Format: Paperback
Odimegwu draws on her own experience as a Work at Home Mom--including learning from her mistakes--to create a practical guide for anyone considering adopting a flexible work situation in order to spend more time with the kids. Dads, too, can benefit from her model.

Practical tips abound, as Odimegwu offers tips like shedding the PJs and dressing for business to help your family understand that you mean business; creating a workspace of your own, even if it's a desk in the corner of the family room; and evaluating your own passions to discover their potential to produce income.

As the author points out, isolation can be a big problem for Work at Home Moms. Along with the networking suggestions she presents, the companion website [...] is a great resource.

As a Work at Home Mom with an already established business as a writing coach, I discovered some welcome reminders in the book, as well as new suggestions for making my career more fruitful. Reading it was definitely energizing!

If you are planning to set out as a work at home Mom (WAHM), then this is a must read. Very brief and to the point. This will point you in the right direction. I call this Mompreneur 101.

As a Dad who works at home part time, I read this book because I believe I could learn a thing or two, and I did. Pamela has been there and done it. Pamela's to do list comes in handy to make sure all bases are covered. What a WAHM can do gives you ideas. Good one Pam.

I found this book to be a solid source of general information. She provides lots of realistic, evenhanded advice about working from home like considering child care, drafting a business plan, and sticking to a set of real office hours. I wish she she would have provided more information on the types of jobs available to mompreneurs, but the author said that that information was, perhaps, for another book. There were also a number of typographical errors, but they didn't take away from the overall meaning of the book.

All in all, I found the book to be a solid resource.

"How to Become a Successful Work at Home Mom" is quite detailed, and discusses issues such as things to think about, prior to becoming a work at home mom, like finances. The book really itemizes what a prospective Mompreneur needs to consider in advance. "How to Become a Successful Work at Home Mom" discusses key issues that should be thought about prior to taking the plunge, like, do you have the personality to resist the temptations that you will surely meet while working from home. Are you financially prepared to deal with the time it takes to generate a consistent income? Have you considered start-up costs? Calculating your family budget, and recognizing the impact your working at home will have. Something that I had not thought about was having a family discussion, and what this conversation should entail, an excellent consideration.

The author offered a surprise that requires that you contact her to receive. It was really cool!

Time management is another consideration. I have to say, there are some great tips that I had not even considered to make your entire day work out perfectly. The author discusses the good, the bad and the ugly about being a WAHM, which most authors simply gloss over or ignore completely. She particularly delves into the negatives many fail to consider. The book is a thorough guide to aid work at home moms make the decision to transition to Mompreneurs.

What was most important for me was that the author offers an opportunity to join a community of Moms, and with the information that she provides in her book, I knew that I would find a safe haven.

This book is written more towards women who have a degree and an established career and are looking to start a business of their own. This book even has a section on day care for your children which to me defeats the purpose of the book. If you are looking for jobs you can do from home and not to form your own company this is not the book you are looking for.

If you are looking for a book that will make your home business attempts more successful, this is not it. If you think maybe someday you might consider working from home, this book will give a very generalized idea of what to expect. Of course, that same information is available on many websites already. Information is always already out there, but usually you have to hunt it down from many different sites. Everything in this book can be found on practically every site that covers home working.

As an example, some suggestions are given for what to do from home. One of those examples is "franchising". Not a specific franchise field that works well from home, just "franchising" in general. Then she lists the benefits of franchising - such as free training. (It's not free, it's covered in the franchise fee.) She fails to mention any disadvantages (like paying a percentage of your earnings to the franchise for as long as your remain in business and not being allowed to vary from the prescribed way of doing things.)

This book isn't going to help you be successful. It's not even going to help you decide whether working from is something that will work for you. It is, however, well written and easy to read.
