Question: Who is the intended audience?
Answer: Women (and some men!) who are looking for a way to start a flexible career in their chosen field.
Q: What is the book about?
A: Women today are looking for ways to maintain or build a flexible career while they have a family. Full-Time Woman, Part-Time Career is the first book of its kind to bridge this gap for professional women who do not want to set up a “typical” home-based business selling kitchen accessories or cosmetics. This book teaches women what they need to do in order to set up their business and get started, set their rates, market themselves and their services, and gain new clients and grow their business. The result is that women can build a flexible home-based business in as little as two years, so that they can have the time they need to work from home while raising a family.
Q: Why are you the best person to write this book?
A: For 11 years, Karen Steede Terry has been self-employed as a sought-after independent consultant and software instructor. Her rich knowledge and firsthand experience results in a very practical book filled with advice, tips, and “how-to” information for women who want to start a business or go out on their own.
Q: How is this book different from other books on this topic?
A: Most other books on starting a home-based business feature “party-planning” businesses that require you to sell products to family and friends. Full-Time Woman, Part-Time Career is different because it is written specifically for professional, technical, and career-oriented women who want to start a business in their existing field using their unique skills and abilities. It bridges the gap for these women who struggle with the question of how to raise a family while maintaining a career.
