From Library Journal
Technological advances and an increased number of people choosing to earn their living at home have given rise to unlimited opportunities for home-based businesses. The authors, who are considered experts on the topic (their 13 books include Working from Home: Everything You Need To Know About Living and Working Under the Same Roof), have geared their book toward working parents or entrepreneurial parents (EPs) who want to be more involved in their children's lives. Drawing from surveys of at-home working parents, the authors have developed 101 profiles, which they note do not cover the full realm of home-career possibilities but are certainly wide-ranging. Each profile includes a job description, transferable skills needed, an industry insight, marketing, revenue and pricing structure, additional cost items, and recommended resources. Also included are each subject's name, age, address, children's ages, and business web site, a special feature that adds credibility to the book. Other topics discussed are the big issues of economic trade-offs, health insurance, and time management. Unique in its coverage, the book usefully spells out both the advantages and the disadvantages of working at home and includes practical exercises, worksheets, directories, and additional resources.
