Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
More women than men start new businesses annually, since women enjoy the flexibility and ease of child care that working at home provides. Huff, a business journalist and author (Home-Based Business Ideas for Women, Pilot, 1993), enumerates 101 business opportunities to women found in traditional areas. Each listing includes information on start-up costs and financing sources, pricing guidelines, marketing methods, equipment, necessary education/training or experience, income potential, and information sources. Huff begins the book with short sections on selecting a business, developing a business plan, and understanding franchises and distributorship. While this title is informative, numerous recent books are available on this topic, from Lionel Fisher's On Your Own (LJ 1/95) to Daryl Allen's 1101 Businesses You Can Start from Home (Wiley, 1995). A marginal purchase for those public libraries with an adequate collection in this area.-Kathy Shimpock-Vieweg, O'Connor-Cavanagh Lib., Phoenix, Ariz.

Before listing the best options by service category, she discusses vital business selection and start-up factors. Includes further information resources.
