Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

In the 1990s, a few clairvoyant writers zeroed in on Americans’ yearning to work from home—and quite a few corporations took note. A decade later, similar advice is being proffered to women from Johnson and Spizman, two mediagenic executives. What’s the change from a decade ago? First, this is more inspirational than practical; the authors do cover writing business plans, for example, but in outline manner. Individual anecdotes are plentiful, as are action steps at the end of each chapter. Second, it is geared to women who, to be honest, are usually the ones demanding career flexibility. Third, it’s filled with rather basic information, the ABC’s of asking to become a teleworker or a quiz testing homebound readiness. To give the authors their due, there is an important chapter on avoiding scams. Good tips and good words abound, although it’s somewhat surprising that two such accomplished professionals push the same kind of work-at-home occupations for women, such as interior design, instead of helping blaze a trail. --Barbara Jacobs

The book was not really what I expected. I read it but it was not all about working from home and some of the sites she recommends cost money to sign up for although she states in the book you should never have to pay a fee. It was okay but I would have rather checked it out from a library or borrowed rather then waste my hard earned money on it. Most of the sites she gave I am already aware of.

Will Work from Home, by Tory Johnson and Robyn Freedman Spizman

This book is written by women for women.

Tory Johnson is the founder and CEO of Women for Hire. Robyn Freedman Spizman is a well known consumer advocate.

The book's premise is that very few can afford not to work at all, but women need more flex time for children and aging parents, among other things.

The book teaches you how to:
* Take your current position home
* Find a new company whose policies will allow you to work from home
* Research a product you believe in, and sell it from home
* Start your own business, doing something you love, for a minimal initial investment

The book includes real-life stories, a step-by-step plan to get started, resource guides, and lists of scams to avoid.

This is a terrific book. It's brand new, so it is up-to-date, and has many pages of helpful web sites, contacts, action steps and time savings tips, as well as various business models to consider throughout the book.

The authors bring up many options for you to think over in planning your move to working at home, and help you see what the big picture will look like--balancing work, home, family, other commitments, alone time.

There are various contacts for helping you continue to do the same job, just at home, or branching out into something totally new--doing computer tech support or accounting for others, doing a daycare or catering business, or doing a direct sales business, to name just a few. Service businesses are growing in demand, and there are enough resources in the book to help you get started doing your own research into your niche.

The book touches on accounting, billing, advertising, marketing, and is helpful--both general enough to help you think outside the box, and specific enough to help you think through your situation--regarding what would really work for you.

This book is full of information! I love watching Tory when she is on Good Morning America and couldn't wait for the book to come out. It really helped me think outside the box and get going! It is a must read! I started my own house cleaning business. It fits perfectly in my schedule so I can still homeschool my two teenage sons. I am my own boss and I love it. I would recommend it to everyone.

This book is filled with very helpful information. There are websites listed that address almost any topic about working from home. This book starts from the begining of doing a resume, to setting up your own business and what you need to accomplish before actually working from home.

This book goes over several scenarios where you might want to work from home. It is written for women, however, the advice is applicable to men in many instances as well.

The authors cover how to transition your office job to a home office, looking for jobs that are designed to be done from home, starting a business of your own and direct sales from home.

They get you to take a honest look at yourself to determine if working at home is a good fit for you. This is so important, because as wonderful as working from home might sound, there really are some big considerations that you need to keep in mind to be successful.

The section that gives an overview on what you need to do to start up a new business venture (i.e., insurance, EIN, zoning, accounting, taxes, etc.) would be helpful to anyone who is new to the entrepreneur route.

I'd say this book is a great place to start from.

This book is a must read for someone who is looking to begin working from home but does not know quite how to go about doing it. This book has an extraordinary amount of information as far as websites and corporations who are looking for people who are interested in working in a customer service type business from home. It even offered places to acquire training if it's needed. The only thing that I didn't get from the book was how to begin doing something basic and simple as just data entry from home. I didn't want the stress of taking phone calls at home. So I didn't get very much information about the data entry field. Other than that the book was great!
