About my business:
I have a degree in early childhood education, and for the past eight years have "worked" as a stay-at-home mother of three. I now have an itch to build a career for myself and am committed to the entrepreneurial path. I have always believed in the methodology of the Sleep Sense program, and it has resulted in three children that have always been amazing sleepers. Throughout the years I have had several people ask me for tips to help their children sleep better at night, and I discovered a true passion for helping others. Combining that with my understanding of the Sleep Sense method sparked an interest to seek further accreditation through that specific program, and build a career around that interest. I have since undergone the Sleep Sense Certification training program and have recently been hired by a few local friends to help them correct their children's poor sleep habits. I am now looking to launch my new business online but am struggling to fund the marketing side to further establish the necessary awareness, and thus was made aware of YouHelp fundraising campaign.
What I plan to do with the money:
If awarded this funding opportunity I would apply the entirety of the funds toward advertising and creating awareness for my new business. My Sleep-Sense mentors have stated that creating sufficient awareness through social media and google advertising is essential in the early stages of a sleep consulting business to create an initial base of clientele. I do not have access to other financial resources so this grant would be a tremendous asset. I would be forever grateful to even be considered for this opportunity, and will anxiously await your decision. If another applicant is chosen over me I would obviously understand, and am happy to contribute the $15 fee knowing that it is helping fund another struggling woman trying to get her business off the ground. Thank you!
