Default A huge need for more women writers.

We need more women writers in marketing, business and online.

We have been advocates of women in business since day one. A short list of women I've referred to include:

Paulette Ensign, the booklet baroness
http://www.tipsbooklets.com/

Marcia Yudkin, I own several of her books
http://www.yudkin.com/index.htm

June Davidson, runs a seminar training company
http://www.asla.com/

Jinny Beyer, want to see how to do it?
http://www.jinnybeyer.com/

Of course, there are scores of women marketers, but...I'd like to see more of them, especially in Internet Marketing,

Ones which keep their voices and don't become a clone of an IM guru...

we have enough of those already.

We believe there is a huge market for women writers who will share their business experiences with new generations of women doing business.

Default Re: A huge need for more women writers.

One thing I've noticed over my long Entroopeneerial Career is that.....WOMEN, especially "Single Mothers" have been VERY SUCCESSFUL with some of the projects I've created over the years.

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
and
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!

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.

Oh Puleeze....I surely Hope and Pray that another "FRAUD"....ie "Far Left Socialist" (aka ANTI-CAPITALIST ON WHICH this COUNTRY WAS FOUNDED and who has Profited with BILLIONS into HER Control....via CAPITALISM).....does NOT get into Control....just because she's "Da FIRST Female Pres)

Gimme a break! We tried a "Socialist" and discovered that "SOCIALISM" ...DOES NOT WORK! IT'S BEEN PROVEN TO NOT WORK....TIME and TIME AGAIN! IT IS BASED ON LIES and SUBTERFUGE!

So.....this time around, YOU who want to be controlled by the FIRST....FEMALE ....even though SHE's an avowed Socialist.......and (IMHO) a FRAUD who will say ANYTHING and DO ANYTHING....JUST TO GET ELECTED and COLLECT ZILLIONS from "Capitalism" ??????

GOD HELP US!

Don Alm.....who discovered EARLY in life that .....IT IS UP TO ME, MYSELF AND I TO .....WRITE MY OWN PAYCHECKS and NOT BE DEPENDENT UPON ANYONE ELSE FOR MY LIVELIHOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Also: I know a few Outspoken and Educated DWARFS in my community....anyone of which have MORE MOXY than the "hopefully not, 1st Female Pres....just because she's FEMALE!! Gimme a break! How bout da first " DWARF" President! I GUARANTEE YA......the little gal I know has MORE "COMMON SENSE" den da 1st Female vying for the position! YUCK! It's OVER America! Da Libs have Won......git ready fer a "Knock on yer door from da "Liberal Gestapo"!

Wow.....in my early college days (back in da 60s)....when I first heard FEMALES in my "age group" taking about "Haight Ashbury" in San Fran and "FREE Love" and "Let It All Hang Out"!...."We are FREE!" Ya Right! FREE to those initial humans who "fell for da "IF IT FEELS GOOD....DO IT!

So.....it's taken 55 yrs to have the results of "Socialist Brain Washing" and IN-doctronation by Lib Professors (who grew up with the idea that "Capitalism" is wrong!....EVERY ONE SHOULD BE EQUAL!

"Hey, Johnny.....how much is 2 + 2?"? Johnny answers with "FIVE"! and the teacher says, "Hey Johnny! YOU are wonderful! YOU came SOOOO Close! Let me kiss you on the forehead for being being So close!"

YUCK! Do YOU....who are reading THIS....have a CLUE....as to what kind of Country our Grand Kids will be living in?????????

I DOUBT IT! WHY? BECAUSE YOU ARE AFRAID! YOU KNOW WHAT'S RIGHT BUT......YOU DON'T HAVE THE GUTS TO STAND UP FOR WHAT......YOU....KNOW....IS RIGHT!

SO......Ya better gather up all yer Moolah and stuff and.....find an island to live on fer da rest of yer miserable days because.....DA LIBERAL SOCIALISTS ARE COMING AT YA!

Don Alm....long-time Capitalist and PROUD of it

Default A friendly reminder Don.

As we get closer to election season, there will be a lot less tolerance for any and ALL political rants. I hope we don't have to start deleting posts because of them.

Some of the most successful "marketers" in the world are women...

I put "marketers" in quotes - because we don't always think of them as marketers!

Let's say, Oprah Winfrey... You wouldn't think of her as a "marketer," usually. But any mention of a book when she still had her TV show would instantly propel it to the top of the bestseller charts!

She's not a multi-billionaire for nothing (worth $3 billion now, apparently)...

I think you can learn a lot about marketing from Oprah... And, she staked her own path - and did it a different way from those who came before her...

Just my 2 cents...!

Best wishes,

Dien

Default Ellen, Meg, Sara and a slew of Chinese Billionaires.

Ellen Degeneres, fired after "coming out" on her TV show, she picked up the pieces and made her way to the top.

Meg Whitman, BILLIONAIREfrom eBay success.

Sara Blakely, BILLIONAIRE, of Spanx fame.

Many great examples, and YES, I think there are some good marketing lessons we can learn from all of them.

And of course, OPRAH is a marketing genius.

Default Re: A huge need for more women writers.

You guys missed Carly Fiorina. Who is she?

Maybe the next American president. She knows how to "market" herself and, no, I'm not in her camp.

I'm merely pointing out that being a "marketer" is what gets you into the highest office in the US.

So, one can take lessons from any niche if one's eyes are open.
