Hi. My name is Jessie. I am a single mom to three amazing children, a great dog, two joyful parakeets, and a friendly rat. I am temporarily broke, and could use a hand to get across the gap to being ok.
I recently left an emotionally abusive relationship. He removed my access to our money. To get half of his bonus, so I could move out, he coerced me into signing an agreement that I would not ask for maintenance. I won’t receive child support from him as the children are not his. I can’t afford to fight this. That is not what I am asking for money for though.
I honestly have no doubts that I am capable of taking care of myself, and my children, on my own. I officiate weddings for a living. My company has doubled every year. I am cofounder of, and co pastor an interfaith church. I am also opening a yoga studio.
I work very hard. Most of these things I have been building over the past three years. I was building them at a slower pace, though, as I had the financial backing of my husbands income to enable me to do so. Having a physical space for these endeavors comes with a good amount of overhead that he was helping offset as well. Now things have to be accelerated, and produce much more. I think that it is possible. In fact, In a few months I hope to be one of the people giving money on here.
My immediate challenge is that none of these things will really start bringing in money until the end of June. The wedding in particular pay well, but only for a few months out of the year. I really just need a little help catching up on April and May. I also would like to be able to pay off some credit cards that I had to stop paying on after losing access to household funds. My credit has gotten pretty messed up and I would like to get the process started to fix it.
My monthly bills total around $3000
My guaranteed income is $750
I know I can start making the $2250 I need to break even if given a little time, and if I can manage to not get too far behind.
Asking for help is really scary, but we all have moments in our lives where it is needed. This is my moment.If you could contribute anything at all it would be so appreciated. I promise to pay it forward through helping others.
