So for years I have worked for other people, and for years I have wished I didn’t have to. Unfortunately, working for other people has left me living from paycheck to paycheck for my entire adult life. I really shouldn’t complain as it hasn’t always been a bad deal. Well I guess I could complain but it wouldn’t do anyone much good at all.
A little background for everyone:
I have had a job in some form since I was ten years old. I became an adult. I became a mother at times working two or three jobs at a time to support myself and my child. I got married to the person who I thought was my forever person. In recent years, I’ve had a string of bad luck. 2016 my brother in law passed away. 2018 I was attacked by a dog (it belonged to my mother in law and was actually after a cat, I got in the way), my step mother passed away, and my place of employment caught on fire. 2019 seemed to start out well enough but then I was diagnosed with cancer in May and was off of work (still paid) until the end of October. 2020 the pandemic hit and my mother passed away. 2021 showed up and nothing went wrong, until it did. My forever person decided he didn’t want to be my forever person, my daughter had a bunch of seizures, I moved into an apartment and allowed my daughter to move in with me. 2022 I’ve been barely making ends meet and I just know there has to be something better out there for me.
I’ve had a dream of having a bakery since I was really young and have sold baked goods to people I work with multiple times. The outside of the bakery would hopefully, eventually look like a gingerbread house. The inside would serve cookies, cupcakes, ice cream, and seasonal pies and breads. Everything would be made on site by me. It would be open from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
I have checked out locations and pricing for everything. Since it will be a bakery that is not established yet and has no location that has baking equipment start up costs will be $250,000 plus a building and city/county/state permits $250,000 for a total of $500,000.
I don’t know how to ask for help or money. I Never have been very good at that but I am going to attempt it now.
I am asking for your help to make my lifelong dream come true in the amount of $500,000. Please, if you can, any amount will be appreciated and will push me closer to my goal.
