In 2014 I opened a retail business. For the first 2 years it was doing very well and I expanded and opened an additional 2 stores. In April 2017 I opened the fourth store. This is where my troubles began. The first store was no longer doing so good as all my energy was focused on the new store. I hired a manager and was under the impression she was doing a good job. She ended up firing half of the employees because she didn’t get along with them, did not provide proper training to new employees and hired people who where horrible at customer service. She was employed from feb. to june. She caused a tremendous amount of damage financially, to the customer service and team moral. I fired her and went back to managing the store myself.
An opportunity came up to take a smaller store with 1/2 the rent on the same street. Also 2 weeks before a big brand approached me about wanting to rent my store. This seemed amazing and the timing was perfect. I closed the contract on the new store and was in final stages of the contract on my store.
A week before the new renters had the appointment to sign they cancled. Now I was stick with 2 stores. I have been trying to rent out the store and in the meantime pay the rent. I am taking money from my other stores to try to cover the expenses but it has completley drained me. My account is 7,000 euro overdrafted, i have fallen behind on many bills. Personal and business. I owe sales tax and socia security.
I am a single mom with 2 kids. I waske up every day at 6:00 and get home afte 20:00. I will not give up. I am a hard worker. Though I also realize that if I dont get some help I will loose my business.
I am 3 months behind on my rent and I will be evicted.
To get out of this mess and get back on track I need 200,000
Please help. I have no where else to turn.
I can email statements and bills for everything upon request.
