What I Thought:
An essential book for anyone (man or woman!) working from home. It covers topics that I hadn't even considered before, like how to keep your sanity when juggling the responsibilities of your business, home, and children. Now that my husband has read it, he is much more knowledgeable about what I will be doing and how to support me through the process.
About the book:
Making Work at Home Work shows moms how to develop an entrepreneurial mind-set without sacrificing their families. It covers important topics such as developing a successful business philosophy, balancing time between work and family, setting realistic goals, and handling the challenges of being both "Mommy" and "CEO" while running a profitable home-based business.
In addition to including her own experiences, author Mary Byers profiles real moms with home-based businesses who offer their hard-won advice.
