Who Should Order Up this Book?
Calling all Moms!!! If you're craving to stay at home with your little bundles of joy, and still contribute to the family coffers, this book's for you! It's right up the ally for those stay-at-home moms looking for solid home biz ideas. And it's for any working mom who wants to quit her 9 to 5 job to take up residence with her kids...and still bring home the bacon. If you're waffling on whether or not to take the home biz plunge, getting this book might be the feed you need!

The Meat & Potatoes:
Liz Folger, a savvy work-at-home mom guru, serves up solid advice on how you can find the biz that's right for you. Her mom-oriented guide encourages you to find your own biz niche using your own skills and interests. No pie-in-the-sky biz opps to wade thru! Hear her secrets for finding that delicate balance between legitimate at-home work and quality time with the kids.

In Chapter One, Liz goes right to the heart of the matter when she discusses the pros and cons of taking on a home business.

Part I, Home Business Basics, is a beefy section with a dozen chapters. Liz chats about how to find the perfect biz idea, setting the biz up, writing a biz plan, being a legal eagle, and managing all your home, family, and biz fires...without getting burnt! The chapter on how to avoid scams will keep you out of hot water. And unlike most home-based biz books, Liz has chapters on mom-oriented topics -- like how "staying healthy" can relieve stresses and energize frazzled biz moms and how "getting online" can open doors for you.

About halfway thru this main course, Liz switches entrees and serves up a smorgasbord of home business stories in Part II, Home Business Profiles. Other moms -- just like you -- tell why they started their particular home businesses. They dish out info on their backgrounds, skills, equipment needed, marketing, and their tips for running a home biz. More than 25 moms provide info on various home biz ideas, including being a day-care provider, tutor, freelance editor/writer, floral designer, attorney, pet-sitter, and professional organizer. The list goes on! You can really butter your biz bread in this section.

Overall Taste:
This is delicious reading for many moms!
