In August 1999 en-parent.com was selected by Parenting Magazine as one of the
Top 3 Work-at-Home Sites on the Internet!
 
"Whether you're itching to start a home-based business but don't know where to begin, or you've already launched one but need to have some questions answered, the solution is probably on the Internet.
 
Here are three of the best websites on working at home:
www.quicken.com/small_business <snip>
www.workingsolo.com <snip>
www.en-parent.com
 
"One of the best features of the Entrepreneurial Parent site is the roster of experts on such topics as record-keeping, home-office design, and building your own low-cost website. You can submit text and photos for a personal profile -- it's a nifty way to promote your business on the Internet."
