Before reading on I just want to let everyone one know that I'm not trying to give anyone a sob story or ask for anything for free, I'm looking for a little help to support my family and in return im hope to be in a position to offer a decent return on investment for anyone kind enough to help support my idea. Thank you for your support.
Just to give you a brief overview of my situation after years of grinding away in the city for over 10 years I decided in 2011 to setup my own consulting business, I really wanted to say I had successfully run my own company but a couple of years on I have pretty much lost everything, car, homes, credit rating. The most important thing that I have at the moment is my wife and my baby girl who was born 3 months ago. The period before she was born was the saddest of my life, a few weeks before my wife was due to give birth I had to tell her we couldn't even afford to buy food shopping on my credit card because my direct debits had bounced because stubbornly I thought I could make things work.
I recently returned to work as I probably should have done earlier, im in a stressful sales job which is pretty much on graduate wages but unfortunately beggars can't be choosers, im probably lucky to see my daughter for 5 minutes each evening but strangely i do still feel lucky. im trying to make the most of everything whilst trying to keep on top of the bills and support my wife.
I want to make sure I can do all I can for my family and rather then look for a simple donation I would like to offer people the opportunity to invest in a small business which my wife and I will be setting up selling Baby Clothes and Shoes. This something I intend to do at the weekend and after work as I really need 2 incomes so that I can have a bit of spare money for essential items and hopefully be able to buy Christmas presents.
I have never asked for anything in my life and im not asking for handouts, any people that are kind enough to offer me some money to get this business off the ground I would like to double their investment when the business becomes profitable and believe me im at a stage in my life where I will do anything I can to make this a sucess and give my family a decent life. I have done extensive research into this business and looking at other companies that have been selling the same range I can see this becoming profitable within 5 to 6 months.
Any investors who would like extra information please do let me know. The money will be used to buy stock, stalls, website design and online marketing.
