My names Harry, I’m currently in the military as an engineer. I’m not content with my career choice, I don’t think I would be as a civilian either. I want to give my family a very comfortable life, and I find it odd I’ve found myself on this site. I’m just getting by, I’ve avoided debt for the most part but I just don’t feel like I’ll reach that next level.
The next level being doing it for myself.
My contract ends in a year and after that it’ll be searching for the next job, getting a mortgage and settling down somewhere else. But I’ll be doing my bit for someone else and I can’t stop that feeling of wanting to wake up everyday and do it for myself. I joined the army to be a part of something and fit in as a moving part in this big machine working towards something. But I just feel like a spare. I hate this feeling, is this what life is? Being the spare waiting to feel like you’re needed to achieve something larger than yourself?
I want to create a business. I do my wife’s head in with the amount of talk I throw her way about a ‘new business idea.’
Refurbing truck beds for a profit. Peer to peer lending sites. A beeswax brand for beauty products. Even owning my own land to farm. You name it, I’ve probably told my wife I want to do it. But she’s right when she tells me, ‘Do what you know, research it. Or you know, just focus on your career.’ She plays it safe and I get why.
This is the annoying thing with life, you earn enough to get by but you don’t have the money in your pocket to send you to the next step with the added security of if it fails, it’ll be ok. You can’t take that leap of improving your quality of life because sometimes, it’s probably not worth the risk because it’s everything for something. And that’s why I’m here, I won’t ever make enough with my skillset and education through a normal job and have that monetary security to have a dig at this.
So I guess that’s where I really need to get to my point. What is my point? I want to take a punt at trying to build something for myself. Get it to a point I can live off it. Get it to a point where someone works with me so they can afford to live their life. Anything to take the leap without risking it all and creating a profitable business however big or small.
The truck bed Idea is definitely where I would like to start and maybe down the line venture into other ideas. But to begin I need to afford all the tools required to complete the job. An area of work to actually store and work on the truck beds on a rented basis to start and lastly the beds bought from auction and their transport to the area of refurbishment.
Hopefully this finds you well and I hope this text is enough to convince you that this isn’t just free money but it’s a tool to create and grow something and that I have the motivation and driving force to do as I say. To do it for myself with your help.
