3 Habits Women Are Taking Over From the Guys
It’s time to set the record straight, being married is not synonymous with being dependent on another human being. Yes, it’s nice to think of our partners as supportive and wanting what’s best for us, but the truth is, we are as independent as we were before they placed the proverbial “ring on it.”
Recent stats show more and more women are taking on the role of DIYer, fixer and all-around handyman or in this case woman when it comes to tasks previously defined as a “man’s” area.
Join us as we discuss some everyday jobs, we as smart, capable women can tackle just as easily as our partners.
Maybe you love the idea of popping the hood of your trusty truck and changing the oil, or can name every model of your favorite car maker out there. While it’s true that the majority of auto mechanics are men, many women are proficient in handling their car maintenance. Like YouTube star Jessica Chou, whose entire channel is dedicated to showing females how to complete basic automotive care on their vehicles.
Another option: attend a basic automotive car care class. These are offered all over the country and led by current or retired mechanics. Topics covered usually include everything from how to change your wiper blades to how to check your belts and fuses.
Keeping Your Home Safe
As women, we’re naturally resourceful, and this can translate into great researching skills. Skills that can serve an important purpose especially when it comes to protecting our home front.
Looking for an easy, cost-effective way to keep your home secure? Finding a home security system just might be the answer. Systems such as Lorex Technology security camera systems are perfect for those wanting easy, hassle-free installation and maximum home security options.
Typical systems include everything you need to monitor your home, yard, or garage even while away, right from your smartphone. And they’re easy to install. With these kinds of benefits, plus a possible reduction on insurance premiums, it’s hard to see why anyone wouldn’t want the protection a home security system offers.
That’s right, women are more likely to flex their side hustle muscle than their male counterparts. The list of why women want to make extra cash is long, but mostly boils down to providing a better life for themselves and their families. Top reasons include bridging the gender wage gap, financial security and increasing savings.
How are these hustler ladies pulling in the money? Think everything from Lyft, Uber, caring for pets, temp jobs, freelancing, teaching private lessons and serving food at their local restaurants. Other women are taking a more modern approach to the side hustle, and instead of pedaling say, Avon, they’ve jumped in on selling more social media-friendly products.
While there are many more habits ladies can do just like their husbands, these three should get you thinking about what your strengths are and if there are more interests of yours waiting to be discovered.
