You see, I'm facing a crisis right now and time is slipping away from me. I can see my way out of it, but that's about it. I'm trying to make my way out of it, and yet, nothing is happening for me.
Here's the situation.
I'm currently in default for unpaid rent for the month of March, and facing eviction because of it. If I don't come up with the rest of the money that I owe by Friday, me and my family will be out on the street. I don't want to go through the whole story of what happened that brought me to this point, and I'm sure that most of you wouldn't care to hear it anyway.
I'm not looking for some money to just land in my lap, but I am seeking help. And yes, I know that there is a thread titled "What to do if you're desperate," but that does me no good at the moment. I've tried getting help from social service agencies, but they don't have any available funding, and I don't have any family that I could get a loan from either. So, I've got to do this myself.
Now, I'm focused, and I've got a plan. I'm offering to write content for whoever may need it, but finding people to take me up on my offer isn't easy. And, sure, there's a section for people to post job offers; but I'm willing to be that 95% of people who need to hire someone don't post anything. Maybe they don't have the time or just don't want to deal with the hassle of trying to find a decent writer. Whatever the case, I want to know how I can find these people if they aren't actively looking to hire.
You might be laughing at me, but I don't care. I'm really trying to figure this thing out. And for those who care to give their advice, I truly appreciate you for doing so. I know that there's a lot of opportunity within this forum, and some people make five and six figures a month off of business retained here alone. I'm not looking for that...I'm just looking to get back on my feet. Once I have some security again, even if only temporary, I will start to focus on building up my business for the long term.
