The Most Woman-Friendly Franchises

Photo Courtesy morgueFile.comIn many ways, this is still a man's world. Men are still in the executive suites at substantially more major companies than women. The average man's net worth is still greater than that of the average woman's. And even when you want to start a franchise, most are more geared toward a traditionally male view point. So what is an ambitious, go to woman to do, then? Start a more woman friendly franchise, that's what!

While they are a bit rarer, there are a ton of woman friendly companies out there, and many are willing to sell you a franchise (and train you in its operation). So forget the glass ceiling—or better yet, take a big, pink hammer and smash it into a million pieces. The following are just a few of the myriad franchise opportunities that are built to suit YOU.

Do you like to work out? Do you like to coach people, and help people to become better and healthier versions of themselves? If you answered yes to those questions, you just might have the passion it takes to become a Rosemary Conley Diet and Fitness Club franchisee. Rosemary Conley's franchising teaches you to become a health and fitness coach, where you teach fitness classes and help people to "exercise" better nutritional judgment. All in all, you get paid to help people on YOUR schedule.

If exercise is not your thing, there are tons of other options. Are you good with relationship building? Do you like to see businesses become more successful? A franchise with Blue Coast Savings Consultants allows you to offer a suite of 20 different no-risk, no-cost financial services to a huge range of businesses. You can help yourself by helping others! Nothing wrong with that! Or maybe financial services are not quite your thing

Do you love to give great customer service, and help women (and even men) to look and feel their absolute best? A European Wax Center franchise opens up doors to being a provider of all manner of wax services. Nobody likes to wax themselves, but the results are hard to ignore. So let them come to you and your employees, and provide professional waxes with the training and experience the European Wax Center can offer you.

Who says the economy is stagnant? If you have a can do attitude, a franchise in Protingent Staffing may be right up your alley. As a Protingent franchisee, you have the opportunity to assist top tier engineering talent to be matched up with the companies who need them the most. You get to help companies change the world, one engineering challenge at a time.

Maybe you like the idea of helping companies to advertise, but have no interest in making all sorts of cold calls. You can take on an Advertising Consultants franchise, and get the best of both worlds!

Are You Ready for Some Flowers?!

Photo Courtesy morgueFileHey, guys... if you've been planning on that great Super Bowl party tomorrow, and you've put all the work off on your loving, better half, you know there is no better way to show your appreciation than with some beautiful flowers just for her!

Sure, we women love taking care of our families. And we love entertaining. Shopping, preparing the food, decorating, setting the table, keeping the drinks iced and the kids occupied... and most of us don't complain too much.

But a little appreciation is a nice thing. So give it a try. Order a simple bouquet of flowers for your sweetie. You could just make her day... which you know will make yours even better!

Affordably Chic and Sexy Eyeglasses

Photo courtesy morgueFileWho would have ever thought that eyeglasses could be considered sexy? I know I didn't and I definitely never thought that I would actually look forward to getting new glasses!

Ever since I was diagnosed with vision problems, it has been a source of stress for me. In school, it was not an attractive accessory to have to wear glasses unless they were a cool pair of Ray Bans. Remember the old saying, "guys don't make passes at girls who wear glasses"? Ugh!

Present day eyeglasses have changed so much, though! They've become much more fashionable and there are more than a few people guilty of even wearing phony reading glasses just because they're cute. But who can blame them?

Although eyeglasses are fashionable and even chic, they don't have to come with a hefty price tag when you visit my favorite site to buy glasses -!

I found the cutest frames there, and at an awesome price. I was even able to buy multiple pairs... a cute pair, a sensible pair, and even an ultra sexy pair! Not to mention my prescription sunglasses.

Having bad eyesight is no longer a stigma for me or for my bank account. Thanks!
