Is there any Truth why Women might be Afraid making Money from home


Unfortunately, I can’t remember where I read this headline. It was years ago and I wondered, even back then, why someone is thinking about the fact, if there is any truth about it, that women are being afraid of making money from home?

I found this totally bogus and actually untrue too. Women are not afraid of anything, they are just a bit more cautious in what they doing. At least this will be the truth for the vast majority.

The difference between Men & Women in the Business world

A man is mostly more aggressive when he wants something and will choose his “weapons” accordingly to get it. I am talking here purely in a metaphorical sense and, by aggressive, I certainly don’t mean beating his way through life or shooting down everything which stands in his way.

Although, these things do happen almost on a daily basis, not only on the streets by gangs but as well in corporations around the globe.

You can stab someone physically in the back and will end up in jail or, you can stab someone in the back and eventually will get the desired promotion/position.

By now, you get the drift what I am saying. No offense though to the male population. 🙂

However, besides the facts that there are women out there who are almost on the same level with their male counterparts by doing anything and everything to get the promotion or, the position of their desire.

The majority of women is, in that regard, still a bit more moderate, almost passive. 

Every Woman chooses her Success

Why is that? I, personally, don’t really know it either but, women are still the more nurturing part of the two genders, using more the right brain hemisphere and, perhaps, have to think about other things too, which is called “multi-tasking” and, therefore, don’t think pure business.

NOTE: Nowadays, and it seems that it is increasing almost on a daily basis, women getting more aggressive, by activating their left brain hemisphere.

Some Quick Information on Both Brain Hemispheres

As you might know, our brain is divided into two hemispheres, the right, and the left hemisphere.

Nevertheless, what are their function and what is their difference? The difference is, that the right hemisphere stands for seeing the bigger picture of everything, looking beyond what is visible to the naked eye, so to speak. It is the part where creativity becomes reality.

Left & Right Brain Hemisphere

Artists like painters, sculptures, musicians and writers have an “overly” active right brain hemisphere. They experience the urge to “constantly create”, which is also in a strong need of being “released” into the world. Being creative can be seen of giving birth on a regular basis.

The left hemisphere stands for the analytical part. A person which uses more the left hemisphere is usually very goal and detail oriented, has strong linear thinking, is very logical in their language or approaches and, therefore, can find “satisfying” solutions to almost any problem and situation.

Where emotional behavior, on the other hand, only will get into their way of finishing the task.

However, our brain will work best when we use both brain hemispheres and, there are some tips which we can use to achieve a more balanced brain function.

  1. Hands-on-activity plus Visualization. The right hemisphere stands for the visual part, however, when we only do that on its own our left hemisphere is not engaged and, by doing so, we need to incorporate both parts of our brain. Like planting a Garden, we do visualize it at first in how it should look like and then take action. This is the part where the left hemisphere comes into the mix to bring the garden into reality.
  2. Learn to Juggle. You keep your eye on the target and at the same time using your hands. This too will help to increase the function to work together on both hemispheres.
  3. Play Games. Playing board games like Checkers or Chess also will strengthen both hemispheres by keeping your eyes on the visual of the board and at the same time analyzing your next possible move.

As you can see these are just a few examples in what you can do to increase the functionality as well to balance both brain hemispheres. Try it out and see what happens.

Never underestimate a Woman

However, whatever a woman’s reason might be to achieve her goal, she too will do everything in her power to get there where she wants to be. Her ways may be a bit curvier than just of being a straight line.

Too many things have to be considered, especially when she is a Mother or the caregiver of a loved one, again, it is called “multi-tasking”.

Whatever a woman’s personal reasons might be, she too can reach her goals and can establish a wonderful and successful career, even from home.

A woman may be not as ruthless when it comes making a career for herself and I am not saying that every man is ruthless, to begin with.

I am saying that there are different approaches, which each gender do prefer to get there where they want to be, as well by choosing their “weapons” to do so.

