I have never asked for help financially from anyone so it's extremely hard for me to do it in the mass aspect like this. However, at 30 I don't want to be on disability, I want to start a DJ business for weddings, private events, Corp events, and community functions i.e. School dances.
I also want to delve deeper into creating a full studio in my area. I would love to help young musicians professionally record their talent while applying to colleges, and also create music myself. Then there is the aspect of a recording label. But I don't just want to make money, I want to also be a community volunteer for fundraisers and other functions. I do have a solid business plan that I have calculated making a quality living while growing the business as well.
So why now, over the last year I have had great things happen to me, and some not so great. I have ADHD, high functioning autism, an IQ of 187 and was diagnosed with early onset Parkinson's. The Parkinson's was caught after I had two grand maul seizures with no epileptic activity. However I meet my fiancée who learned about everything thats "wrong" with me and for the first time in my life I had someone encouraging me to follow my passion in life, Which has always been music.
I have done DJ and studio work before on a smaller scale but was told by a visiting DJ that I had natural talent. I practiced on equipment my cousin had and got better but never had the confidence to start a business path with my skills. So what do I need the financing for?
Equipment; pro DJ controllers, mixers, sound systems (PA), mic's, other studio/DJ equipment software and hardware. My brother is building my studio for me, and I am getting the necessaries to run my business but not asking for funding for everything I need right away. Just vitals to get me going, and I have a solid business plan that will turn that into business growth and provide me a suitable income to live off of. I would need a much larger amount to be at a completely pro level in both the DJ world and production and studio. But I am asking for a helping hand to get going so I do not rely on disability, and can leave a legacy for my daughter by setting a good community example. And I hope to help others on this site as they did me. I have calculated and done the research to know with help getting going I can grow to my full need within 2-3 years. However I can't get even a PT job now due to my issues, but I can create a quality life in the music industry. My passion, business management skills, personal drive, and a solid business plan are rock solid and with your gracious help I can follow that path.
