The Women's Small Business Start-Up Kit by Peri Pakroo is one of the best How-To business books I've ever read. It was so full of tips and instructions that I didn't feel that I had to go to any other source. I've always thought that Nolo's Business books were very useful, but with this one they have definitely surpassed themselves. I would recommend this to anyone even thinking about starting their own small business and in this uncertain economy, small business owners need all the help they can get. Kudos to Nolo and the author and thanks! (Pam Headrick AThirstyBlog.com 2010-08-16)

Let's Get Unbalanced: Digging into Work post by Peri Pakroo: Work-life balance consistently ranks near the top of concerns for self-employed women. With kids in the mix, balance can be even more elusive. But sometimes the challenge isn't maintaining balance but finding a way to throw it to the wind (for a while). (Mamapedia voices, www.mamapedia.com 2010-05-01)
Pakroo, an attorney and small-business expert, plumps up her earlier book, The Small Business Start-Up Kit: A Step-by-Step Legal Guide (6th ed., 2010), by adding material that focuses on the unique needs of women entrepreneurs. Both books offer solid advice on crafting a business plan, designing a marketing strategy, choosing the appropriate legal structure, handling employment ssues, and working with legal and financial professionals. In this new volume, Pakroo adds an opening chapter on work/life balance that discusses working with spouses, mixing business and children, and designing a business structure compatible with career and family goals. She covers the challenges of home-based businesses; considers financial, tax, and health-care considerations for women; and provides a list of agencies that serve women in business. There are tips, anecdotes, and practical insights from a number of accomplished women entrepreneurs on such topics as business travel with children and creative ways to reduce child care costs. The accompanying CD includes extended interviews and a collection of financial forms and worksheets. (Joan Pedzich, Harris Beach PLLC, Rochester, NY Library Journal 2010-05-15)
Women's Small Business Start-Up Kit is a women’s business book of substance, not gender-pandering fluff. It concretely explains legal and bureaucratic rules--from drafting a business plan and raising start-up money to online marketing--and addresses women’s concerns without stereotyping them. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