Women are more cautious because they have to think about other people too. This makes us women still high maintenance multitasker, balancing career, family, household and much more.

multitasking woman

We can’t just afford to be selfish and only stay focused on our careers. Again, some women might be doing it like a man but, most of us are still have to be more considered by choosing our ways and tactics.

  1. First of all a woman can do any kind of job she wants and if she doesn’t want to make money online it’s because she doesn’t, I will say she is been considerate here by letting somethings go,  she loves to make money online but she would rather spend time taking care of the kids and the home, I believe when you saying that women aren’t scared making money online just conscious 

  2. I live in the Washington DC area and right off the top of my head I can think of three women in my neighborhood who started their own businesses and work from home. One is an artist, another is in communications consulting and another in education consulting. All are moms with young children.They do have to leave their homes from time to time for meetings and client visits and the like, but they are genuine entrepreneurs running their own businesses, on their own terms. They actually partly inspired me to do the same. Washington DC has long been a welcoming place for aspiring career women of all types. I’m wondering if you find there are regional differences in that attitude. I’ve been here too long to really know anymore!

    1. Jon, thank you so much for your comment and your experience with the subject matter.

      Yes, I actually do believe that the regional factor, which is also a very strong one and shouldn’t be ignored. I can see that living in a bigger city is easier sometimes to establish one’s new business then living somewhere in the countryside, like myself.

      A city, like Washington DC, certainly has more opportunities like any smaller town or even village. 

      However, it is possible to achieve your goals with the help of an online platform like Wealthy Affiliate. Learning everything you need to start and grow, as well getting in contact with other people who even can help you to go further.

      Everything is possible. 🙂

  3. I had to click on this post when I read the title! Nicely done. My personal opinion is that women, instead of trying to compete or be more “male” with their thinking, should absolutely take full advantage of all the incredible areas where they excel in areas most men don’t. The workplace doesn’t need more male thinking, it needs diverse thinking. Bringing a new point of view is critical to success, and woman are absolutely able to do that by bringing their own experiences to the table. Ultimately, women will get ahead not by trying to male with their thinking, but by embracing their strengths as empowered females. Thanks for the interesting article 🙂

    1. Thank you, Eric, for your comment and your insight.

      I do agree with you that women, the way they are, bring a different flavor to the table.

      However, the “work” society, still dominated by the male energy, is giving women a much harder time. Women, sometimes in corporate positions, have to work 3-5x harder than their male counterparts to get to a higher position or being even recognized. This is certainly not right and has to stop.

      This is why I have written the article to bring more awareness about why women, almost being forced, to activate their left brain hemisphere instead of showing off their uniqueness and their real contribution to the workforce.

  4. I agree, never underestimate a woman!  I think that working from home does appeal to the women.  We can be our own boss with complete control.  I do have a question on the brain hemisphere diagram.  Do you know if you are left handed you use mostly the right side of your brain?  Just curious.

    1. Thank you for the comment and your question, it’s also refreshing to see that other women do see it the same way that women are not afraid of making money.

      To answer your question the answer is Yes. When someone is left-handed the possibility is much higher than that the right brain hemisphere is more active. Without any scientific proof on my part but with lots of friends and, due to my own observation, I can say that all of them are extremely creative in their fields.

  5. Sylvia,
    You make some very good points here. Most women are less assertive than most men (obviously there are many exceptions) and whether this is programmed behavior or just our nature. On the other hand, I think that most women are better multi-taskers and have better people skills. I have been self-employed for the past 25 plus years and find that is what works best for me. I haven’t missed that obnoxious former boss for a second and actually give him credit for giving me the reason to start working for myself. I’ve been able to raise three children while working from home the whole time they were growing up and for me this was huge! Nice article!

    1. Thank you Erica!

      You comment certainly sums it up that every woman can work from home, earning more than enough money to support her loved ones, and can be successful. Yes, I do see it the same way that you have to thank actually your former boss, so you could do this step into self-employment.

      This is certainly very encouraging, appreciated 🙂
