Unemployed Women: “Create a Back Door by Starting Your Own Business”

This post was most recently updated on August 12th, 2010

In my psychic business this week, 5 of my calls were from women who were recently unemployed.  These are power women who are young, intelligent, hold MBA’s or other credible degrees.  These women were all in shock and awe because they were doing a good job.  They just woke up one morning, went to work and received their pink slip.  All from different cities and all from different paths of careers.  They were all professionals in their field.  Now what are the chances that 5 out of the 15 readings I have done this week can this happen? Is it a coincidence?  I don’t believe those numbers are when you look at things statistically.  I am speaking from a tiny piece of the world.  I see this as a trend.  More and more women are getting let go from the work force. As women, we have to try so hard to juggle our obligations. This is not discounting men out there…I’m writing this about women only, so guys don’t be insulted o.k.?

In the tri-state area alone I find that there is so much unemployment going on.  Is this a sign of a “new age?”  Well gals, I have predicted this for the past two years now.  I have encouraged people to create a back door for themselves by creating their own business on the side.  The trouble is that the trend of most corporate companies is getting to work at 9 and leave around 8 pm.  Not to mention the stress levels people have with the “what if I get fired”  energy going around.   Most of the women are single and have to pay high prices to be near the metro area.  When they become terminated, they go into a stress mode because their overhead is too high.

My predictions are unfortunately rapidly coming into fruition.  There not happy ones, but we can all learn from them.  People think they are safe when they are working for someone. We all have seen what happened to the 401K’s in the past and the pensions going to pot.  So where is the “security?”  I’ll tell you:  Security is within.  We are all blessed with a talent.  We have to dig into ourselves and express that talent and capitalize it.  You may be a teacher, an accountant, an assistant, etc.  These are skills that you have learned.  In Social Media and Network Marketing I have seen the teacher learn how to teach classes online.  I have seen the assistant and accountant become virtual assistants and accountants.  It really can work.  There is a lot of controversy about Network Marketing trends, but as an intuitive, I have seen this coming a long time ago.  So what did I personally do from my own predictions?  I jumped into that pool.  I am an Internet  Marketing Counselor now too!   It took hard work to learn marketing which was something I never thought of doing, but I have been blessed by finding the best mentors in the field.  They were and still are always giving.

I created my psychic business years and years and in doing Network Marketing is sort of the same thing.  You meet people and socialize with them.  They become your friends, mentors, business partners and customers.  The point of all this is that Girls Get Out There and think beyond the box.   If you are working, create that back door no matter how much work it takes.  It is of the utmost importance to have a mentor and system to follow to become  successful on the Internet.  YOU AN BE TOO!

Right now one of the people I am mentoring is a clothing designer for large size women’s clothing.  She was fired from a major company several months ago.  She was doing things the old fashion way; pounding the pavement and making connections there.  Once she jumped into Network Marketing, she found there were groups of people out there to support her.  Bottom line here is that people are buying her designs.

So I urge you women to create a back door!  Don’t make the decision that Social Media and Internet Marketing not for you until you have found a network that works!   You won’t become a millionaire overnight, that’s silly.   It takes learning and fortitude to put things into action.  You can have an idea and run with it if you are with the right connections and have things in place.  If you need any suggestions, please reply.  Women of the world have to keep it going!   We are multi-taskers by nature, especially if we have families.

    I am a singer living in New York City. I have a master of music from The University of Oklahoma. I wait tables, cater, am getting certified to teach Zumba. I have an interview tomorrow for a part-time sales rep position here in the city. In my spare time, I respond to adds on craig’s list for jobs because I am 30 years old, and i’m working my ass off and I have no money. I can’t even pay my bills myself. My 67 year old dad, who is about to retire, helps me EVERY MONTH. I am nearly at my wits end. I followed up on a post for EN but it really doesn’t look like something I want to buy into. In fact I don’t even know what I would market… Myself? My singing, modeling, acting? how does this translate to trying to support yourself in a setting where you want to be a performer? Sorry if this seems scattered, I just know I have more to offer the world then “how would you like your eggs sir?” and becoming an opera singer takes time, and money for training. please give me some insight!!

      Hi Kristen,

      There is no get rich quick business on the internet. That I have to tell you first. It does take time, but if you are willing to put your passion to the test, here are some ideas I came up for you. I looked at your website and heard you sing. You are AWESOME.


      Go to clickbank.com You will see that they are a service to help you monetize whatever skills you have. This means that you create a product and sell it on clickbank. For example: check out superiorsingingmethod.com/sing-better-fast-new

      That’s a clickbank product teaching people to sing better. This is just an idea of the sort of thing you can do.

      You could also Google Blogs:singing and see what blogs there are in your niche. You’ll probably find some that are monetizing, meaning that they are selling singing related stuff or trainings on their blogs.

      Play around with these ideas and let me know what you think. If you need help along the way, get back to me.

    Hi Donna. Thanks for the excellent info in your post! I will pass it along because I see that everyone could use a back door in this economy. And it seems you have gone through an empowering transformation yourself. Congratulations on all your success!

    Thanks Kellie,
    I firmly believe we create our own future and I seen it in action with my clients. I’ve seen people make a complete turn around for their highest good just because they took that one little step out of their box. Donna
