I am asking for $2000.00 to help with 2 things – One, to pay my next month’s rent of $950.00, and two, to advertise my business. The top photo is of the amount I currently have in my bank and the photo below is of my Etsy stats over the last 30 days. The reason it says $3 for 3 sales is because basically all my other profit got taken by way of fees on the website. I still have some money coming in from a job I did, so that’s why the money would be for next month’s rent
I’ve been doing a lot of random freelance work to get by so that I can make my primary focus my new business and get that off the ground – Which has been okay so far, but there’s been a major lull in work lately causing a bit of a panic in me, so I’m trying to get ahead of the issue where rent is concerned. I haven’t been able to put really any money towards advertising because everything I make goes to necessities (rent, food, other bills). But my dream is for my business (Lucid Flower Dream Interpretation) to be my main focus and main source of income… But If I can’t focus on it because I’m fighting to survive, and I can’t pay for any advertising, I’m never going to reach that dream. I’ve done everything for my business myself – All the designing needed, a simple website, social media, creating videos for social media, expanded on my natural talent and knowledge by taking a course for dream interpretation as well as spiritual coaching, and I did all the writing – I’ve even been giving away free interpretations via reddit as a way to advertise for free. To put it simply – I’m just looking for a break… For someone to sympathize with the difficulty of trying to live one’s dreams by way of being a small business owner. My drive and motivation to make this business work is always at a 10, I just simply don’t have the financial resources to back it all up.
How I would use the remaining money after putting rent aside:
The Etsy website has the option to pay for advertising, so that is where I will put about a third of the leftover money (after putting $950 aside). I will also use a third for Instagram advertising and the last bit for TikTok advertising (likely more will be used on TikTok as that is the most popular social media app right now).
Thank you in advance to anyone who’s willing to help me out. You truly are an angel.
