Baby Boomer Women Working At Home and Beyond

I loved my career in nursing and can tell you that anyone, male or female, would be hard pressed to find as many open doors as my two nursing degrees gave me.  Getting both, a BSN and MSN, is worth all of the hoops you have to jump through for 3 very good reasons:  education, education, education.  Without knowledge, people perish. For the sake of those whose lives you touch, know what you're doing, no matter what it is.

No matter what you choose to do, learning has to be Priority One, even if it's choosing to retire.  For me as a retired nursing director, an all new whirlwind of education was required.  Why?  Because of HUGE responsibility.

Baby Boomer Women 

If you are a women between 45 - 65 years old, do you have any idea how much economic and influencial power you have?  Here's just the tip of the iceberg from www.nabbw.com.

  • By 2030, 54% of the 78 million American Boomers will be women. Used to shaping our own lives, marching, picketing, campaigning and protesting we will have the power to speak out and take action as never before.
  • Women have stepped to the forefront as the force in making consumer purchasing decisions, from 91% of homes, 60% of cars and 51% of electronics; an estimated $20 trillion annually.
  • Baby Boomers hold more than 90% of the country’s net worth and account for 78% of all financial assets.
  • Netting out to the fact that Boomer women control over 60% of the nation’s wealth. Since we outlive men by an average of five years, we can expect that we will live to see a time when 80-90% of women will be in charge of their family’s financial affairs.
  • As we enter the second decade of the 21st century, women are on the verge of attaining economic parity with men—something our great-grandmothers and grandfathers would never have imagined.
  • With this new economic fortitude, women have the opportunity to take previously untapped power into their hands to influence the direction of the marketplace, the workplace, the family, and worldwide leadership.
  • By the year 2030, there will be 71.5 million Americans age 65 or older, more than double the number currently within that demographic. And more than half of them will be women.

Make More Retired Than Hired

Here's what I'm finding out... 

Sharing information is fast becoming the ultimate business model but very few baby boomer women realize their potential for doing exactly that.  Let me explain...

Because of the internet, you can build a business working at home by training others to do the same.  For example, as I learn how to make money online, I'm getting paid to train others to do the same.  By developing a few skills, you can create another source of income.  It's not as difficult as people think. 

The list of skills sounds intimidating but these skills are not hard if you learn them step-by-step, click-by-click with someone who has already learned how the hard way (me :)

These skills are a means of making money online for me...  I used to say "I'm making money online at 59!" until my last birthday :)  Here's what I can help you with:

  • search engine optimization
  • business blogging
  • video marketing
  • social media marketing
  • multi-level marketing
  • article marketing
  • affiliate marketing
  • email marketing
  • lead generation
  • product creation
  • and much more

Don't get me wrong, it's not a get-rich-quick set of skills but eventually.... sharing what you know online can create income for you and your family.  There are 7-figure entrepreneurs who focus solely on building an online business that provides nothing but information.  And baby boomer women are especially good at it!  Information products are in high demand and 100s of thousands are sold online every day.  Give it a try!  Start by signing up for my free Terri-fic Tips Newsletter today!

Women Baby Boomers Are Becoming Wealthy Entrepreneurs

Women baby boomers are fast becoming the wealthy entrepreneurs of this decade.  As we approach 2010, you could be one of them.  I don't know yet about the gender breakdown but an AARP study by the RAND Corporation found that about one in three business owners age 51 to 60 made the transition to self-employment at or after age 50.

Here's another interesting finding - the US Dept. of Labor has reported recently that almost half the 7.4 million self employed business owners in America are baby boomers.  

Many Baby Boomer Women Start With An Online Business

I love this quote:

"Entrepreneurs create wealth by saving money earned through commercial enterprise. Governments dissipate wealth by spending money as fast as they get it. Sometimes, they spend it wisely on programs that have lasting value. More often, they waste it on war and politically popular causes that have no economic value at all."      Michael Masterson, Early To Rise

Why does that quote hit home with me?  Because my background is healthcare.  In a very, very short time in history, the coverage for my services as a critical care nurse shrank.  Suddenly, as a Cardiac Care Unit Manager, that once had all of the resources necessary to save lives every single day, found herself in a panic situation. 

Almost over night, things changed.  Without going into the details of the decline of healthcare services, let me just say that many clinically expert baby boomer women in positions of authority lost their influence to promote health and wellness at a time that critically ill patients needed us. 

So, what does that have to do with now?  PLENTY!  Now baby boomer women are in the drivers' seat.  When baby boomer women speak, people listen.  Why?    can we create wealth by saving money?  Does that sound like a silly question?  Who can save money these days?  Well, we can.  

But not if all we have is a job.  We have to earn money through our own commercial enterprise.  In other words, if you have a job right now, chances are, the job will never be the vehicle where you can earn enough money to save, and even if we could, it won't be enough to create wealth.  Entrepreneurs create wealth.  Hired people usually can't. 

But baby boomer women are catching on to the fact that a huge wave of wealth creators are on the rise.  And as I said, you can be one of them.  You might be a hirling now but no one can stop you from making more retired than hired -  that is, no one except you.  You can stop yourself from creating wealth before you even begin.  It's easy to give up your dreams when you're approaching 60 years old. 

Most people are approaching 60.  There are 79 million baby boomers living right now and about half of them are us - baby boomer women.  Although most people actually spend more money than they make, that is not the huge trend on the horizen.  The current state of most working women right now is that they are not running their own company. 

