Monthly Archives: October 2013


Looking back over the last few months; not sure if life was testing my passions or patience, but I managed to tough it out, didn’t give up, and now feel that I have overcome some pretty massive obstacles that were standing in my way, and things have been going very well ever since.

No…..I don’t have a physical store, and no, I don’t have my own swanky mega-site (yet), but that’s not stopping me from doing the work that I love to do NOW!

To me, there’s no better feeling. I’m doing exactly what I set out to do:

• Working in fashion ✔️
• Building an eco-friendly and socially responsible company ✔️
• Helping people ✔️

So like a baby bird learning to fly, I’m spreading my wings and selling various pieces of my collections via eBay. Is it my ideal path? No, but I figured, I have a $578 start-up goal, and I need to get cracking!

Lastly, I’m happy to report that I am nearly at the half way mark of that $578 goal, and it hasn’t even been 2 weeks.

Just imagine where I’ll be in the next 2 years.

MORAL: Do what you love, with what you have.


500 Steps Left.

Dear CTA Family,

I am reaching out to all of you for the first time ever in asking you to assist me in the launch of the Cargo Train Apparel online resale store. The goal is to go live on January 1, 2014, but It will only be possible if I can reach my startup goal of $500. I am hoping that my pre-launch sales via eBay will account for the majority of the launch costs needed, but not all of it, and due to the government shutdown, they are not issuing any small business loans at this time.

This is why I am coming to you. Your assistance will secure the necessary funds to take care of basic legalities (federal and state licensing and registration fees), office supplies, and the initial inventory for the launch.

I have been fortunate enough to have CPA and attorney services available to me at no charge, but that is only half the battle. There are still a few more hurdles to overcome.

This company is nearly 2 years in the making, and it’s never been so close to becoming a reality.

With that said, If you feel that you are in a position to lend your assistance, please do so via Paypal; using either my phone number or email address.

REMEMBER: even a little can go a very long way in this industry, and each dollar is another step closer to going live.

Lastly, As I sit here and write this, I’m overwhelmed with an immense feeling of gratitude to each and everyone of you. I honestly can’t begin to thank ALL of you that have kept my ambitions strong over the past couple of years, which has in return, kept me fighting for my dreams. Without you, none of this would be possible!

Feel free to contact me with any questions and/or suggestions.
