I want to but I can’t afford to ______ (fill in the blank)

How many times have you said this:

I want to but I can’t afford to ______ (fill in the blank)

> Grab a violon and cue the tragedy song!

I’ve said this more times than I can count. In fact, it kind of became a standard phrase in my vocabulary. 

I want to but I can’t afford to :

  • take a trip to India
  • buy a vintage vespa
  • produce short films
  • go to a prestigious school
  • donate money to charity
  • buy a $100 victoria’s secret bra
  • have a monthly yoga membership
  • ….

There’s been a ton of projects that I’ve WANTED to do, or THINGS I wanted to buy but lacked the funds to finance them.

In Canada, as a requirement to graduate from high school we are required to do 40 hours of community service. I did mine with my best friend Katie Cyr at The Good Shepard Centre in Hamilton, Ontario.

It broke my heart to see people living this way. I could hardly look them in the eyes as I served them food. I just wanted to invite them all to live with me!

I knew I had to do something. I knew I had to help. Not out of pity. But because I wanted to make a difference and inspire people.

One of my ultimate goals one day is to open up a Soup Kitchen and provide food for those going through a difficult time. Not as a long term solution that people take advantage of, but as short term comfort to help people in need.

When I created my business, I went through several financial stages: in debt-just getting by-sweet spot-big sales-abundance

So when I set out to write this eBook  101 SECRETS OF UNTAMED ENTREPRENEURS REVEALED , I thought;

How can I give back?

How can I make a difference?

I’m not a millionaire (yet!)

I’m not a 6 figure earner (yet!)

But how can I give back and contribute to society in a small way ?

I searched out a ton of charities until my dear sister Nikki Jumper suggested Canadian charity BECAUSE I AM A GIRL.

The company values were completely aligned with what I am doing!!

That’s why part of my book sales are being directly donated to the program:


Will you help me raise $1000 ?

Grab a copy of my $12 eBook! I am donating part of the sales to this amazing cause that helps young girls blossom into their own girlboss by getting the education they need!
