Hi there I’m the wife of an awesome husband with 2 toddlers, our deaf mum who we care for, a great guard dog with his two cat buddies. We live on one income here in New Zealand and the reason being is my husband really wants to me to stay home and full time care for our little ones till they start school as oppose to just sticking them into child care. Those years you can’t ever get back and we’ve made a huge sacrifice to do it. What i really want is to be able to retire my husband early so that we can get what we can’t back later in life and that’s time. In my family it’s being a cycle of poverty for years. Breaking the chains of old habits that have been passed down through generations has been hard but I think we’ve done really well considering. We are debt free, live by the cash only rule, have no credit cards or loans and have taught ourselves how to be financial responsible. With that I’ve tryed for ages to be entrepreneur from home. I’ve attempted doing Banoffee Desserts from home but after doing them for a while realised I needed more fridge space to hold orders then food safety certificates etc, our council don’t make it easy to sell food from home, I then tryed direct marketing from home on the internet and little bits come in but unless your completely consumed with people in hours and hours of time you never really get far, i then attempted Let it Shine lawn mowing and domestic cleaning from home where our services where offered and you gift what you can to pay for the job. Well lawn mower was consistantly breaking down, and people weren’t always paying and profit was going on servicing and petrol to jobs so that stopped. Then i tryed doing “The Poop Fairies” they poop we scoop. Basically low investment for tools and just going around home and cleaning dog poop regularly. Building up a clientelle has been long and arduous and getting to places has been a mission. So in short I’ve, we’ve been trying. I came across this site and thought what the heck I may as well try. We’re a really good family, are financially responsible but just really want a break and if someone on here sees this and feels like they connect with us we would be absolutely thankful and blessed. The main thing for us is having our own mortgage free home that way my husband would be able to reduce hours and be more involved with our children. Time I believe is one of the most undervalued things we consider, but once it’s gone, it’s gone.
We’d really love to hear from anyone that would like to help us pay off the remainder of our current mortgage which is an estimated $280,000. This would make a world of difference for us and our family the generations after and would allow us the freedom to break the cycle that’s been passed down for years through our family and help us create a more positive future for our children and theirs after.
I also have a website I created and no money would need to be passed through to us if you were not comfortable. It could be passed on straight to our bank that way everything is completely transparent.
Thank you so much for reading this and I know some may not see it as needy as others requests on here but in the bigger picture it will be helping to accomplish so much for going forward in the years to come.
