Hi everyone, I am a single mother of two children. Until recently I was stuck on benefits. I really badly wanted to work but the jobcentre said there was no point till my youngest was at school full time. That's not for another 3 years!
Despite their poor support and giving me lots of wrong information I worked really hard to set up my own business and finally get free from living off welfare after years of feeling bored and frustrated. I have set up a holistic therapy business and I am getting lots of clients and they are recommending me to friends and I am getting lots of rebookings. But things are always shaky when you don't know how many clients you will have booked in a month from now and I have two children to support. I have been offered regular work but I am going to have to turn it down if I don't get a car soon to be able to transport my equipment there. Also, if I have a car I can do mobile therapy work and attract clients from further afield.
I have worked so hard to get to where I am and am doing really well considering I haven't been going that long but things are at a standstill now without a car and that is where this crowdfunder comes in. I desperately need some money for a car, tax and insurance so I can build my business and take on the regular work. Regular work is like the holy grail for self employed peeps like me and I can't afford to lose out on it.
Please help, your money would make such a difference to the lives of my children because I will be able to get more work and provide properly for them. I had a crowdfunder before to help me get my business off the ground to begin with but I didn't reach my target. With this site though I receive whatever the end amount is and every little bit helps right now. Thanks so much!
