Deployment to several countries including Kuwait, Afghanistan, and Cuba
Let me start out by introducing myself, for the people that don't know who I am, my name is Jeffery Armitage. I'm the owner and creator of the online store called Outdoor Space Store. I'm the oldest of 6 kids from Fairfax County, Virginia raised on section 8 and food stamps. I graduated in 1999 from Lake Braddock High School as a homeless teenager while sleeping under stairs and in playgrounds alone. After graduating, I joined the United States Air Force to get off the street in hopes to never have to live that way again. Stationed in Andrews AFB, for 10 years, I worked hard, won awards, and learned what ever I could about the Air Force. Once the Air Force made organizational changes and I was moved to Alamogordo, New Mexico. The adjustment was very difficult and I found myself feeling as if I wasn't being treated fairly. I tried to find the positive by helping others enjoy their environment. With the cut backs the government made after 15 long years of dedication, I was released from service.
Since my wife was still stationed in NM I was trapped in an area that Wal-mart was my best choice. Unfortunately starting over, making $10.50 a hour at 32 guaranteed weekly hours would not allow me to continue supporting my family. I found a few coaches to assist me in learning how to start a new online business. So here we are!! People have compared this business to Amazon, but this is not true. The dedicated and sole goal of Outdoor Space Store is to help families enjoy their outdoor environment and their community. We have furniture for the yard,patio, and balcony to fit that desire. I was told products wouldn't be available, and now, in a short span of time we have over a thousand and growing. I was told unless I pay thousands to marketers I wouldn't be found. Now we are trying to prove these companies wrong. I refuse to quit, because I understand the need and have the desire to help!
My company will not stop with outdoor furniture. With enough generated revenue, I will contribute some proceeds back into different communities. I did hours of research and found great playgrounds for the children here in Desert Estates and a way to fund the project. Unfortunately, after communicating with the owner, he didn't want the help. However, I will not let his decision deter me. Our first goal is to perform at least one project a year and then work towards one per quarter.
Please help us meet our goal. We are asking you to share our company's website with everyone you know and let us know what we need to do to better suit your needs.
