In 39 days my family might be homeless in Chattanooga TN.
For the whole story you can start the series HERE.
Since the first e-mail yesterday, I’ve been getting some questions. I’ll answer them here, because I’m sure many of you are wondering the same things.
“What about your business?”
It’s a fair question. It’s a polite way of asking if I’ve just been sitting on my ass all day or if I should try a different job. But that’s okay. I don’t mind telling you what’s going on.
Business is going well. I’m actually leaving tomorrow for an assignment out of town that’s one of my highest paying yet. Successes like that give me hope. I need it, because I’m almost out.
It’s the mountain of debt and other circumstances that are killing us.
- I lost a $35K a year client, and I’m still feeling that impact. That forced us to put almost 2 years of apartment rent on credit cards.
- My 2mo baby has kidney problems, specifically hydronephritis.
- I just got two letters from different agencies telling me that property taxes were screwed up in 2015 and 2016. Together those two letters are asking for over $10K, payable within 30 days.
Then there’s still the whole getting kicked out of our apartment because I have too many kids thing.
There’s a lot of other stuff going on too. I’ll elaborate more as this series goes on.
Here’s one way you can help. Support me with your shopping! Here’s a link to resources where most of my business is conducted.
One of my income sources I want to tell you about is a horror book written by my mom and published through Amazon. You can find it right HERE. Buy a copy. Buy a thousand. It’d make me and my mom really happy.
I’ll be sending out quite a few e-mails in the coming days that will give more info and show different ways you can help. I’m going to be hustling like I’ve never hustled before.
The best way you can help me is by spreading the word. Please forward this e-mail on to everyone you know. I need as many people as possible to know about this in case they can help us or know someone else who can.
Thank you in advance for your help!
Please connect with me if you have any questions.
A GoFundMe page has been set up HERE.
