Making Work at Home Work

As a young mom, there was never a doubt - will I stay home with my kids or will I continue to work? We always knew I would stay home as long and as much as I could. And that is exactly what I have done - now, have I always been able to just be a Mom?? Nope, I've had to divide my time between being a mom and working from home. SO, I sure wish I would have had this book YEARS ago!!

Mary M. Byers’ new book, Making Work at Home Work, would have been my "bible" during those early years of staying at home AND trying to make an at-home job work together! I needed this kind of advice back then, but am even benefiting from it now!

In Making Work at Home Work, Byers offers work-at-home moms practical advice about combining the role of being a mom and a successful business woman. She covers things like:

Deciding why you are working at home - how much of your time do you really NEED to give to your job?

Making time to relax.

Setting boundaries in order to protect your family and yourself.

How do develop a plan for childcare.

Organizing your business.

How do deal with all the stuff life throws at you and still have an organized business and life.

Here is one of my favorite things that Byers' has done with this book. All throughout the book are interviews with real work-at-home moms who share their stories - what has worked for them and what hasn't. You can read their stories and be challenged and encouraged. Byers offers great insight for work-at-home moms who want to juggle it all and juggle it well!

Don't leave yet - you need to know that the author, Mary M. Byers, is currently hosting a contest on her blog. The winner will receive a copy of the book AND a $25 gift certificate to Amazon.com! Visit the book’s blog tour headquarters for more information.
