THE STORY:

My name is Chris and i have been disabled for almost a decade now. I suffer from bipolar disorder, mood disorders and severe trust issues die to what I've gone through in my life. I don't want to collect any longer but i cannot work for other people. My condition makes it impossible to maintain a job working for someone else. Has always been this way. Never held a job longer than 6 months in my life And im now 34 going on 35. I have 3 children i dont see much one that doesn't even know who i am. Just a check to them. I need this to change. I need to be able to continue to help provide for them and they are only getting more expensive as they get older. I'm great with my hands. Flooring is what i do best and tattooing which i have set aside to get realistic about my life. I need tools. To reinstate my lisence and a van to transport my tools to jobs. Am highly motivated and driven. Just not capable of coming up with the money i need to get started on my own. After child support and medical coverage I've been living off of 596 dollars a month for nearly 10 years now and half the time ive been homeless. I can't live like this anymore. I seriously need to make a drastic change in my life while i still can. I have a hard time asking for help. Don't have anyone i can ask for this kind of help anyhow. So here i am... Begging for an oppertunity to get a business going that i can maintain on my own and do the right thing with my life And for my children. Somebody please help me get my shit together!! I guarantee this will work for me and if you are willing to help me you are also welcome to check up on me later to see how well i am doing. Even willing to repay if necessary. My business plan has me at about 15k. 20k would have me at a bit of a safety net in case i cant find certain things second hand and have to buy something or some things new. Thank you SO MUCH for your consideration!! God Bless!
