Let's face it, you're in business to make money and sex sells. I can teach anybody to create an Excel spreadsheet, write a marketing plan and market their product, but I can't make anyone beautiful, charismatic and passionate. If you have those things you have competitive advantage. Use it.
Being a Mom is Sexy
God gave you enlarged mammary glands in exchange for popping out multiple children in quick succession.
Having bigger breasts is definitely an upside to being a mom. Push them up high like Erin Brockavich prepare to do battle. You will have instant mastery over any man as you stand apart from all the drab dark-suits that surround him in the sexless business environment.
If You Got It
You will immediately get a businessman’s attention, and they will grant you any request, including a trip to the Bahamas--which you could probably take if wasn't for those pesky kids of yours--while they stand helplessly mesmerized by your all-powerful feminine assets.
On Wednesday morning I found myself at my local University, in a room full of entrepreneurs eager to get the attention of the one venture capital group, as well as the Angel Investor group, there to give their presentation. There must have been at least a hundred of us and only five of them. I didn’t waste any time.
My SBDC counselor had already given me the names of the key contacts of each group, and had spoken to them in advance about me. The room was a very posh meeting space complete with paneled walls, green leather chairs around huge circular tables and a bar.
I went to the bar and ordered a glass of water; my hand was shaking so much as I picked it up, I had to put it back down again to keep it from spilling.
To my good fortune standing right next to me, ordering a diet cola, was one of the key members of the venture capital panel. “Hi,” I said immediately before I lost my nerve, handing him my business card. “I’m Kim Lavine, President of Green Daisy, Inc., manufacturer of the Wuvit. We’ve done just under two million dollars in retail sales in the last two years on this great product, selling to the nation’s premiere retailers like Saks. I’d love the opportunity to meet with you to discuss our exciting future. Could I please have one of your cards so I can follow-up?”
He obviously didn't know what hit him. I could see in his expression that he was decidedly impressed. It didn’t hurt either that I had a very attractive and feminine business suit on which displayed my secret weapon in this room of buttoned-up collars and drab suits: cleavage.
He, like any man, was powerless to keep from staring as he fished his business card out of his wallet, handing it to me and inviting me to call him.
