NAEP Survey


Name (Optional):

1. Which of the following statements best describes you? (Rate from 1-6, using each number only once -- 1 best describes you.)

I don't need to read any more "tips" and advice on how to run my home career -- there's too much information out there already. But I would LOVE to meet some people that do what I do, and share advice and support in that way.

I don't see having the time to go to meetings, but if the NAEP publications ("A Parent's Guide to Home Business" and subscription to the print version of EPnews) contain pertinent information and "speaks" to me directly, that alone would justify my membership.

I would enjoy actively participating in NAEP by serving on committees and task forces. I like getting involved.

I'm looking to submit articles to NAEP publications so I can exercise my writing skills and spread the word about what I do.

I need an organization that enhances the image of my work choice. I'm tired of not being taken seriously because I work at home.

I want to be part of an organization that shares my values, such as balancing work and life at my own pace, planning long-range career goals that include diverse work options, and having the freedom to pursue my personal and professional goals creatively.

Please indicate other ways you might value an organization for work-at-home parents.



2. Please rate the following membership benefits, on a scale of 1-12. (Use each number only once; 1 is the most valuable benefit NAEP can offer you.)

My Profile Page will explain the type of work I do, type of work I am currently looking for, name of my business & logo if I have one, short bio, "mission statement," and it will also offer advice and inspiration to help aspiring "Entrepreneurial Parents." I can use my page as my web address on business cards, et al., or as an additional address to use for specific purposes if I already have a Web site of my own.

Monthly local support group through EP Chapters.

Special Interest Groups (by field) within the association to help brainstorm ideas for my business.

Steep discounts off select business services and premium information tools for work-at-home professionals, including: group medical insurance, credit card processing, long distance savings, office supplies, car rentals, etc.

Searchable database just for the EP Showcase. Companies looking to hire freelance consultants can search the Showcase for keywords so that those looking for a particular profile could see if yours fits.
