Top 10 Reasons A Woman Can Fail In Business:
1. Gossip and B****
It is amazing how many women in business still do this and is possibly the most damaging thing in their career. If you gossip about others you can be sure you will not be respected or trusted. People may agree with you but you may wake up and find they are gossiping about you too. Don’t put other people down whether they are male or female, it is very simply unprofessional.
2. Dress inappropriately
Work is no place for a fashion parade. Clothes that are appropriate for evening wear have no place in the professional world. Dragging yourself to work in track pants gives the impression that you don’t care. Don’t dress in a way that detracts from your professionalism. It is good to have your own style, but just think about why you are there.
3. Don’t bother to plan or set goals for yourself
Many women start out setting goals and then forget about them. Short-term and long -term goals need to be checked, and if necessary adjusted, regularly. Keep yourself on track. Plan your career, your year, your week and your day. The old adage is still true – if you fail to plan you plan to fail.
4. Be Subservient
Many women think that if they speak up they will be seen as bossy or aggressive. Quite the opposite is true. If you have something of value to say, then say it. No one ever advanced their career by being a doormat.
5. Fail to Prioritize
Some women think volunteering for everything will give the impression that they are hard workers. What happens though when you really do have too much to do and start to miss deadlines? Don’t put too much on your plate and always prioritize both in your business and home life.
6. Interrupt others
This is almost the opposite of the subservient woman. Listen to and empathize with others and you will be appreciated and listened to in return.
7. Ignore your personal life
Throwing everything into your business life to the detriment of your personal life leads to stress and eventually disappointment and burn-out. Every woman needs time out for herself and time to have fun. Plan for it if you want to stay ahead and be an interesting person.
8. Avoid public speaking
For many of us, speaking in public is terrifying. There will come a point though when you are going to have to give that report, or be asked to speak at a meeting or seminar. If you need to, take some courses in speaking to give you confidence.
9. Ignore criticism
If someone gives you criticism, take it with good grace. Take into account, who or where it is coming from and whether or not it is valid. If it is learn from it, if not just let it go.
10. Pretend to be Someone Else
If you try to be someone else it … Read More
There is a debilitating syndrome that has been around for years that is affecting women in home based business now more than ever. You don’t even know that you have it, until one day you wake up and you can’t function anymore. The symptoms include: not wanting to get out of bed in the morning, an inability to make decisions so you say “yes” to everything, irritableness and feeling overwhelmed to the point that if someone asks you to do one more thing you are going to scream.
What is the name of this horrible condition that affects so many of us. It’s called Super Woman Syndrome or as I like to call it, “My plate is piled way to high.”
Picture a huge 12 patty burger with each layer having cheese, onions, tomatoes lettuce, ketchup and mayo on it, as your life right now. Each thing on this burger is one more thing in your life that you have to keep precariously balanced so that the whole thing does not come crashing down on you. How can you even enjoy any of it? There is just so much.
What type of things do you have piled on your plate:
MOM (that includes, chauffeur, chief cook and bottle washer, nurse, referee, volunteering at numerous school and group things, launderer, accountant, and the list goes on.)
BUSINESS OWNER (manager, salesperson, delivery person, accountant, stock person, advertising agent, and so much more)
Most of us figure that if we just had more time in the day everything would be okay. Or if we just learn to manage our time better, it would work. Here’s my thought on the subject. Maybe you don’t need a time management course, but a priority course. We weren’t designed by our Creator to carry so-oo-oo much or to be everything to everyone. Your identity and self worth as a woman is not based on how many things you can juggle well. I really believe that we were each created for a great destiny and that we allow too many other things to take the time that is needed to accomplish our purpose. I am not saying to abandon your marriage or ignore your children. They are in fact the most precious and rewarding part of your life and your top priority, but if you are called to be a business person, then create a multi million $ business. If that means saying “no” to the good things so that you can have the best things then do it and DON’T feel guilty about it.
What extra things are you doing that you know that you really don’t have time for, but try to fit them in because someone really needed your help? Like your friend calls and says, “I just feel like going shopping today can you watch the kids for me?” Maybe you are involved in groups and everyone expects you to do everything because you are the best at it, while there are other … Read More
Do you want to have the kind of life where you just get to pick which girl to out with? How do you develop a life where you can just call up your favourite girl and tell her to meet you? Put in the effort, and you can do it.
Your #1 choice? When most men think of meeting single women, their thoughts usually turn to nightclubs and bars. They’re not a bad choice. I’m not going to tell you the same old stuff about them. Hey, it’s one option.
