As my time in the military starts creeping closer and closer to the 20 year mark, one thing is certain...I need to start considering my options for retirement life, especially with the weak state of our economy. Look at most households in the US, it is a rare occurence to find a single income family. It doesn't have to be that way and this e-book gives great insight on how moms can earn their financial freedom without having to sacrifice family.
In her e-book, "Use What You Know: A Business Guide for Busy Moms", Joyce Brewer interviewed several moms in the Atlanta area that launched their own small businesses, ranging from a part-time staffing agency to a scrapbook business. The refreshing theme throughout the book is that none of their businesses spawned from multi-level direct marketing. All of the mompreneurs had a genuine passion and the rest is personal and financial freedom history.
Here are just four tidbits of information that I read and hope you all find useful.
1. "Never underestimate what you are worth. If you say that your time (or product or services) is worth "x" then people either take it or leave it." - Judith Hodara
2. "Remember: Be interested and be interesting! If you listen well, most people will tell you how to sell them." - Kyle Young
3. "Social media has been my best way of informing potential clients that my services exist" - Marybeth Reeves
4. "...local Meetup groups with similar interests are a great way to begin the necessary networking for as successful business" - Emma Sudduth
For all the working moms out there that have considered starting their own work-from-home business, this e-book shows the possibility with helpful insight it provides in building from the ground up. If you would like to purchase Joyce's e-book, you can do so here.