The fact is, as long as we work for someone else, they make a fortune, we make a living.  And retiring early with much of a nest egg is only for the very few.  So why not consider, as you approach 60 or 70 - why not consider starting your own business, an internet business.

There Really Is A Way To Make More "Retired" Than Hired

As you probably know, it really is more blessed to give than to receive.  We have to give first in order to succeed as Baby Boomer Business Women.  It's a natural law.  We naturally are attracted to givers, who unselfishly offline.  Well, it is exactly the same online. 

The internet is full of non-attraction marketing.  So if you offer value first, it is a very pleasant surprise to people who are surfing the internet and find you. 

When you search for information online, you aren't usually looking for a person to get to know or a new product to buy.  Usually we go online to find information, right?  Maybe even a solution to a problem or dilemma.  True?

First, You Must PRE-Sell

Yes, I am in business and I am making sales but I believe it's because I've learned to PREsell. 

Did you read the post before this one?  The reality is that my online biz is quite literally easier to manage than a job or an offline business.  When women get this, it's so empowering and motivating that nothing can stop us!

Here's a post-it note for you...  Online, if we over-deliver online with our writing or someone else's, providing high quality value information for people, real people who are searching for what you offer.  

Be credible.  Success on the net all begins with giving.  Think of your "pages," posts, forum conversations, etc. as YOU, Inc. 

Creating "You Inc." Can Be The Good, The Bad, Or The Ugly

Don't be a stranger with a sales pitch.  Be the personable YOU, not the commercial you.  We all have a pushy side that can get ugly.  We don't mean to be bad.  We just want to be sure everyone understands our point of view for their sake.  Women are like that so of naturally.  BUT, we shouldn't be that way as a first impression, especially online.  

Believe it or not, there truly is a place in business for what some call "hype."  But it only has a GOOD result when the commercial YOU follows the real you who has learned to market well using words that help people discover the value you have to offer.

Make More "Retired" Than Hired!

Yes!  It can be done but not overnight.  Online Network Marketing or any Internet Marketing for that matter is like many entrepreneurial offline adventures except for one thing - it takes time but not as much and it takes money but not as much.  Don't quit your day job yet.  Just get started online.  I can help.  Just call me!  918.830.6900 or book an appointment at the top right.  I'm my own boss now, an ex-exec and I love it!  You will too!

How To Build An Online Business

So, how do you build a successful online business? How long does it take to get your first check?

Well, all I can tell you is my story. You can begin immediately and see your first check a lot sooner than I did although I was quite happy with that first check coming in after just 3 months of putting up this blog. I almost framed it :)

The formula for success that works for me is explained well by the "Site Build It!" founder, Ken Envoy. This is his formula, but it's exactly what I do. Although I write almost every week about each part of this equation, that doesn't mean the same topic is right for you.  If you didn't click yet on Site Build It! above, do that now to see what I mean. 

So let's look at this formula for building a successful business online.  Content refers to videos, articles, blogging, advertising, etc.  Your web of content online is step one.  I started with this blog.

 

  

Content

But there are many ways to put up content.  Those who are really serious about an online business should not mess around with a blog.  Use Site Build It! so that you can get into profitability sooner and not later.  Blogging for business like I'm doing is much slower but it's a great way to start if you just want added income.  

I started making money after I had about 30 pieces of content pointing back to this blog, linking to it with the right keywords for my target market. 

Traffic

Basically, there are four really great ways to bring traffic to your central "hub" like a blog or your main website. 

  1. Social media networking
  2. Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
  3. Email Marketing
  4. Article Marketing

But even if you just do two of the four, you can succeed.  Notice, I didn't include ads.  Successful advertising actually takes a lot of study.  Don't start with that.  If you are reading this post, you probably 

  • met me online at a social media site or
  • found me on google using keywords that are all about internet MLM, or 
  • read some of my articles elsewhere that linked here or
  • you're on my list and I sent you an email

PRE-sell

Preselling is NOT selling. I know that doesn't really explain it but it's so important do much more than just hype. There is a place for hype. There really is a way to make hype and the hard sell work.  A good sales pitch is sometimes necessary but not until you get to the last piece of the formula - monetization. The rest of the time you are pre-selling.

So what does that mean.  Basically, it means selling yourself first.  Pre-selling means gaining trust. It means people are sold on you and the content you provide.

After successful pre-selling, you can easily not just sell, but build a business.

Making a few online sales now and then versus building a successful online business... they're actually two different things.

Monetization

After Pre-selling, now you can sell :) Content, driving traffic and preselling are all part of getting to know your customers.  They help you learn what they're looking for as you interact with them online in forums and from the comments they leave on your articles, videos, blog posts, etc. 

If you provide enough value up front for free in order to meet the needs of your target market, they will become your customers.   

Just remember that whatever you use to monetize your central website needs to be great stuff, or you'll loose them. The first three steps of the formula, content, traffic and preselling, will build business relationships. The last piece of the formula, the sale, is a natural result of the business relationships you build.

The Sales Funnel

I have another article to help with the overall concept of building your marketing content strategy.  After you build it, they will come, and then you can take a break and see the world!  It is the initial set up that takes a few months, then it's just a matter of two things, add more content and more traffic.  It isn't that hard after a while because your satisfied customers spread the word.  That's the best advertising and it's free, but you have to earn it.  

Here's another way to see the overview of how a successful online business works. The Sales Funnel Of Internet Network Marketing.
