrepreneurship degree program at The Forbes School of Business in order to gain more know-how. Professionalism and promptness are in the DNA of my business modulenl. The area that is lacking is in funding for advertising and equipment. My business needs a major ad campaign, a new van and updated equipment. My work ethic and quality of work are superior. I treat people fairly and maintain good business practices. Belief in oneself is not enough to be successful. One must also take action and explore all options. Hence the reason I am posting on this site. I'm all out of options and pray, hope and believe that someone in this great big world that we live in will read this and be compelled to aid my business. Thank you so much for your time and consideration. It is greatly appreciated. Sincerely, A small business owner that wants to be in big business!
