I got laid off a couple of months ago. At the time, I absolutely hated the work and wanted to do something else. I was already running a side business at the time that I was laid off, but it wasn’t generating any cash flow, in fact, it was just a money sink, constantly draining our funds month after month. So, when I got laid off, we took that as a blessing in disguise and decided to shut down that side business and for me to open another one in a different field. Unfortunately, the new business isn’t growing at the rate we had desired…
Currently, I work a part time job (US Army Reserves) that I had prior to being laid off (yes, at the time, I was working full time, part time, and running a side business), as well as work full time trying to get this new business off the ground and running smoothly. Unfortunately, I injured my knee training for a Physical Fitness Test and, as a result, my part time Reserve duty has been cut to extremely part time Reserve duty as well as not being able to get around to see clients, my new business has stalled and is not running smoothly. We are barely keeping our heads above water at this point.
We have already taken a loan from a friend as well as attempted to talk with the bank and landlord about a delay in payment this month. The bank was kind enough to waive last month’s car payment, however, the landlord has told us that, since they have granted us an extension on our rent in the past 12 months, they will not grant us another one. Our City Ordinances have recently been changed so that if rent is not paid by the due date without a granted extension, they are required to being eviction procedures the day after.
We have already lived in both of our parent’s basements in the past, I really don’t want us to have to move back in with 2 kids…
This is our last resort… We are not asking for much, just enough to stay afloat while I get this knee situation settled. Any and all donations will be greatly appreciated! Thank you to all that help!
PS: the paypal.me link below is from the business that I closed this year, I cannot figure out how to change it, however, it is linked to my personal account. Again, thank you in advance!
