Default Yea, and they're NOT huge chest thumpers either.

Without out all the testosterone, and usually without ego, they just get the job done. No brag, just fact.

Probably gonna have us a woman President soon too.

One example is "Sara"....a single mom of THREE.....I repeat THREE children.... who phoned me one day and said, "Hey Don! I heard about you from a friend who asked me to contact you that you might have a way for me to earn some money from my home. I live in Eugene, Oregon, just an hour north of you and I'd like to know if you might have some way I could earn money from my home. My husband left me and I don't have any money to invest in a business!"

WOW!.....when I picked up my phone that day.....I was AWESTRUCK! At that time, I was involved with SELLING Biz-Ops for $1,500 .....for a program that involved having people contact local; Dentists, Doctors, Medical Clinics, Chiros, Auto Services......offering to do their "Appointment Verification" calls.

Holy Cammoly......when my (very popular) dentist told me he has ONE person who spends TWO HOURS A DAY.....VERIFYING upcoming Appointments..... I instantly thought, "HEY! Why doesn't little ol' ME provide THIS service for a pittance of what he's paying now?

So.....I researched "Appointment Verification Programs" and found many firms doing this and charging BouCoup amounts so....I put together a Program where one of my "students" could start an "Appointment Verification" program and......with my FIRST "Student" (Sara).....she would get in FREE!

Thus.....I set up the program on 2 basis;
1) How To GET Accounts
2) How To DO the Service

Results being....starting from $25 a Day for 5 days a week....working from how, just making phone calls.....Sara NOW has a HUGE base of clients and THREE.....FULL TIME Assistants!

Also (another FEMALE SUCCESS STORY).....I came across "Amy" who was working at a local Mini-Market (2 kids an NO husband).....who asked me one morning, "Hey Don! YOU got any ideas on any ways of making money in this town?"

Later in the day, I went to see her and she told me she was one of the TOP "Yellow Page Reps" in the County BUT.....because of the Internet, the Local Phone Book was cutting back on Sales People!

SO.....I ran home to my "Man-Cave"....grabbed some of my "Pizza Box Flyers", ran back to show her some of the Pizza Flyers I had done and.....she EXPLODED! THIS was exactly what she was looking for!

WOWEE....HOWEE! This little gal went on to "Sell the "SH_T" out of this to where she NOW has her own Ad Agency....with MANY Accounts paying her Handsomely!

And.... as an Aside from my experience with "FEMALE" Sales Persons.....since my first biz (Burglar Alarms) I've found that WOMEN get.....PREFERENTIAL TREATMENT & CONSIDERATION from Biz Owners!

Thus.....if YOU have a "Door To Door" sales project ......think FEMALE! to get the job done FASTc!
