Format: Paperback
Work Women Want answers the questions asked by so many working women today, "Is it really possible to combine motherhood with a career and do both well? Can I still make good money working from home? How can I convince my boss that working part-time is win-win? Is working at home or part-time right for me?" Jennifer shares her journey to a successful home business and her experiences working part-time for an employer. She also interviews 11 women who have each taken their own path to combining work and children. Some of the ways to make money from home include: eBay sales, share trading, party planning, blogging, and providing professional services. Work Women Want is a great book for women that want to make decent money and still be there for their kids. I highly recommend it.

Title: Work Women Want
Author: Jennifer Forest
Publisher: Artisan House
ISBN: 978-0-646-90092-6

"Is it possible to have flexibility and hours that let you be there for the kids, while still earning good money in a satisfying career? I don't mean small amounts of token or pin money. I mean money that makes a good contribution in the average middle-class household budget or completely replaces a wage." Jennifer Forest states in her book, "Work Women Want - Work at Home or Go Part-Time."

In this two hundred and twenty-three page paperback book, the Australian author discusses the topic of getting out of the regular go-to-work rat race to be home with children and still make a decent income. The book is geared toward young mothers, but men, students and retired individuals could consider many of the income-generating suggestions based at home or on a part time basis.

After an introductory chapter about why a reader would consider the contents in the book reiterating women trying to do "it all," there is a chapter about the writer's personal twenty-two year education and employment path.

The third chapter explains the format of the majority of the book that gives seven questions for the reader to ask regarding personality, time, money, skills, mindset, authenticity and learning when approaching what type of at-home or part time job to acquire.

The next eight chapters go into specific types of home-based jobs that range from being a party planner or multi-level marketer, selling homemade crafts, offering professional services, trading on the stock market, doing internet tasks involving blogging, selling and surveys, having part-time positions that involve children and going back to school for advancement.

I have to admit, this was another freebie I found on a forum so I didn't expect it to be such the gem that it is! It is chock-full of case studies from women with all sorts of backgrounds and different experiences. If you don't find some inspiration from this book, nothing will inspire you!

I like this book for the clear way it presents the information and gets one thinking about the issues related to starting a home-based business or going part-time. The author asks lots of questions that we're encouraged to ask ourselves - whether we answer them honestly is up to us of course! :-)

In an effort to explore the possiblities out there for women who want a different style of working, the book covers a breadth of business ventures and delves into the motivations and circumstances of the individuals behind the businesses. I find this book useful in that it gives an insight into a number of different ventures. Given the breadth, it would be unreasonable to expect this book to have all the detail on any one type of venture, but there are other books out there for that purpose.

Handy too are the key questions and resources at the end of each chapter.

It's a thought provoking book for anyone interested in considering changing the way they work.
