If you're been thinking about working from home, this is a must-have book. Anything and everything you need to know is included in the pages. There are chapters on setting up a business, marketing, client relations, and how to balance your job with family and friends. The authors also give personal examples from their own life that show the reader how they dealt with issues that came along.
There was so much great information in this book, I wish I'd picked it up sooner! So You Want to be a Work at Home Mom is the perfect place to start to gather information about how to start a home-based carreer, and it's a useful guide to those already working at home who could use some tips to make things work smoother. Highly recommended!

What a neat and useful tool this book is. Many different audiences can benefit from parts of this text for instance if you are like me considering the idea of a home-based business or for others who have already taken the leap. Authors Jill Hart and Diana Ennen kindly and with great tips guide the reader into specifics of what will be needed from a person to run a business from home, various types of businesses. All throughout they focus on faith and family first and talk about the difficulties but the benefits if you are successful. I am entirely grateful that I read this one as it gave me several ideas to file. After much prayer and consideration this is one that I'll come back to, to read some of the chapters with more deliberation and goal focus. I highly recommend this.Was this review helpful?

There were two things that I felt when I read this book. One was "oh I wish I had had this resource when I was starting out 25 years ago" and "oh my, that's a good idea I'll do that next". In otherwords, this book is appropriate for women starting a business or is involved in a successful business but needs some new update ideas. The writing is good, clear, well thought out, easy to understand. The chapters cover everything from how to determine if working at home is for you or just a wish, what kind of businesses are available, and if you have a web site presence, what to do and how to get it noticed, and to have an exit strategy if you need to get out of it. These ladies have successful at-home businesses so they actually know what they are talking about. That makes an enormous difference in the quality of the information and tips. As they point out, men may have great business ideas but they don't understand that you won't get anywhere phoning a woman during nursing time. They point out that it's important to turn off the phone, close the door and have family time. After all, that's why you want to work at home. There's even a page listing things that a home office requires and that buying them when school supplies are on sale is a great idea. As you can tell, I loved the book and gave it 5 stars.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I Also Recommend:
Although I've been a freelance writer and conference speaker for more than 13 years, this book taught me new concepts, ideas, and leads. Of course when I launched my vertical learning curve, the internet and social network sites weren't available. These authors are teaching me with their contemporary knowledge and experience.
All I can say is; wish I would've had this step-by-step guidance when I was starting my home-based business.
If you're wanting to stay home with your children yet contribute to the family income, this book will help you be contented in your decision and a professional mompreneur.
