I am a pink-collar worker who is seeking financial independence. I am not expecting a windfall of money, so follow me while I seek out my own future.
What does Pink Collar mean?
“Pink–collar worker is one who is employed in a job that is traditionally considered to be women’s work. The term pink–collar worker was used to distinguish female-orientated jobs from the blue-collar worker, a worker in manual labor, and the white-collar worker, a professional or educated worker in office positions.”

Why Pink Collar To Fire?
If you look into pink collar employment, these are jobs traditionally executed by women. It can be a nurse, a teacher, a nanny, a secretary, a waitress or stewardess, or any other job that is usually filled by women, and are often roles of servitude.
Over time, women are seeking careers in traditional male-oriented fields, men are doing the same in traditional female-oriented fields. This is a good thing, but there are still many who expect to see women in a “female role” and men in a “male role”.
It’s tempting to rant about the inequalities of roles, privilege and advantages, I would rather welcome you to my story.
I am a pink-collar worker who is seeking financial independence.
Even though I have a long way to go. Even though I am not making six figures. Despite the fact it will be difficult to pay off the debt I have.
I am still striving for a time in my life where I will be financially independent.
Please follow my story, and I will continue to share my tales with you.
I would love to hear what journey you are on!
