One of the things we noticed at Mark Victor Hansen’s Mega Speaking Event was that only one presenter was a woman. Denise and I agree with Kathleen Gage that there is something missing when Internet marketing gurus, top speakers, and other experts are all men.
One of the participants approached me in the hall and asked why there weren’t other women presenting. My response, "And why isn’t there more emphasis on publishing a blog for marketing?" Blogs are one of the best ways for speakers and writers to get known, it’s a well-known fact.
It could be that although most of the presenters themselves have blogs, upon investigation The Blog Squad finds them in need of updating. Perhaps these super stars of the podium don’t have time, or don’t understand that for 20 minutes a day you get big results.
Street Smart Kathleen Gage agrees (pictured above with Denise and I): This conference needs more women and needs to teach more about how use blogs to grow business. Kathleen knows how to make money online and off. And she shares her knowledge generously with others, men and women.
She’s written a great (and free) ebook called The Truth: the truth about making money on the Internet.
