“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of GOD. Your playing small does not serve the world….” ~ Marianne Williamson
Ever felt like you could do so much more? Be so much more?
Ever had this nagging feeling in your spirit that you were meant to do great things with your life? That you have what you need to bring a positive change to everyone you encounter but life just seems to get in the way every time you try to let out that better version of you. Your best version. It would almost appear as if the unseen is fighting hard against your dreams because they see the potential it could bring?
Yes? Guess it’s safe to say we are family by heart and mind and maybe even spirit. You, me and my husband.
Where are my manners?
Hello there beautiful people! I do hope this message finds you in high spirits and great health!
Let me introduce myself. The name is Shaneil and I write this for my husband and I. We just made it one year in marriage this April and we are a young passionate couple (ages 22 and 25), bursting with entrepreneurial spirit, who is dreaming of building our own business and creating opportunities for not only ourselves but for those around us and our future family.
With our personalities and the countless feedbacks we have gotten from family, friends and even strangers, we know that we can be powerful influencers and achieve our dream of positively changing lives for the better especially for those who are constantly being laughed at and taken for granted because of their big dreams. Especially for those who had no support in regards to their dreams and in addition, had a house but never really had a ‘home.’ Emotional abuse is just as real as physical abuse and we know how that feels and would not wish it on anyone.
There are many times when our family and friends would confide in us and we feel so useless that we are not able to help. It often leave us drowning in sadness because we have a heart of community and unity.
When we go on the streets and see young kids begging for people to buy chocolate, our hearts cries out in agony and we keep seeing the day when we can buy all their boxes plus give them a warm meal plus comfortable clothing just to let them know that they are valuable. They matter and family isn’t only blood.
But I am getting ahead of myself here. Let me get a bit more vulnerable with our backstory as to why we need your help in securing a stable home so that we can build our business.
We had to resign from our jobs due to the severely negative impacts it was having on our health. Severe migraines, poor eyesight, back pains, the feeling of wasting time, being uninspired and working against our values due to the guidelines our jobs had in place was beginning to take a toll on us. It really was not easy.
The more we worked, the more we felt like somebody other than ourselves and not in a very good way, and the more our pockets drained and it was the same for our marriage. We had to put priorities in check and took a risk to open a business after evaluating our strengths to see how we can use our gifts to help others. We like the feeling of making a difference. The feeling of being of help. So we prayed, encouraged each other and made the bold step knowing full well that we have to take control of our lives. We only have one.
We have to do it for our friends who are unmotivated. We have to do it for our brothers to spark that fire of faith and greatness so that they can see that anything is possible. That they can do it too despite the many odds that will come their way. Despite the odds already in their way and despite the odds we faced and is still facing.
Odds like being scammed of most of our savings so our dream to relocate and invest in our business is on a pause however we do try our best to still do what we can to pay the bills and have food to eat.
Odds like where we currently live. We live in family yard, where we are constantly bombarded by my husband’s relatives who loves to show up unannounced with no respect to privacy so we find it rather challenging to grow together as we should being that we are a couple that believes strongly in personal development. And if that wasn’t enough, the house is a great feast for termites, it is constantly invaded by large rats, roaches, spiders and lizards and when we walk in the room, the ground keeps sinking more and more so we had to stop exercising together indoors and also considering putting our youtube channel on a pause.
Did I mention that there is also a bar in the yard and that we share a patio with an aunt who is always drunk and who took a few rum bottles one night and threw it our kitchen window creating a huge crack and growing fear in my heart? Yep. Not a healthy environment at all.
Regrettably, our current living conditions are far from ideal. It’s like a barrier to our success and happiness as it often leaves me in a state of depression I keep fighting to get out of.
It is INCREDIBLY DIFFICULT to focus on growth strategies and investment opportunities with the lack of secure and conducive space hampering our progress, making it arduous to establish the business we envision.
Thankfully, we have been blessed with the opportunity to secure a stable home in a peaceful environment by the end of the month. At first, it felt like we got so little time but we believe that WITH GOD ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE.
We would need atleast $5000 to secure this home and living expenses along with the little that the business is making due to it just starting and the lack of support from family, who I can understand is working on their own life and we have to respect that.
This, my beautiful people, is where your crucial support comes in.
With your help, my husband and I can secure a stable home that serves as a foundation for our dreams to take flight. A safe and nurturing environment will not only provide us with peace of mind but also grant us the space and peace required to grow our business efficiently and effectively.
We realize that no man is an island and no man stands alone so we take this brave step to humbly plead for assistance in overcoming our current challenges and fuel our entrepreneurial spirit.
Your generosity will assuredly create a ripple effect, transforming our lives in unimaginable ways.
By enabling our success, you will not only be investing in our dreams and future but also contributing to the growth and vitality of the lives we encounter as we strive to create opportunities for others.
Every dollar counts, and your support, no matter the amount, will make a tremendous impact.
Consider the profound difference you can make in the lives of a positively loving, inspiring and aspiring couple, ready and open to contribute meaningfully to society.
Thank you so much for considering this appeal and for your continued support in making a positive difference in the lives of those who need it most.
With your help, we can get the stability we deserve and thrive as young entrepreneurs.
