A very stressful weekend!

January 20th 2019

Hello, This has been one of the worst weekends in recent memory. I barely covered the motel for one more day and some food yesterday, and, before I hit the road today to generate some cash, I need to pay the motel. And get a tank of gas. My car is way overdue for maintenance, so I can’t continue driving all day without getting it serviced. Can you help?

My Daily Struggle!

January 19th 2019

Hello, As I write this, it’s early morning in Arizona. Every single day, I go through the agony of worrying how I’ll put together enough money to pay the motel by the 11 AM deadline. I also owe other bills, but food and shelter come first. In addition to the ride sharing gigs, I’m working with a web developer/marketing partner to boost traffic and income from The Tech Night Owl and The Paracast. The updates have taken far longer than I had hoped, but we’re close to the finish line. As i ...Continue Reading

I'm preparing for another weekend crisis!

January 18th 2019

Hello, I’ve said it before. This day-to-day existence is exhausting. I continue to just meet the 11 AM deadline to pay the motel. I want to leave. But I can’t until I can afford to also cover move-in expenses to a new apartment. As I write this, my accounts are down to zero. In addition to the ride sharing gigs, I’m working with a web developer/marketing partner to boost traffic and income from The Tech Night Owl and The Paracast. But in order to get from here to there, I desperately n ...Continue Reading

Struggling through another cash crisis!

January 16th 2019

Hello, Once again, I’m very short of cash. I used up most of what I made from the Lyft and Uber gigs to cover food and a small bil or two, but I still have to cover the motel at 11 AM Arizona time each day. So PayPal is down to less than $5.00. Are you able to send a donation today to help?

There is no Plan B

You can save my life! Really!

January 10th 2019

Hello, My financial mess continues. I’m trying to put together enough money to cover the motel before 11 AM tomorrow. I’m trying to cover critical bills such as auto insurance, the costly scheduled maintenance for the car, and other needs.

I'm still underwater, but...

January 4th 2019

Hello, It’s a little better today thanks to a small boost in cash flow and some help from my friends. The motel is paid through Saturday.

On the brink of disaster!

January 2nd 2019

Hello, The news isn’t so good. There has been no progress in restoring my cell phone. Rather than suspending it, the contract was canceled by mistake, which means it’ll take longer to reactivate after payment. Without a wireless connection with a large data plan, I’m not able to use Lyft and Uber. I lose an important source of income. As usual the motel has to be paid by 11 AM Arizona time (Mountain) to have a place to stay. Other bills are due, but these are the most important. Ca ...Continue Reading
