 "Starting my own business at home has shown my children that you can do anything you set your mind to. They know that if they have a strong interest and belief in something, and if they follow through, anything can happen. My children are already thinking about the businesses they want to start when they get out of school!"

Home Career Highlights
Home Biz: Conrad Concepts, Inc. develops Allergy Awareness Products for children. Our Allergy Watch products can be worn by children, to alert others that they are severely allergic to certain foods or substances. All our products can be personalized with any allergy.

Mission Statement: To raise the awareness level in our communities of the severe allergies and chronic illnesses our children are faced with every single day of their lives. They are becoming more prevalent with each passing day, and we need to help our children "Watch Out for a Break Out."
Home Career Defining Moment: My greatest home career related achievement so far is just the fact that the product I have developed is actually being bought by families, via mail and Internet. I am so happy that my products will serve so many needy children and families, and hopefully will keep them safe from harmful allergens.
Home Career Goals: My present business needs would be more clients, money and support. I would really like to branch out and offer more safety products for children, but I can only take one step at a time with the funds I have available at present. I would love any advice or contacts other EPs have to offer!
Home Career Advice: Start out slowly and really think about what you want to accomplish. Set small goals, and as you accomplish them, set new and greater ones. Writing a business plan is very important, but if your business is small and you really don't know how to set up a business plan, taking one small step at a time is the best advice I can give.

A Voice of Experience

EP Motivating Force:
To spend more time with my children and to establish a business that I really believe in. My children were in daycare since they were 3 months old, and they really didn't want to be there anymore.
EP Musings:
I love being able to be with my family whenever I want. I choose my own hours, work when I want to, and I'm able to continue doing a job that I love and really believe in!
EP Advice:
Start out slow, do what you love to do, and believe in yourself.
