Lynn Pierce, creator of the Women’s Business Empowerment Summit, has agreed to a SmartWoman Guides exclusive 60 minute tele-seminar event on Wednesday, June 25th at 5:00 PM PST.

Lynn will be discussing how she created the Women’s Business Empowerment Summit and what the theme and focus will be for this year’s event. She’ll be telling us about her 7 step approach to turning your passion and expertise into cash. She’ll be giving us her unique perspective about effective product creation, and share with us some very convincing statistics about why women fail and succeed in business.

There is no enrollment fee for this teleseminar. The only cost to you, beyond your time investment, is the personal phone fees you normally would pay when you call long distance. All you have to do is sign up below and then show up on the phone line at 5:00 PM PST on Wednesday, June 25th.

BREAKING NEWS! Win a 3-day entrepreneur conference ticket! Announcement scheduled for Friday June 13th!

PLEASE NOTE: You will need to go to the self-hosted version of SmartWomanGuides to sign up. I didn’t want this great opportunity to be lost to the wordpress.com audience, so I am also posting it here.

Kiss those superstitions about Friday the 13th being unlucky goodbye! Friday may be the luckiest day in your month!

Today I received final confirmation that I have been gifted several free scholarships (value $1497 each) for an upcoming 3-day Female Empowerment and Education Conference. I will be giving these scholarships away and also unveiling an amazing SmartWoman exclusive offer to receive deeply discounted tuition if you buy at our website.

Why did this website receive these great gifts? Apparently our community is getting noticed! SmartWoman Guides is one of only 5 female entrepreneur support sites that are being gifted these scholarships. We are being recognized as a source of inspiration and support for women and the conference creator want our community to be rewarded for what we do. How cool is that, right?

The countdown has begun. Mark this site and return to us on Friday at 10 AM CST. The full details will be launched at that time. We have to confirm the winners by July 1st, so this will be a whirlwind. It won’t be hard and some very deserving and wonderful women will be going for 3 days of education, networking, and fun.

In the meantime, I want you to gather together your best, most passionate and thoughtful response to the following question (hint: it’s how the winners will get picked…)

The entry question: What inspires you to be an entrepreneur?

Okay, be sure to come back on Friday and get the full details. I can’t wait! 🙂

SmartWoman Goal List for June

Sometimes you have to make your commitments out loud, to an audience of supportive people, to make their outcome real. My goal with today’s post is to review our first month together and make my commitments to you for the upcoming month.

In our first month, over 1300 people have visited SmartWoman Guides!  I had my first interview and also had the pleasure of interviewing Chris Brown about being a female entrepreneur. I’d like to double our number of visitors in June, so would you help me spread the word? It would be much appreciated. The more, the merrier, right?

For June, I already have two exclusive interviews scheduled with some heavy weight entrepreneurs (I’m keeping their names a surprise until reveal day!). My goal is at least 4 interviews this month. If you know someone who would be inspiring to our audience, and/or if you’d like to be presented here, please contact me.

At this point, our community here has been visited by women in the United States, Russia, Korea, Japan, the UK, Taiwan, Canada, Australia, Austria, and Germany. My goal is to facilitate an international community so I wholeheartedly welcome the women around the world who have joined us here. Thank you for visiting.

For June, I’d like to add 10 more countries. I intend to add an international post weekly and am looking for female ambassadors from every country who could report to us on her country’s progress in supporting the goals of women entrepreneurs. Is that you? If so, please contact me.

In May, I provided the 50 Female Resource Sites listing, the Emerging Woman Entrepreneur’s Top 10 Questions to Ask (and Answer) Workbook, and a free Your Internet Cash Machine book sampler from Joe Vitale and Jillian Coleman Wheeler.

In June, I will provide more free resources and training, at least one write-up per week. I will also be adding more free articles, at least 3 per week and I will continue to recommend great websites every week. Please contact me with the specific types of help you need, as it’s important to me to give you what you need the most.

In June, I will begin releasing a weekly newsletter. It will include special bonuses and product reviews that give you a deeper look at the resources available to you as a female entrepreneur.

I am developing a Web Traffic 101 Study Course, a beginner’s guide to creating web traffic and I’ll be adding free monthly teleseminars so you get the chance to talk with me live with your questions and issues. I will announce the first teleseminar date later this week.

Thank you to all of you who have made me feel so welcome. As always, I am available if you need me.

Together, we are stronger.

p.s. Watch for an upcoming Female Entrepreneur Makeover contest as well…do you know anyone who could use that? If so, keep your eyes peeled for the details!

