I think it's important to give a hand up, particularly to other women (and other parents), whenever we can. It's only by sheer, dumb luck that my family was born where we were and have had some of the opportunities that we have. It's our responsibility to share that good fortune as much as we can.
For the past five years, my daughter, Hayden (age 8), has helped me choose who we loan money to. She loves hearing the stories, particularly when the people have young children, and is developing a social conscience at a very early age!
I work in corporate sponsorship. I assist companies to make good decisions about how to spend their money. I also write books and teach companies how to spend their sponsorship money wisely, as well as teaching organisations how to raise money.
