If you are looking for a serious tool to assist you with online success this second Mompreneurs book is for you. Whether you are a newbie (there is a wonderful glossary for those of us who need help with our computer terms), have an existing web business, or are hoping to find at home work you will be turning to this book time and again. Ms. Cobe and Ms. Parlapiano have a personal and easy style that makes the book a joy to read. I was very impressed with how complete this book is. They have covered every angle. If working from home is your dream they show you credible online resources, as well as how to spot scams. If you dream of a web business they step you through selecting an idea, to building a site and marketing it to the world. Another area I have found unique to this book is the in-depth information on how to protect your ideas, product and site. Also, I have spent hours going through their Dot.Com Directory: Resource Guide and still haven't visited all of the sites listed! The one last feature that can't go without mention is that through the entire book are examples of women that are making it work. They share their advice and experience freely. It's such an inspiration to go out and visit them all on the web!
