So I'm not going to lie. I don't think we are going to make it. April has for the last 2 years been worried that we have been circling the drain but I've tried to remain optimistic and have not been willing to succumb to making that claim that we are on the way out, but for the first time in the nearly 5 years we have been doing this, I'm about at the point where I'm willing to concede to that notion.
We simply are not getting enough return business right now and our overhead for the cost of doing business is not being offset enough by our sales. We are still paying on a sizeable loan, scraping dollars together to pay for medium sized customer lots, rarely have enough funds to buy Japan lots, can barely pay ourselves minimum wage, have no hope whatsoever of generating enough funds to buy the final upcoming orders from our distributor and the business is being supplemented by the money I earn doing my Skyrim Modding projects, which is really not fair honestly. We get little to no interest with all the effort put into our YouTube channel and cannot seem to find a way to capitalize on growing a community and it all seems an exhausting waste of time.
I am now looking for alternate part time work and will continue to try and operate the chop shop as long as possible, but at this point, our personal finances are at risk of being dragged down so I'm not sure in all honestly how much longer I can deal with this. It's a grave disappointment. I'm going to press onward and continue to struggle through with CCS until the loan is paid off in the coming months and hope that once it is, things will rebound, but honestly I am not holding out a lot of hope at this point.
