"What I love most about being a work-at-home parent is the opportunity to be there for the kids as they blossom. What I wish the most for my children is success, and to have a good head on their shoulders."

A Voice of Experience

EP Beginnings:
I knew I could make more money and be professionally more satisfied on my own. We had no debt and no kids. My wife, Robbie, was working as a contract nurse and earning killer dough, so we said, "Now's the time." It was a leap of faith. I'd say it was well worth the leap.
EP Advice:
Make sure your finances are in order (don't starve to be an entrepreneur), foster support from your partner, kids, family, friends and business associates, and MAKE THAT LEAP OF FAITH!
