Textual Analysis Project Topic

I intend to explore the organizing of women-owned startups through a textual analysis of the gender-based narrative surrounding strategic business development of “passion-based” businesses. In the last decade, a gender-specific narrative has developed around the “feminine approach” to starting a business. Specifically, I will focus on MarieForleo.com, a business coaching organization built on the use of non-traditional marketing language and video, targeting women with the core brand message “Rich, Hot, and Happy.” I will do an ideological analysis through the lens of feminist criticism of Forleo’s written and visual “texts” used in marketing of business services that focuses on the story of women-owned business.
