Last year, Canna Campbell saved what many people earn in a single year.
Starting in September 2015, the single mum and creator of finance YouTube channel Sugar Mamma TV managed to save $32,000 in just 12 months.
Even better? Not a single cent came from her salary.
“I wanted to prove to people to stop being limited by your salary and defining your financial situation by your salary. I’m sick of hearing people say ‘I can’t afford to invest, I only earn $50,000 a year or whatever that number may be,” she said on the latest episode of I Don’t Know How She Does It.
“You have the capability of creating, manifesting, earning, saving money beyond the limitations of your salary.”

Campbell originally decided her goal would be having enough of a “passive income” – money earned outside of her annual wage – to buy a $2000 designer handbag each year.
It grew much bigger.
The 36 year old said she did a range of “weird and wonderful” things to reach her target of saving blocks of $1,000 each time.
