COVID UNEMPLOYED, DROVE WOMAN TO SELF EMPLOY

My new small business REED ADMINISTRATIVE SERVICES, LLC needs your help!!!!! My name is Shannon Reed, I live in Folkston, GA and are recently unemployed from my job in Jacksonville FL, due to the stay at home order. I'm a hard working, VERY DRIVEN Professional Business Woman who has worked my whole life starting at the age of 16. Throughout my career I always maintained employment, never had a gap.  But on April 3, 2020, the COVID-19 Pandemic changed all that for me. The stay at home order was put into affect which left my employer panicked over the unforeseen economical future and resulted in me losing my job instantaneously!!! I was one of the THOUSANDS of Floridian employees that found ourselves at mercy of the unprepared and chaotic Florida Unemployment system  But that wasn't going to let me down, so I made a vow to myself to NEVER put my FINANCIAL STABILITY in the hands of another. So I took advantage of the down time and started putting together my business plan and decided to turn this misfortune into my own SELF MADE FORTUNE!!!!!! Over the coarse of 2 months living on my new fixed income, I budgeted my money and made sacrifices and funded my start up fees one by one while paying my living expenses on unemployment.  So far I have accomplished the basics, Incorporating my LLC with the state of Georgia, established a EIN & PTIN with the IRS, opened a business bank account, purchased my own domain www.reedadminservices.com, created my FB Business Page www.facebook.com/virtualreedadmin, LinkedIn www.linkedin.com/in/virtualreedadmin  and invested in software & equipment I needed to have the basics. Even teaching myself  SEO practices which I am proud to say has paid off attracting over 800 people to my sites.  But no calls are coming and its been a challenge building a client base. Additionally, I've applied for some small business grants but haven't obtained one yet, and do not want get in debt before my business starts creating income.  I come to you today asking for your financial help to upgrade my free website for a professional one which will entice web traffic to engage me. Purchase my tax software , secure a year subscription for Accounting software and invest in marketing campaigns so all my efforts will pay off to ensure the survival of my business. Also to help with basic living expenses until the business grows. I've worked too hard and gone to far to turn back and just need someone to notice all my efforts give me the gift of the financial support I need to keep this WOMAN OWNED AND OPERATED BUSINESS GOING!!
