Hello, my name is Jared and I am a recovering alcoholic from York, I am 15 months sober and they have been the best months I have had in a long time! I have an amazing and supportive fiancé and a 2 year old son who I adore.
At the end of last year after I became sober I decided that I wanted to take the plunge and start my own business so I could work for myself and do something I love. So I started T.E.L Concierge, a personal concierge company based in York. I work for individual clients and save them time and money by doing the things they don’t have time to do or want to do. I also work with tourists in the city and help make their stays more memorable, and with holiday let owners and save them time by looking after their guests for them. I also launched a discount card in York for my clients but is available for anyone to purchase. I have got to a point in my business where I need money to try to grow it, as I started the business with no capital I didn’t achieve what I wanted to in the first year and after a lot of hard work I am ready to achieve more which is why I’m trying to raise money. I plan to use the money on marketing and design so I can get my name out their and build brand recognition, money would also go on better equipment for me to work on and enable me to be more productive, saving myself time to spend with my family. Once my business starts to grow I will be looking to employ people with similar backgrounds to myself, people who have had issues with substance abuse and are looking for work. I would also love to donate a percentage of my profits to the charity that helped me get sober. I would be very grateful for any support offered. Thank you.
