More and more women are looking for opportunities to work at home these days. The reasons are varied—layoffs in the workplace, the desire to stay home with children, the desire to be one’s own boss, and so on. I have a home-based business, myself, writing and selling my Super Star Speech books. I also provide occasional speech therapy from my home. Although I have both the desire and the financial need right now to increase my income, I want to continue staying home with Emily and homeschool her.
So, when I had the opportunity to review Making Money From Home, I jumped at the chance. The author, Donna Partow is a successful entrepreneur herself, having started dozens of businesses, some very successful, and some not so.
The book is full of, not only great ideas for home businesses, but good information about how to implement them. Each chapter ends with assignments for the reader to aid in choosing a business, making a business plan, organizing a home office, structuring the day, and more. A majority of the book is dedicated to the internet—e-books, marketing, blogging, and other topics that are critical to operating a business in 2010. She even encourages women to operate more than one business at a time. Throughout the book are numerous links to additional information at her website and websites of others. She also helps the reader to identify the work-at-home scams that are so prevalent on the web.
I came away from my reading of the book with several new ideas to market Super Star Speech better and for other income producing activities. I now plan to go back and read the book more carefully, doing the assignments, and looking up the links.
If you are a woman who is interested in making money from home, I highly recommend this book.
I received a free review copy of this book from Tyndale House Publishers.
