    more from this reviewer

    If you want to be a successful teleworker, read this now!

    Delivers even more than expected! In addition to detailed descriptions of actual telework jobs that are interesting and appealing (as opposed to all those MindlessTypingForLittlePay.com types of 'jobs' out there), the authors describe how best to format a resume using the most useful keywords so that webcrawlers will be more likely to find it. By adding keywords into the HTML on my small business' website and listing myself on a single social networking site, I was able to move from non-existent on Google's search to items #2 and #3 on page 1 in less than one week! I can't wait to list myself on the freelance sites, so I can see what happens! Thanks so much for all the usable info!!

    Finally, a good book about working from home

    Why is it that so much of what's written about working from home is junk. Until reading Undress For Success, the books I've read on the topic (and I'm pretty sure I've tried them all) fall into two categories. Either they're a bunch of useless lists of home business ideas mashed together with the text from author's other small business books, or they profile a handful business ideas like pet sitting, cake decorating, party planning, etc.

    What I've been looking for and what I found in this book is real hands-on advice about how and where to find a work from home job or start a home-based business doing freelance work or selling a product.

    The authors warn of the many scams out there (yeah, I've been scammed a few times) and offer tips for how to spot them and even how to get even if you are scammed.

    Their web site at UndressForSuccessOnline.com includes a bunch of book-buyer extras like links to home-based job openings, samples of how to pitch a work at home arrangement to your boss, and lots of other good stuff.

    These guys got it right.
