I'm not sure what kind of energy I'm in need of to be honest. I discovered this forum about two months ago, and its helped me in so many ways. I'm hoping that by posting this here ... maybe you all can do something together that I/we haven't been able to as of yet ...

Maybe a bit of background?

My co-worker and I have decided to become buisness partners of a sort. She owns three horses of her own, and needed to find a larger place, with more than three stalls that she has now. She approached me, knowing my own need for a place to live, as I'm sleeping on an air mattress on my grandmothers living room floor right now. This was about a month and a half ago. We started looking at places to rent, horse properties with enough stalls to make a decent board income off of. We found a place, with a beautiful four bedroom house on it, 11 stalls, and a bunch of other stuff. So, we skirt around a few issues with the management company (*they wanted me at first to go through a credit check, which I would never pass due to some past crap that happened this year ...the reason why I am currently sleeping on my grandmas floor...) We got around that, and are set to move in Aug 1st with two other women that we signed on as roommates.

We want to specialise in Kids ... bringing in families with horses to board, or kids that wanna show at the local levels, but the parents don't know enough or can't afford the 'pro trainers' to help their kids. Riding lessons, Kids Camps, Training, and a whole bunch of other stuff.

We put flyers up at the local tack stores, grocery stores, we even spent 3 hours last friday night walking around bookstore parking lots putting small flyers ~over 800 total~ on cars that had been driven to Harry Potter Book Release Parties. We were advertising for a Kids Camp that is scheduled for the first week in August, a camp that would have netted well over $3000 for us our first week in business.

I guess I shouldn't be suprised to see that it didn't all just ... fill up like we imagined it would ... getting flooded with calls for boarding when theres FIVE major Boarding places that are all closing in the area before the end of October ... No kids signed up for our Camp ... nothing. We have been advertising for a month straight, and usually in this city's horse industry its a pretty guarenteed thing ... you provide a decent place to Board, you get boarders.

I dunno whats going on ... nor am I sure exactly what Kind of energy I'm asking for ... What I'd love to see is our Camp filled, and a few good Boarded Horses in the back yard. I know its still early ...we're not even in the house at all yet, but I know asking for some thoughts for ... Prosperity ... thats what I'm asking for I guess ... A Prosperous start to the month and the buisness.

As a side note .... this is why I've not logged in to the board in ... I have no idea how many weeks lol. I have a bit of catching up to do.

Anyways ... I know you all have done amazing things before ... A small part of that would be very appriciated.

Hear me
And if close my mind in fear
Please pry it open
See me
And if my face becomes sincere
Beware
Hold me
And when I start to come undone
Stitch me together
Save me
And when you see me strut
remind me of what left this outlaw torn
~The Outlaw Torn, Metallica~
