This fundraising is all about helping families that was hit hard financially by Covid-19.
An engineer by trade, I have worked over 20 yeas in a few industries, especially the banking industry. I have always supported myself and my family.
Than came the Corona virus and shuffled the cards...my latest work contract at a London bank expired a week before being eligible for furlough. Talk about bad timing!
Having 2 young daughters to support, I was in a bind, BUT I have always been able to carry my own weight, and never asked for any favors. That's not going to change!
So I'm NOT going to ask you to help support my family. Instead, I'd like to ask your help in starting an online business that will support my family AND other families.
"Give a man a fish and you will feed him for the day. Give him a rod and you will feed him for a lifetime".
So I'm asking for a rod, not a fish :-)
The online business I'm going to start will be based around selling products online, using platforms like eBay and Amazon.
It's a proven model, which I have previous experience in, and as I need a maximum success chances, I will go with this model.
The funding raised will be used to buy stocks of in-demand products to ship to clients after they purchase.
AND, I am going to document my journey online, to guide, inspire, and motivate others to create an online business for themselves, or pivot an existing business.
We live in a changing world, and many of us need new skills.
Documenting my business set up, step by step, and sharing it with everyone, is my way of giving back to the world...helping and inspiring others to take charge of their own destiny!
Trusting the government to help you will not go very far. We need to take matters into our own hands. This project will not only help my family, it will help many, many others!
Who knows, we might even save lives.
Yes, I know there are projects out there that are more exciting and sexy. I'm not looking for that. I'm looking for a relatively safe way to provide for my children, in an un-safe, crazy, rapidly changing world. Many other will benefit, as well.
Is that a cause worth perusing ? I think so, and your support will go a long way in making this happen!
