How many of us have wanted to stay at home with our children and bring a steady income at the same time? How many women hate working at their current job and moving nowhere and feeling like a slave to the system? How many women would just want to take their career in their own hands and start a business on their own?
"Full-Time Woman, Part-Time Career" by Karen Steede Terry is a comprehensive guide to starting your own business that is not only successful but most importantly, fits your personality, your lifestyle and your own expectations. The author divides the book into short chapters focusing on the very basis of making it work on your own. From the very beginning of the book, she helps us see what it takes to start your own business and what kind of qualities are essential in doing that. She gives a lot of examples and even samples of conversation starters to promote your business and to get through to a wider range of potential customers. She goes through the most essential subjects, such as the start-up cost, setting up the office, writing business plans and whether you should incorporate or not. She explains it all in a very clear and comprehensive way, making it easier for us to make the right decisions that would benefit us in the best way. The author devotes a big part of the book to advertising your business, getting and maintaining customers and growing your business bigger and more successful. She also expands certain types of businesses, such as professional coaching, freelance writing, teaching software computer classes and public speaking, where the reader can find much more detail and tips for starting one of these businesses. Finally, the end of the book consists of very valuable appendix, where we can find all kinds of addresses and phone numbers to business registration agencies, networking organizations, franchise opportunities etc.
I really liked the fact that the book was addressed directly and solely to women. The author knows exactly what kind of obstacles women encounter in starting their own business and how to work to overcome them. The language is very clear, comprehensive and to the point. "Full-Time Woman, Part-Time Career" is definitely a book to be read if you consider starting your own business.

Admit it; you have sat around dreaming about being your own boss! Hanging out your own shingle and chancing it out on your own, right? If so, this is a great reality check and resource guide to the "real" pros and cons of starting your own business. Whether you are looking to go part time or full bore, you will get solid advice on the key issues you will face along the way. The author leads you through; asking yourself the tough questions, selling yourself, freelance or part-time, public speaking, professional behavior and the ups and downs of working from home. I really liked the use of case studies to drive home the messages.
Well worth your time and money.
