This book is more about feel good stories of people who started a business and they liked what they were doing. If you liked Chicken Soup for the Soul, you will probably like this. I was looking for a book to give some ideas of what good businesses someone could do part-time and make some extra money. These stories covered various set up costs and barely gave an idea of what is needed. The book basically sums up to be: Find out what you like and make a plan. If you already figured that out, don't buy the book.

Format: Paperback
The profiles contained within this book are enjoyable reads, but the information is simply not comprehensive enough to be of real value.

For instance, a proofreader is profiled - she proofreads manuscripts for major publishing houses, including bestsellers. The odds of landing this type of work, unless you have an "in" (you used to be in publishing, for instance) are nearly impossible. While it's understandable that the author wants to sound optimistic, the simplicity of some of her advice is misleading.

Another woman profiled is an attorney, who obviously has the contacts from her working days that bring her work to do at home, as well as the ability to offer a service that is in demand. The average SAHM doesn't have a law degree, and can't just run out and get one.

The truth is, if you don't have work experience or a formidable skill that somehow make you in-demand, this book will do you no good. If you do have the experience or skill, then what you need is a book on marketing your services...simply posting flyers, as suggested in the book, is not going to lead you to 30,50, 80K a year!

If you just want to make money while you're home with your child, but have no real skills or experience, then try selling on ebay or having merchandise parties in your home. If it were so easy for people to make tens of thousands out of their homes every year, everybody would be doing it.

Very little info of what is needed to start a business. This book basically told stories of people who started a business and how they liked what they were doing. More on the lines of Chicken Soup for the Soul. The stories covered various set up costs but hardly gave any ideas of what is needed to start a business.

Has your search for a home business led you to claims like these?

MAKE MONEY WHILE YOU SLEEP!!!!

I MAKE $10,000 A WEEK WATCHING SOAP OPERAS!!!!

Or, on the other end of the spectrum, home business experts will tell you that to be successful, you must sacrifice everything for the sake of your business, and concentrate all your energy on the business. Do this or you're doomed to failure. "There must be some middle ground", you think, "something for a woman who wants to stay home with her children, but still make some money."

If this describes your search, the "Stay at Home Moms' Guide to Making Money - How to Create the Business That's Right for You Using the Skills and Interests You Already Have" by Liz Folger is what you've been looking for. This book is written for the woman who puts her children first, and is dedicated to her role as mother, but would still like to work from home. Liz Folger guides you through the process of finding a business, getting started, and dealing with the challenges of combining business and family. She then goes on to profile 29 moms and their home businesses. Reading these profiles is like sitting down for coffee and a chat with a girlfriend. The moms are honest about the mistakes they've made along the way, and they also tell how they manage to "do it all."

No, it's not easy, and it's not for everyone. But if you're thinking about working from home while raising your own children, "The Stay at Home Moms' Guide to Making Money" is an excellent place to start.

The Stay-At-Home Mom's Guide to Making Money is
a great resource for mothers who desire to make
money at home. Liz Folger effectively addresses
the unique needs of stay-at-home mothers and
their ability to run home businesses. This book
highlights the reality of working at
home, warns of potential home business scams and
lays out the basic elements necessary for moms to
earn money from home. Moms will be
especially enlightened by the individual
interviews with home-working mothers, which
illustrate how they started, their earning
potential and their recommendations for other moms.

Format: Paperback
I recently purchased Liz Folger's book "The Stay at Home Mom's Guide to Making Money" from Amazon.com. It's the second book that I've bought on the home based business subject. Since then I have read several more books. "The Stay at Home Mom's Guide to Making Money" book did what the others promised, yet couldn't. I read the whole book in two days! I am not a mommy yet, but am planning to be soon. I am looking into home businesses now, so I can be prepared when I have children. I wasn't sure what I wanted to do as a home business, but now my husband and I are thinking of starting our own home based computer consulting business. I would like to thank Liz Folger for putting out such an informative and thought provoking book. It really makes you think about the real reasons to get into a home-based business and the realities that you are likely to face. Of all the books that I have read, "The Stay at Home Mom's Guide to Making Money" was the only one with an actual BUSINESS PLAN! Liz Folger also encourages family values - where nowadays they aren't much "valued". She and the moms profiled show that through hard work and perseverance, one can have it all -Husband, children, career, self-esteem, confidence, and most of all happiness. I will always look out for new books authored by Liz Folger. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking to start a home business.
