Bipolar Disorder Disabled Father Seeks Grant To Make Uplifting Local Music

by Richard Warner
(Montpelier, Ohio, USA)

My name is Richard Warner and I am interested in starting my own business with a government grant.

I am a proud father of 3 beautiful children. My life was not the greatest. I was abused, molested and kidnapped while young.

I have been labeled as bipolar.

I receive SSI and SSA.

I have back problems, which cause me to stay at home with my children.

I never thought any dreams of mine were able to come true, but they had.

My past concerned getting into trouble with drugs, and not living life to the fullest.

I am happily married to my wife and have been together for eight years. I remember sitting down one day expressing what I have accomplished and what I want the future to entail.

I had found my answer... to start a business.

Here in my small town we don't have very much in the way of hangouts, music stores or a place where people can come in and chat.

There are bars, a Walmart, and such but not what I am looking for.

I figured out I wanted to open a music store, not your usual plain one, but a super music store with every music artist you can think of.

It would have any music you're looking for, as well as shirts, posters, merchandise and places to sit.

It would be a place where I can have plans of having weekend bands coming in from wherever and playing.

I want to start a business that generates enough income that I know can take care of my family.

I realize that there are no longer that many jobs available, especially the ones that can give you the security you need to be able to take care of your family.

I understand people all the time put their applications here, and usually are always the same.

But I know if I receive money to start my dream, it will really work.

I will start a radio station if necessary, to help promote local bands, and at the same time generate income for me to support my family.

I plan on opening this business so I won't have to be on SSI anymore and can receive my own money.

Please know this isn't a waste and I am serious about every word.

I want to thank you for taking time out of your day to read my letter.
