    anyone interested in loaning me $5000, actually $2200 would work since i can get the other $2800. let me know, i need it by next week, and im willing to pay interest. THIS IS NOT A JOKE, DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME!

    come on now, i need more than just my stick roller, which you can see pictures of in the picture forum!

    fine, okay, i'll ease up. I'll take any amount of donation to go towards my "EQUIPMENT FUND". I am a Kentucky Juvenile Worker and a member of the KY ARMY National Guard, and for those of you that dont know, KY state dont pay their workers crap. I know there are some big companies out there that can help a lil guy out, even $1 would be appreciated. Just message me!

    I can afford to loan you 1 US dollar. Of course, I would expect 2 US dollars back. Interest rates sure are rising :hammerhead: Ok, in all seriousness... perhaps you should go to a bank of you're looking to get some money.

    tried it, dont have enuf credit to get it, even with equipment being collatoral, and was going to try sba loan but it wouldnt process in time if i did :(

    My gf's parents are willing to loan it to me, but i dont want to feel like i owe them something, like me and my gf visiting more often or somn...

    What's the rush? I've been saving for a little over a year to start my own LCO and I don't even have any intentions on doing it any time soon. SAVE! SAVE! SAVE! What will you do if you get a loan from your girlfriends parents, only to be out of business and 5k in the hole a year from now? Not a good scenario to be in at ALL.

    Wal-Mart has good old Murray pushers for $99 and since you only have 8 accts and no money, no equipment and bad credit you may have to go the MowJoe route for a while....