The problems start when night clubs and bars are the only places where you’re really doing anything to meet women. If you’re a musician, you cannot expect to walk through life not paying any attention to music, and then suddenly turn on when you get on your instrument. If you’re a writer, you cannot expect inspiration to suddenly come to you when you sit down to write.
The same with meeting women – it’s an art. And a true artist is always open and always giving thought to his art. You need to be on the go 24/7.
And this goes beyond always dressing for style so you’re ready to talk to women anywhere you go. By the way, do this – it goes without saying that you need to be prepared. However, what I really mean is you have to be in “open” mode.
“Open” mode. By this I mean you need to be open to conversation EVERYWHERE you go. How do you develop that attitude? Easy – go through what I call the stranger-a-day experiment. For whatever time feels comfortable – 7 days, one month – promise yourself you’ll say something to a stranger, for every single day.
When you pass by a girl waiting in a bus stop and she catches your eye – turn and say “hi”. If she looks at you weird, you have at least accomplished your goal – you talked to her.
What this experiment will do for you. You will be surprised at how amazing this feels – being willing to talk to any girl, anywhere. When you develop this willingness, you can work wonders in any room you go to. Then your task is reduced to finding the places where your types of women go to.… Read More
If you want to learn how to attract men, this contrarian advice could be just what you need to stand out from all the other women out there. Women are too often trying harder than they have to to get the attention of a man. Men like women who are effortlessly attractive. As thick as we can be, we can detect it when a woman isn’t being herself, just like you can for us. If you’re naturally aloof or cold, this may actually increase your chances of getting a man who will be interested in you. Don’t believe me? I’ll explain how this works below.
Men can’t help but feel attracted to women who reject them. When men don’t get what they want, they want it more. Really, it’s with everyone in life, but when it comes to women, us guys feel more determined when a woman turns us down.
In a way, we interpret rejection as really meaning “try harder”. That’s why some men can be so persistent to the extent where the woman feels like he’s trying too hard or even worse, tries to stalk her. Anyway, just know that by being cold, you’re rejecting him and that’s making him try harder.
2. Standing Out
If you want attention from a man who gets a lot of female attention, by being cold, you stand out. Instead of going up to the man and being friendly, he’ll be scouting around for someone who isn’t flocking to him and trying to earn his love.
You can literally do nothing and have a man. Of course, if you really are cold and don’t want attention, the man will be able to sense this and won’t come near you, but if you are interested in him, it will work out.
3. Give It, Take It Away
This is how to really ramp up the coldness and make him more interested in you than ever before. If you give him something he wants, like a bit of warmth, he will feel like he’s earned it.
The key though is to not give it to him all the time. Make it hard to get and he’ll want it more than ever. You should be doing more taking away of what you’re giving instead of giving more endlessly.
If you want to learn how to attract men, being cold is great way to get a man’s attention and to get him chasing you instead of the other way around.… Read More
Looking to uncover ways to seduce a woman that actually work better than most? Seducing a woman is often looked at as one of those dark arts that only certain guys can master and that you have to kind of adopt a certain lifestyle in order to actually make it happen. Basically, it is often thought of being something that the average guy can pretty much forget about ever being able to do.
Of course, this is NOT the truth. Any man, no matter what his lifestyle and experience is, can learn many ways to seduce a woman that will work out quite well. And the best part is, when you know the proper ways to seduce women, you can be pretty sure that your weekends are NOT going to be spent alone or out with a bunch of guys!
Here are some time tested ways to seduce a woman:
1. Take her on a date that leaves her breathless. When you take a woman out on a date, if you do what every other man she has ever met has done, then you really are not making THAT big of an impression on her. However, if you think a little more creatively and you take her on a date that is special to her, and will leave her breathless, then seducing her will actually become pretty easy. You want to make her feel like, “WOW, that was the best time that I ever had!”
2. Be confident about yourself, but NEVER cocky. Cockiness is a real turnoff for almost all women. There is a percentage of women that do get turned on by cocky and arrogant men, but they usually have a lot of issues to go along with it. If you want to have a lot of success with seducing a woman, then you need to learn how to properly balance yourself and be confident, but never cocky.
3. Melt her heart by being spontaneous. When a woman is out with a guy, or chatting up a guy she has just met, it usually be quite a surprise when he does something spontaneous. See, most guys pretty much do the same thing. There really is not a big difference in how most guys try to talk and flirt with a woman. However, you have to be spontaneous if you really want to succeed at seducing her. Routine is boring, spontaneity is seductive.… Read More
