Jane's Story

April 24, 2018

Let me share a story about Jane (not her real name).


Jane is a single mom, has a secure full-time job and works for about $70,000 annually. Jane has big dreams. She wants to buy a house and she also wants to go on vacation with her baby, maybe to Hawaii. But instead of living her dreams, Jane was living paycheque to paycheque, only able to make minimum payments on her five (5) credit cards and was physically sick from all the stress of her finances.


When I met Jane, her first question to me was: 

“How could I be so broke when I work for $70,000 a year?”


On my recommendation, Jane signed up for my Financial Breakthrough program. At the end of the program, Jane was no longer living paycheque to paycheque and on a repayment schedule to pay off all her debts in three (3) years.


Jane is also using strategies to rebuild her damaged credit in time for when she will be ready to purchase her home. I created an emergency fund savings plan for Jane and she has also started saving for her retirement. Jane is now also able to put money towards an education savings plan for her baby.


Jane filed her taxes for the first time in five (5) years and received a refund of $6,000, some of which she is using for her vacation to Hawaii. And of course, Jane is also saving up for a down payment towards her first home.


So, believe me when I say that I am in the business of making dreams come true, because I am. There are many women out there who will see themselves in this story, if you are reading this, please reach out to me, I can help you.
