Young entrepreneurs Meg & Macy (13 years old) were fundraising for their Cheerleading club's travel expenses. They organised a cupcake bake sale and had successfully sold $160.00 of cupcakes when a women came up & asked them how much they would charge to make 60 cupcakes for her nieces birthday.
This was an exciting fundraising opportunity for Meg & Macy. So they listened intently as the women kept asking them questions.
She distracted their attention away from their table, and while she had them distracted she stole their $160.00 and ran off laughing at them!
I GOT SO MAD!
Meg and Macy's story really resonated with me on multiple levels...
- When I worked in a retail job I had the same experience as Meg & Macy. A group of people worked together to distract me and then stole stock. It's the most horrible feeling, being tricked and having your trust violated and you blame yourself too. As a Mum, I don't want these young women being scarred for life by this experience!
- I Want to Turn Around a Bad Experience Into a Great Result & Memory for Meg & Macy. As a Personal Style Consultant I'm like a Fairy Godmother for my clients and I want to be Meg and Macy's Fairy Godmother in this situation too.
Encourage Meg & Macy's Entrepreneurial Initiative. I want to encourage the girls so they remember a positive result to their initiative & hard work & don't get put off being entrepreneurs in the future.
My first Entrepreneurial experience was fund raising as a teenager, just like Meg & Macy. I was a member of the NZ Secondary Students Choir. To raise funds I created & managed a three part harmony singing group. We used the money we earned from our gigs to fund our choir trip. We travelled to Hawaii and won the top award at the Pacific Basin Choral Festival. An unforgettable life experience.
But I still remember how hard it was to fundraise. Every $160 towards your total counts, it's a big deal for Meg & Macy to lose that money.
Those early Fundraising experiences led me to become an entrepreneur as a adult, starting my current business Love Your Look in my 20's which has run for the past 15 years.Because of My Own Experiences I Know That
