All parents of young children who are struggling to balance work
and family could benefit from learning more about "Entrepreneurial
Parents (EPs)." EPs are parents who are self-employed or
working towards self-employment, and include all business owners
in the SOHO (small office/home office) workforce, as well as
freelancers, consultants and independent contract workers.
- A 1998 consumer
household survey conducted by IDC estimates that 10.7 million
households in America have parents of dependent children (17
years or younger) working in income-generating home office activities.
- A 1999 survey
of the Young Entrepreneurs Organization conducted by the Kauffman
Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership reveals that "Balance
in life" and "How to be a better spouse and parent"
are the most pressing issues among members.