How Does Your “About Me” Page Look?

As a new blogger, it seems I learn about 5 new things a day. If it’s not technical programming lessons, it’s user interfacing, or copywriting blunders to be corrected. It never seems to end.

The most surprising thing I’ve learned in my first month of blogging is the importance of my “About Me” page.

My “About Me” page was the most visited page on my entire blog. Second only to my 50 Female Entrepreneur Resource Sites (which was picked up for huge distribution by many sites), more people went to check out who I am than visited anywhere else. These visitors had to deliberately click on this page, too–it’s not like they were directed to it automatically by going to my home page. And, they did click–up to 1000% more than other pages! I am guessing, if you also monitor which pages people visit the most (and you should be tracking that), you would find a similar trend.

Why is this? Because people care about the human being running the show! And, that’s not surprising really, if we think about it a minute. I want to know the owner of the businesses I deal with. I find it important to get to know my neighbors. I am interested in other people’s points of view. And, the more I get to know someone, the more I want to know them.

So, what does this mean to us as female entrepreneurs? As women, sometimes we tend to hide or imagine that no one really wants to know our story. As marketers of our businesses, we have to understand that story is what people want in order to buy. Rapport and trust are the cornerstones of client loyalty. Clients need it in order to make a connection and move forward in their relationship with us.  If we are sincere in wanting to provide the best service in the best way, we are obliged to provide that honest story.

So, I want you to go right now and look at your “About Me” page. Does your “About Me” page demonstrate your personality? Is it easy to find on your home page? Does it provide a way for people to contact you? Does it give people a sense of who you are and what you stand for? Or, is it just another pitch about your business and products? Do you even know how many people visit it? If not, why not?

These are questions worth answering today. The more we take the opportunity to let people into our perspective, the better off our lives and our businesses will be. I urge you to take the time to work on your “About Me” page so you can enjoy the trust and rapport and results you deserve.

Together, we are stronger.

Get Your Free Internet Marketing Book Sampler: SmartWoman Parties with Joe Vitale!

NOTE: For those of you with limited time and no desire for the back story, you can go straight to the sign up page by clicking here: Your Internet Cash Machine Book Sampler

Don’t be in such a hurry that you cheat yourself out of the free bonuses info though–read below! It won’t take long and it will be worth it! 🙂

For those of you with a minute or two on your hands:

Even though he’s a mega-star of metaphysics now, Joe Vitale, one of the stars of The Secretis one of my original marketing gurus from way back. He’s a really interesting guy and I got to go to his birthday party late last year. The picture above captured the moment (that’s me in the middle!)

He and Jillian Coleman Wheeler co-authored a book about using the internet to build a business, called Your Internet Cash Machine: The Insiders Guide to Making Big Money, Fast!

I worked with Jillian on the book release and can say unequivocally that it is full of great stuff–very practical and relevant, not empty hype and pushy tactics. And, it’s usable on several different business models.

During the book launch marketing process, I helped Jillian create a sampler taken directly from Your Internet Cash Machine and have convinced her to let me offer it here to my readers.

The sampler has enough good ideas in it that you should be able to benefit just reading that alone; that’s how we designed it to be–a true sample of the work, not just teaser material.  You will need to provide your email when you request the sampler so the link can be sent to you directly.

To sign up for your copy of the Your Internet Cash Machine book sampler, click below:
Your Internet Cash Machine Book Sampler

I have also secured permission from Jillian to allow you to visit the purchase bonus page that was originally used for the launch. There you will find literally thousands of dollars of related stuff that you will get to download for free by providing your email and Amazon receipt number.

Here’s how to claim the purchase bonuses:

  1. Purchase the book at Amazon or your preferred book seller.
  2. Next, go to the bonus website and enter your name and receipt  #.
  3. Enjoy your bounty and claim your bonuses!

I signed up for the bonuses and enjoyed them. I can say first hand that I did not get spammed with useless stuff once I did. But, you will have to decide for yourself the tolerance you have for communication with new businesses and their information.

All the bonuses include a good description, so you can opt-in to some and not others (which I confess, I also did–not all of them appealed to me). I have not had any problem later opting-out of various emails too. A very good experience overall.

So, have fun! At least get the Sampler–it’s a good read.

Together, we are stronger.
Vicki Flaugher, the original SmartWoman

p.s. Darn, that’s a good looking launch page, if I say so myself! 🙂
