About this Survey

Paul and Sarah Edwards, best-selling authors, columnists and speakers on new and better ways to live and work, have teamed up with Oxygen Media's home office expert and founder of, Lisa Roberts, to write The Entrepreneurial Parent: How to Earn Your Living at Home in the Internet Age and Still Enjoy Your Family, Your Life and Your Work. They are currently conducting research for their book and are looking for parents -- Dads, Moms and Parenting Couples -- who are juggling working at home with parenting issues.

If that's you, stand up and be counted! Your participation in this survey will be of tremendous value, and the results will be shared with others across the nation and around the world who long to join the emerging "Entrepreneurial Parent" workforce. Whether being an EP is or is not working for you, we invite you to share your experiences above!

DEADLINE for Survey Responses: November 31, 2000


Because EPs are busy folks, we've provided both a "Short Survey" and an "Extended Survey." Our short version is Anonymous, will only take a few minutes to fill out, and will be used to collect statistical data on EPs. The Extended Survey may take up to 15 minutes and your comments and quotes may be used -- with your permission (credited or anonymous) -- in our book.

Please note: To be quoted and/or profiled in our book, you will need to fill out our extended survey. Since selected profiles may be offered further promotional opportunities that Paul & Sarah or Lisa can pass on, feel free to let us get to know you and your business/career as well as you'd like!

Privacy Concerns

We value your privacy! The only required field in either survey is your email address since this will be used to track submissions and alert you when the book is off the press. None of your contact info will ever be passed on to a third party, and all responses to our questionnaire will remain confidential unless you grant your permission for publication in our book. Any questions? Just ask us!
