Dear Bethenny,

My name is Melissa Downey I live in Mansfield Texas and am originally from New Orleans Louisiana. I am trying to start a non-profit organization called "HELP ME HELP YOU HELP OTHERS". I am having a really hard time getting it started but I know it is something everyone needs.My goal is to open a home/program that will help people who have been raped or abused. I was a victim of sexual violence and a victim or attempted murder. I have been raped, beaten, abused,incarcerated,and on drugs. I have been down and picked myself up. I know that I have gone through these things so that I could help others and now I need your help letting others know we are here and help in the process of getting things up and running. I REALLY NEED YOUR HELP BETHENNY PLEASE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I just watched your video about the follow-up of three businesses you helped, the baker, jewelry maker, and furniture maker, and was so inspired to make a comment. It is not the easiest thing to be a business owner, but it is so rewarding watching your dream materialize. I am 61 yrs young and have decided to follow my dream of owning a baking business. I have been baking as long as I can remember,starting out with a baking set I received when I was about 9yrs old. I live in the Atlanta area and I have a great customer base, cooking out of my home, but I know I need to expand and get more space. the name of my company is Sweet Love cakes and I do have a facebook fan page. This is my passion and I would appreciate any ideas on how I can expand and take my business to another level.

Hi Bethenny I liked your show on helping the three woman get there business started. It made me happy to see people like you give back to those trying to succeed in these hard times. I wanted to ask you if you have any charty left over for a small independant business trying to get started I DON'T want cash just that we were blessed with a small store front after having shared a business with an associate that was stealing our merchandise and selling it on ebay. SO we moved into this new store front that needs some tlc. T-tiles L-lights C-ceiling and floor boards And a toilet and sink and paint. God all ready blessed u with 60 rolls of wall paper that a hardware store through away. So if anyone you know has stuff there throwing away from construction work We can sure use it.
my number is 267-298-6355. Were really trying to do the right thing and get our bills paid off and nothing is going right and shutoff notices on everything. But if we can get the store done we can sell our items and get our bill payed on time and not have to lose everything. I hope you real read this and that It does not get tossed in with your junk mail because I we are not junk were real people trying to make a differences.Thank you

Hi Bethenny,

I am in between background is selling radio and TV advertising and I have been watching your show and am impressed with the show and look forward to seeing you everyday when I can. You are a very down-to-earth woman which most women relate to.

The reason I am reaching out to you is that I want to start a business designing visors for women. I have made approximately 12 last year. I purchased the plain "large" visors and everyone is decorated differently. I started this last spring/summer after I had a major injury to my eye which I now only have to have a plastic surgeon lift the eye. Women are very much concerned about protecting their face from the sun which is why I came up with the idea.

I see that you are reaching out to college students for their new designs. Are you going to open up this segment of your show to other women that want to start a business?

Many thanks,
