Recently, it became clear to me that I needed to start a new phase in my life. I had a dream, and although it definitely had meaning and purpose, I lacked the knowledge and skills to "make it all come together".
Enter- "So You Want to Be a Work-At-Home Mom", and it's co-author Jill Hart.I have met Jill, and definitely was interested in her book after meeting with her! I have dog-eared pages, highlighted, reviewed, and prayed over this book. There are so many practical tips to promoting my business (a toughy for me), time management, keeping focused... so many issues and leads to getting further information as well.
I will be keeping this book as a reference, and when I get discouraged or lose my way, I will reconnect with it like an old friend.
DEFINITELY recommend!

A Christian's guide to starting a home-based business

Do you want to work at home and don't know where to begin? Do you feel your lack of experience and fear of the unknown will hinder your ability for success? Jill Hart and Diana Ennen were once right where you are. They struggled with challenges, learned from them and twenty or so years later gained experience and decided to share it with others. "So You Want to be a Work-At-Home Mom" is the culmination of their years of experience as they share what works and what doesn't in the world of at-home work--real work--not stuffing envelopes or other potential scams.

Each chapter is full of helpful info from making the decision to work-at-home to choosing a business, marketing and client relations and staying motivated. You will love the down-to-earth approach and the easy-to-read and follow guidelines. Most, if not all, of your questions will be answered in this short, quickly read book.

When I began to thumb through "So You Want to be a Work-at-Home Mom" by Jill Hart & Diana Ennem all I could think was "where was this book thirty-some years ago when I was a stay-at-home wife and mother?" I instantly knew I wanted to pass the information it contains on to my daughter-in-law and apply what I learned to my writing adventure.

Jill and Diana guide women--Christian or not--through the decision making process of running a home-based business to types of enterprises to consider. They didn't miss a beat when they talk about marketing and networking. They suggest creative ideas for office space with an activity place for the kids. They didn't forget about the necessary disciplines of time management, bookkeeping, and record-maintenance for making it a successful venture.

However, I kept wishing they had put the basic marketing information in the chapter with reference to an appendix for details. And, I found this little 224 page book jammed packed with so much valuable information I didn't want to forget, it needs to come with a highlighter and notebook. (BTW - I did give a copy to my daughter-in-law.)

This book is a must read for any women who wants to stay at home with her children but, feels pressure to contribute to the family finances. Jill and Diana examine spiritual and emotional reasons that draw women towards working at home. They use relevant scripture to support growing faith along with business. This book is overflowing with practical information, expert advice, free resources, and so much more. It is written in easy to understand language that makes you feel like Jill and Diana are sitting with you every step of the way. I highly recommend it to everyone who is even considering working from home.
