Have you been looking to jump ship but not yet found a shop well-suited to your needs and interests? Have you considered becoming a "model-mule"? It's a booming field and you should get in when there are still openings available.

Sexy and daring women are appearing on most-wanted lists in the United States, Mexico and Colombia or are awaiting trial on charges of trafficking large quantities of cocaine. In some cases, these were women leading a lives of luxury and tranquility who suddenly found themselves forced to assume the day-to-day tasks of a narcotrafficking organization after the deaths or arrests of their husbands or brothers.

In other instances, the women gradually earned the respect of drug traffickers, often after showing an aptitude for financial management and money laundering, a former Colombian drug lord explained.

Jeaneth Sanclemente Valencia, a "dethroned Colombian beauty queen and lingerie model" who "leads a band of beautiful women who transport cocaine from Buenos Aires into several European countries" runs a great enterprise but is currently attempting to keep a very low profile. Still, if you're really interested, there are other ways to get a foot in the door, like networking events.

Some of the women who have entered the world of narcotrafficking have done so via beauty pageants in Colombia, where such competitions are held weekly. The pageants attract dozens of drug dealers willing to finance the expenses of the contestants.
