NEW YORK, NY, May 30, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Wall Street Journal's MarketWatch.com has released a press release that asserts that more women are seeking independent, entrepreneurial jobs than ever before. While the trend of independent employment has grown drastically, due to the shortage of traditional employment options, MBO Partners, a consulting organization, has revealed surprising statistics regarding the role of female workers in this surge in entrepreneurial endeavors. Roxana Mayer, an employment expert, believes this to be a positive trend that answers the needs of both the personal and professional lives of women.
According to the aforementioned press release, 5.7 million women are currently stay-at-home mothers. Another 66.4 million are employed within the general workforce. But 8.5 million are making the unorthodox decision to secure independent employment through more entrepreneurial ventures. In fact, the press release asserts that the majority of independently employed workers are women, who make up 53 percent of this demographic.
Gene Zaino, the CEO of MBO Partners, released the following statement pertaining to these statistics: "The growing trend of independence is a testament to the pioneering spirit of our nation and the enterprising nature of women on a mission. As the country continues to struggle with economic recovery, women have forged a viable third path that empowers them with even greater control and freedom over their lives and careers. It also gives them greater fulfillment and a new definition of work-life success."
Roxana Mayer agrees with this assertion, as she also believes that heightened control over their professional lives has enticed women to join the ranks of independent workers.

"Women may seek a higher level of work satisfaction and flexibility, and control of their own schedule may be particularly compatible with family planning.
