Family and Friends,
As most of you may know, I have been blessed with the opportunity to continue my parents Janon Bryant and James Jones Jr's legacy in the Cosmetology and Barbering industry by obtaining my Master Cosmetology license and opening my own salon located in Augusta, GA.
In February 2017, I acquired my own commercial location to make my salon "home" and thus the journey began. After being denied more times than I would care to detail of traditional business and personal loans, I decided to bite the bullet and use my personal savings that I accumulated through the last couple of years through working on the salon floor in cosmetology school and cheerleading choreography and judging gigs.
To date I have put roughly 15k of hard earned money into this business venture. I have not borrowed one dime from any banks, finance companies loan sharks/angels or anything of the sort. This entire salon has been funded and renovated by me alone with the help of a couple of good friends here in Augusta. I am now reaching out you, my immediate family and close friends for your help if possible. As I approach the grand opening of the salon I am still in need of monetary support to purchase additional tools and equipment that must be purchased and in operation prior to the salon opening.
After having our fire marshall and state board walkthrough there were several health/safety concerns that were brought to my attention that are required to be addressed to receive my official building permit for the salon to operate. The total cost to resolve all of these building issues is slightly shy of $4000.
I am asking your support in making a donation to help me reach the monetary goal of $3000 to make the appropriate repairs and purchases to bring the facility up to code and compliant with the local and state guidelines so that we may not face possible citations and legal repercussions such as having my salon & business licenses revoked.
Any amount no matter how big or email will help me to obtain this goal, make the required repairs and have the salon fully operational upon the Grand Opening. I thank you for taking the time to view this campaign. Even if your unable to donate your prayers and best wishes are greatly appreciated during this trying time. Thank you for support and if you are local to the Augusta area be sure to follow updates on the salons grand opening so that you may attend this celebration with me and my stylists! -Jarrell B.
