This morning I was doing keyword research on topics regarding making money online so that I could create content for those that want to generate more income and while gathering information, I noticed that there were thousands of people searching on Google for websites where men give you money.
Everybody likes money, but I can’t let my ladies go out like that.
I’m not knocking the hustle, but relying on websites where men you give you money is not a sustainable, long-term strategy for building wealth and creating a stable future. Why would you want to put control of whether you eat or not in the hands of someone else?
I mean, I know this is the Cash App me culture, but at some point we have to be realistic.
Also, the numbers support the fact that you should find another hustle.
There Are More Women Than Men in the US
According to the US Census, there was an estimated population of 327,167,434 in the US in 2018 and of that number 166 million are women and 161 million men. That means there are more women than men so its not realistic for every woman to sit around and wait for a man to give them money.
Additionally, when you break it down by region, 40 out of 50 states have more women than men and I’ll just go out on a limb and guess that most of you aren’t in a rush to move to these ten states, but I could be wrong. The 10 states where men outnumber women are Alaska, North Dakota, Wyoming, Utah, South Dakota, Colorado, Nevada, Idaho, Hawaii, and Montana.
Now if we go one level deeper in the statistics and look at people in the labor force aka people that actually have income, women represent 58.2% of the labor force which equates to 120 million women versus just 86 million men out of the 206 million estimated workers.
So basically you should be looking for websites to give yourself money instead of waiting on a man to give you money.
Black Women Entrepreneurs Are Winning
Black women in particular are the fastest growing segment of entrepreneurs in the country and are really doing their thing. Entrepreneurship is really the move if you want to secure the bag.
Redirect Your Energy for Long-term Domination
I must say though, a lot of people are very creative and strategic in how they plan out their social media posts, apply those filters, work on those poses and/or try to get those cash app payments coming through.
I just wish that more people would focus that energy and genius on long-term thinking. That means thinking beyond IG or the latest hot platform and begin to think about leveraging your own website, app, etc as your foundation so that you don’t have to start from scratch when the hot platform becomes old news and your audience moves on to something else. So if you are getting money in, take those cash app payments or the short term money you’re getting and learn how to flip it and invest it into your own business.
If you’re financially independent, you’ll feel better about yourself, won’t feel helpless and will be a role-model for all of the young women out there.
Build an Audience and Monetize It
For those of you that may have already built an audience on IG or other platforms, you just need to monetize that audience in a way creates building blocks for the future.
