I have always wanted to own my own business, but I never had the means to do so. I borrowed money from family members, friends, and I even talked to strangers, in order to get some funding. No matter what I did, I never had enough money to start the businesses that I really wanted to try. I was told that I should do some searching online, so I jumped online, in order to find a place that might loan me some money. I have no credit history, I’m a young lady, but I’m very ambitious.
After searching for hours, I got tired, and I decided I just wanted to have some fun online. I came across the social media network Skout, and after reading about it, I decided that I would join. People on Twitter have been talking about it for years. I put up a picture of myself on my profile, and I also listed many of my hobbies. One of the biggest things that I emphasized on my profile, was that I was an entrepreneur, and I really wanted to start a business. Someone read my profile, and I was sent a message, so I answered.
I assumed that the guy was trying to flirt with me, but he kept asking me about my business ventures. After a while, I became a bit skeptical, and I even thought that he might be trying to steal my ideas. I was shocked to find that the person was completely genuine, and he said he was looking for a business to fund, not one to steal. It turns out the guy that I was talking to, was a millionaire, and he was always looking for new business ventures.
I asked him what he was doing on Skout, and he claimed he was looking for a girlfriend. Although he came onto Skout looking for a companion, he accidentally ended up finding an entrepreneur, such as his self, and we hit it off. We began talking on the phone, and after giving him my business ideas, he decided he would take a chance on me. He allowed me to sign a reasonable contract, and after one year of working with him, I am completely independent, and I work for myself.
