Family & A Career Under One Roof, and deB Sechrist, web producer of Wise
Women of the Web, which features a popular Work-at-Home
Resources Page. Lisa and deB launched the original EP Site at http://members.aol.com/EnParent to
promote Lisa's book and to give deB a high visibility project

by teaming up with Paul and Sarah Edwards, renown self-employment
experts, to co-author The Entrepreneurial Parent: How to Earn
Your Living at Home and Still Enjoy Your Family, Your Work and
Your Life (Tarcher/Putnam, May, 2002).
