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.
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.
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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
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.
