My name is Jay. I am an entrepreneur living in Dallas Texas. For the last several years I have been working diligently to acquire the necessary knowledge and skills to build a successful business in real estate that would not only leave me fulfilled but also allow me the opportunity to help rejuvenate surrounding communities building them up by methods of renovation and redevelopment. I have always been fascinated with real estate but have not always had confidence in my own abilities to execute. Personal growth comes with time and the desire to accomplish what one sets out to do. Deciding to believe in the vision I’ve had since a child has made all the difference. I’m ready.
A little about my background… I was raised by a single mother who also had 3 other children. Although my father is alive he has never been a part of my life. My parents separated when I was an infant. Without even a high school diploma my mother worked very hard in jobs for our survival and still to this day works hard even though she has attained a GED diploma and completed a Registered Nursing graduate program in college. I will retire her. Coming up in our household many times was a struggle, things were rough as resources were scarce. With my father being absent I believe I lacked not only physical resources and support but also the education of life skills a strong father provides to his child. Due to having no positive guidance from a father figure, in my late teen years and early 20’s angry with feelings of abandonment I began getting into trouble being open to influence by men I believed to be strong and in ways supportive despite the reality they happened to be living and acting menacingly. Eventually and thankfully I learned from my mistakes and through it all never gave up believing in myself nor the desire to be a successful entrepreneur.
Today I am thirty years old with a son. We share the same birthday! I believe him being born on the same day of the same month as myself shows we have an unbreakable bond and that I have the chance to experience the father – son relationship that I longed for as a child. With me now being a father, it is important that I set the right example for my family and provide. Success in my business is not only for my desires but it will also give me the ability to leave a legacy and teach my son and others that regardless of how to start out in life you have the power to write your story. The financial stability gained from this business will position me to be a financial blessing to others.
Thus far on my entrepreneurial journey I have invested blood, sweat, tears and capital. I’ve have come a long way but still have a way to go and could use some help.
In order to get the real estate business off the ground I am asking for donations that will be used to assist in covering marketing cost, operations cost, initial asset acquisition cost, as well as additional coaching and mentoring. You can be assured that any financial contributions you are inclined to offer are greatly appreciated and will be used exactly as stated. Thank you for taking to time to acknowledge my request.
