So, 2017 hasn't started so well. After a couple very successful years at The Hobbit, Jeff was let go. This was shortly after Christmas and very unexpected. It has come as quite a shock to us both emotionally and financially.
As many of you know Jeff applied for his real estate license back in October and has a position waiting at Tarbell as soon as the state completes his application process and awards him an exam date. Unfortunately the money we had set aside for his training, association fees, and office start up costs must now be used to keep us afloat.
We've spent several angst ridden evenings budgeting, cutting discretionary spending, and arranging for me to take on more client hours. We are still awaiting his unemployment award, but as forecasted it will not be enough to bridge the gap and keep us in our home let alone launch him into his new career.
This brings us to this campaign and humbly to each of you. I firmly believe if we can pull through the next 3-4 months we will be able to change our stars in 2017 and be successful. To everyone reading this, thank you.
