So many capable women are discouraged

Lately I’ve had a lot of conversations with women who are done. Their jobs are bleak, desolate places where the pay is scant, the demands are ratcheting up, confusion reigns, and the wrong things seem to be driving everything.

These are smart, capable, brilliant women who — if I were managing a staff — I would hire in an instant. 

How is it, I keep wondering, that these talented people feel so discouraged and lost? And what can we do about it?

I believe the amazing, brilliant, capable, ethical women I know will make the internet world a better place

This is what Z Seekers is about for me. 

I know the online marketing world has a pretty sleazy reputation… well-deserved, if you ask me. Sometimes when I spend time in internet marketing circles I get that creepy feeling, like I’m suddenly at the frat house basement party, wondering if my missing friend is okay. It feels slimy and selfish and greedy, and like no one is safe.

But there are other people among the internet who are classy, ethical, brilliant, and creative. And profitable. I know some of those people. I only work with these people. They give me hope and a lot of inspiration.

Another thing I’ve noticed is that the online business world is mostly made up of men.

Now, men are great. At least the men I know. Really great, and I’m privileged to know them. 

But it’s my particular interest to bring more women into the internet marketing world, because I want women to benefit from this frontier as well, and because I believe the amazing, brilliant, capable, ethical women I know will make the internet world a better place. 

I hope you will join us.
