While I have yet to cross that line and consider myself an official Work At Home Mom, there are definitely days when blogging seems like a work at home job of the most pleasant kind. I've toyed with the thought of investing more time into this whole blogging thing and some other things. I could definitely do it, and I do have the passion for it. As the kids get older, it is becoming more and more of an option. Reading Mary Byers' book, Making Work at Home Work, has really cemented this notion for me. Her book is filled with so much wisdom and I truly see working at home as an option for anyone interested. If you've ever considered working from home, or if you already do, I definitely recommend this book. The tips and ideas are invaluable. This is one book that I will be going back to over and over again as a reference source and as a source of encouragement.
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.
About Mary: Mary M. Byers successfully juggles both a freelance corporate writing and speaking business and her responsibilities as a wife and mother of two school-aged children. She is the author of The Mother Load: How to Meet Your Own Needs While Caring for Your Family and How to Say No . . . And Live to Tell about It.
