"What I love most about being a work-at-home parent is that I am able to spend time with my children. We are able to start our day together, spend time after school and our evenings are our own. They are confident that I will always be close at hand and they will always come first in my life. I only have one chance to build a strong, solid relationship with my children, and working at home gives me that opportunity."

Home Career Highlights

Home Biz: I am currently a writer. I am also founder and President of Toddlin' Time, Inc., a program for parents and toddlers.
Mission: To continue to write good material that is a welcome addition to many, many homes and libraries.
Mission Accomplished: "This is a book to read again and again. A great guide to have at your side." A reader of Moneymaking Moms.
Top Products/Services: Moneymaking Moms - How Work at Home Can Work for You, a book for mothers aspiring to set up home based businesses.
Primary Market: General public
Home Career Defining Moment: My greatest achievement thus far is co-writing the book Moneymaking Moms, simply because it offers other mothers the guidance they need to be at home and run a small business. For women who are looking for an alternative to spending many hours a day away from their children, Moneymaking Moms has been referred to as an invaluable tool. I am proud to be able to help those mothers who are in search of a career at home.
Home Career Goal: I need more time! Give me an extra 20 hours each day and I could expand my career ten-fold. The truth is, as my children get older they require more of my time, I spend hours each day carpooling them to various activities and events and it does take time away from my work. However, they do come first and I work when I can.

A Voice of Experience

EP Motivating Force: I wanted to raise my children and be home with them.
EP Musings: There is no question that the positive traits that a home career offers my children are, first and foremost, the knowledge that they have choices. They see first hand that there are options available to them other than putting a child in fulltime day care for several hours each day. Also, they see that, as a woman, I have strengths in the business world and that will aid them in their quest for equal career opportunities in the future.
EP Advice: Stick with it! Put together a good strategy and exercise a marketing plan and promote your business well and give it an opportunity to grow. Don't expect miracles overnight and don't be unrealistic when setting goals for your business. Growing a business takes time, effort and energy and you must be willing to give your business all three key ingredients.
Plan, plan, plan. Plan your day, plan your week, plan your goals, plan your strategy and then follow through.

More & Misc.

Favorite Pastime: Anything that remotely resembles exercise and my writing. I also enjoy spending quiet time with my husband. We have a great relationship and his company is a pleasure.
Favorite Quotes:
"Any mother could perform the jobs of several air traffic controllers with ease."
(American writer Lisa Alther)
