    First of all, I apologize to the women here for using the word bitch. I'm just quoting the movie.

    Okay, so I saw one thread here on BHW about a woman client who's raising hell even after her site was placed on Google's page 1. It made me remember this famous advice from the movie, Boiler Room:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HlTlUfKtXl0

    Which made me think, how accurate is this? Is it really a bad idea to "pitch the bitch"? I think it's bad to generalize. But I think it will be a good idea if we can share our experiences here about doing business with women.

    So share your experiences with dealing with women and give advice if pitching to women is worth it.

    Well it is proven fact from our primordial instincts that women are more social and emotional then men are. In some cases this might turn around and bite you in the ass, but a male client will just as often be very needy and annoying in some cases. So it's not fair to just say women are a problem in this aspect.

    If you're working for someone that is calling you everyday it's easy to make them stop, you just let them know it is unfair for them to be taking so much of your time when you have other clients who are completely content with the work you're doing for them and don't bother you at all. So you can give them an allotted amount of time to get into contact with you each month.

    However I think it is bad business on your end if they're calling you every month, because you're obviously not keeping them up to date with the progress that they are paying you for. So I say look in the mirror if this happens to you and stop blaming the other person.

    hahah. I had one woman boss in my time. Terrible experience. Women in business can get messy because their emotion takes the forefront over their logic and reason at times.

    I've dealt with woman online and offline for years, "don't pitch the bitch" stereotype is wrong.

    I'm going to say it's not worth it.. Just from all the bad experiences I've had with a woman as a boss and working with female clients.

    Now, I have a lot of friends who are women and also smart entrepreneurs that I'd work with in a heartbeat. However, the majority have been miserable <insert expletive> - and it's really difficult to gauge whether or not they will be good to work with from just a couple meetings.

    Annoying, needy, overbearing, psychotic - just a few words that describe almost every woman I've worked with.

    A client fired me with a super emotional email and phone call. I was working 2 days a week onsite (early in my consulting days) and "someone" told her I was moving away, when I was really just taking a 1 week vacation. A vacation which they knew about for over 3 months. Not only did she know, but so did the CEO, accounting/HR people and everyone on my team. And the results I was bringing in were pretty spectacular.. it's not like I was slacking.

    My rule for the past few years has been to AVOID AVOID AVOID all women who will be cutting my cheques.

    /Sorry ladies of BHW, you're probably awesome... but a good portion of your gender really sucks to do business with.

    Old thread I know. It's important to count the context. In the Boiler Room (2000) movie, "don't pitch a bitch" was specifically for stocks BECAUSE stocks have ups and downs like a roller coaster, and it was suggested that women are not cut for such a roller coaster ride typical of the stock market.

    I don't why you can't pitch a bitch for normal trades like when you sell merchandise.
