Five Tips for Women to Succeed In Male-Dominated Professions

Even though women have a lot more rights today than they had in the past, they are stilled viewed by many as being inferior to men. A woman who does the same job as a man will still bring home a smaller check just because she is a female. Women who work in male-dominated industries have an even harder time.

The good news is that there are several things that women can do to succeed in a male-dominated industry. Below are five success tips:

Know Your Profession

In order to do your job well, you have to have a good understanding of your profession. You should take the time to research so that you can find out more about your job. You should also ask questions if you feel that you do not understand something.

Set Short Term And Long Term Goals

One of the keys to getting ahead in your profession is to set both short term and long term goals. You want to set the bar high, but you should make sure that your goals are realistic. I want to be named the employee of the month six months for now is an example of a great short term goal. I want to receive a promotion is an example of an excellent long term goal. You also want to put a plan in action that will help you achieve those goals.

Be Willing To Go The Extra Mile

Because people may already view you as inferior just because you are a woman, you have to be willing to work harder. You should go to work a little bit early and stay a little later a couple of days out of the week. You should also volunteer to take on a new project. Hard work really does pay off, and your efforts will eventually be rewarded.


If you want to get ahead in a male-dominated industry, then you will have to learn how to prioritize. Prioritizing is defined as putting the most important things in your life first. At the beginning of every work week, you should make a schedule. You should try your best to stick to this schedule. For moms running a small business, if you struggle to find time balancing between spending time at home and at work, consider set up one of the virtual offices. You can then work from home while still have someone mending your mail and phone messages.

Surround Yourself With Positive People

You will most likely have people telling you that you cannot do something simply because you are a woman. That can get quite frustrating, so you want to make sure that you have a couple of positive people around you to balance out the negativity.

It is a shame that we are in the 21st century, and women are stilled viewed as being inferior to men. Fortunately, if you have a good understanding of your profession, prioritize, set goals, work hard and surround yourself with positive people, then you will be able to get ahead in your career.

Best Time to Shop for Women’s Clothing Online

With the ease with which we can buy fashionable clothing online, more and more women are encouraged to shop especially since they can do all the shopping they want from the comfort of home. In fact, market reports say that there has been an increase in consumer spending by 10% for apparel in the US in 2010, and  overall retail sales increased by 0.8% in March 2012. Clothes shopping costs money, however, so it is becoming very popular among online shoppers to target store closings or holiday sales to take advantage of discounts and buy more items for their money. Here are a few tips on how to pick the best days for shopping for women’s clothing online.

According to financial column MoneyWatch, there are specific days in the week where you can buy items from clothes to accessories at a discount. For example, Mondays are great for getting discounts on dress pants for both men and women. Most stores, offline as well as online, tend to slash prices for pants on Mondays since most stores want to replenish shelves with new stocks. You can browse and buy work apparel on Tuesdays to take advantage of discounts as well. According to the column, you can get an average of 42% off from work clothing and even men’s apparel if you shop on a Tuesday.

Moms and women looking for the best deals in dresses can get the best discounts on dresses and children’s apparel. The average discount can total up to 38-40%. Discounts on shoes are also  often given by most stores in the middle of the week. Women can get the best discounts on handbags on Thursdays while Fridays are good for getting jewelry, belts and scarves at lower prices. The average discount for these items is 42% although you can get them for much higher discounts if the store is doing a fire sale.

Experts recommend shopping for other items like swimsuits a few months before summer. Most online stores want to get rid of old swimsuit stocks starting September in anticipation of new swimsuit styles that are coming in. Women can also head out to the online stores that offer the most discounts all year round. These include Target, Forever 21, and Charlotte Russe. The day after the winter holiday is also a good day to shop for other items on discounts such as hats, scarves and other accessories owing to the influx of shoppers who are returning unwanted holiday gifts.

Making Money with your first blog!

Perhaps one of the most powerful tools in the world SEO is the blog, a well branded blog can craft hundreds if not thousands of indexed pages over the years, allows for excellent social interaction, and can quickly grow to be seen as an authority in Google not only solidifying your place in the SEO rankings but also increasing client conversions while maintaining a positive corporate image.

Many people out there have the ambition to start a blog, whether it be to promote themselves, their services, their company or just to make money online; and to many people this doesn’t mean going out and working with a nyc seo company but rather heading over to and starting their own little project.

Yet, these little projects can quickly grow big if the right steps are taken, but you have to understand the type of market place you are getting into:

1. Know your market

You should never write about anything you don’t know inside and out. Figure out something you are passionate about and could spend a great deal of time discussing at length and write about that topic and related topics. Maybe for you that’s something like gardening, or home repair. There is a common principle in the business world, that no matter what you do, if you do it better than anyone else you will be successful, so don’t be afraid that your niche could be a small one, there are bloggers who blog about vintage action figures and manage to pull down a six-figure a year income. Write from your heart, write something you know and something you are going to enjoy.

2. Locate your market

Your market is already online, somewhere at least. It’s all a matter of pin pointing where your market currently resides, whether this is on niche related forums, on youtube, on social networks. It’s your job to hunt them down and make them aware of your blog; this doesn’t mean expensive advertising (although if you have some budget the pay-per-click advertising on Facebook and Reddit works wonders), but rather it could be as simple as making a post on a gardening forum advertising your new blog (be sure to read the forum rules to see if they allow such ads first!)

3. Monetize your blog

For many people the simplest and most effective way to monetize their blog is through Google Adwords, who pay you a portion of the profits from every user click received, however for more advanced webmasters something like affiliate links (reviewing and selling someone else’s product for commission) or paid product placement may be a way to increase the profit margins of your blog

4. Socialize your blog

The beautiful thing about passionate people is they become advocates. If you like gardening enough to write about it and share it with the world then it’s safe to assume that there are other people out there who enjoying gardening enough to discuss it with their friends, to share ideas and concepts. These users are often referred to as advocates and they are a huge asset in marketing your blog to new users. Be sure your blog includes facebook and twitter share buttons to encourage these users to spread the word. Also consider asking questions in your posts so that users can engage you in the comments.
