Format: Paperback
This book lives up to its title. It's a nice introduction to the topic of part-time (weekend) and home-based entrepreneurship, and should be a very helpful guide to anyone who is just starting out and simply needs an easy read with lots of ideas and some business basics. If that's what you're looking for, this book delivers.

As a serial entrepreneur who has started several ventures, both small and large, I really admire individuals who don't have a lot of time on their hands yet are motivated to take the first steps towards some extra cash -- and even the possibility of financial independence. It takes courage, especially for those with a full-time job and family obligations.

This book introduces the concept of part-time entrepreneurship, provides lots of part-time and home-based business ideas, and also some advice about marketing, etc. In some ways, the most valuable part of this book are the ideas that it presents (a page or two dedicated to each concept). Most of the ideas are within the reach of an entrepreneur who doesn't have a lot of start-up capital, and all are achieveable to varying degrees depending on how much time one can dedicate to them. Also, I really like the fact that this book takes the family into consideration and even discusses how to get the kids involved. For a mother or father trying to make a go of an entrepreneurial business after work or on the weekends, involving the kids can make all the difference in the world. It's nice to see this aspect of home-based entrepreneurship addressed.

The bottom line is that this book is for people who are just starting out and interested in a part-time, home-based business. It provides lots of ideas. If you use one of their ideas, great.

This book delivered what was promised. I bought the book Thursday evening and it's already looking a bit used. There was a guy in the section of the book store where this book was supposed to be located. He asked what I was looking for and then he questioned the sense of the title. It's funny how some people take themselves out of the loop of opportunity by making snap judgments.

I like the title. I work during the week and sometimes don't have much energy for other things. So to me, the title is right up my alley. By the time I finished talking about the book he seemed pretty interested too. The book was in a different section and he ended up over there too!

My head is about to explode. I've read several books of this type, but none of them has caused my mind to work the way that this book has. There's something about this book that causes the mind to open up about possibilities that I haven't come across before. Must be the spirit in which it was written.

While the book is written in an easy to read and understand format, it is chock full of information. I need a week off of work just to absorb everything. I read quickly, but I've slowed my pace because I don't want to miss anything.

I've got a few business ideas that I'd like to do some research on and this book gives easy to understand starting points. I like the inserts of extra information and resources that are provided. I could hardly sit still at work. Couldn't wait until break time and lunch so that I could get back to the book.

I just like the book period. I'm getting together with a couple of people this weekend to go over certain sections that deal with things we've wanted to do.

Thanks to you and Jennifer for writing this book!

Jennifer and Michelle write like your long-time good friends who really want your weekend business to succeed. It is inspiring to read by the how to and the real life success stories of others who DO want more money - but not with a business that will take over their live. When I speak to audiences where people are thinking of moonlighting, semi-retiring or becoming self-employed I recommend both this book and Jennifer's "Niche" book. - Kare Anderson, author, SmartPartnering

Who ever has enough money? Let's face it, even Oprah and Bill Gates are still working.

In the Weekend Entrepreneur: 101 Ways to Earn Extra Cash, authors Michelle Anton and Jennifer Basye Sander, TV producers and consummate professionals, have amassed this 234-page compilation of creative, weekend moneymaking ideas. These ideas range from maintenance/repair projects, to face painting, foraging and design.

The book begins with sage advice to look for opportunities that are all around us. Investigate opportunities to fill a need or, after doing adequate research, create a product/service. The authors encourage a conservative approach to business building and offer some inexpensive resources and even step-by-step instructions for beginners.

The pages are filled with many excellent ideas, and Dr. Laura Schlessinger's foreword contributes inspirational, practical insights. She shares how she organized her life so that her family was the priority, while pursuing a side business and cultivating her broadcasting career.

What distinguishes this book from other moneymaking editions is the volume of suggestions and the numerous research resources.

Armchair Interviews says: The real gem is that this book gets us thinking creatively and while earning extra cash, engaging in personal growth opportunities.
