How Women and Men Use the Internet:

According to research done by PewInternetWomen are catching up to men in most measures of online life. Men like the internet for the experiences it offers, while women like it for the human connections it promotes.”

Do you believe that? I certainly do.

It is my belief that women are taking over. What exactly are we taking over, we will see in the year to come.. However, women are hitting the internet in droves and we seem to be ignored in terms of making the money. On the contrary, according to PackagedFacts.com, “women responsible for $55 billion of technology purchases yearly.” That’s a lot of pda’s and notebooks.

PewInternet.com’s research may be a little off point because it goes on to state that women are last when it comes to testing out the newest techie gadget and we are also last in terms of the intensity of which we pursue internet activities. If women are spending $55 billion, and we are last, then what the heck are men spending?

On the contrary, PewInternet’s research has showed that women on the web are seeking more personal connections with their web experiences.

What exactly does that mean and why should we women care what they say?

Well, let me first state that this is a no-brainer. I mean, women think differently, we make decisions differently, we have a different sense of humor, and most importantly, what appeals to us is different.

Doesn’t it make perfect sense that women on the web would approach it differently? Women are nurturing and gentle creatures (well, some of us). We are passionate and driven things that just don’t appeal to men. For example, I love to turn on some light jazz, light the candles and get in a tub full of the bubbly. It just makes me feel all soft and pink. I am sure that the majority of men on this planet can’t appreciate that simple moment the way we do.

With that said, it’s no wonder we seek connections or shall we say a bit of intimacy on the web. That is a gift that we have and we are naturally gonna use it.

What I’m leading to here is the fact that you, ladies, are in the right place and the right time. Just look at the statistics. Do you think that the major players in game will be trying to get some of your pocket change? HECK YEAH! They want our money and they are beginning to realize the power of the female dollar. I say make them work hard for it. Don’t just open up. (No pun intended.)

Women are making major decisions with major cash in hand. It is my belief that we too, should be the ones not only spending but raking in the dough. Hence, ProfitableSistas.com. Let’s make this happen.

50 Most Powerful Women In Business

Ladies,

I’m not sure if you’ve seen the list of the 50 most powerful women in business. But MoneyCnn.com recently released it and all I could say is WHOA!

These women are doing the damn thing.

Ladies, I’m not sure if you’ve seen the list of the 50 most powerful women in business. But MoneyCnn.com recently released it and all I could say is WHOA!

These women are doing the damn thing.

Now. Now. Trust me. The women in business that are featured in that article are working their butts off. Yes. They are to be admired. Some of them are raking in a cool $19 million dollars a year. That’s a heck of a lot of extra play money. Talk about shopping and having the best of the best.

This is my take on the 50 Most Powerful Women In Business.

This article names some heavy-hitters. From the likes of Meg Whitman of Ebay to Oprah Winfrey of Harpo to Heidi Miller of J.P. Morgan Chase. These are some profitable sistas, indeed.

I am not sure what your goal is. However, my main objective in becoming a profitable sista is to work less and make more. Don’t get me wrong, I know I’ll have to work, if I want to earn Gucci shoe money.

But, and that’s a big but, being that I live in New York and all…..

photo by walkinggeek I want to be able to have the option of looking out the window and seeing 4 feet of that white icky stuff, making a cup of java and creepign up to my office to do a little work – if you know what I mean. I doubt very much that either of the 50 Most powerful women in business can do that.

Yes! They can pay someone to shovel the snow for them. Yes! They can have the cook prepare them the most delicate meals and buy the most expensive handbags, but the truth of the matter is the above mentioned women in business have to get get dressed and go to work or somebody’s gonna be real angry. The show must go on….

I’m not bashing. I’m just saying. What would you prefer?


Girl Power – Whatever!

In case you think that creating an online business is really difficult and you have to have a pocketbook full of money or rich family or know some guru to joint venture with, think again. It’s nonsense.

I just stumbled upon a great article about an internet marketing women (excuse me) young lady who is 17 years old. Yeah! You hard me. I said 17 years old and she is a millionaire. Ashley Quall is her name and Myspace is her game.

Dayuuuum. This sista is doing the darn thing. No more excuses ladies.

My Mom Was Diagnosed

It is with much dismay that I write to inform you that my mom was diagnosed with colon cancer.

The frustrating thing is that we have been trying to get her to take a colonoscopy for over a year. I will keep you informed of her progress. Please pray for her. Her name is Diane.

Because of this unfortunate event I will shy away from posting until she recovers from surgery.

Thanks for all your prayers and support.

**Update. Surgery went well. Doctors don’t think the cancer has spread too much.

**Update. Mom needs chemotherapy. Ohhhh brother. This is very scary indeed.

**Update. Went to oncologist who informed us that she will have to get a device implanted in her chest. Then have the chemo inserted into the device every two weeks for the next six months. It’s gonna be a long ride.

**Update. Mom is considering not doing the chemo. This situation is really testing my faith. I’ll keep you posted. She did the Cat-scan today of the abdomen and pelvis area to see make sure cancer has not spead to other organs. I will keep you posted.

***Update. Mom is going for her last chemo treatment. The chemo was not that hard on her and she did very well. However, she has just been diagnosed with bleeding retina’s, so we are scheduling laser eye surgery. Pray for her…. 08/27/08
