"I'd like to introduce my son. His name is Aaron, he is 15 years old and growing up very fast. Within the past few months he has grown taller than me. Aaron is good-looking and very talented. As you can see by his artwork, I believe he could already be making money. Aaron loves music and 'spins' records as a hobby. He and I are closer now than we have been since he was very young. Working at home has completely changed our lives and our respect for one another."

A Voice of Experience

EP Motivating Force:
I started working at home due to the shallow job market in my small town. After leaving the casino industry, I had a very hard time finding challenging and rewarding work.
EP Musings:
I left Corporate America for personal reasons (my own). Since leaving, my life has comppletely changed. I am doing what I love at home and have developed a relationship with my 15 year old son that I thought would never be possible. It is still a struggle at times, but absolutely worth it for me both professionally and personally. We have a happy home.
EP Advice:
Develop a Mission Statement and Marketing Plan. Make every effort and try not to get discouraged. Use "who you know" to help with suggestions and possible solutions. Also, to be successful you have to really like what you do and be good at it.
