Here's my story, I had a great business in West Bloomfield out of my apartment for over 5 years. Then I got married and my husband and I moved to Florida because he had a internet business that got a little bit of money to start back in the year 2001. Well Florida was a nightmare, the internet business fell apart, he got job working for company on commission and I could not get a job doing nails because i didn't have a license in Florida. We struggled big time and then finally gave up and moved back to Michigan in the year 2008. Well things got worse and the economy and job market in Detroit was terrible and getting worse. My husband has been out of work for over 3 years and worked any job he could for minimum wage. Thank god for our parents who have been helping us out!
Since I moved back in 2008 I lost my license to work as a manicurist and I just found out, thanks to the school lying to me, that I can get re-licensed for a small fee and just take a test. The school told me I had to take the classes all over at a cost of $5,000. I have the fee and I am going to take the test in 3 weeks and I have been looking for a job anywhere and no one is hiring.
So I wanted to reach out and see if I could raise money to start my own business. I know I will be sucessful because all the nail places around town are like a factory. I know this market needs and wants personalize services for not only quality nails, but a person to talk to and share with. I am very personable and in the past when I had my own business I was extremely sucessful, i worked 10 to 13 hours per day 6 days a week.
All I am looking for is help to purchase supplies, furniture and get a place to run my business. Since the economy is so bad here I can get a place to run my business very inexpensively and my supplies I can get from the local wholesaler. I am going to start small, just myself at first and once things get rolling I will rent out space to other that believe in my vision and want to offer quality services with a very personal touch.
