Hello to all that are reading. I’ve for the first time since my first job in 2005, have been fired from a job 3/7/19. I’ve always worked and been reliable, low maintenance and just function off of the necessities in life. I was unhappy at my previous jobs (1 I stayed with for 7 yrs, lack of appreciation, I trained the management, only missed work when I or my children were sick but they didn’t want to pay me over $15/hr…after almost 7 yrs.) nonetheless I gave the job my absolute all. I left there and started a new job that hired 300+ people and after 8 months laid off approximately 100-150, me being one.
I’ve always known how to do hair (learned from my mother) and in 2017 while pregnant with my youngest I went to school for natural hair. I have my license and have began working on building my clientele in a salon as of 3/27/19 but it’s not enough to pay any bills at home. I’ve had to even take my baby to the salon with me on the few occasions as I’m not allowed to take him back to daycare until I’ve caught the payment up and able to maintain it. It gets quite depressing thinking about the bills piling up (daycare, rent, electric, water, car payment) everything, absolutely everything is behind and I’ve not had luck finding a job as of yet but certainly looking. I’m the go getter type worked two jobs at a time while taking care of a newborn, school and work while pregnant twice…my pride makes me this way, I do everything I can to provide for my family…but I’m sinking horribly, depression is still lingering though I’m fighting it and as hard as it is I’ve had to check my pride and ask for help. I want to be an entrepreneur and work on opening my own salon spa in the future but I have to get my home life in order first. Please help!
Thank you for taking the time out to read my story. Anything that you can give I and my babies greatly appreciate.
