Want to hear something pretty cool? When I was in my late 20’s, I was living in the SF bay area, making $2K/month as a financial advisor. I was embarrassed and felt like a fraud because I wasn’t making enough money to pay the bills and I felt humiliated that I was going deeper in debt.
I was also miserable because despite all that, I knew that I was more fortunate than 99% of the world. I wanted to give back to the community and others in need, but just couldn’t swing it financially.
Throughout the years, I began making more money. And the more money I made, the more money I could give.
Just last month, I was given a fantastic opportunity to meet with Paula Lawrence from Dress for Success in Southern Nevada, while filming a segment for ABC News in Las Vegas.

For those of you that may not know, Dress for Success is an international non-profit that empowers women in need by providing them professional attire, a network of support, and career development tools to help them thrive in work and life.
Paula and I both work towards helping women reach their financial goals, and so it was quite motivating to interact with someone who also values both personal and professional development as well as giving back to the community.
After the segment, my friends and I went back to Paula’s warehouse where she passionately told us everything she and the organization were doing to help women get back into the workforce.
It was incredible!
I was so impressed with this woman and the tremendous impact she is making.
Paula showed me and my friends a room that she wanted to turn into a learning center. She was so excited and couldn’t wait to get the funding to make her visions come true.
Her excitement was contagious and I couldn’t help but want to contribute to her dream.
I turned to her and said something like, “How about I help you get started on that?” and I proudly wrote her a big fat check.
It was so cool!
She was incredibly grateful and so was I. Because it’s so awesome to be in a position where I can—just like that—give back and help others.
So let me ask you this:
1. Are you making the money that you really want to make?
2. Are you helping all of those who you want to help?
If you answered “no” to one or both of these questions and are motivated to change that, then start now!
The best way to make more so you can give more, would be to join a group of like-minded women for 2 full days at my exclusive Positioning Yourself for Profits (PYFP) event.
Check it out.
Make it happen, so you can make more money and help more people.
