A View from the Tub: An Inspiring and Practical Guide to Working from Home Paperback – January 1, 2000
A MUST READ for budding work-at-home entrepreneurs. Well worth the cost in the first chapter alone! -- Amy Stavis, Publisher/Editor of Tableware Today
Do not be fooled. This one should be read, and reread, both for a home-based business or telework arrangement. -- Training Magazine, July, 2001
Szerman's straightforward approach will make you think seriously and help you plan for success before making the leap. -- Michele Marrinan, Former Editor of Home Worker Magazine
About the Author
When Millie Szerman appeared on the front cover of Money Magazine wearing nothing but a bubble bath, a red telephone and a smile, the business world sat up and took notice. Szerman, who has been running her public relations and marketing consulting firm, New Directions, from her home for more than a decade, was enthusiastically celebrated in that issue as one of the most successful home-based businesses in the country. The article demonstrated how having the freedom to take a business call in the tub is (or can be) a reality for scores of home workers.
Since that time, Szerman has been inundated with inquiries -from telephone calls, Internet e-mails, and letters. She has appeared on numerous television talk shows, conducted hundreds of radio, magazine and newspaper interviews, including the Wall Street Journal, Home Office Computing, Good Morning, Utah, Fox Live (Chicago), Good Day, Atlanta, and Woman to Woman (Los Angeles).
Szerman's work and personal experience has led her to where she is today: a highly successful entrepreneur who has the knowledge and expertise to lead others down their own road of success!

After reading A View From The Tub, I was very motivated by all the practical advice and the "real life experiences" that the book provides. I was able to tailor that advice to my own situation and am enjoying a welcome level of success in my new endeavor. For the first time, I have email and actually have my own web site [...]. I am meeting a completely new group of people and expanding my business daily. The book helped me find direction and helps me stay focused.
During all of this, my husband was already working from home. He is able to telecommute for a large company in data base administration. The book provided both of us with simple changes we could make to his work in order to diminish the impact on our home. It has given him better focus while at work and more clarity on when to leave the office behind. I cannot thank Millie enough for all that she has done for me and my family.
As a writer working from home, I found Millie Szerman's guide book on how to work out of one's home full of how-tos and what-ifs that gave even an old hack like me a few new ideas about how to organize, how to maintain my sanity.
A View from the Tub would be equally useful for someone who is considering starting a home-based business.
I appreciated the chapter on "how to tune up your one-man band." The poet in me loved the "eating an elephant" metaphor as a way to multitask. The way the author addresses "the loneliness factor" was especially useful for someone who had convinced herself that she loves working without a soul in the room.
What it all adds up to is that this author/publicist has not just researched the subject but has lived it.
A View From the Tub includes a checklist, case studies, a resource section, a place to take notes and quotes from the likes of Ben Franklin and Ann Landers. It is a great book for "home study"-sorry I just couldn't resist the pun.
Carolyn Howard-Johnson, Author of "This is the Place"
Like any good good teacher/mentor who is worth their weight in gold, Millie selflessly gives her student readers the tools of the trade to do with them what they may.
Make this book your First Investment in your own HBB and you are bound to get off on the right track! Thank-you Millie!
Under normal circumstances, I would have considered reading a book on home based business a chore, as I am in the process of climbing the corporate ladder. I can only say how glad I am that I read it from end to end.
I feel this book is not only for people running home based businesses. There is a whole lot of valuable information which can be translated into being more successful in corporate America. I feel that is the real beauty of this book.
While reading this book, I had the feeling that Millie was actually talking to me and her positive and upbeat tone left me feeling refreshed, motivated and maybe even a little more confident, as being my own boss is an ultimate personal goal for myself down the line. Plus I learned so many new things!!!
Thank you Millie, for this wonderful gift.
