Did You Know...
« on: April 11, 2014, 12:54:58 AM »
I think it would be fun to have a trivia thread that is relevant to women, finance, cryptos, and of course girl power.  I will start it off with:

Did you know that women are responsible for around $20 TRILLION in consumer spending annually.

I found this little tidbit on Forbes
"Women have been starting businesses at a higher rate than men for the last 20 years and tend to create home-based micro (less than 5 employees) and small businesses."

Did you know that in October, 2009 you could by 1300 Bitcoin for $1?

Did you know that in April, 2014 you could buy anywhere from 900 - 1700 DNotes for $1?

"Each woman spends on average, 8.5 years of her life shopping. And 60% of online shopping is done by women."

Personally, I hate shopping - it is one of the few things I'd happily pay someone else to do! Does that count as "shopping"?

I'm with you MagStar.  I hate shopping.  I do any shopping I "have" to do online because it is the most efficient way to get in and get out without dealing with salespeople, long check out lines or other shopping headaches (traffic, parking, other people).

I just wish that I could buy my perishable groceries on line (milk, eggs, yogurt) and never have to go to a grocery store.  It is such a mind and energy suck.

I love this thread.  I will be adding some more stuff tomorrow.

Did you know that more US Women Prefer Handbag-sized Dogs To Babies?

Data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention show that a big drop in the number of babies born to women ages 15 to 29 corresponds with a huge increase in the number of tiny pooches owned by young US women, reports the business-news site Quartz.

The federal data behind the report show that over the past seven years, the number of live births per 1,000 women between ages 15 and 29 in America has plunged 9 percent.

At the same time, research by the American Pet Products Association shows the number of small dogs — under 25 pounds — in the United States has skyrocketed, from 34. 1 million in 2008 to 40.8 million in 2012.

“Women are not only having fewer children but are also getting married later. There are more single and unmarried women in their late 20s and early 30s, which also happens to be the demographic that buys the most small dogs,” market researcher Damian Shore told Quartz.

Asked if he thought the drop in baby births and the rise in puppy ownership was a coincidence or if women these days were really making dogs their little bundles of joy, Shore said, “There’s definitely some replacement happening there.”

In 1955, Hetty Green Wilks, the richest woman in the world, passed away leaving an estate worth $95 million.  Her will was found in a tin box with 4 pieces of soap.  I think it's safe to say that she didn't like shopping either!

P.S.  Add me to the "I Hate Shopping Club"

You are right Chase about Hetty Green not liking to shop.  In the book - The Rich And How They Got That Way - author Cynthia Crossen - said on page XXV that Hetty was "rebuked widely for not spending her millions.  Green had little interest in the variety of material goods that money can buy."  Instead she "used her money to manipulate the world, like a god pulling levers."

BTW in The Rich And How They Got That Way the ONLY profile of a wealthy person NOT male was Hetty Green.  :-)

Did you know that children come to us as babies because if they came to us as teenagers, we'd probably send them back!

More women are taking the reins on their finances, holding 60 percent of all personal wealth and 51 percent of all stocks in the U.S., according to Virginia Tech.

In the office, 1.3 million are cashing in a cool $100,000-plus annually and running 40 percent of all private American businesses, according to marketing site She-conomy.

At home, the majority of women (90 percent) still control the family's purse strings, from stocking up on household items to having the final say on home and car purchases and health care.

According to Forbes Magazine the best way to spend a c-note on January 1, 2013 was on competing cryptocurrency Litecoin.  Worth seven cents then, its value increased along with Bitcoin’s, reaching $23 by December, or 328 times its initial value. That means a $100 investment in Litecoin last year would be worth $30,000 now.

I'm relieved to know that I'm not alone in my hatred of shopping, and I have to add that I'm not a fan of little dogs either. I mean they're cute and all, but to me, a dog should be a companion, an alarm system AND a form of protection. A teacup Pekingese isn't going to do much intimidating - and it's likely to make me insane with all the yippy barking!

On another women/pet note "Cats respond better to women than to men, probably due to the fact that women's voices have a higher pitch." Hmm, more yippy 'barking'? :)

Did you know that Pinterest is dominated by women and social media in general except for LinkedIn.

According to Inc Magazine - April 2014 - online baby product sales - of which women are the primary buyers - is expected to surpass $8 billion dollars within the next 2 years.

Revenue in the online baby products niche has consistently grown 15 percent annually for the past five years.

Baby apparel along is expected to ring up $6 billion in e-tails for 2014 alone.

By 2018 there will be more than 6,000 baby product e-tailers with women owned businesses dominating some sectors of the baby product niche.

Pretty cool.
