Also, just because the title of the book makes it sound like it is only for moms with babies or very young children, don't think this book can't help you if you don't have kids or have older kids or teenagers. There are some helpful tips for juggling the needs and demands of young children along with your business, but even as the mom of an adult child and an older teenager, I found this book to be filled with advice and information that is relevant to me and to almost anyone starting a business online. It was well worth the money and the time spent reading it and I will be using it as a reference guide for a long time to come.
Job well done, Danielle and Aliza!
The information here is actually unique - a lot of books like this are just kind of the same old info repackaged, nothing new or helpful. But this book has a lot of great ideas, helpful tips, and the personal stories help you really visualize how you can make things work for yourself.
I lost my job while on Maternity leave, and decided, with NO real computer or tech knowledge, to start a website and grow a business. My "Busy Mom Solution" site is now doing really well - and I sure could have used this book when I was getting started!! :) But even though the book is targeted more towards women who are looking to make a change, it still has incredibly helpful information for someone like me who has already done it!
I received my copy on Saturday. By Sunday evening I'd read portions of the book twice and had a number of notes in the margins. The book is a quick read. You don't need an MBA to get through the terms because the writers break those things down for the reader without insulting our intelligence. (They get it. They've been in this, "Okay I want to start a business. Now what?" stage too.) The tone of the book is very friendly.
The writers give tips and also share lessons learned in their respective journeys to establish their businesses. I love that they even share the mistakes they've made along the way. They also cover the personal issues that crop up over the course of starting/running a business. Both share their experiences on the delicate balancing act many a mom struggles with. (And how to combat the "mom guilt".)
There are some inspiring stories sprinkled throughout the book about other moms who've gone on to create successful businesses. Overall, there's just a lot of valuable information!
I finished the book feeling empowered, energized and supported. If you're thinking of starting a business (or even a "jobbie") and are unsure of your steps to doing so, this is a must-have!
Mom Incorporated is a must-read for moms seeking balance in their lives and wondering whether working from home is a viable option. I especially love the downloadable worksheets that help you take a good hard look at your business plan, they are at [...]
Even as a seasoned entrepreneur, I got some fabulous ideas. This is a Must-Have for mom entrepreneurs (and mom entrepreneurs-to-be).
Don't wait any longer. Get your business going now!
